Likely Televote Appeal
Likely Jury Appeal
The trip-hop beat adds a contemporary edge to this atmospheric performance. What a gem!
This year’s hosts have just selected their entry for May’s Eurovision Grand Final. The televote eventually overruled the jury and opted to send Cláudia Pascoal with the song O Jardim.
O Jardim is a cracking song for the host nation. Really distinctive, heartfelt, and just like Salvador, Cláudia draws the viewers in. The trip-hop beat adds a contemporary edge to this atmospheric performance. What a gem! That Diogo fella played a blinder withdrawing from the field.
To cement what could be another respectable result for the nation, I would just keep Cláudia on stage, rather than have the writer of the song, Isaura, suddenly swivel her chair and start singing. Well done Portugal!
Can Portugal earn a respectable finish in May?
