Another country shaking up the betting odds is Portugal, which selected crooner Salvador Sobral.

The “Amar Pelos Dois” singer is bringing another quirky, out-of-the-box performance. His doesn’t rely on gimmicks. Instead he creates a dreamy atmosphere with a song that could have come from a Billie Holiday jazz album.

It’s quiet yet stirring and he shows off his vocal prowess without actually being showy. It’s a rare gift.

And the bookies have responded. Portugal — perennially last in the betting odds — finds itself in the strange position of being fifth favourite. The video of the Salvador Sobral in the Grand Final of Festival da Canção 2017, in the last days reached, 1 million views. The semifinal performance is less than 50,000 views of the same brand. Is this the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, will Portugal achieve is first victory?
