BIRTHDAY: Dana International from Israel is 47 today
It’s winner time! Yeah, winner time! You know the ones. They scored more points than the countries they were up against. Except in one instance. But that’s another story.
Plenty of countries have won more than once, and some have done it on consecutive occasions. That’s a feat in itself, isn’t it Ireland? But Israel also did it in the 1970s. They then had to wait 19 years till their next win. That came from today’s birthday girl דנה אינטרנשיונל/Dana International (né ירון כהן/Yaron Cohen), which came the last time we were in the UK of stuff. Some say it was a great show. I’d agree, as it went to the last set of votes, and two other countries could have beaten Ms International. Still, a winner she is, and Israel’s last. Until you know when. And it’s fair to say that after her win, the contest would never be the same again.
