I thought Azerbaijan was last in my thread creating spree, but I forgot good old Portugal! Good reason however, as like Azerbaijan we've heard nothing apart from that they are returning for 2017 after taking a year out to "recalibrate their sound" as certain Buzzjack posters would put it.

I doubt anything drastic will change however and we'll probably end up with the very outdated Festival da Canção choosing an almost certain DNQ, RTP need to be internally selecting Catarina Pereira with a new "Mea Culpa" please. Portugal haven't qualified since 2010 after a quite amazing run of entries from Vania, Flor-de-lis and Filipa Azevedo although Suzy came very close to knocking out Valentina Monetta in 2014 - although while Quero Ser Tua was a fan favourite (despite me finding it horribly repetitive) no-one could've denied Valentina that final spot and that amazing reaction!

Good luck to Portugal in 2017. Last 6 years were unsuccessful. But I still listening Filipa Sousa «Vida minha» from 2012.

Festival da Canção is back on 19th/26th February and 5th March, but in shock news they have dropped the language rule! ohmy.gif Hopefully this shows an intention to put forward a more modern entry for a change, perhaps they can do an "Israel"?

Final - March 5th

- For this year's Festival da Canção, that matches RTP's 60th anniversary, RTP asked 16 of Portugal's top pop, rock and alternative songwriters and producers to do a song for the event. Márcia and Celina da Piedade are the only ones who chose to perform their songs themselves whereas the others chose a singer.
- The language rule was cut out, with the songwriters having the choice of writing the song in any language. However only three of them decided to do a song in English with the others still choosing Portuguese. However some of them have claimed that they are preparing an English version as well.
- Rui Drummond represented Portugal in ESC 2005 as part of 2B. He won The Voice Portugal 2014.
- Deolinda Kinzimba won The Voice Portugal 2015.
- Fernando Daniel won The Voice Portugal 2016. His blind audition singing Adele's When We Were Young went viral worldwide and even featured in Buzzfeed USA.
- David Gomes and Pedro Gonçalves also took part in The Voice Portugal 2016.
- Kika Cardoso, one of the members of Viva La Diva, won X-Factor Portugal in 2014.

I think I actually fell asleep about half way through! Anyway, these are the 4 qualifiers:

01. Viva La Diva - Nova Glória - 22 points
02. Salvador Sobral - Amar Pelos Dois - 20 points
03. Fernando Daniel - Poema A Dois - 17 points
04. Deolinda Kinzimba - O Que Eu Vi Nos Meus Sonhos - 12 points

Salvador won the jury vote and Viva La Diva the public vote. Let's just hope the second semi final has some better songs!

Probably the worst national selection show I've ever seen, my favourite was probably Lisa Garden just because she was vaguely uptempo but even she would struggle to be more than a 4/10.

Unless there is an improvement in the second semi (rumours say it's actually worse) then Portugal are surely finishing rock bottom of their semi. Really really poor and it's such a shame after they've supposedly made a big effort to modernise and revamp it.

TONIGHT'S NATIONAL FINAL...
PORTUGAL



Festival da Canção


5th March 2017
Begins at 9.05pm in Portugal and in the UK and at 10.05pm Central European Time.
The show is scheduled to last 3 hours 55 minutes.

Watch the selection via the official RTP webcast.


Running order
01. Jorge Benvinda - Gente bestial
02. Pedro Gonçalves - Don't Walk Away
03. Lena d'Água - Nunca me fui embora
04. Salvador Sobral - Amar pelos dois
05. Fernando Daniel - Poema a dois
06. Celina da Piedade - Primavera
07. Deolinda Kinzimba - O que eu vi nos meus sonhos
08. Viva La Diva - Nova glória

Voting format
There will be a single round of voting. The result will be determined using a mix of regional jury voting and televoting although the exact split is yet to be confirmed. It is presumed it will be 50/50.

The favourites to win
The hype seems to be around Salvador Sobral although we can't count out the semi-final winners who were Celina da Piedade and Viva La Diva. In addition, it is worth noting that Pedro Gonçalves has public support after winning the televote in his semi-final but the juries were far from fans. However, the regional juries could shake things up and give him the jury support to match his public support.

I wouldn't go as far. Maybe someone will get sucked into the emotion and his manner is quite quirky so I am not sure about the last place but the fact it's doa is obvious.

*watch this qualifying comfortably in the sea of other female ballads lolz*

This seems to have a very love/hate reaction on forums, I assumed most of the love was somewhat ironic. However, Portugal are now 7th favourites to win Eurovision after shortening from 100/1 outsiders to 10/1 today and will be second favourite by tomorrow if they keep shortening at the speed they are.

Am I missing something?

I've listened twice and it sounds completely dull and unremarkable to me.

Oh shit, 10/1? They are clearly expecting a Tom Dice effect from the performance it seems. The song is blah but the singer saves it, or something

Timely reminder that the current top 10 of the odds only has 3 confirmed entries in it and is based on only six bookmakers [/storminateacup]

There's no song there. Just a guy making unusual hand movements and mumbling for 3 minutes.

Inept even for Portugal.
