The authors of the 20 competing songs at Festival da Canção 2023 will be unveiled this Wednesday. The contest selects the representative of Portugal in the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC).
As in the previous edition, 16 of the authors were directly invited by the broadcaster RTP, while four were selected through a free public submission process (among 667 candidates).
The announcement will take place on Antena 1 from 15:40 (CEST), but the authors will also be featured on the RTP 1’s show A Nossa Tarde.
Festival da Canção 2023 will comprise two semifinals and the final between February and March. The big news is that each semifinal will qualify five participants combining the votes from the jury and from the public, while a sixth participant will be chosen only by the audience.
