It seems that the first good news for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 are on their way. According to escportugal.pt.vu, Portugal is about to return to the contest next year. The withdrawal this year was due to the privitization plans of RTP something that didn’t happen anyway. The RTP executives are working on the country’s return to the Eurovision Song Contest. Although RTP will not air the semifinals this year they are thinking seriously to broadcast the grand final on May 18th which is anyway a prerequisite for a broadcaster to participate next year.
