Festival Da Cancao 2021 – all the fun of… something fun?


Those crazy Portuguese have leaked (all over YouTube) the twenty songs that are going to vie for the title of RTP’s 2021 Eurovision Song Contest entry in Lisbon on 6 March. Beforehand, there will be two semifinals (20 and 27 February) where the votes of a jury and viewers will decide the qualifiers – five from each heat.

That mammoth final, then, will have the usual regional juries which will be turned into 12-10-8 etc, and a national televote.

The YouTube playlist appears below, and is of the usual Portuguese quality. The lists of the semifinalists in a table format will follow.
