    Israel has only an outside chance of winning the top spot at this year's Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday evening in Dusseldorf.

    Bookmaker Paddy Power is putting former champion Dana International's chances at 80 to 1, while Ladbrokes is offering odds of 125 to 1.

    The transgender performer won Eurovision in 1998 as Israel marked its 50th birthday, with the catchy tune "Diva".

    Her entry this year is the song "Ding Dong", which includes both Hebrew and English lyrics.

    France, which last triumphed at the annual musical battle in 1977, is this year's favourite.

    British boyband Blue, including Jewish singer Anthony Costa, are representing the UK with the song "I Can".

    Last year's hopeful for Israel, Harel Skaat, came 14th, with just 71 points.
