In Tumblr-ish we don’t say “It’s the second week of May” we say “EUROVISION SONG CONTEST !!!11!1!!” which literally translates to “Please no more ballads in English but more glitter, pianos on fire, dancing babushkas and Verka Serduchka !”.
“If I’m here and I have Europe’s exposure, the least I can do is leave a humanitarian message. People come to Europe in plastic boats and are being asked to show their birth certificates in order to enter a country. These people are not immigrants, they’re refugees running from death. Make no mistake. There is so much bureaucratic stuff happening in the refugee camps in Greece, Turkey, and Italy and we should help create legal and safe pathways from these countries to their destiny countries.”
Salvador Sobral, the Portuguese contestant of 2017 Eurovision Song Contest shows support for the refugees at the press conference following this year’s first semifinal.
