Hello, it’s me…were the first words Filipa Azevedo sang last night during the first live show of “The Voice Portugal”. By the end of the night she was singing: Hello from the outside…
Yes, in a shocking and unexpected turn of events, Portugal’s Eurovision 2010 singer has had her dreams crushed on live television. Despite an ocean of hype and the love of Eurofans driving her forward, Filipa was eliminated from “The Voice Portugal”. Before her performance of Adele’s “Hello”, she revealed that her good luck charms are the shoes she wore to Eurovision. Sad face.
We gotta be honest. She was not perfect and the Portuguese audience simply wasn’t compelled to vote for her. Her mentor Anselmo Ralph had the opportunity to save her later in the show but elected to let her go.
It’s a sad night for a young girl keen on rebuilding her career. During her many years in exile, she worked as a shopkeeper and recently found the strength to let that life go. We hope she’ll keep on going. Honey: we’re always here for you!
