Netta had won HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion on the 13th of February. She was chosen to represent Israel at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon. Her song Toy was released yesterday.

This is a very hard song to review. I really like the melody and the use of instruments and sounds. I just don’t like the lyrics and the voice that goes along with that melody. I appreciate fun things, but this is just too much for me. The chicken sounds don’t add anything to the song, in my opinion. I just take it less serious because of that. I get that without that, the song would be less special. But I think it would be better. And I wonder how she’s going to perform this live. The song is very catchy and so memorable, but I hope that the performance won’t turn it into a joke. Overall, I like some parts of it but the entire thing is too silly for me. 5/10
