Check out Andy's reaction to the Portuguese songs below:

The final will consist of eight singers, and will be held in the Portimão Arena on the 2nd March 2019. The semi finals will see a professional jury, and the public each have 50% say on who they want to qualify. However, the final will be different and see regional juries, along with the public deciding on the winner.

This year Portugal opted to allow the artists to write their own song, and those composers who did submit entries were all responsible for selecting the artists to sing them.

We at Eurovoxx are excited for Portugal's next entry? Could there be a Eurovision winning song in these sixteen entries? Please telll us what you think in the comments below.
