Dana International was once a winner. In mid May, she presented with a song called 'Ding dong' and was left behind in the semi finals.
Israel usually selects a singer internally and then a song is selected via televoting. This year they had the artists submit a song and held a contest of 10 songs. So, Dana won. There were other songs, more modern and with better lyrics; they chose Dana.
The song was cleverly written and very pleasant I suppose. The issues was Dana International who appeared awkward and uncomfortable and at times not singing her song to the best of her ability. She wore a very interesting dress, more bread basket than frock.
