With his gentle romantic ballad Amar Pelos Dois (Love For Both), Sobral captured 758 points in the contest, 143 more than second-placed Kristian Kostov, from Bulgaria, and gave Portugal its first ever win since it started competing in the worldwide event in 1964.

"This is a victory for music. music isn't fireworks, music is feeling".

"We live in a world of fast food music".

Moldova's Sunstroke Project finished a surprising third, with a bouncy, jazzy song called "Hey Mama" that featured a clever stage routine in which the female backup singers hid their microphones in bridal bouquets.
