Portugal in Eurovision

Portugals Eurovision history dates back to the 1964 Eurovision Song Contest, missing only 5 contests since then. Before Salvador Sobral won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017 with his song Amar Pelos Dois, Portugal has never been in the top 5 before. In 2018 the contest traveled to the Portuguese capital Lisbon. Some of Portugals most memorable entries include O Meu Coração Não Tem Cor (1996), Senhora Do Mar (2008) and Quero Ser Tua (2014). Elisa was selected to represent Portugal in Rotterdam in 2020 with the song Medo de Sentir before the contest got cancelled.
