We’re now nearing the end of the official countdown to Eurovision 2010 with just one week left before contestants take to the stage in the Norwegian capital Oslo for all the glitz, the glamour, the costumes and the chord changes that are the annual Eurovision Song Contest. The first of the semi-finals takes place next Tuesday May 25, before a second semi on May 27 and the grand final on May 29. As the 2010 competition closes in, we’re finalising our look at this year’s contestants.
Portugal will compete in the first semi final on May 25.
PORTUGAL : Filipa Azevedo – Há Dias Assim
‘Há Dias Assim (There Are Days Like This)’ is the track that will take Portugal towards hopefully achieving a strong result in this year’s competition – and they’re putting their hopes in the hands of beautiful 18 year old songstress Filipa Azevedo. The presentation on this live clip is quite basic, but what is does is to allow the Filipa to be the sole focus of attention. Her lower register is soft and velvety, while her top notes are strong. She just needs to keep the vocal acrobatics in check and she may take the Portuguese to the grand final on May 29.
