netta barzilai toy eurovision 2018 first rehearsal
Netta smashing it in Lisbon earlier this year

He won the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 and told Europe “music is not fireworks”. But a year on Salvador Sobral thinks he has failed to change the contest. 

“Last year people would say, ‘Now that you’ve won things will change!'” says Sobral in a rare interview with Portuguese paper Publico“I do not think so. Maybe in the future.”

In the interview, he took aim at Israel’s entry “Toy”:

“YouTube thought I would like the Israeli song. I opened it and a horrible song came out of it. Luckily this year I do not have to hear anything.”

The interview also discusses Salvador’s difficulty with overnight fame.

“I hope to stop being regarded as the winner of the festival and to return to just being Salvador Sobral of music. There aren’t many stories in Portugal history of such instant fame. I was not ready. When I arrived in Portugal, after the victory, it was hard. I was tired of crying. I said to myself, “What did I do?” I could not go outside.

“But then the time passed and people came to respect me. They realise that I don’t like to take pictures for example. Instead they say they like my work very much and I thank them. It’s simple.”

On balance, Salvador does view victory as a positive thing:

“Eurovision has brought me many good things.I went to jazz festivals where I would never dream of playing. I played in Spain in beautiful theaters. Anyway, things I did not imagine and that I owe to Eurovision. So there is a love-hate relationship, but in the balance of what this experience has brought me, I see more positive than negative things.”

Asked about Portugal’s chances this year, Sobral said “political issues” make it difficult. On the other hand, he doesn’t believe Brexit will be a “decisive” factor in the UK’s result.

He is absolutely right. He has a right to defend what he thinks is good music. His victory song is so beautiful, it gave me chills. Israel only left me disgusted, Extremist feminism has taken over Eurovision and according to the comments his vitory should be taken away, only because he dislikes the new winning song… That says enough about the triggered ultra-feminist fans.

I wouldn’t remember the song even if it slaps me in face. This is how “good” it was. It didn’t become famous, nobody ever heard it ever again or played it. Maybe in Portugal only. Salvador is egotistical and egocentric person, who has no respect for his colleagues. It was not only Israel that has been offended, but also all other participants from last year’s contest. Vanity and arrogance are definitely not respected character attributes. I admire Neta’s respond, sending love to him and the other participants . By the way, he was the joke, the highlight of the evening.… Read more »

Salvador Sobral, I am deeply disappointed by your arrogant statements. Not only about Israel, but also about the other participants. Last year I voted for you, being influenced by your illness. Many people were opposing me, saying that you bought your victory by touching the hearts of the audience in a pathetic way. I regret voting for you, You are not a winner, you are a loser. Your victory should be revoked and made null .

Obviously he doesn’t know the meaning of FairPlay. If he can spit on his colleagues, why wouldn’t I change my opinion about him and his song which I honestly don’t remember? A very sly marketing trick was used last year by presenting his health condition in order to gain sympathy from the broad audience, and it worked. That doesn’t mean we can ‘t change our opinion and say it in public what we think of him. He is fake. Just a spoiled brat, rude and arrogant. Unacceptable.

He is right in a way. There have always been gimmicky acts in Eurovision, but I believe Israel’s winning was a slap in the face to all those good writers, composers and interpreters who brought in high-quality amazing songs. Netta said “thank you for voting different!!” but is she the first? Hardly. We don’t have to go too far to remember Conchita Wurst, but apart from the act, she has an incredible voice and the song was superb. Next year (I am not sure if Israel is safe enough to host this competition) EVERYBODY will bring in cows, pigs, chickens,… Read more »

Yes, music is an art, but there are many and varied ways to express yourself. What makes Eurovision great is that it celebrates and embraces many different types of music. The ‘chicken’ noises were using the voice as an instrument for sound, rhythm and punctuation which is a clever musical device. I loved the songs of both winners.
We should not mistake judgement and individual taste for absolute truth.

Eu também prefiro o estilo de música que o Salvador nos trouxe, mas a arte é subjectiva. Essa atitude arrogante de que o gosto de alguns não presta é francamente ridícula…. Promovam aquilo que gostam mas não o façam à custa dos gostos dos outros.

Lol, “O Jardim” was one of the most boring performances in the show. 3 Minutes on stage, half of it delivered with a monotone voice and then it turns to a similarly monotone duett. I m glad that this song and all the other similar average songs didnt win. Same goes for the usual “bombastic” appearance which the acts from the eastern bloc love to bring on. Claiming “THIS IS REAL MUSIC” is as stupid as it gets.
Just saying ” i like rather these songs than x” would have been fine though.

