After Portugal has hosted the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon, the Portuguese entries have not been very successful anymore. The host entry “O Jardim” by Claudia Pascoral became last as a host entry, that was a shame. The year after the Conan Osíris could not even reach the Grand Final in Tel Aviv with his extraordinary entry “Telemóveis”.
The hosts of tonight’s show are Filomena Cautela, Vasco Palmeirim & Inês Lopes Gonçalves (Green Room). Filomena has also be one of the host of the ESC 2018 in Lisbon.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
