Portugal 2017: RTP reaction made the fans furious
PORTUGAL – Last night the first semi final of Festival da Canção 2017 took place. After the show you all read our review and opinion saying how bad (for Eurovision terms only) the songs were.
Well besides many Portuguese fans were furious with us (because in this web world it’s not apparently accepted to have an opposite opinion), RTP made them furious. Why is that?
When the show ended several viewers and fans commented in the social media that the songs were poor for an event like the Eurovision Song Contest. RTP replied:
“For many of the composers, Eurovision was not the goal, but rather to have this opportunity to show more of Portuguese music”.
This statement made the fans even more furious as it is NOW said by RTP that Festival da Canção is not for Eurovision but mostly for promoting their music regionally. Well done RTP.
…and for those who want to learn how to do bad in Eurovision scoreboard, they can watch again the show and get a good lesson! Shame!
