Portugal in Eurovision Song Contest



Portugal 2014 | Suzy - "Quero Ser Tua"
Portugal has participated 48 times since 1964. It was a very bad start, as they managed to get Zero Points in the debuting year. They have never won the contest, and never made the top-5. In fact Portugal holds the record for most appearances in the contest without a win! The best result is a sixth place in 1996, and they ended last three times: 1997, 1974, 1964. Since the introduction of Semi-finals in 2004 Portugal only qualified for the Grand Final 3 out of 11 times.
