The second set of eight artists tonight competed in the Portugal’s semi final 2 of Festival da Cancao, their selection show for Eurovision 2019.
Only four of the eight songs could advance to the Final which will be held on 3 March and which will be hosted by Eurovision 2018 co-host Filomena Cautela and RTP host Vasco Palmeirim. The qualifiers were determined by a 50/50 combination of votes from jury members (made up of music professionals) and a public televote. The qualifiers were NBC, Surma, Madrepaz and Mariana Bragada. They will join Matay, Conan Osiris, Calema and Ana Claudia in next weekend’s final.
