As predicted, Israel’s entry in this year’s Eurovision song contest did not fair well, placing second last.
But before you despair, just consider who actually won the contest:
This is not a joke. A group wearing latex monster masks, and singing a song called Hard Rock Hallelujah, won Eurovision, bringing the contest to even greater levels of lameness than even I had imagined.
So while Israel did not fare well, the contest has lost all credibility anyway (assuming it had any to begin with).
The real losers of the evening were anyone watching this garbage.

Update: Still don’t believe me? Here is the winning song.
