Time-Warp Tuesday: Portugal, Actually

Contest: 41st – Oslo, Norway

Song: O Meu Coração Não Tem Cor

Artist: Lúcia Moniz 

Representing: Portugal

Result: 6th

Let’s get one thing over with – yes, this is the woman from Love Actually. But she isn’t an actress-turned singer. She’s a singer who can act! And a singer who can sing. Or something.

Oh GOD Jaz, just get on with it!

This is a woman who brought to the stage one of my favourite Portugese entries. I love their language, and this song really shows it off. It’s also an interesting song that changes things up for the whole three minutes, which stops it from reminding me of A Luta E Alegria (the most repetitive song of Eurovision 2011…and possibly of the contest’s entire history). In fact, maybe this is what A Luta E Alegria would have looked like if Homens da Luta were wearing costumes not thrifted from the basement of a fusty charity store, and had left their placards at home.

      No arguments here! I wish Portugal would send stuff like it now. It probably wouldn’t do well, but people like us would enjoy it =)
