War and conflicts: Israel’s participation in the competition has caused strong reactions around the world. In the host city of Malmö, over 10,000 people had turned up to demonstrate against Israel.

– I have not seen the demonstrations. I’m here, I’m focused on music, joy and love, and that’s what matters today, she told NTB earlier in the day.

In the semi-finals, Golan was met with both cheers and boos when she performed her song.

On the TV broadcast, it was difficult to hear the reactions in the hall.

– Mixed response in the hall, said NRK’s ​​commentator Marte Stokstad.
