The best in history: what was the most successful Eurovision number that collected a record number of points, and who won it
Every year at the Eurovision Song Contest finals, Eurofans and a professional jury from each participating country vote for their favorites. Their points are added up and the artist or group with the most points wins.
The most successful in the history of the contest was the performance of the singer from Portugal, which was estimated at a record-breaking 758 points. OBOZREVATEL decided to remember how it was (to see photos and videos, scroll to the end of the page).
In 2017, the largest song show, as you know, was held in Kyiv, because the year before the victory was won by the singer Jamala. Six years ago, representatives from dozens of countries gathered in the capital of Ukraine to fight for the winner's cup.
The Portuguese singer Salvador Sobral took first place with his lyrical song "Amar pelos dois". The artist not only won for his country, but also went down in history as the participant with the most points - 758.
Interestingly, his number was simple and was not accompanied by active underdancing, special effects, complicated staging and extravagant image. In 2017, the audience and judges were impressed only by the vocals and the song of the contestant, written by his sister.
Just four months after his victory, Salvador was in intensive care, and doctors gave no comforting prognosis. Four months later, the artist performed for the first time after a heart transplant.
