#EurovisionAgain : Dana International wins again the 1998 edition
#Eurovision Again gives the chance to all Eurovision fans to watch once again past editions of the Eurovision Song Contests and enjoy the Eurovision party feeling from each contest. Each Saturday at 21:00 CET fans can watch the past editons and feel the joy and excitement of the contest without any interruptions. Last night the 1998 edition hit the screens once again, on ESC Youtube Channel followed by the online voting that crowned Dana International winner of the contest.
The first to launch such initiative, was a group of fans that uploaded past events, while EBU followed through its official Eurovision Youtube Channel. Once the competing part of the contest is over, the audience has the chance to cast its votes and make up a new result for each edition.
Last evening the 198 editon of the Eurovision Song Contest hit the screens once again with Dana and her entry "Diva " winning the online voting while United Kingdomg with Imaani confimed its 2nd placing. The Netherlands came 3rd taking Malta's position which was the actual 3rd runner up in 1998.
