Tonight is by no means the Euro-feast we were treated to last weekend, but less is more, and we wouldn’t want to over-indulge!
Slovenia will become the latest country to reveal their song for the contest in a special show this evening, with Sweden and Portugal concluding the semi-final stages of their competitions tonight. Here’s everything #YOU need to know before the shows this evening!
PORTUGAL – Festival da Canção Semi-Final 2 (22:07 CET)
Festival da Canção continues with ten more participating acts tonight, fighting for five more spots in next weekend’s final. It’s a change of hosts tonight too, as Tânia Ribas de Oliveira and José Carlos Malato take over the reins for tonight’s semi-final.
The ten acts competing in the second semi-final are;
- Da Chick – I Got Music
- Tainá – Jasmim
- Ariana – Mundo melhor
- EU.CLIDES – VOLTE-FACE
- Joana Alegre – Joana do mar
- Pedro Gonçalves – Não vou ficar
- Ana Tereza – Com um abraço
- Carolina Deslandes – Por um triz

SLOVENIA – EMA 2021 Special (20:00 CET)
Slovenia’s EMA takes on a different guise this year, with the artist already chosen and the song ready and waiting to be revealed. Ana Soklič will return for Slovenia after she was unable to go to Eurovision 2020, but there is still a degree of mystery surrounding exactly how her entry for Rotterdam will sound. All we know is that it’s not a ballad, uses pre-recorded backing vocals and it’s in English!
All will be revealed tonight in a special edition of the annual selection show EMA, with Slovenia’s 2018 representative Lea Sirk and TV personality Nejc Šmit co-hosting proceedings tonight. The show will also be celebrating 60 years of Slovenian involvement in the Eurovision Song Contest, dating back to the 1961 debut of Yugoslavia in the contest.
SWEDEN – Melodifestivalen Semi-Final 4 (20:00 CET)
The last seven acts in this year’s Melodifestivalen show all tonight, with two more acts qualifying for the final and a further two heading to next week’s traditional Andra Chansen round. Christer Björkman is joined by guest hosts Per Andersson, a Swedish actor, & five-time Melfest participant Pernilla Wahlgren in tonight’s show.
The seven acts in tonight’s semi-final are;
- Tess Merkel – Good Life
- Lovad – Allting är precis likadant
- Efraim Leo – Best of Me
- The Mamas – In The Middle
- Sannex – All Inclusive
- Clara Klingenström – Behöver inte dig idag
- Eric Saade – Every Minute
The Mamas begin their Melfest title defence tonight, but face stiff competition, most notably 2011 entrant Eric Saade who returns to the Swedish selection for the first time in 6 years.
