Catarina and Suzy have very catchy songs, I guess that’s why they dominated this poll, and I wouldn’t mind if either of them win, but I prefer either Zana or Rui.

Catarina’s song is indeed VERY dated, and again it will get completely lost in the semi-final in Copenhagen….!

This is the best out of the five and I’ve actually grown to like it a little. I think Catarina will dominate tonight, especially that it’s 100% televote, and she dominated the televote in 2010 with a similar song. Pretty sure it’d be able to qualify, but only if her live vocals can improve.

If Portugal want good result they must send Zana. Catarina is not good, she had better song in 2010, this song wili be flop by juries because she has not good vocal and almost all song with her sing 3 back singers . I m disapoint, because Rui don t have good song this year. He had amazing song in 2011 and 2012 with both finished on 3 rd place in final. With his song from 2011 he wili be the winner of this year national final. My TOP 5 1. Zana 2. Rui 3. Raquel 4. Catarina 5. Suzy… Read more »

I’m so glad Portugal is back at Eurovision. A very strong final in Portugal. I love all these songs. So it doens’t really matter wich song wins because anyway Portugal will have a worthy entry in Copenhagen. Any of these 5 songs should bring Portugal to the final.

Welcome back Portugal and good luck!

Alyona Lanskaya had a dated song last year and Belarus made the final. Portugal has a good song and deserves go to the final. There are many contemporary songs boring. At least this outdated is catchy

I’m not butthurt over Sanna’s win. I knew she was going to win from the very beginning, doofus. “Mea Culpa” is better than that rubbish…

I don’t care if Ace Wilder didn’t win. Anything would have been better than that mess that won.

To the two noobs below me,

At least this is better than the outdated, over-hyped rubbish which is “Undo”. Now go to your closet and pray forgiveness…
