Tonight, the annual Festival Da Canção took place in Portugal, as eight acts took part in a diverse first semi-final of the competition, hosted this week by Jorge Gabriel and Tânia Ribas de Oliveira.

The eight acts performing in tonight’s semi-final were as follows;

  1. MEERA – Copo de Gin
  2. Filipe Sambado – Gerbera amarela do Sul
  3. Ian Mucznik – O dia de amanhã
  4. Bárbara Tinoco – Passe-Partout
  5. Blasted Mechanism – Rebellion
  6. Elisa – Medo de sentir
  7. JJaZZ – Agora
  8. Throes + The Shine – Movimento

A panel, including last year’s Portuguese Eurovision entrant Conan Osíris, decided half of the votes, with the Portuguese televote making up the other 50%. Following the combination of these points, the four qualifiers were as follows;

  • Bárbara Tinoco – Passe-Partout
  • Elisa – Medo de sentir
  • Filipe Sambado – Gerbera amarela do Sul
  • Throes + The Shine – Movimento

Next week, eight more acts will perform in the hope of reaching the Festival Da Canção final on 7th March and joining these four qualifiers at the final in Elvas.
