Salvador Sobral Ganha Eurovisão 2017

Salvador Sobral Wins Eurovision 2017

May 21, 2017

Discover the beautiful ballad that unexpectedly swept Europe off its feet in the Eurovision 2017 song contest: “Amar Pelos Dois”, by Salvador Sobral. After 53 years of competing, this marks Portugal’s first victory ever! With the help of a special guest, Rui and Joel explore the meaning behind these Portuguese lyrics as well as what set this performance apart from all the rest.

Note: We only used a short clip of the song to avoid waking up the copyright police, so make sure to check out Salvador’s full performance with his sister, (and composer, Luísa Sobral): https://youtu.be/z5VUti3kVIo?t=4m13s
