RTP, the public broadcaster responsible for the participation of Portugal at the Eurovision Song Contest is set to announce a return to the competition within the next couple of weeks. The nation which is yet to win the international showcase has not managed to enter the top five thus far, with the best result being a sixth place finish achieved by Lucia Moniz and her entry O Meu Coração Não Tem Cor back in 1996. Ruslana, winner of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2004 recently stated that she wants Rui Andrade to represent the country and take the crown back home. The male vocalist who is a known figure in Portugal has recently covered Fabrizio Faniello's song I Do during an open air concert in Setubal.

Ruslana, a famous artist in the Eastern side of the continent is fully backing the artist to represent Portugal upon their return and technically speaking, the public would definitely show their support noting that Rui was a second runner-up within the Portuguese national selection on two consecutive years; in 2011 and 2012 respectively. Headlining an open air festival in the city of Setubal, Andrade showed his love towards the Eurovision Song Contest by choosing a song from the 2006 edition to perform. He had three songs during the course of the evening and thus the selection was very much thought of in advance. With crystal clear diction and a strong vocal repertoire, it is easy to see why Ruslana recommends him to do the honours for his nation. Stay tuned to for all of the latest news.
