Their country has a rather spotty history with its Jews, but Polish TV viewers sure do love an Israeli transsexual. Gender-bending pop star Dana International proved a big hit on Polish variety program Przebojowa Noc ("Night Wire") Saturday evening, getting the studio audience on its feet multiple times with renditions of old and more recent hits, including "Diva," the song that won Israel the top spot at the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest.
The singer, who changed from one cleavage-baring costume to another during the course of the show, danced with a local fan on stage for "Love Boy," the disco track that dominated Israeli pop charts earlier this year. The performer - birth name: Yaron Cohen - thanked her audience in Polish and blew kisses to TV viewers at the end of each song.
After an absence of four years, Dana International released a new album this summer, and is currently sharing the top spot on Israel's singles charts with Seret Hodi ("Indian Movie"), a duet with Mizrahi pop singer Idan Yaniv.
