The Portuguese representative will be chosen through "Festival da Canção" - it will consist of two shows. Firstly, there will be semi-final on 8th March and then the grand final will probably take place a week later on 15th March.
RTP, the national broadcaster, has also announced that the outcome will be decided by televote alone. Ten artists will participate in the event, and the Portuguese broadcaster will invite ten composers to compete in the event. These composers will select a singer to perform their song in the selection. So Portugal will select their representative on the same night as Norway and Moldova.
