esctoday.com poll results

The esctoday.com poll voters partly agreed with the results in the national final. Runaway poll winner Cartarina Pareira (61.6%) did qualify for the final. However, the only other act that had a major impact on the poll, Nina Pinto (19.8%), did not qualify. Only two of the acts that finished in the top six in the poll made it to the final. The other four acts that made it were actually the bottom four in the poll.

In 2009, Portugal was represented by Flor-de-Lis, who finished eighth in the first semi final and 15th in the final with their song Todas as ruas do amor. In 2010, the country will compete in the first semi final of the Eurovision Song Contest on 25th May.
