Eurovision Song Contest Entry 2-6

Portugal has never won Eurovision. With Finland's win in 2006, it now may be the oldest participant that hasn't won. They're going to try to break that record this year with Vida Minha by Filipa Sousa.

It's a traditional Portuguese ballad. It's a very well-sung traditional Portuguese ballad. But traditional Portuguese ballads haven't done well for them in the past. Better than weird socialist novelty songs, sure, but it's not a winning formula.

The video is straight from their national selection contest, and it's no great shakes. It's badly synced with the studio recording they've laid over the video.

Still, I kind of like this one. It's doomed, but I like it.
