I’ve tried to write
A million other songs but
Somehow I can’t move on, oh you’re gone

Takes time, alright
And I know it’s no one’s fault but
Somehow I can’t move on, oh you’re gone

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Tem tanto que trago comigo
Foi sempre o meu porto de abrigo
E agora nada faz sentido
Perdi o meu melhor amigo

E se não for demais
Peço por sinais
Resta uma só palavra

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Saudade
Saudade
Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

Nothing more that I can say
Says it in a better way

I’ve tried, alright
But it’s killing me inside
Thought you’d be by my side always

This year's entry was a real surprise. Even if it doesn't do well, they should keep on trying different things and not fall back into the same thing they used to send. Portugal could become a real "joker" country that sends completely different things every year, like Montenegro, Georgia and Hungary, i think that's their potential strength.

Hopefully RTP gets excited with the result we had this year and keeps with the good work they have been doing these last years

yes I'm super happy that they got what they deserved! viewership was also pretty high!

That's good to know! i had no idea about the viewership. People are talking way more about it on social media (good and bad...but any type of publicity is good!) so there is hope

The audience was very good.
RTP just need to maintain the good work about FdC.

This year viewership was on average 1 198k viewers, for context in 2018 it was 1 548k and in 2019 553k.
Eurovision Song Contest 2021 -Grand Final Live Stream is trending on youtube at #11, Maneskin performing at the grand final is trending at #4 and The Black Mamba's semifinal performance is trending #1.
Also last night the portuguese twitter top hashtags were all about eurovision.

These are really great numbers.

and in a year we took a polarizing song (as usual), that is awesome news!

It is time to send something like this.


It would be quite easy to take her for FdC. Now she is an independent singer.

It must be noted that the Pedro Mafama worked as a lyricist and a producer alongside Pedro da Linha, who was the producer behind Eu.Clides song in Festival da Canção 2021.


He would be a great addition to the portuguese national final, but the issue I find with him is that he uses autotune in every single song, wich I don't dislike, but you can't use it in the competition and I'm unsure how good he sings live without them...

I like Portugal's entries most of the time but at this point I would welcome an entry from them that would not be feasible for featuring in xanax commercials.
