Voting is now open for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2021! Once again, fans from all over the world can cast their votes for this year’s contest right now. But who should you vote for? To help you decide, let us take you through a review of each artist’s rehearsals and their voting details!
19. Portugal: Simão Oliveira – O Rapaz
Performing 19th in this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest live final will be Simão Oliveira from Portugal with the song “O Rapaz”. The track’s music and lyrics were written by Fernando Daniel and Diogo Clemente.
The performance of “O Rapaz” is subtle and traditional. The staging is minimalistic with a heavy focus on lighting to create an intimate atmosphere. The screens at the back are used to show historic elements of Portugal, in black and white fashion to complement the lighting and stage outfit.
Simão wears a very traditional outfit, with a brown blazer, white shirt, and black trousers topped off with a black bow tie and matching brown cap. The focus here is all on delivering his fado, a traditional Portuguese style of music. There aren’t too many changes from the first rehearsal, but Simāo is consistent with his professional and controlled vocals.
