Salvador Sobral - Amar pelos dois

Earlier today Portuguese tabloid Flash suggested that Salvador Sobral was in need of a heart transplant — and that his alleged health issues would sideline him from Eurovision. The rather ugly rumour then circulated within the Eurovision fandom and some fan web sites.

Now Ana Paulo, Salvador’s manager, has confirmed with Jornal de Notícias that the claims about Salvador’s cardiac problems are utterly false.

“I have nothing more to say about that,” she said, explaining that he is doing well and getting over an earlier procedure. “He is recovering well from hernia surgery. Eurovision is not at risk and neither is Salvador’s career. Almost every single concert is sold out.”

Speculation about Salvador’s health has been a hot topic with the Portuguese media ever since Festival da Canção.

The real news about his health was made public after the first semi final of the Portuguese national selection, when he revealed that he had gone to the emergency room regarding two hernias and would need surgery.

RTP promptly announced that the timings of the surgery would allow Salvador to compete in the Grand Final of their national selection and so he did.

However, that didn’t stop gossip magazines and newspapers from creating uncertainty regarding Salvador’s supposed cardiac problems and Portugal’s participation in Kyiv — generating buzz within the Eurovision community.

We are thrilled that the reports — which we did not publish owing to the lack of a credible source — have been proven false.

The wiwibloggs team will be at next week’s official song presentation — an event organized by OGAE Portugal. We’ll get a chance to talk to Salvador — who remains a firm favourite to win Eurovision 2017 — so be sure to send YOUR questions.

What do you think of the Portuguese entry? Are you looking forward to seeing Salvador perform in Kyiv? Tell us below or using our brand new app!

My last piece for this silly incident. Someone’s playing the victim & doing an insincere apology, like with quotation marks. Lovely. Honey, if you know how to dish it out, be ready as well to take it in

@MoonLight and for your information bish, your friend De Moon started replying to my damn comments because I hated your crazy ass song. So, I won’t stop until he stops replying to me. He wanted war, i’ll give him war. If you guys weren’t so damned sensitive about your song, then we won’t be having this conversation

@’MoonLight’ you’re a hypocrite ho, when you just said in your comments that: “They have the right to express their opinions. Like criticizing (even harshly) any WiWiBlogger. (for any reason/sceptic of theirs, that is ok in my book)”. So now that you’re getting it, you’re feeling the heat? You’re a two-faced ho, a fraud & you contradict what you say bish

Lady Gagarina, let me tell you about DeMoon. He is racist, but he speaks his racism in romanian language, but a form that is 100-200 years old, something more archaic, so google translator can’t tranlate it, but romanians can understand it (not wiwibloggs, this is his purpose).

Off-topic: see, it’s so easy to bring out these pathetic, rabid admirers of that godawful yodelling song. What you need to do is: yodelling+horrid+Romanian song = floods of pressed & butthurt yet incoherent comments. It’s all there on display, hahahaha

Sorry for being off topic, but I feel that there something to clarify.
I’m romanian that wanted MIHAI to win, if Yodel It won is fine.
DeMoon is romanian that wanted Yodel It and became very aggressive against anyone that doesn’t agree with him. The way he is promoting his favorite song is not wise at all. Look at Finland, a country that might win, we never hear about aggressive promotion.
If the moderators want to moderate and to find the point zero of this mess, its DeMoon. Just a clue.

Salvador’s song is not ”50’s” for me – it is just eternal, without time limitation and therefore gorgeous..<3

Thank you everyone. 🙂 Just to clarify: I am not a moderator of this site. I am only a songwriter and a fan. (I have met some Wiwibloggs “staff” at events, but at present I don’t work for them. They have all been very nice people to me. I wish them all the best.) I think that Salvador’s song will be noticed at the contest for being so 1950s – whether or not people will vote for that style is an open question. I don’t know if that style will be loved or loathed. The entry makes the contest more… Read more »

@Maclaren @Purple Mask @Everyone The law stipulates that if you moderate comments you have to MODERATE them all. Which would therefore cause many of your comments to be removed. Also a “Internet Hate Crime” is something that fits one of 3 categories, Homophobia/Transphobia etc, hate towards a particular race/colour and hate towards those with disabilities-none of which has been expressed here. You all especiall William, and I’d argue the whole Wiwibloggs team need to: a) Start producing original and useful news b) Stop encouraging people to cry wolf by responding to their comments c) Actually respond to questions d) Stop… Read more »

I agree with Purple Mask. While we appreciate freedom of speech, some healthy moderation is required. People posting on this site might not be aware about UK laws on ‘online hate crimes’ which should be reported to authorities if originate on a UK based resource and/or hosted on a UK portal, which is the case with Wiwibloggs. This Eurovision is likely to attract heated hate comments and Wiwi should be prepared to ruthlessly moderate to be compliant with the law and ethic principles

Anyway, at the post at hand, I wish Salvador & Yulia well, regardless of what medical procedures they take. It would really be a good example to show overcoming adversity. This song is for these two: https://youtu.be/0IA3ZvCkRkQ

There is a particular site which delights in spreading ugly rumours and often apparently making them up as they appear nowhere else. It’s a sad product of our digital social media age. So too are the kind of nasty personalised comments posted by a minority of users here. As a language teacher, I am aware that much can be lost in translation, but it is possible to express an opinion without resorting to insults. So to that minority, I say GROW UP. I will now sit back and await a barrage of comments launched against me. Before that, I should… Read more »
