Eurovision 2020 | Elisa will sing "Medo de Sentir" for Portugal
After two semi finals and one grand final, Festival da Canção 2020 has finally come to and end, and we finally have a winner in Elisa with her song "Medo de Sentir".
A total of eights qualified from the semi finals to battle it out to be crowned winner of Festival da Canção 2020 and earn the right to represent their country in Rotterdam. The results were decided by a mix of televoting and a panel of juries from various regions around Portugal.
Filipe Sambado – Gerbera amarela do Sul
Jimmy P – Abensonhado
Tomás Luzia – Mais real que o amor
Elisa Rodrigues – Não voltes mais
Throes + The Shine – Movimento
Kady – Diz só
Elisa – Medo de sentir
Bárbara Tinoco – Passe-Partout
Filipe was the runaway winner with the juries, gaining a lot of the maximum 12 points on offerr, and finishing in a 21 point lead over Elisa in second place. Kady, Jimmy P and Throes + The Shine completed the jury top 5.
In a surprising twist, Filipe was not as popular with the televoters as he was with the juries, and only managed 4 points. Barbara was the winner of the televoters, with Elisa in second place. Tomas, Kady, and Throes + The Shine completed the televoters top 5.
