Portugal 2017: watch our review of the finalists and vote in our poll

PORTUGAL – Festival da Canção 2017 will be the 51st edition of Festival da Canção, the music competition that selects Portugal’s entries for the Eurovision Song Contest. For the very first time, RTP abolished the language restrictions, so that artists may submit songs in any language(s), even without Portuguese. On 5 December 2016, RTP revealed the names of the sixteen composers that were invited to participate. The final will take place at Coliseu dos Recreios in Lisbon on 5 March 2017, hosted by Sílvia Alberto and Catarina Furtado. In the Final eight entries will participate. The winner will be determined by the televote and the votes from regional juries. (source:
