A special music composition under the title of Tirei à sorte has been created as the music background for the routine by Raquel Tavares and João Tiago. The pair will represent Portugal at the forthcoming Eurovision Dance Contest on 6th September.

A mix of Rumba and Tango is how this composition is described. Tirei à sortewas composed by Fernando Martins who also was involved with last year's participation. Its lyrics talk about fate and love. The influence of fado is once again presentby the use of the Portuguese guitar. The song is yet to be revealed but it will be presented in the next copule of days.
