Leading song disqualified from Festival da Canção

by Victor Hondal 69 views

The song that until this afternoon was leading the online voting stage of Festival da Canção, Luta assim não da, by Homens da Luta, has been disqualified because it was found out to have been performed prior to the Portuguese national selection for Eurovision. Consequently, the act does no longer appear on the official RTP voting website.

The public broadcaster RTP clearly states in the rules for Festival da Canção that "song proposals must be unique and unpublished, not marketed nor presented in public". RTP also reserves the right to replace the eliminated entry with another one, according to the broadcaster's regulations.

As a result, 29 songs remain in the race. You can listen to them here .

This is the song to face disqualification in Portugal – Luta assim não da, by Homens da Luta:
