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:

  1. Karetus & Romeu Bairos “Saudade”
  2. Joana Alegre “Joana do mar”
  3. Fábia Maia “Dia lindo”
  4. Valéria “Na mais profunda saudade”
  5. Carolina Deslandes “Por um triz”
  6. NEEV “Dancing in the Stars”
  7. Pedro Gonçalves “Não vou ficar”
  8. Sara Afonso “Contramão”
  10. The Black Mamba “Love Is on My Side”

I hope one of them wins the ticket to Rotterdam.

I don’t even think it’s BETWEEN at all. Carolina has too big a name, both with public and RTP and it’s juries, to lose. Sadly for me, it’s her win 99% guaranteed and a stay in the semis for Portugal as there is no way the juries will go for her in high enough numbers to save from the televote score dragging her down. It’s neither the radio friendly thing or vocal performance juries go for nowadays nor is it a spectacular song to override the point above. It’s background music for the general audience and the majority won’t give… Read more »
