    I’m really happy with this news… Welcome back, dear Portugal!

    All the countries are able to win, the thing is that there isn’t a formula established for that so it’s a matter of luck and other variants. There are some countries that have to conquer some voters from abroad, there are some that have to believe more in their talent and there are some that have to innovate in their style without losing escence.

    Portugal will never win thatt competition, as the other comment says, the standard songs are absolutely terrible.

    I’m happy about this. Let’s just hope they start making more effort now. There’s nothing wrong with the FDC, just the standard of songs entering it!!
