Festival da Canção 2021 is underway in Portugal, and on 27 February the Iberian nation will complete the line-up for its final. Semi-final two is stacked with fan favourites, but one act has emerged as the clear winner of our poll — NEEV.
NEEV is your favourite to win semi-final two of Festival da Canção 2021
A total of 1.845 votes were cast and your top 5 was clear. If it was up to you, NEEV would sail through to the grand final with his song “Dancing In The Stars”. He was your top preference with 41.46% of the vote, or 763 votes specifically.
The contemporary ballad with commercial appeal has been a fan favourite since its release and that showed in our poll. NEEV won in a landslide, picking up over 390 more votes than the runner up.
The second spot in the final, according to you, should go to Pedro Gonçalves and his infectious pop-song “Não Vou Ficar”. He was the chosen one for 14.42% of our readers, that’s 266 votes.
Third place is gracefully occupied by songstress Carolina Deslandes. Her gentle ballad “Por Um Triz” gathered votes from 12.63% of our readers. That’s 233 votes.
The fourth ticket to the Final should go to EU.CLIDES with “Volte-Face”. A total of 9.21% of our readers want to see him in the grand final, which equates to 170 votes.
If it was up to our readers, Joana Alegre would snatch the last available ticket to the final. “Joana do Mar” received 8.29% of the vote, which is 153 votes.
