Sobral , 27, performed the song in Portuguese, dressed in an oversized dinner jacket, and often clasped his hands in front of his chest as he sang. It was a far cry from the other performances, which included shirtless men splashing in a pool; a performer wearing a horse head sitting atop a ladder; another straddling a full-sized cannon; and several instances of fireworks. The announcement process, which was broadcast on television stations around the world on Saturday night, took roughly an hour.

Russia had originally planned to participate, but announced their withdrawal on 13 April , after their representative, Julia Samoylova , was banned from entering Ukraine by virtue of having travelled directly from Russia to Crimea in , a region that was annexed by Russia in , to give a performance, which is illegal under Ukrainian law. This was Portugal's first win — and first top five placing — in 53 years of participation, the longest winless run by a country in Eurovision history.
