These were the results of Festival da Canção 2023

The first semi-final saw seven qualifiers, instead of the expected six. This was due to Esse Povo’s televote number not being active during the voting window. As a result, RTP allowed Esse Povo to qualify automatically to the final. The results from semi-final one are below.

Portugal’s Eurovision journey

Portugal debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest with António Calvário’s “Oração” in 1964. Since then, Portugal has participated in the competition 53 times – appearing the final 44 times. Their only win in the competition came in 2017 with Salvador Sobral, performing his heart-wrenching song “Amar Pelos Dois”.

Portugal’s most recent participation was with MARO with the song “saudade, saudade”. MARO managed to qualify for the Grand Final and once there, she finished 9th, after receiving 207 points from the jury and the televote.
