Bolo

I'm being a little naughty today and breaking one of my golden rules. As you may have noticed, I never post a birthday for someone from this year's contest. Except for today.

This song has us at OnEurope in tears. It's such a great song, and everyone was so happy when it won in Kyiv. It is, of course, Salvador Vilar Braamcamp Sobral with his most sublime of ballads. It confirms to me that anyone can win this contest, and the winning song doesn't even have to be in English. A good song will out, whatever it is. So here is one of the few highlights of my year. Just ignore the flag-waving wannabes trying to get in on the act.

Salvador is 28 today.

Feliz aniversario, salvador!
