The Portuguese played a role, that’s what I felt. I saw him on many occasions and I didn’t believe he had [health] problems.They used marketing to win, as happens in our talent shows as well. His backstory worked and the public ate it up. But from my point of view, Salvador doesn’t have heart problems, but head issues. Everybody thought that Italy would win, but there was a big fuss in Kyiv about [Salvador Sobral] because he was mysterious, he didn’t give interviews, he didn’t take photos and he wouldn’t show up for rehearsals.
Alex Florea, rap artist that represented Romania in Eurovision (Yodel it), talking about Salvador Sobral, who tried his best to hide his heart problems after they were leaked by the press and only admitted to them in an interview aired AFTER he won Eurovision.
Salvador has been on portuguese TV since he was ten and participated in several talent competitions and NO ONE had any idea he was sick.
Just to clear things up, Salvador did give interviews when he was in Kiev and the only reason he didn’t show up to rehearsals was because his team of doctors advised him not to. No talent competition is worth your life.
So yeah, I will block anyone that defends this horrible statement or person. He is a disgusting human being.
