Portugal: Festival Da Canção continues with Second Semi-Final tonight

Portugal is gearing up to choose their next Eurovision representative after their one-year break in Stockholm. Tonight, the remaining eight songs in competition for the title to represent the country at year’s Eurovision Song Contest will fight to get one of the four available remaining spots in the grand final which will take place next Sunday live from Coliseo Dos Recreios in Lisbon.

The acts competing tonight are:

  • David Gomes – “My paradise”
  • Lena d’Água – “Nunca me fui emborada”
  • Beatriz Felicio – “Ao teo olhar”
  • Pedro Gonçalvez – “Don’t walk away”
  • Helena Kendall – “Andamos no céu”
  • Celina da Piedade – “Primavera”
  • Jorge Benvinda – “Gente bestial”
  • Inês Sousa – “Se o tempo nao falasse”

The four qualifiers will be decided by equally combining the votes from the Portuguese audience and the music professionals expert panel in the studio. They will join the first four acts chosen after last week’s show, who are:

  • Fernando Daniel,
  • Deolinda Kinzimba,
  • Salvador Sobral
  • Viva la Diva

You can tune into the show live at 22:05 (CET) either on RTP’s official streaming or on our multi-window platform.

About Adrián Valiente (Spain)

I love the Eurovision Song Contest not only because of its amazing production but it also gives me the chance to discover new music every year. I've been watching it since 2002, since then I became a huge follower, mostly because of the interest TVE put on it with Rosa from Spain. I've attended the contest several times in the last few years. I also attended the Junior Eurovision in Malta and Bulgaria where we lived an amazing experience thanks to all delegations and PBS/BNT organising team.
