Left home when I was only sweet sixteen
Chasing blind love and a bunch of broken dreams
Don’t know how I thought I’d be a queen
I could do anything
But somehow I end up here I don’t know why
I still believe that

Love is on my side
Love is on my side
Love is on my side
Maybe not tonight

I can feel it when it rains
I can feel it still runnin’ in my veins
Ran so fast I couldn’t even grow
Forgot where I belong
Sold my body on a dirty cold floor
Yet I believe that
I believe that

Love is on my side
Love is on my side
Love is on my side
on my side
Maybe not tonight

Love is…
Love is…
Love is…

Love is on my side
Maybe not tonight​

Gonçalo Madail said today that it is too early to make a decision about 2021, as they still need to hear the guidelines and suggestions from the Reference Group.
However, I think the most likely thing is that they'll hold a new FdC edition in 2021. They would probably invite Elisa, or automatically qualify her to the final, though

I actually see that FdC happening and inviting her to final...

Hopefully that would be the case. it's the least they could do, really! Especially considering Elisa has already said she would love to go in 2021 again
Yes I think that would be a case. FdC has been gathering a lot of attention both ffom artists and the public. So I think that would be a good solution. But with a direct access to the final. Not like Estonia, where they are making him go through the semi again.

I agree. I feel that's the only right thing to do for countries with NF - to invite the 2020 winners and have them compete in the finals if they decide to go with the NF routes in 2021.

I doubt Marta Carvalho (the composer) will be back. She posted on Instagram something like: " I quit this experience with a lot of gratitude..."

So I think she won't be back.

The composer may not be back but Elisa could still continue without her. Elisa just need to find another team to write a song for her. Unless Elisa is sticking to the composer.

No idea how RTP is going to deal with the situation now and I think they won't have any info in the next month's. Portugal is in state of emergency due to the Coronavirus and everything is running in minimum services with a lot of people working from home including tv jornalists :s

Lack of budget.
We are unsure how the coronavirus will affect the portuguese economy in the long term and the portuguese broadcaster if funded solely by the government, so a withdraw will not be a surprise.
