Song: Amar Pelos Dois

Word of the day:
avô - grandfather
Who this song is targeted towards


This years Portuguese entry sounds a little like something from the first decade and a half of Eurovision. The old style sound is probably why it is popular with older Eurovision fans. With most music in Eurovision aimed at younger fans, songs aimed at the grey (haired) vote have a lot of potential to win, which would be a first for Portugal.

Salvador competed in Idolos 3 in 2009/2010 and finished 7th after performing "Jura", which may have been a cruel elimination. He was on Idolos as a clean cut young man. Since then he has adopted a hipster look and the beard and long hair has aged him about 15 years in only 7.

This years song was written by Salvador's sister, Luísa, who is also an Idolos graduate who finished 3rd in Idolos 1. It still sounds weird that Salvador is singing a love song his sister wrote. Incest is the best, put your sister to the test...

And from music that sounds like grandfather music to music that is grandfather music, Portugal's first entry from 1964
