Lisbon, 27 February 2021

Feel like detoxing from a mediocre Melfest heat? Join us in Portugal to watch Earth’s most atmospheric fashion show: Festival da Canção.

Like every heat of the Portugese musical bonanza, it was once again a serve of avant-garde apparel set to fabulous LoFi lounge music. Check up on who performed tonight:

Line-up:

  1. Da Chick – “I Got Music”
  2. Tainá – “Jasmim”
  3. Ariana – “Mundo melhor”
  4. EU.CLIDES – “VOLTE-FACE”
  5.  Joana Alegre – “Joana do mar”
  6.  Pedro Gonçalves – “Não vou ficar”
  7. Ana Tereza – “Com um abraço”
  8. Carolina Deslandes – “Por um triz
  9. Graciela – “A vida sem acontecer”
  10. NEEV – “Dancing in the Stars”

Notable fashion hits include Da Chick‘s expressive Easter Beads top, Joana Alegre‘s ocean blue top/sand-coloured pants combo, Graciela‘s painter’s outfit that was tastefully cut into a flowy dress, and EU.CLIDES‘s ‘hot guy sitting on a bar crutch in an emerald bathrobe‘ look.

The Format

Like every week, the qualifiers were decided by a 50/50 jury and televote split. The televote was open for several hours, giving the Portugese ample time to discuss the songs with their family and friends (urged to #StayAtHome by the Portugese broadcaster), before thoughtfully casting their votes for their favourite.

The many song recaps were bridged together with a slew of interviews, and nostalgic throwbacks to the halcyon days of old Festival da Canção (it wouldn’t be Portugal without a generous dollop of saudade), but between all the chatter we were graced by 1996 contestant Lúcia Moñiz, who brought a contemportary rendition of her classic, ‘O meu coração não tem cor‘, proving the world she still has it.

One by one the five qualifiers were unveiled. They were, in order of announcement:

  • Joana Alegre!

These five hopefuls will join the five qualifiers from the previous semifinal. Tune in on next Saturday, the 6th of March, to face this line-up and see who emerges victorious in Festival da Canção 2021! Muito parabens!
