Another country has confirmed that they will be participating at Eurovision 2014 and even more good news as it is a country returning to the Contest – but who?
Portugal’s national broadcaster RTP has announced that they will be returning to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014. The news came through their Official Facebook Page.
Portugal withdrew from Eurovision 2013 due to financial constraints and they were sorely missed. We wrote of the rumors of their return to the contest in September . When people had seen the challenging recent budget that the country had to make, we feared that Portugal may not be able to attend Eurovision 2014 – but we are so delighted that they are back!
To celebrate their return to the contest – we have to play their most successful Eurovision entry to date – Lúcia Moniz who sang “O Meu Coração Não Tem Cor.”
Eurovision Executive Supervisor, Jon Ola Sand, confirmed in a tweet his own personal excitement at the return of Portugal to Eurovision
Now we just need confirmation of Greece coming to Copenhagen to make this the ultimate fairytale. We think that this will be on the cards too, according to our sources in Greece.
No announcement on how Portugal will select their act for Eurovision 2014 yet – but that is the least of their worries. We are just happy to have them back!
Eurovision was certainly missing Portugal at Malmo.
