ISRAEL – We all know that Rome is one of 12 cities currently interested to submit an official bid for hosting the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest.
But some of us disagree. Rome is definitely out of the picture because of Netta Barzilai, the 2018 Eurovision winner from Israel!
Yes, you all think, what the heck are you thinking you b****rd oikotimes and you write this sh*t?
Your question is amazingly justified. But as our colleagues in songfestival.be prove, Netta’s prediction of the host city, it works almost like a jinx for them.
🇮🇱 Will Rome's bid for Eurovision 2022 hosting suffer Netta's jinx? (read more here https://t.co/edg5V0xudc)#oikotimes #eurovision #eurovisiongr #umk21 #euroviisut #eestilaul2021 #pabandomišnaujo #dmgp #destinoeurovision #ltvsupernova #ema2021 #survivorgr

In 2018, when she won and went on stage she invited us all to Jerusalem. Did we ever go to Jerusalem? No…!
In 2019, when Duncan won and Netta gave him the trophy she shouted that she can’t wait to go to Amsterdam. Did we ever go to Amsterdam? No…!
A few days ago, after Italy won the contest, Netta made a video on Instagram awaiting the time she goes to Rome next year.
Let’s bet: Will we go to Rome now that Netta mentioned it?
We will find out in a few weeks…
