Festival da Cancao reaches a result

Shortly after the Nordic three made their choices, Portugal got going with the Festival da Cancao Grande Final (languages are a gift etc). After an opening act involving Dallas and Sesame Street to celebrate RTP’s 63rd birthday, eight highly assorted songs were done and performed in double-quick time, and then… the show expanded to fill the hours available.

We’d all gone to bed by the time the results came in, and it turns out that it was one of those nights.

1Srđan Lazić"Tražim te"
2Julijana Vincan"Istina i laži"
3Marko Nikolić"Dođi da te volim"
4Zoe Kida"Bejbi"
5Orkestar Aleksandra Sofronijevića"Anđele moj"
6Chegi & Braća Bluz Band"Devojko sa plamenom u očima"
8Dušan Svilar"Samo ne reci da voliš"
9Ivana Vladović and Jovana Stanimirović"Prijaće ti"
11Zejna Murkić"Nema te"
12Sara Jo"Muškarčina"
13Marija Mirković"Požuri, požuri"
14Rocher Etno Band"Hajde sad nek' svak' peva"
15Vasco"Znaš li"
16Tijana Dapčević"Ljubi, ljubi doveka"
17Gramophonedzie"Počinjem da ludim"

The regional juries adored the artistry and leather shorts of Gerbera Amarela Do Sul but remained unmoved by the cheeky charm of Passé-Partout. The good folks of Portugal adored the cheeky charm of Passé-Partout but just weren’t that into the shorts, and so the standard balladry of Elisa’s Medo De Sentir, reasonably well liked by both constituencies, snuck through the middle to win on average and she’ll make the (possible) trip to Rotterdam.
