  1. second year in a row the esc winner wins “best composition”; also in 2014, 2015, 2016 the winner of this category won “best entry”! a sign?

  2. First award for Portugal, and 4 totally different winners so far!

  3. No bubble winner here, Shevek? :P

    • If ‘Amar pelos dois’ did not win this award, something would very wrong with the world. :) But, yes, the winning song is not the bubble’s favourite, even though there are people in it who love it.

  4. I’d be shocked with any other result although i really love Belgium too.

  5. Good :)

  6. First winner that makes sense to me. :)

  7. Well anything else would have been a surprise…

  8. The winners have been relatively spread so far. If I remember 2014 correctly, the Common Linnets won almost all possible categories…

  9. Finally a win that makes perfect sense, however any of these nominations would have been a worthy winner tbh!

    I might have been a little hard on the Bulgarian win before as technically there was no wrong in his singing, but who could blame me, when Salvador freaking killed it vocally. Imo that was what Salvador and Portugal overall excelled at this year, hence my frustration. I do hope that it doesn’t turn into The Netherlands 2014 with Bulgaria this year…

  10. Congratulations Luísa! :D

  11. Expected and deserved! :)

  12. Congratulations to Azerbaijan Belgium and Finland for their well deserved nominations and great compositions.

  13. Salvador was not able to accept Fallon’s invitation due to heavy touring agenda. ITV’s Good Morning Britain and the Royal House from Sweden (I’m so sorry if this is not the correct way to say it) have invited him as well.

    • To be honest I think it’s good that he got invitations from all those international shows whether he accepted or not, as I understand “Good Morning Britian” is kind of tacky stuff at least from my journalist point of view but it’s good to see a European interest, am sure such things haven’t happened in the last few years of ESC, I am still hoping with an interview 1-2-1 in Spanish or Catalan with him, that would be great as a journalist! and thanks again for your previous link via the TVP debate, it was very interesting from both a journalistic and content point of view :-)!

  14. Good result. :)
