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I doubt anything drastic will change however and we'll probably end up with the very outdated Festival da Canção choosing an almost certain DNQ, RTP need to be internally selecting Catarina Pereira with a new "Mea Culpa" please.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.
