Portugal's "Festival da Canção 2015" dates announced!
RTP, Portuguese national broadcaster, has announced the dates of the selection process for Vienna, Festival da Canção 2015!
The process will be comprised of two semi-finals to be held on March 3 & 5 with the final taking place on March 7. Twelve songwriters are being approached to compose entries for the competition.
As previously reported, six acts will compete in each semi-final. The two receiving the most televotes in each semi-final will progress to the final. A third act in each semi-final will proceed to the final as the result of a jury vote.
During the grand final, the six acts compete for a space in the ‘superfinal.’ There are three spaces available in the superfinal and the acts are chosen in the same way as in the semi-finals; the two most popular in the televote and one voted for by the jury panel. During the superfinal the winner will be chosen by televote only. All three shows of Festival da Canção 2015 will be streamed live from Lisbon.
Suzy and her song “Quero ser tua” represented Portugal in Copenhagen last year. The song competed in the first semi-final but failed to qualify for the grand final.
