#ESCAPED: How Portugal Avoided ‘Nul Points’ In The Grand Final

In this series from Eurovision Ireland, we will be taking a look at the participating countries and their entries that have avoided the dreaded ‘Nul Points’ in the Grand Final – thanks to just one other participating country. Today we look at Portugal.

1965

In 1965, Portugal was represented by Simone de Oliveira in Naples. “Sol de inverno” would have been awarded the dreaded Nul Points had it not been for the Monaco Jury awarding Portugal just 1 point. Portugal finished joint 13th out of a field of 18.

1999

In 1999, Portugal was represented by Rui Bandeira in Jerusalem. “Como tudo comecou” would have been awarded the dreaded Nul Points had it not been for the French Jury awarding Portugal 12 points. Portugal finished 21st out of a field of 23.
