This year we will use the usual FDC method selection, there will be 12 songs taking part on the national final. All of them will be in Portuguese and so will be the singers/composers. There will be 2 semi finals and 1 final each semi final will have six songs from which 3 will go into the final. The top 2 songs from televote will go directly to the final, the third qualifier will be selected by the jury which will consist on the composers of the songs taking part on the semi (they cannot vote on their own song). On the final the top 2 songs on televote will go into a super final together with a third song selected by the jury. The one of those 3 that will win televote will go to ESC.
