Eurovision is an international music competition, organized by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the largest public television association in Europe. The first edition took place in 1956, in Lugano, Switzerland. Uninterruptedly broadcast for 60 years, the show has become one of the world's longest and most watched television programs. Among the artists who have been on the Eurovision stage over the years include ABBA, Julio Iglesias, Celine Dion, Johnny Logan.

Less than two months before the European music competition, the bookmakers favor the Israeli singer: after having made a shy entry in the top ten, she climbs the first place, followed by the Czechs Mikolas Josef, with “Lie to Me” and Estonian representative Elina Nechayeva with “La Forza”, according to Agerpres.

Netta Barzila made a sensation when she presented her song "Toy" with electronic pop accents and African rhythms, making a unique combination in the history of this musical competition. Potential voters from all over Europe appreciated the song for his lyrics, which sometimes refer to the campaign against Sexual Harassment #MeToo, as well as the few "strangles" in the play, including hen sounds, as well as a suggestive choreography in the video, writes The Times of Israel. 

Elina Nechayeva gave a powerful vocal performance of “La Forza”, amplified by a special dress which captures projections of lava and natural landscapes. The act reinforces Elina’s stage presentation, visualizing her as a force of nature.

Since choosing Mikolas Josef’s catchy tune, “Lie To Me”, in a national public vote however, their chances of going all the way have sky rocketed to the point where Mikolas is one of the front-runners. Straight after the vote on 29th January that confirmed “Lie To Me” as the winner, the Czech Republic’s odds continued to become better and better.

Sweden stays steady in sixth position, even as its odds have narrowed slightly with some betting agencies following Benjamin Ingrosso’s win. Norway has moved from 20th favourite ahead of the final to 9th, after Rybak was announced at their representative. While Alexander Rybak’s “How to Write a Song” was clearly loved by the Norwegian audience, it’s not clear how well it will translate internationally. It’s among the most divisive tracks of the year on social media, with many suggesting that Norwegians voted for sentimental reasons that other Europeans will not feel as strongly.

The song “A Matter of Time” continues Belgium’s recent trend of pop songs with a dark and mysterious edge. As with Loïc and Blanche, Sennek delivers something that straddles pop and art. Her tune has drawn comparisons to Bond anthems and Conchita Wurst’s “Rise Like a Phoenix.” And her music video has earned plaudits for its cinematic feel and some very memorable shots from an emptied swimming pool.

Over the past two years, bookmakers have mistakenly named the winner, but they were pretty close, as they ranked the Portuguese Salvador Sobral and the Ukrainian Jamala - the winners of the 2017 and 2016 editions - second and respectively , third.  By contrast, in 2015 the bookmakers were wholly favorable to Swedish Mans Zelmerlöw who won, according to predictions, the Eurovision edition of that year with the song "Heroes".
