Portugal 2018

  1. Julio STRANGLES

    In a TV show this morning the director of programs from RTP confirmed that our national final will be under the same system as last year, two semi finals and the final. The composers will be invited to make songs just like in 2017.
    As for the hosting a meeting is being held today in RTP headquarters to decide the details regarding this year Eurovision. I'll update this as soon as there is more confirmed information.

    Notable to mention Diogo Picarra on the list as being one of the most famous singers currently in the country. Janeiro was the composer choice from Salvador, Antena 1, a radio station, selected Daniela Onis and the jury picked from an open selection Peter Serrado and Rita Dias. All the others were picked by RTP. Worth to mention both Jose Cid and Fernando Tordo who previously took part in ESC (1980/1998 and 1973/1977) and Julio Resende being part of the new band Salvador is part of.
    Links will be added to each name to songs composed by the ones I know of.
    There is a bit of everything from Bazilian to African to Pop, Rap, Folk and old style.

    No Jorge Benvinda, Meh :(
  13. NickEmpel BURGER AND FRIES

    From what I'm gathering, Diogo Piçarra is very much the favourite. He's a huge star in Portugal, so to see him sing his own song...

    ok, winner:
    I conquer it was the best of the night (keeping in consideration diogo was out), the song is a tribute to her Grandmother who has passed away. The lyrics:

    O Jardim (The Garden)

    Eu nunca the quiz / I never wanted you
    Menos do que tudo / Less than anything
    Sempre, meu amor / Always, my love

    Se no céu também és feliz / If in heaven you are still happy
    Leva-me eu cuido / Take me I'll care
    Sempre, ao teu redor / Always, around you

    São as flores o meu lugar / It's the flowers my place
    Agora que não estás / Now that you aren't here
    Rego eu o teu jardim / I'll be the one watering your garden
    (x2)

    Eu já prometi / I already promised
    Que um dia mudo / That one day I'll change
    Ou tento, ser maior / Or try, to be bigger

    Se no céu também és feliz / If in heaven you are still happy
    Leva-me eu juro / Take me I swear
    Sempre, pelo teu valor / Always, by your values

    São as flores o meu lugar / It's the flowers my place
    Agora que não estás / Now that you aren't here
    Rego eu o teu jardim / I'll be the one watering your garden
    (x2)

    Agora que não estás / Now that you aren't here
    Rego eu o teu jardim / I'll be the one watering your garden
    (x2)

    Agora que não estás / Now that you aren't here
    (x2)
    Rego eu o teu jardim / I'll be the one watering your garden
