PORTUGAL – On May 12, hours before the Grand Final of the 2018 Euovisión Song Festival began, the representatives of Spain, Alfred and Amaia, made one of their biggest dreams come true: to meet Salvador Sobral. Then, both commented that the meeting served them “very much” and that it was “super cool”.
Now, some time later, and due to his Spanish tour “Amar Pelos Dois” in Spain, he has given an interview before performing at the San Sebastian Jazz Festival, as published by The Huffington Post. There he was asked for the two contestants of ‘OT 2017’ and, as usual, Sobral did not hesitate to say what he thought.
“I do not know much about Alfred, but the girl seems like an interesting musician, she plays the piano and is supermusical, she’s not one of those ‘cantontas’, as they say, she’s a real musician, my sister showed it to me when she was a jury in ‘Operación Triunfo’ and the truth is that she played and sang very well”, says the young Portuguese.
In addition, he was asked by his passage through the European music event, as well as his victory, Sobral admits that many jazz musicians in Portugal came to him to say: “You won for us, you went for us!”. About this, he considers that it was really what he got from his time in Kiev: “I prefer a thousand times to please a jazz musician than I get to know Eurovision people”.
