Portugal’s national broadcaster RTP announced with an Instagram post that the songs which will compete at Festival da Canção 2024 will be unveiled on the 18th of January.

Two months ago, RTP had made the 20 composers who will participate at this year’s Festival da Canção public and later on, their assortment on their respective Semi-Final was also revealed.

The composers have divided on each Semi-Final as of below:

First Semi-Final

  3. LEFT. (via application procedure)
  4. João Borsch
  5. MELA (via application procedure)

Similarly as last year, Festival da Canção 2024 will consist of two semi-finals and five songs will qualify to the final from each semi-final. A total of ten entries will take part in the Final and the winner will be determined by 50% of public voting and 50% of jury voring.

Last year’s Festival da Canção winner and ultimately, the portuguese representative for Eurovision 2023 was Mimicat with “Ai coração”, that ended up 23rd on the Grand Final, continuing Portugal’s three-year qualification streak.
