PORTUGAL – It’s no secret that Portugal as a country and its artists as mentality, were never keen to the idea of fast food music and they we’re always stick to good quality music almost always based on tradition. After all Portuguese music has its own unique identity, something which is recognised internationally.
Isaura, the composer of the 2018 Portuguese entry, spoke recently about Netta’s song “Toy”. Speaking to Blitz, re affirmed her statement to oikotimes.com interview that she was suppose to sing the Portuguese entry alone but it came out natural to her to give its to someone who inspired her despite her vocal imperfection.
Heer favourite song this year is the one from Czech Republic which she considers as a good fun song / cool song. But when asked about the Israeli song which is a hot favourite to win, Isaura said:
When I hear the Israeli song, I think: how is she going to do this live? It’s instantly what I think…
Isaura cannot believe that Netta can deliver the song live despite Netta’s excellent performances both in Tel Aviv and Amsterdam promo events.
We all remember of course what Salvador Sobral said last year after his victory in Kyiv and during the winner’s press conference, attacking the Swedish song as fast food song causing the reaction of Robin Bengtsson and Alex Florea from Romania.
