PORTUGAL – Speaking to NDR website, Salvador Sobral revealed some of his 2017 Eurovision emotions. When he arrived in Kyiv he was sick as we all know and he was in shock seeing how huge the event.
He never considered himself winner only confident about it. He didn’t expect to be admired by people although in the rehearsals he want to quit. His sister kept him going. He knew he was a favourite to win but wondered why people are betting on him.
We all remember his comments regarding Netta, the fast food songs and the term “prostitution used in a Swedish TV interview.
He clarified that calling the contest as prostitution was sarcastic. Regarding Netta he said that she was different but her song is not her style.
While clarifying the jokes in the past this time insults Israel taking stand for the Palestinians.
He concluded saying that he wouldn’t participate this year in Eurovision as he would be totally pro Palestinian wearing a T-Shirt with the quote “Free Palestine”.
