Leo Middea would definitly stand out… It probably won’t win but at least it would stand out i like this one a lot.

Mela with agua would be my pick.. something’s missing from Filipa’s song, but we’ll have to wait and see what it’s like live. i miss a little Cabo Verde rythms this year though….i miss the beach and the sound of the waves lol

In my opinion change, memory, bosh and Filipa are doing well and I must say the great vocal performance is from memory. He have a wonderful voice. In my point of view he deserves win. The song is a classic, but with lots of charme and identity. Well done!

Most sound really similar to each other and it took me a few listens to spot the gems. Iolanda‘s song is one of the more immediate. But I also like Pontos Finais.

Portugal’s NF is the only one that I just cannot force myself to listen through. The definition of boring.

You should go see a psychiatrist and check that attention span… An early diagnosis may prevent you from having a miserable life.

“Ben longe daiqui” is my preliminary favourite.

I guess it is just the most immediate for me. I like general spirit and groove. They seem nice, and fun. That’s all for now.

I don’t necessarily think it can win, or even qualify… but so what.

Not sure yet, but it’ll be one of Perpétua, Léo Middea and Iolanda for me.

With a revamp at the end of his song, easily Joao Borsch!
