Well hello there! Welcome to the thirteenth summary article in ESC Views’ Pre-Contest Vote 2014! If you haven’t heard about it and how this entire system will work, feel free to click this fabulous link to take you to the ‘Launch Page’ of the competition. As we manage to compile more and more of these articles, they will be added to the Launch Page, so you can freely hop between all competing 37 entries! Right, shall we get onto another country?
This is how we’re running this series of articles in which we’re going to cover all 37 entries for this year:
- We’re going to take on these articles in the running order for 2014 (Armenia is first, Latvia is second etc). We’ll do two articles a day.
- We’ll refer back to the Song Presentation or NF Review of the song. We’ll provide you with the video so you can have a listen (if you haven’t managed to listen to it yet…which is highly unlikely!)
- We’ll also give you a few words from both of us while giving the song a score out of 12.
- Finally, there’ll be a poll below for you guys to vote and give us your points on the song!
Got it? 🙂
Song #13 in our Pre-Contest vote now and this time it’s one of the two countries that’s returning to Eurovision this year – Portugal. After a fan outrage at the selection (which has died down a LOT), Portugal will be represented by Suzy who’ll sing her party-esque song “Quero Ser Tua”. When Suzy was selected, we did a review of the song, in which we placed the song under the ‘pado’ genre, but if you think differently, your opinion! If you haven’t heard “Quero Ser Tua”, have a listen below!
Rory – Even though everybody says Catarina Pereira should have won, I actually think Suzy was the best one out of the lot! I’m often singing ‘Eu quero ser tua – woah, woah oh ah oooh’ without realising it and although people have sorta crossed it off, I think it might do really well! Score: 7 points out of 12.
James -As many people have said before, it’s a modern day incarnation of “Lambada”… but that doesn’t stop it from being supremely energetic and catchy! I’m glad Portugal have returned with such a strong entry, and this should stand out in the semi-final with its decent running order position! Score: 6 points of 12.
So now that you know what we think of the Portuguese song, what do you think of it? Tell us by voting in the poll!
Did you vote? Well by the end of this series, we’ll know how many of you fans love/like/hate Portugal’s song! However, stay tuned to ESC Views today, as James will be taking on the Netherlands!
