The Israeli band Ping Pong placed 22nd out of 24 competitors at the Eurovision song contest in Stockholm on Saturday night, raising uncertainty over whether Israel will qualify to compete next year. Before the competition, the band created controversy when it waved Syrian flags and made suggestive use of a cucumber during a rehearsal. Denmark won the competition with “Fly on the Wings of Love” by the Olsen Brothers, a group that began its career in the 1960s.
