"Amar pelos dois" (English: Loving for both of us) is a song performed by Portuguese singer Salvador Sobral. It was written and produced by his sister Luísa Sobral. It premiered on February 19, 2017 when it was performed in Festival da Canção 2017, Portugal's national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, and was released as a digital download on March 10, 2017 by Sons em Trânsito.

"Amar pelos dois" is a jazz waltz. Its lyrics revolve around a lost love and the continued attempts to get her back. The song received praise from music critics, with some reviewers considering it Portugal's all-time best Eurovision entry. It earned the Sobral siblings two Marcel Bezençon Awards. The song topped the charts in Finland, Iceland, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. It peaked inside the top 10 in Denmark, France, Luxembourg, Greece, Hungary, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.

At the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, "Amar pelos dois" gave Portugal its first ever win since their debut in 1964. It amassed 758 points, setting the record for the most points achieved by a song in the history of the contest, and topped both the televoting and the jury voting for the first time since Austria's "Rise Like a Phoenix" in 2014. It is the first winning song entirely performed in a country's native language since Serbia's "Molitva" in 2007 and the first winning song written in triple metre since Ireland's "The Voice" in 1996.
