Festival da Canção – First semi-final results

Festival da Canção 2022

Portugal is well on the way to picking the song it will send to the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest after tonight’s first semi-final of the long-running Festival da Canção.

The 56th edition of the competition will consist of two semi-finals and a final. Each semi-final has ten entries, of which five will advance to the final from each show.

Tonight’s qualifiers in bold:

  1. Os Quatro e Meia – Amanhã
  2. TheMisterDriver – Calisun
  3. Diana Castro – Ginger Ale
  4. FF – Como É Bom Esperar Alguém
  5. Norton – Hope
  6. Aurea – Why?
  7. Kumpania Algazarra – A Minha Praia
  8. Maro – Saudade, saudade
  9. Valas & Os Astronautas – Odisseia
  10. Fado Bicha – Povo pequenino

The results were determined by a 50/50 combination of two votes: one from a jury made up of music professionals and one from a public televoting; each of these assigned 12 points to the highest placed contestant, 10 to the second, 8 to the third, and then 7 to 1 to the remaining. The sum of the two rankings will determine the qualifying acts, with the jury score taking precedence in the event of a tie in the fifth place.

We’ll be doing it all over again on Monday night.
