Portugal’s Junior Eurovision Journey
Portugal first took part in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2006, with Pedro Madeira singing his song “Deixa-me sentir”. At the close of voting, Portugal finished 14th in a field of 15 participants with a total of 22 points. Portugal participated once more in 2007, before taking a 10 year break and returning to the Contest in 2017. Since then, Portugal has participated a total of six times.
Portugal’s most recent participation came in 2021, when Simão Oliveira represented the nation in Paris with song “O Rapaz”. Once the combined scores were revealed, Portugal finished in 11th place with 101 points. This is currently Portugal’s best result at the Junior Contest, with 92 points coming from the online vote, whilst the remaining 9 came from professional juries.
