PORTUGAL – In a recent interview, Simone de Oliveira the Portuguese representative in both 1965 and 1969 states that she sees it impossible for Portugal to win for the second year in a row.
Simone de Oliveira states that the Portuguese song is an “Incomplete Garden”, playing on the title of the song. Although the lyrics are lovely, she says that too much is missing to make the song a winner.
Although these words could easily be dismissed as a case of personal opinion, the artist did take part in 6 editions of the Portuguese national final and took part as recently as 2015, with the song “À espera das canções” (Waiting for the songs).
