Portugal 2014

  1. Julio STRANGLES

    Well seems that FDC will go ahead, though this time in a bigger format. Like it happened back in 2010 there will be a semi final and a final.
    5 Song from the semi will go trough to the final (the Semi final will take place on the 8th March while the Final in the 15th). This FDC will also be used to celebrate the 50 years of Portugal in ESC, which will be more seen during the Final.
    The composers will be selected by RTP (international composers are also invited) and will be asked to show proposal of songs which will or won't be accpeted, while the singers will be selected by the composers.(In 2012 RTP selected both singers and composers and matched them together unlike this year where composers will be able to select their singers).
    All songs will be 100% in Portuguese.
    Other big change is the fact it will be 100% televote, the only time jury and televote agreed was last year as both had Filipa first. In 2009 the first year of 50/50 The Televote winner was not the Jury winner same for 2010 and 2011.
    And unlike 2012 the show won't take place in a studio of RTP but on a external place called ''Convento do Beato''.

    I think a shopping mall, preferably with an escalator. That's never been done before, has it?

    ...Oh, wait! :D

    Those Paelinck brothers seem to be trying in several countries year after year. He also wrote 1 Life :)be: 2004) .
    I also read they would compete in the Belgian NF. Last year Solayoh indeed, I hope the song for Portugal, who ever wins, will be better. :)
  6. NickEmpel BURGER AND FRIES


    So true, Paelinck is in the same category as Gson and Down. They just try wherever they can. He wrote Sister ( :be:02), 1 Life (as you said, :be:04), then Solayoh ( :by:13) and he was also involved with the Maltese whale (2005 and 2009).
