We have a winner in Portugal! MARO will represent Portugal in May with the song ‘Saudade Saudade’.  The song is written by Maro herself along with John Blanda.

The final night the 56th edition of Festival da Canção was four hours, and guided by former Eurovision host, Filomena Cautela, and TV host Vasco Palmeirim. The show was broadcast live from RTP’s studios in Lisbon. Two previous weeks, 2 semi-finals took place, to get an initial field of 20 songs down to a competitive 10.

The winner was decided by televoting and a regional jury panel each accounting for 50%: 1 from public televoting, and 1 from a jury comprised of representatives from the 7 statistical regions of Portugal (Lisbon, North, Central, Alentejo, Algarve, Madeira and the Azores). MARO with the song “Saudade, Saudade” won both the public vote and the jury vote.
