Patrick: Suzy is pure sass – that’s official after that rehearsal. WELL DONE SUZY – you show us a little bit of dancing and a little bit of leg. I’m a big fan of this performance – it is full of energy and passion – you have to dance with the dancers. The staging is perfect – for me it looks really Portuguese!  The vocals are still not the best, but I think she has really improved since “Festival de Cancao” – The National Final of Portugal -. I think Portugal has a big chance to go straight to the Final. Bravo Suzy!

Wiwi: This is one of the most underrated songs of the year, and the bookies better watch out. Despite what they say, I believe this is headed to the final. Suzy is a blast of sunshine in a sea of dreary ballads. I will cling on to her rays and hope she ferries me to the comfort and crazy of the samba club. Love this woman. Love her song. Douze points!

I do agree that we shoul send another coreography: They coul really put to couples dancing Lambada or Zomba. That would be more joy. The brasilian guy, please, what is he doing there?

Still, we will be in the final, cause, it’s all ballads in our semi final, and we really can dance with this one.

Hmm, this is less awful than I imagined it would be, but I still think this is pretty terrible. Suzy seems adorable, but that’s not enough. This dress needs to go too.

I( would like to see this one in final, but Portugal doesn’t convince with choreography, the show, it would have been better if they used the two male dancers paired with female dancers and dance heart to hear rather than waving flags and drum beating, it would have been better if they mad elove with the show insated of just dancing and singing with flags and drums which is nothing special, turkey and Greece did that so many years before they won eurovision song contest then they decided to look at the chhoreography to bring something real on stage to… Read more »

Huge improvement! Go Suzy! She was so good at engaging the crowd in Amsterdam, she deserves to qualify (and thank God she’s ditched the “I want to be a stripper when I grow up” dress …)! Altogether now, “Wah-wah Way-wah-way!!!”

It looking more and more likely that Portugal will qualify, it’s bright, it’s fun, it’s happy clappy and I think she will garner enough votes to get through.
In final however, reckon near the bottom

Well done! So much better than it was before. I hated this song when i first listened to it (didn’t like any of the songs from the NF, for that matter), and now i have to say they really managed to quiet down the pimba cheesy aspect of it all… and just make it energetic and festive! Her vocals and confidence improved, the coreography improved, the song improved, it’s just fun! I’m still not sure it will qualify, since they have mixed reviews, but i really hope it will.

It’s very well staged, and Suzy’s vocals have greatly improved on the NF. I’d say Portugal are a fairly safe bet for the final now.

ZZZZ… She is singing a little better. Just tell me that is not her ESC dress. Naked in Portugal, where everyone knew what this is about, and cocktail party at ESC???
I’m expecting several middle-aged people in over-developed countries will be reminded of their ballroom classes and their cruise shows around the Mediterranean. That might see this (…) through to the final.

She needs to show Europe more of the guy with the red vest. Apart from him, there is not much interesting going on on stage. And come on, she is an ok singer, but can’t she dance to save her life.

I like the choice of the national colours on the background but the pattern is way too busy.
