Portugal odds Eurovision

After a mammoth three and a half hour national final, Portugal picked Claudia Pascoal as the singer that will represent Portugal on home turf at the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday 12 May. Claudia has the honour of representing the home nation as Portugal hosts the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in two months time. She will sing “O Jardim”, in Portuguese in her bid to capture a second win in a row for the nation.

Portugal does not change the formula that worked. Like Salvador Sobral with “Amar Pelos Dois” , Cláudia Pascoal will present on May 12 at the Altice Arena in Lisbon a title in line with the one that allowed Portugal to win in 2017 at the 62nd edition of the Eurovision contest. Even minimalist staging, same vocal sweetness and even musical accompaniment, in acoustics. With “O Jardim” , the pink-haired singer will try to captivate and move audiences as effectively as her predecessor. "It's a song that should speak to every human," she told Eurovision-fr.net . "The loss of someone and what remains here in the world of the living."

Catarina won the jury vote, but came second with the televote. Claudia came second with the juries but won the televote leaving the two leading ladies tied on 22 points. As the televote winner, Claudia was declared the winner. Portugal will rely heavily on the outstanding vocal performance that crowd favourite Claudia gives in a bid for another strong Eurovision result in 2018. The country had never reached the top five on the Eurovision scoreboard until Salvador Sobral turned history on its head last year. “O Jardim” is a quiet, typically Portuguese ballad sung over a modern beat. It’s the second year running that Portugal are going for the understated strategy. The song is strong and memorable and will stand out in the 26-strong Eurovision final. A moving song, which deals with the theme of the loss of a family member, to be precise, the grandmother of the author. Giving water to the flowers of a garden becomes the metaphor for the care of the memory of the love of the deceased loved one.

In 2010 and again in 2015, Cláudia Pascoal participated in the auditions of Ídolos , the Portuguese New Star , but was not selected among the final finalists. Two years later, in 2017, she took part in the fifth season of The Voice Portugal with more success since she reached the semi-finals. Singer in the Morhua group, she is preparing an EP entitled “Para quem é, bacalhau basta”.

At the end of March, Portugal was the only country that knew in which position it will act in the final of May 12, which goes without going through the semifinals after the victory last year of Sobral, who got his first Eurovision victory for his country. Pascoal will be the eighth to act , a position that has previously given five victories: that of Denmark in 1963, the Netherlands in 1969, Sweden in 1974 and 1991 and Israel in 1998.
