"My dream is to travel all over the world and play everywhere."
The return of Salvador Sobral on the public channel last night, interviewed in prime time, was one of the most watched moments of the day.
After winning the Eurovision Song Contest and after the transplant to which he was subjected, we were able to see a calm artist, friendly as always and with the same will to live.
"I think it was the most odd year anyone could imagine," said Salvador Sobral during the interview. "I won the biggest European pop contest and the whole country got to know me. A few months later I went into a hospital room for four months and had a heart transplant. "
If he felt afraid? "It would be an ice stone if you did not." More than a person, the surgery influenced him physically: "My voice is a bit fragile right now, but I think it's going to go back to what it was."
About the future, the artist returns to the stages on the islands (Azores) and in June he will make a tour in Spain. Salvador announced that he is already preparing a new album and that he invited writers that he admire such as Miguel Esteves Cardoso or Gonçalo M. Tavares and some musicians like Mário Laginha and Samuel Úria. To this last one he said, "Samuel, if you're listening to me, please make up that shit," in his usual style. It was also announced that Salvador will be on the stage of ESC 2018 next May in Lisbon.

The six songs where a mix of different styles. But one of the weak editions of the last years.
After the vote of an international jury and the televoting the Band Zibbz won the ticket to Lisbon and will performe the song "Stones".
Last year Switzerland missed the ticket to the grand final, like in Stockholm the year before.
Maybe this year Stones will help Switzerland to return to the grand final and repeat a better result on the score board.
