    I'm so happy that Portugal won after 50 years with an unique and unforgettable song, but his speech about "fast food music" and real art was really pretentious. At the end he would't even dream of getting this much success if he didn't participate in Eurovision.

    this has been, exhaustively, discussed in this thread and in almost every other thread in this forum and in a couple of other ones. it gets boring.

    Yeah, and where does Salvador shade the Eurovision Song Contest itself? "We live in a world of disposable music, fast food music". He speaks about music as a whole. He wouldn't achieve this success without Eurovision, yes, and that's because commercial radio wouldn't consider giving genuine jazz artists a platform in a gazillion years, and now an understated Portuguese jazz song is charting top 10 in countries across Europe, all because it was finally given a big platform. I imagine he's very grateful to Eurovision. I think he's speaking out against the machine that is the music industry.

    We had a discussion about this in the other thread, and I guess it depends on what you read into it, but to many it was pretty much a shade against Eurovision itself aswell because he made it sound like FINALLY real music got some success, and the comment about fireworks etc. is a clear gibe at Eurovision, if you think else-wise I think you are slightly fooling yourself.

    But as I said before in the other topic, Salvador hadn't even watched Eurovision one time in his life before competing at it. He had no idea what the music was like. He knows what the business is like though.

    I think if you take his comments as a dig at Eurovision then you're probably fooling yourself actually, as he has no former knowledge of the contest, or preconceptions. He knows what it's like to live as a jazz musician though, and he knows what music we're fed daily in our lives. People can feel offended at the fact he attacked the way in which music is consumed today, and his dig at music being more than just fireworks, but I think those thinking he's being disrespectful to Eurovision are just looking for more to be offended over. He hasn't said "This is a truly atrocious contest, with awful songs. I'm the best and you all suck". He spoke out against the nature in which music is now consumed (we listen, we throw away) and that he thinks music is about the feels, and wants that back again.
