whan an amazing NF! Probably my favorite so far - along with UMK and Eesti Laul. There is like 8 songs that I love and would probably be in my top 10 (at least) in Eurovision. I just hope Europe and the juries are ready to accept them and not underrate them.

My top 4:

The Black Mamba "Love is on My Side"
Da Chick "I Got Music"
Pedro Gonçalves "Não Vou Ficar"
Ariana "Mundo Melhor"


Another solid edition of FdC. We're still far away from something like Dianna - "Como Antes" taking part, but it's ok.

In the last two editions i liked more FdC songs than in the entire past decade. :lol:
Keep it up. Keep the variety. xup

My favourites are

#1 Karetus & Romeu Bairos 10/10
It reminds me of Stereossauro! What a massive sound. It's modern yet traditional + it got some melancholic vibe.
I can see myself voting for Portugal this year if they send this to Eurovision

#2 EU.Clides 9/10
Laid-back and chill tune, modern arrangement. Sounds very contemporary.

#3 Pedro Goncalves 7/10
Amazing pre-chorus, love the built-up. Cute song.

#4 NEEV 7/10
I would love to get such an entry from a basic Eurovision country such as Norway, Denmark or Germany but please... Portugal has a way more distinctive sound. I love Portugal being bold in Eurovision and this song is just another called-in typical Eurovision ballad. The arrangement in the last minute is amazing, though. I really do like this song but no, I don't want to see this in Eurovision for Portugal.

#5 mema. 7/10
A lovely produced but non-competitive track with a lot of interesting elements!

NEEV is the clear clear stand out here in my opinion. I just hope the juries won't automatically murder him for being in English.
Karetus is a bit too repetitive, but it's quite a bop and really stands out in this line-up too. Nadine, Pedro Gonçalves, mema, The Black Mamba and Carolina Deslandes are good too.

However, I can already see the drama in march. The juries will bury NEEV and The Black Mamba for the English and Karetus for being a bit more pop-ish and Carolina will win by default. And it will be a huge shame for an inferior ballad like Carolina's to win against NEEV which does that genre much much better.

I LOVE Carolina's song, but I do worry about how European audience will react to it. Hope it's more in the lines of AMPD than of 'O Jardim'

I got excited beforehand with all the comments here.. I don't think I heard the same songs. There a couple that stand out, but nothing special after a first listen. I`ll try to give it a few more tries.
