Grand Final — 6 March 2021
Time: 22:00 CET to 01:45 CET
The show will be live-streamed on RTP’s website.
The final will be presented by Eurovision 2018 host Filomena Cautela and Vasco Palmeirim. Ten acts will perform — five qualifiers from semi-final one and five from semi-two. As with the earlier rounds, a 50/50 voting system will determine the results. However, rather than a single jury, there will be seven regional panels. Furthermore, in case of a tie, the public will have the final say. The juries had the power during the semis.
The running order is:
- Karetus & Romeu Bairos “Saudade”
- Joana Alegre “Joana do mar”
- Fábia Maia “Dia lindo”
- Valéria “Na mais profunda saudade”
- Carolina Deslandes “Por um triz”
- NEEV “Dancing in the Stars”
- Pedro Gonçalves “Não vou ficar”
- Sara Afonso “Contramão”
- EU.CLIDES “VOLTE-FACE”
- The Black Mamba “Love Is on My Side”
