  1. Rui David – Sem medo
  2. Susana Travassos – A mensageira
  3. Peter Serrado – Sunset
  4. Joana Espadinha – Zero a zero
  5. Lili – O vôo das cegonhas
  6. Catarina Miranda – Para sorrir não preciso de nada
  7. Joana Barra Vaz – Anda estragar-me os planos

  13. Cláudia Pascoal – O jardim
  14. Peu Madureira – Só por ela

The show also featured performances from iconic Portuguese performers such as Luísa Sobral and Simone de Oliveira. Catarina Miranda took first in the jury vote, but the tele-vote advantage held by Cláudia Pascoal put her over the top and sent her off to Eurovision!
