    On their Facebook page, the Portuguese broadcaster has said that the EBU has approved the “YouTuber” lyric. Could it be that they aren’t so bothered because it’s not “YouTube” exactly? Or has Portugal done an Australia 2016 and are claiming it’s actually “you tuber”, an ode to a particularly compelling root vegetable?

    It may be there’s a little more leniency at JESC, alternatively Valentina’s moment was many years ago and you could argue that FB and YT are now ‘in common usage’ with no competitors? No doubt we’ll ask when we get on the ground i November!