You may find it boring. That’s ok, it’s a “boring” but beautiful song. On the other hand, this year winner song has a chicken yelling. Surely not “boring” but certainly defines the low quality of the composers and also the critics that say this is a good song. If this are your standards then all is lost … Salvador was right, there is, in fact, real music … and it’s not chickens yelling. Horrible, indeed.

My dear Befan. Why do you target Cyprus particularly? Because it is the biggest threat to your “precious” Toy? Most songs (including Israel) are sung in English, so why pick on Cyprus? Many of the songs this year are written by non nationals, 9 of them being Swedish (Austria, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, Malta, Moldova, Poland). The EBU rules allow for foreign nationals to represent any country. The rules also allow the entries to be sung in ANY chosen language.

He himself acknowledges that he does not ponder the reach of his words, that he “speaks twice before thinking.” And his personality has been known for a year !!! It was an interview with an internal newspaper (in portuguese, and a newspaper without any connections with Eurovision, or accredited journalist in the Eurovision). In the end,… Read more »

He’s just jealous because he doesn’t have a Pikachu in his home. Love Netta, hope she’s gonna win or at least be like top 3. I love the picture she shared tho, I saw a lot of comments of “Fans” that insult her just because they want “Fuego” to win and this picture she shared is what Eurovision means. Yes, there is a contest here and yes, there is only 1 winner but it doesn’t mean that everyone else is a loser.

I don’t think anyone at this point is angry at Salvador for disliking “Toy”, heck, many people disliked “Toy” and they’re in all their right of doing so. The thing that angers people (or at least me) it’s all about the pseudo-hipster attitude that he has surrounding what he calls “real music”. Many of his comments come across as “these fools hasn’t learned about real music yet, they still listen to horrible meaningless songs”, which I totally disagree. Just because you won Eurovision or you’re big in the music industry doesn’t mean you have the right to choose what’s real… Read more »

>Many of his comments come across as “these fools hasn’t learned about real music yet, they still listen to horrible meaningless songs”, … Well, that’s just your view of him. He’s not like that. He has stated many times that he doesn’t know how to express his thoughts in public. That’s why his sister is always there to rescue him. Many people have an idea of him and see it as the truth, but we dont know him. He loves bruno mars and other artists who have meaningless songs. I wish people wouldnt take what he says so personally and… Read more »

nice excuse…if he does not know how to express himself the STFU! He is a douchebag and no amount of excuses you try to come up with can deny that. The FACTS are clearly there for anyone to see.

Já se percebeu que o objectivo é descredibilizar o Salvador, bem como os portugueses em geral para criar polémica e talvez angariar votos para a canção Isrealita que desceu nas sondagens. Todos sabem que o Salvador não é politacamente correcto (e ainda bem) logo é um alvo fácil. Penso que a entrevista foi incorrectamente traduzida de forma a dar a entender que ele esperava com a sua vitória revolucionar o eurofestival, o que não é verdade. Ele está mesmo se borrifando para isso. Ele emitiu a sua opinião apenas em relação à canção, não desvalorizou a menina que canta nem… Read more »

Pode até ser, mas ele vai fazer parte do evento e tem responsabilidades. Vai estar em palco com o Caetano Veloso ( que se calhar também vai levar com assobios sem culpa nenhuma) e vai entregar o troféu ao seu sucessor. Era desnecessário o embaraço no/ao seu próprio país! Depois do evento, dizia o que quisesse.

Exatamente! Foi exatamente o que eu disse em baixo. Ele arrisca-se que a sua atuação e a do Caetano Veloso seja vaiada, o que seria uma vergonha. Devo dizer que estou muito agastado com esta situação com tudo o que ele provocou. Espero que está semi corra bem e que o pessoal esqueça um pouco isto, porque está mesmo a estragar a experiência…

Pois devia era estar agastado com o baixo nível do Sr. Angus Quinn e, por arrasto, do seu blogue, e pela (des)consideração demonstrada por Portugal e portugueses. Admira-me sim que vocês (2 portugueses aparentemente?) se ofendam com uma opinião pessoal de um músico, totalmente retirada de contexto, e não se ofendam com uma tentativa baixa e ridícula de criar polémica para aumentar o nº de cliques. Já não andava por aqui há 1 ano, justamente pela falta de elegância de alguns destes bloggers que perceberam que o Salvador “dá canal”. Pernas para que vos quero… vou já zarpar daqui mais… Read more »
