Earlier this month he donated the proceeds of his CD sales to the municipality of Pedrógão Grande, which recently endured tragic wildfires that killed more than 60 people and plunged Portugal into a state of national mourning.

And on Tuesday Salvador Sobral continued to aid the embattled region by headlining the “Juntos Por Todos” (Together for Everyone) relief concert inside Lisbon’s MEO Arena.

The noted jazz star had the honour of closing the show, which featured 25 artists and raised more than 1.15 million euros for the people of Pedrógão Grande.

He performed a beautiful rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You”, showing the fragility and vulnerability that helped him win Eurovision in May.

The touching lyrics honoured those Portugal has lost and suggested their legacy will live on.

As he sang: “I remember that time that you told me, you said, ‘Love is touching souls.’ Surely you touched mine ’cause part of you pours out of me, in these lines from time to time.”

He then turned to “Amar pelos dois”, the track that secured Portugal its first-ever Eurovision win in nearly 50 attempts.

As ever the audience, which included 14,000 live spectators, erupted in applause — to which Salvador gave a rather cheeky response.

“I have the feeling that you will applaud anything I do,” he said. “If I give a fart, I want to see what you do.”

The spur-of-the-moment comment drew plenty of applause from the audience, but also a few whistles of disapproval.

Social media has been particularly divided. Some users see the comment as an extension of Salvador’s quirky and endearing personality, while others have described the remark as “unpleasant and completely unnecessary” during such a solemn event.

NIT.pt joked that “it remains to be seen if Salvador gave the fart as promised” while Twitter user Gonçalo Sousa said, “Music isn’t fireworks. It’s fartworks.”

Twitter user Shadow Moon said “the man that divided Eurovision divided Portugal” with the off-colour comment.

Salvador apologises

On Wednesday the bohemian artist publicly apologised for his comments.

Writing on Facebook he said: “I’ve always spoken twice before thinking.”

“This characteristic of mine has its good part and also the bad part. Yesterday, unfortunately, I acknowledge that I was rather inappropriate.
I hope that this sad speech will not make us forget the step we have taken together, from the musicians to you who have helped to help those who are suffering at the moment, which are the most important in the midst of all this.”

“I’m sorry if I offended anyone, honestly. It wasn’t my intention. It never was.”

Regardless of where you stand on the matter, the comment helped drive Salvador Sobral to second on Twitter Portugal’s trending charts — a place he still held as of this morning.

The top trending item remains Juntos Por Todos, which no doubt benefitted from the presence of Portugal’s artist-of-the-moment.

Other artists performing included Agir, Amor Electro, Ana Moura, Aurea, Camané, Carlos do Carmo, Carminho, DAMA, David Fonseca, Diogo Piçarra, Gisela João, Hélder Moutinho, João Gil, Jorge Palma, Luísa Sobral , Luis Represas, Matias Damásio, Miguel Araújo, Paulo Gonzo, Pedro Abrunhosa, Raquel Tavares, Rita Redshoes, Rui Veloso and Sérgio Godinho.

What do you make of the controversy? Was the remark appropriate? Given that Salvador helped raise more than a million euros for those in need does it matter? Let us know in the comments box below.

@Dante – I guess that is what happens when you live in a family where the sister does the hard work, and the brother is the prince.

Yes, I’ve lived in such a family, the boy can do no wrong, if he can brush his teeth – he is a hero, and the outcome is that he is dumb asf, and he has no clue. S.Sobral will keep making mistakes, the world is his playground, he knows no other reality.

Salvador’s joke was inappropriate, but he didn’t offend the victims and his rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You” was one of the most touching moments of the whole concert. Other singers that participated in the event were much more disrespectful IMO… Carlos do Carmo singing “even if a swallow dies, the spring doesn’t end” or Miguel Araújo singing “even if I have to die here (…) come with me to see the cars on the street, ripping through the curves, burning tyres”! Nobody cared about that… only about Salvador’s “fait divers”. I’m not saying that his choice of… Read more »

The audience were screaming, singing along, shouting excitingly. How inappropriate of them during a relief concert! Even the announcers were smiling sometimes when a new artist came on the stage. How dare they! What would the family of the casualties think about that?! Comedy, humor is an important ingredient for finding relief in the darkest of times. A joke related to fire/casualties/wounded would have been inappropriate. This was just a remark to make the sad evening a bit lighthearted. There was no negative intention in it.

Jokes are all about the intent. He obviously didn’t intended to make a funny remark on behalf of the victims or everyone that is hurt. You can remember the ones who died differently, either with complete sadness and sereneness, or with lightheartedness, joyfulness etc.. Manchester had both, Portugal had both.
There is not much wrong with it, but yeah it may be ‘wiser’ if he didn’t do it, because of people like you who don’t count the intention within the remark.

Now this is what I call to find a compromise 🙂 Good negotiation skills. I would agree if this constant Salvador bashing and whining about his victory would stop… (Would be one of the best winning songs for me, though, at least in this century) 😉
PS: I think is not a question of not being smart, is that he is completely ill-suited to deal with fame and this might indeed destroy his career. The backlash in Portugal was huge. Rumour has it that it was Luísa that made him apologize, saying that what he did was totally unacceptable.

I think he’s just not the right one to be famous. He doesn’t want to accept that, unfortunately, he wasn’t famous prior to Eurovision and now that he’s won Eurovision, doing what he doesn’t consider to be special coming from himself, he is. And he’s that underground, indie artist that can’t help but say everything he thinks about mainstream culture. It wasn’t about joking nor egoism, but a totally true comment that might have been kind of uncalled for in that serious moment.

This is the most valid argument. Salvador never wants to be famous. He thinks of music as a piece of art that can be appreciated and he wants his to be appreciated that’s it. However, music is an industry, fame comes along with great appreciation, and he is certainly unprepared.
I do think by apologising he started to learn to deal with fame abit.

Yes, I agree with you. After each artist presentation, the commentators were always shouting the same: let´s applaud X, let´s applaud Y…after 1000 times that was absurd . Perhaps before his actuation he felt that the public was applauding just for applauding. He has already apologised and recognised that his comment was not appropriate, so everything is ok.
And his interpretation of “a case of you” was just Fabulous!

I am reminded of the Gerald Ratner speech of 1991 when he “joked” that the reason his company’s products were so cheap was because they were “total crap”. The result, he wiped £500 million from the value of Ratners jewellers. And now with his own “joke” Sobral has also belittled the taste of his fans, some of who will be alienated.

Actually the money “he raised” was raised by other 24 artists too ( and many other were not able to participate due to the extend of the concert ). He was the final act, and by the time most of the money was already collected. I´m sure if his joke was not at the end of the concert many people would turn off the Tv after it. Supporting refugees or giving money to any cause, or winning Eurovision, does not entitle anyone to be a jerk.

I actually saw the video again. He made this joke after imitating the trumpet and after people applauding to that. I think what he really meant was “Hey guys, you are too kind to me, you applaud even if I do silly things”. It’s a bit silly humour and of course it was not very appropriate for such a big event (it was transmitted by all the three major broadcasters) but it was not ill-founded.
