May 16 / Second Rehearsal Portugal: an Ocean between Portugal and Eurovision?
Olivier Rocher (France)
VIENNA, AUSTRIA – Portugal is a mystery to most of us. How can this great country fail to send decent up to date songs to Eurovision? This entry is a slight effort though, but that won’t be enough I’m afraid. Leonor is a good performer and at least she gives some fresh modern breath to Portugal for once. The staging is OK but won’t be remembered, nor will the song be, especially in this semi-final line-up.
