Dino Alves will be in charge of the outfit of Nonstop. Alves was also responsible for the outfit of 2B, the Portuguese representative in the last year's Eurovision Song Contest. The choreography of the Portuguese girl band will be done by Marco de Camillis, who also performed this duty with 2B. It is unknown yet who will be thespokesperson of the Portuguese jury.

Because 2B came 17th with 51 points in the semi final last year, Portugal has to enter the semi final of the 51st Eurovision Song Contest.
