Following the blast of sunshine that was Suzy Guerra in 2014, Portugal has annonced that it will return to Eurovision 2015. We’re roasting a crispy suckling pig and throwing a babecue to celebrate this one, y’all!
Portugal is known as the least successful country in Eurovision. They have participated 47 times and have failed to crack the Top 5. Maybe the 60th anniversary is finally their time? Although Suzy didn’t qualify for the final this year, she has given Portugal good reason to return. She came 11th in her semi—missing out by just one point. Even better, she finished sixth in the televoting, showing that there was a lot of good will for her and her upbeat number “Quero ser tua” (I wanna be yours). We love her so much.
Portugal joins Armenia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland and The United Kingdom in the long list of countries that have confirmed their participation in Austria thus far.
So what do you think? Should Portugal stage a national selection? Should it go for an internal selection? Let us know!
