I’d be totally cool with these five qualifying. Degra.De and Fome de Viagem are those I’m most excited to see stagings for. I am still not over Fado Bicha staying in the semi. I wouldn’t mind Os Azeitonas making it as well, and Milhanas / Cubita both have nice songs, so I guess any of them can be a grower as well. Songs finishing 9th and 10th in this poll are the ones that would *really* have to convince me in live that they should go through. So far, sorry… It is quite a strong semi.
