Filipa Sousa and her entry Vida Minha finished in thirteeth place with just thirty-nine points meaning that Portugal failed to get through to the final of the Eurovision Song Contest for the second consecutive year back in 2012 when the event took place in Baku, Azerbaijan. RTP, the broadcaster responsible for the participation of Portugal had to withdraw due to the severe budget cuts made but nevertheless, had always spoken extremely highly of the event, one which used to pull in the rating despite a series of disappointing results. 

According to preliminary reports, it seems that Portugal is looking to return to the Eurovision Song Contest which is set to take place in Denmark next year. The general feeling is the country is still going through a recession and should therefore stay out of the glitzy event but the team responsible for the Festival da Cancao would love to see Portugal represented on the world stage once more especially with the international singing competition increasing in prestige in the past couple of years seeing winners such as Loreen, Lena Meyer-Landrut, Alexander Rybak and Emmelie de Forest succeed across the board. Should Portugal confirm their participation, it will be made by the end of August, early September at the latest. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news as soon as it becomes available.
