Portugal | Cláudia Pascoal will sing on home soil!

March 5, 2018

 

Portugal have chosen their entry for Eurovision 2018 and it's Cláudia Pascoal with the song "O Jardim." Cláudia  will be singing on home soil in Lisbon after Salvador Sobral brought Portugal their first Eurovision win in Kiev 2017.


A total of 14 acts took part in the Festival da Canção final. The winner was decided by a mix of tele vote and jury vote. After the jury vote, Catarina Miranda was in the lead with 71 points, while Cláudia Pascoal was in a very close second place with 63 points. Completing the top 3 of the jury vote was Peu Madureira with 54 points.

 

The jury points were then converted into Eurovision-style votes. The results were as follows:

  • Catarina Miranda - 12 points

  • Cláudia Pascoal - 10 points

  • Peu Madureira - 8 points

  • Joana Barra Vaz - 7 points

  • Janeiro - 6 points

  • Joana Espadinha - 5 points

  • Rui David - 4 points

  • Susana Travassos - 4 points

  • Maria Inés Paris - 2 points

  • Lili - 1 point

Due to a tie break between Rui and Susana (they both received 19 points from the juries), they were both awarded 4 points, with no-one receiving 3 points. After the jury had voted, the results of the tele vote were announced:

  • Cláudia Pascoal - 12 points

  • Catarina Miranda - 10 points

  • Peu Madureira - 8 points

  • Anabela - 7 points

  • Janeiro - 6 points

  • Lili - 5 points

  • Rui David - 4 points

  • Peter Serrado - 3 points

  • Minnie & Rhayra - 2 points

  • Maria Inés Paris - 1 point

After the jury vote and tele vote had been announced, Cláudia and Catarina, both with 22 points,  tied for first place. However, it was Cláudia that was announced as the winner as she had won the tele vote. The final results of Fesitval da Canção were as follows:

  1. Cláudia Pascoal – “O Jardim” - 22 points

  2. Catarina Miranda – “Para sorrir eu não preciso de nada” - 22 points

  3. Peu Madureira – “Só per ela” - 16 points

  4. Janeiro – “(sem titulo)” - 12 points

  5. Rui David – “Sem medo” - 8 points

  6. Anabela – “Pra te dar abrigo” - 7 points

  7. Joana Barra Vaz – “Anda estragar-me os planos” - 7 points

  8. Lili – “O voo das cegonhas” - 6 points

  9. Joana Espadinha – “Zero a zero” - 5 points

  10. Susana Travassos – “Messageira” - 4 points

  11. Peter Serrado – “Sunset” - 3 points

  12. Maria Inés Paris – “Bandeira Azul” - 3 points

  13. Minnie & Rhayra – “Patati Patata” - 2 points

  14. David Pessoa  – “Amor veloz” - 0 points

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

Once again, Portugal used Festival da Canção to select their entry for Eurovision, but this year, it wasn't without it's problems. After the first semi final, the Portuguese broadcaster RTP announced that a mistake had been made when delivering the tele votes, which meant that Beatriz Pessoa had unfortunately not made it to the final, with Rui David taking her place.

One week on from the first semi final, allegations of plagiarism came to light with regards to Diogo Piçarra's song. As a result, Diogo decided to withdraw from the competition.
