    Oh, that doesn't sound good at all, so he's currently having a machine doing the heart-work for him or what do you mean by "artificial"?
    I hope it'll all be good, I know I've been "hard" on the dude for other reasons previously, but of course I still wish him the best regardless as he never harmed anyone, no one should have to go through something like this, in particular at such a young age with so much life left.

    Yes, I think that's what they mean by artificial machine :/

    Re: PORTUGAL 2017 - Salvador Sobral - Amar pelos dois

    It has been a while. It feels good to post here again.

    For me, personally, the craziest thing about all this was seeing my country winning two big pan-European competitions back to back, just like Greece in 2004-2005. Not in a million years I could imagine that I would witness something like that in my lifetime.

    Regarding Eurovision 2017, I am obviously satisfied with the outcome. I really did not see that amount of points coming, though. I knew the chances of "Amar pelos dois", even if it was underestimated by the Eurovision bubble. But the professional juries and people at home have a different mindset, so it makes me extremely happy and proud to see that something presented in my language was a crowd pleaser.

    I did research, and from a statistical point of view it is monumental what the entry achieved. So, here it is. Enjoy.

    New voting system

    Highest score ever: 758 points, surpassing the 690 points of "Fairytale" (Norway 2009)

    Highest average score ever: 18.5 points (77%), overcoming the 16.8 points (70.1%) of "Fairytale" (Norway 2009)

    Most jury points ever: 382 points, beating "Heroes" (Sweden 2015) which scored 353 points

    Most televote points for a non-English language entry ever: 376 points, overcoming "Grande amore" (Italy 2015) which collected 366 points

    Thirty (30) sets of 12 points – televoting: twelve (12); jury voting: eighteen (18)

    Minimum of five televote points from every participating nation, matching "Grande amore" (Italy 2015)

    Previous voting system

    All countries: highest score ever of 417 points, surpassing the 387 points of "Fairytale" (Norway 2009)

    Only grand final countries (pre-2004): highest score ever of 252 points, surpassing the 227 points of "Love Shine a Light" (United Kingdom 1997)

    Highest average score ever: 10.2 points (84.8%), beating the 9.6 points (80.4%) of "Save Your Kisses for Me" (United Kingdom 1976)

    Most combined 12 points ever (televote + jury vote) – 20 (twenty), overcoming "Euphoria" (Sweden 2012) which received full marks 18 (eighteen) times

    Breakdown of points awarded to Portugal in the grand final – combined vote (televote + jury vote):

    Miscellaneous

    Only entry not ranked last by any jury member, alongside Australia

    First time since 2012 that the winning song also topped the ESC Radio Awards poll

    First winning song entirely in native language since "Molitva" (Serbia 2007) – a full decade

    Most legitimate top 2 (Portugal + Bulgaria): first time ever that both the televoters and the juries agreed on the winner and the runner-up

    "Amar pelos dois" scored more points under the previous voting system (417 points) than "Running Scared" (Azerbaijan 2011) did under the new voting system (405 points)

    About @Miguel's statistics - that really is insane! It's crazy how the entry would have scored 417 points under the old voting system, no one even came close to that. I never thought that any entry could ever break the 400 points.
    It's amazing the magnitude of this win, an almost complete record breaker on all assets. And yet so many people still complained that the win was unfair afterwards on the internet
    Really ironic how the country that waited the longest to win finally won on this amazing way.

    I was looking back through some old threads, and wow, this post and the incident leading up to it are truly underrated moments of ESCUnited lore. I can't stop laughing.

    Salvador Sobral has undergone a successful heart transplant yesterday! He is now on intensive care. His family hasn't commented yet but a press release is expected today.
