The already traditional pre-eurovision of Portuguese artists with OGAE Portugal fans finished some hours ago. The place was special because it was the Eurocaffé that will open within a week.
In this meeting, in addition to viewing the videos of competing songs, the singers Cláudia Pascoal and Isaura were able to answer the questions of the fans.
Isaura showed her surprise to the world of Eurovision that she did not know and that is great. Participating in Eurovision in Portugal will be a moment they will never forget. The experience is being wonderful and added that they still do not have idea of what it will be.
By other hand, Claudia does not feel the responsibility of winning and thanks the Sobral brothers for having won and for allowing this to the Portuguese. She's feeling an incredible support and she noticed it also in Madrid. There, they met some of the artists and they both felt a good vibe from all the artists.
About the performance in ESC, Isaura revealed that they are still thinking about how the performance will be and that there may be some surprise. They said choosing clothes has been a horror (humorous) because they love fashion but have very different styles. In this regard, the concern with the clothing for Eurovision has been very different with the national final. If in the pre-selection they wanted to show a little of them, now they have to show that to 200 million.
Someone asked Claudia what the color of her hair would be, and she again, with all her sympathy, joked that it would be her hair to say. But still said, "I would like to see the whole audience of the Altice Arena with pink wigs. That would be a biggest surprise and hahappiness!"
A Dutch journalist questioned why Isaura was turned away. With great sincerity and without complexes, Isaura said that the studio where they performed for the first time was very small and did not want to be taking protagonism to their partner since she only sang in the middle of the song. It just happened!
Both Claudia and Isaura proved to be very accessible people, simple and friendly! They will be Eurovision's ambassadors this year and are already a national pride!
In the end, the members of the OGAE were able to give their vote in which the twelve points went to France, ten to Israel and eight to Spain!
The party continued until shortly on the Eurocaffé with DJ Nuno Eira.

It has been a really special year to us! Week after week we've been giving you the news we consider as important about Eurovision but because our goal is to promote and to support the work of all the former Eurovision artists, our staff likes to bring to you all the information about new releases (albums and songs). And of course, a Chart every week that without you it wouldn't have been possible.
This year, we also made a dream came true. The Eurovision was won by Portugal for the very first time, and it has a special meaning from our staff since #EOT is based in Lisbon!
Thanks for your support every week and every day!
Merry Christmas and we wait for you in May!

Portugal, Setúbal - Saturday 9th.
For the 9th time in a row, a group of fans and the Municiplaity of Setubal held the Summer concert that ended the Eurovision season (for fans) of 2017. Now we are ready for 2018 and for the first national finals that will took part probably in December.
During 9 years our website and our team took part in the organization of this concert with more or less artists, but always with success.
The worst problem this year was undoubtedly the fact that many artists could not attend the show because the event was scheduled for the same weekend in Frankfurt. The result of that was that the event in Germany was canceled and even the international artists in Setúbal were few, they left the public satisfied and eager to receive the next Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.
During two hours the audience could listened to Sanja Vucic, Nathan Trent, Anja, Sasha Song and Timebelle.
All of them were supposed to perform 1 or 2 songs, pero por culpa de Mirela que canceló el espectaculo por problemas personales, the organization pidió a los artistas que interpretasen uno o dos temas más.
The high moment of the concert was the tribute that Nathan Trent made to Salvador Sobral singing the winning song of Eurovision. The next day, Nathan made headlines in all Portuguese newspapers. Nathan also provided us with two more songs from Eurovision as well as his song: Satellite and Heroes.
Another surprise came from the hand of Sanja Vucic who played the song of Inga & Anoush from Armenia. Modlitva was also very well received by the public and Sanja showed that she is a great interpreter. Just to remind that she's the actual number 1 in our Chart.
Anja from Denmark sang 4 songs to us. 3 of them evergreens and classics of pop music in which she was not shy to show her vocal skills. Sasha Song sang some of their songs aside from their Eurovision song and managed to put the whole public standing with their interpretation of Hit the Road Jack.
But the national artists were not lacking either. Anabela and Marco Quelhas (MTM) reminded us of some of the moments in Portugal's road to win Eurovision this year by performing their songs.
During the break a video wall with all the portuguese entries in Eurovision was shown and it was great to see the audience remaining at their seats, dreaming, singing and satisfied by the deserved victory.
It was a great show and you should not miss the 10th anniversary next year. Even if you are planning to visit Lisbon next May, don't forget not to spend all your budget and save some for Setúbal!
