The Eurovision Song Contest 1978 was the 23rd edition series, and was held on April 22, 1978 in Paris. With Denise Fabre and Léon Zitrone as the presenters, the contest was won by Izhar Cohen & the Alphabeta who represented Israel, with their song "A-Ba-Ni-Bi"

. The winning entry is a love song sung in the Hebrew equivalent of Pig Latin. Translating the translation of the title it's rendered "I love you" in English. This was Israel's first Eurovision win. The win caused problems for several North African and Middle-Eastern nations that were televising the contest, even though they were not participating. According to author and historian John Kennedy O'Connor in his book The Eurovision Song Contest - The Official History, when Israel became the clear winners during the voting, most of the Arabic stations ended their transmission of the contest. Jordanian TV finished the show with a photo of a bunch of daffodils on screen [1], later announcing that the Belgian entry (which finished second) was the winner.
