Eurovision 2022: Portugal in 9th place with 207 points

Written By Lara Silva

Portugal finished 9th in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 on Saturday night, after getting 5th place by the national juries. The country has reached this position in two other Eurovisions. Maro’s performance of “Saudade, Saudade”, an indie-pop track was accompanied by the voices of Beatriz Fonseca, Beatriz Pessoa, Carolina Leite, Diana Castro and Milhanas. 

The results of the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 are decided by a national jury for each country and televotes from the public at home (50% each). Even countries that did not qualify for the final get a jury, amounting to 40 countries. Each jury also gives 12 points to one country that is their favorite. Unfortunately, Portugal did not receive 12 points from any jury. Portugal received 36 points from televotes and 171 points from jury votes, winning a total of 207 points.

 

Let’s look at the voting and points for Portugal. Only 36 points were televotes from the public, with only France (6 tele), Belgium (1 tele), Spain (4 tele), Italy (1 tele), Lithuania (7 tele), Switzerland (7 tele), Armenia (4 tele), Montenegro (5 tele), and Poland (1 tele). All other 16 countries gave Portugal 0 points from televotes.

Regarding jury points, Italy and Spain were the only two countries to give Portugal 0 points. The 171 points from the jury came from Albania (1 jury), France (1 jury), Moldova (2 jury), United Kingdom (3 jury), Greece (3 jury), Slovenia (3 jury), Bulgaria (4 jury), Ireland (4 jury), Czech Republic (5 jury), Iceland (5 jury), Australia (6 jury), Belgium (5 jury), Latvia (6 jury), Azerbaijan (7 jury), Estonia (7 jury), France (1 jury), Georgia (7 jury), Romania (7 jury), Serbia (7 jury), Denmark (8 jury), Netherlands (8 jury), Poland (7 jury), Montenegro (4 jury), Austria (10 jury), Croatia (10 jury), Norway (10 jury), Ukraine (10 jury), Armenia (8 jury), Switzerland (5 jury), and Lithuania (8 jury).

The band Kalush Orchestra from Ukraine was crowned first place, as predicted. The performance reflected a fusion between folk music and rap.

Last year, Portugal’s Black Mamba finished 12th place with the song “Love Is On My Side”. Portugal has only won the Eurovision Song Contest once in 2017, with Salvador Sobral’s song “Amar Pelos Dois”.

The first time Portugal participated in Eurovision was in 1964, missing five editions in 1970, 2000, 2002, 2013, and 2016.
