Re: PORTUGAL 2018

Could have been higher if there wasn't the visit from the Pope and Benfica winning the championship, all in the same day... but this year will be higher for sure :) also those results show that the ratings are way higher when we qualify

YAY 2008 here in Belgrade Arena was the most popular! I have attended it! :)
Vania Fernandes was GREAT live! :)

People were really hopeful we could win that year, way more than with Salvador :p

Re: PORTUGAL 2018

So I finally checked out all the participating composers. The names I am mostly excited for are Bruno Cardoso (Xinobi), Diogo Piçarra, Isaura, Janeiro, Júlio Resende, Mallu Magalhães, and Peter Serrado. I cannot wait to know who the singers are.

Xinobi's song is called "All Over Again", and he descibed it as a song with a "dark, deep, melodic electronic base with a smooth pop outline". The singer is a woman.

Re: PORTUGAL 2018

Just one note, Catarina Miranda's usual stage name is Emmy Curl! Anabela was our singer at Eurovision 1993, with "A Cidade (Até ser dia)" and José Cid was in Eurovision 1980 with "Um grande, grande amor".

First thoughts: I have a feeling we will have a very good national final! There are a lot of artists and composers with big potential! It will probably be the best Festival da Canção of this century (not that hard)

Diogo Piçarra is definitely the initial favourite, but I also think Emmy Curl (Júlio Resende), Beatriz Pessoa (Mallu Magalhães), Cláudia Pascoal (Isaura), JP Simões and Tamin (Capicua) are the ones I'm most excited for!

The juries are also very young and made up of great names, compared to previous years. Luísa Sobral is one of the members xlove

Re: PORTUGAL 2018

I'm pretty satisfied with this line-up! Can't say much more until I hear the songs but so far, so good xup really surprised that Diogo Piçarra is going to sing his own song, must be a good one then xheat

I'm also glad with the juries this year, there's more diversity. Last year the youngest was about 40 years :lol: nothing against fossils but we need a good representation in the panel, so I'm glad RTP heard the complaints from last year ;)

Re: PORTUGAL 2018

I really like the jury this year! smaller and widder. Love to see Carlão, Sara Tavares and Ana Markl. Would switch Tozé Brito and Júlio Isidro because #cantstandthem.

The line-up seems ok. Honestly I have no idea of most singers. Diogo Piçarra is a favourite already and is a contender to win. He is very big in Portugal, huge fan base and is signed by Universal. I love theories and mine is this one:

RTP is hosting the show and wants the best. And what would be better than having a portuguese superstar representing the home country than someone that has a huge fan base here? If Diogo is part of this he will win it. I'm sure. With or without a good song. But I'm pretty sure he will have a great one.

I'm also very curious with Isaura, Capicua and Xinobi. I'm a fan so can't wait to here what they are bringing to the contest.

Re: PORTUGAL 2018

Having such a big name as Diogo Piçarra in Festival da Canção would have been completely unthinkable a year ago

Well i'm sure there is a big chance for them to have a great song, and something again that's special. "Amar Pelos Dois" is my favourite Eurovision song ever though, so it will be hard to even come close to giving me the same feelings that song has. Few songs can touch me in the same way. I still can't believe it won Eurovision and with a record breaking total. I was shocked enough I got my wish of Salvador representing Portugal in the first place. I haven't been able to listen to the song in a while, as it was getting me too emotional each time I listened, and now something watery is rolling down my cheek as I listen to it for the first time in a few months. Curse you!!!

Feel the same way. Still can't believe it won. Probably my favourite winner ever along with "Nocturne".

"Nocturne" is lovely too. My favourite winner was for a little while "1944", but I guess that could only last for one year.
