No more than 10 issues! Time went by for another Eurovision Live Concert Portugal. Once again, the city of Setúbal has received a new set of Eurovision artists who joined the more than 90 who have done it since the show started.
In an ever-better organization, the concert is more than just a one-night stand. The day before the stars were received in a red carpet and before the concert they were able to take a boat trip on the River Sado.
The portuguese artists were welcomed, especially Anabela and Carlos Costa. The first one that due to its charm won the hearts of the audience as if it were 1993 taking all the true magic of the Festival. The second, he did a Eurovision medley accompanied by several dancers where the high moment was "Fuego"! It showed that the Eurovision show is alive and knocked on the door of a possible participation. Will it be?
Carla Ribeiro, often invited to the concert, made a small tribute to the songs of Albania and remembered Portuguese songs, always with her professionalism. The same as Gerson Santos that brought more recent themes of the Eurovision stand.
All the artists gave their best in this event and their involvement was greatly appreciated by both the organization and the public. The big surprise of the night was Mickey Harte who only with his guitar managed to remake his 2003 song making it current and special. Brilliant the soul of a true musician.
Justs showed his identity and charisma with three themes that did not escape the line of the current "Heartbeat". Poli Genova got a total audience involvement with any of his songs, but the highlight was undoubtedly the song that gave her the best rating at ESC and that everyone knew.
Krista was the revelation of the night! A real hurricane on stage! She cleverly opened with her Finnish version of "Eu quero ser Tua," continued with a ballad dedicated to his father and toasted the whole audience as if he were present. Then came "Marry Me" and she took the public to the maximum! You have to go back to Eurovision Krista!
Lucia Pérez was able to show how the Portuguese Soul is close to the Galician one. She sang in Galician, a language that the Portuguese understand well because it has the same origin, and even before "Que me quiten lo bailao", she made a version of a song sung by Amália Rodrigues.
The best way to end the event was with Madame Monsieur, participants from France this year. The audience received them so well that it was difficult to leave the stage. Mercy was entitled to bis and the requests to take pictures were so many that the organization was forced to remove them from the event. The Portuguese-French community present there gave them many souvenirs from Portugal and as the duo confided to us, maybe they will return to a concert.
Congratulations for this glorious event in which we also take part since the first edition!

The final of this Saturday will be opened by Ukraine, while the last place of action will be for Italia. Spain will act between Ukraine and Slovenia, in the first half of the final. The order of performance of the final, like that of the semifinals, is determined by the hand of the producers of the show to favor the dynamics of the show itself. After the trial of the BIG5 last Sunday, and in the press conferences after the semifinals, it has been determined in which half each of the 26 finalists acts.
This is the order of performance of the Eurovision 2018 final:
14. Czech Republic

4 presenters, dance, the next ESClopedia, Discovering Portugal and beautiful postcards will be the highest moments in a not so strong semifinal.
As you noticed from the excelent semi 1, we are not very good predicting results.
Anyway, these are the countries we think can proceed to the gran final of saturday:
Norway, Denmark, Australia, Moldova, Sweden, Hungary- for sure
Poland, Netherlands, Ukraine, Malta - our bets!
Italy, France and Germany will perform as well!

Herman José is considered by many as the "father" of contemporary humor in Portugal. He has German and Portuguese descent and began his activity in 1975.
He was already known to the public for having played some of the best known humor programs, when in 1983 he was ranked 2nd in the Portuguese national final. In total, he edited 7 albums although television is his most stable place. He currently has a TV show on humor and talk show every wednesday.
In Eurovision, he will appear in the style of documentary National Geographic, showing a little more about Portugal - It will be Planet Portugal. In every show.
However, this will not be the only moment with humor and facts in the Eurovision final this year next saturday.
Esclopedia, about the most incredible facts related to Eurovision (strange instruments, bizarre professions songs that left marks ...) and 1973, the story of how a song that represented Portugal in Eurovision became the password of a revolution - the portuguese entry of 1974.
Another piece of humor will be called 53 Long Years, about the multiple ways Portugal tried to win Eurovision until 2017.
