Salvador at Eurovision

Salvador Sobral was chosen to represent Portugal at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, after winning the Portuguese national selection show, Festival da Canção in March with his entry Amar pelos dois (Loving for both of us), composed by his sister Luísa Sobral.

Eventually, Portugal won the 62nd Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, scoring a record amount of 758 points. Here’s the winning performance of Salvador and Luísa at the end of the Grand Final:
