Portuguese broadcaster RTP has confirmed their participation at Eurovision 2022 as well as opening the submissions window for Festival Da Canção.
The Festival Da Canção format will largely remain the same as previous years, however there is one change to the songs that will be selected. Now, a total of four songs will be chosen from the public submissions pool, while the other 16 will be chosen by songwriters invited by RTP to participate.
The contest will feature two semi-finals, with five acts qualifying from each. The Grand Final will feature 10 acts, and the winner will be determined by 50% jury and 50% televote.
The Black Mamba represented Portugal at Eurovision 2021 with the song, Love Is On My Side. Watch the performance below:
