RTP, Portugal’s national broadcaster, will continue the “Festival da Canção” format in the selection of their representative for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Portugese Head of delegation, José Poiares, said that because 2014 marks 50 years of Portugal in Eurovision, Festival da Canção will be spread out to two nights. It will consist of a semi-final on March 8 and a final on March 15.
Ten songs will be chosen from the submissions to compete in the semi-final. Only five will move on to the final. All songs must be in the Portugese language, but the composers can be of any nationality.
