    I believe the two members of Belarus’s Naviband are married, hence the kiss.

    Moldova’s sax guy is a meme, established the last time they represented Moldova, in 2010 (search for “Epic Sax Guy”, who was something of the European Rick-Roll for a few years). They definitely knew he was their Big Deal, and built the act around his “asides”.

    Portugal’s song does a callback to the origins of Eurovision. His song is 100% pure, distilled nostalgia. If you don’t like it, a very large fraction of Eurovision history might not be for you. Personally, I’d rather Bulgaria have won, given the greater skill and emotion of Kristian’s singing, but I have no qualms with the Portuguese victory. Salvador’s a highly-deserving winner.
