Os dez já estão escolhidos! Portugal has voted in the second semi-final of the 2021 edition of Festival da Canção. Ten acts sang their hearts out for one of the five places in the final.
In the end, a combination of professional jury and televote decided that NEEV, Pedro Gonçalves, Carolina Deslandes, Joana Alegre, and EU.CLIDES are one step closer to Eurovision 2021.
Portugal’s Festival da Canção 2021 Semi-Final Two results
The second of two semi-finals took place in Lisbon’s RTP headquarters. 50% of the result came from a professional jury that included Eurovision 2003 star Rita Guerra and Eurovision 2020 “Medo de Sentir” composer Marta Carvalho. The remaining 50% came from the televote. The qualifiers were announced in random order.
The second semi-final was packed with fan favourites and some qualifiers seemed obvious. But as ever, there was still plenty to play for.
After an intense qualifiers announcement, the five who’ll be back at RTP’s studios are: Joana Alegre, Carolina Deslandes, Perdo Gonçalves, NEEV and EU.CLIDES
