The Winner Of The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 Is Portugal’s Salvador Sobral

The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 has crowned Salvador Sobral the winner. He represented Portugal with a song written by his sister Luísa Sobral, titled “Amar pelos dois”. It is the first time Portugal has ever won the contest, after entering 49 times.

This year has been extremely competitive, but once again, the Eurovision Song Contest has proven that the early favourites do not always win. The OGAE poll also was no indication of who would win the contest. The show will be held in Portugal next year since they won, but the chosen city won’t be revealed until much later on in the year.

At the end of the show, Salvador Sobral took to the stage again to sing the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 winning song “Amar pelos dois”; only this time, alongside his sister Luísa Sobral, the writer of the song.
