For the past week, you have been submitting your predictions for the final round of Eurovision Prediction 2022. In one of the three finals due to take place this week, you were asked to predict the winner of Festival da Canção 2022. Now, let’s take a look at who you collectively expect to win the Portuguese ticket to Turin!
Tonight, Portugal’s entry for Eurovision 2022 will be determined by a 50/50 jury/televote split. The jury vote will comprise of the seven regional juries (Lisbon, North, Central, Alentejo, Algarve, Madeira and the Azores). Their points will be combined from those of the Portuguese public. The televote will take precedence in the event of a tie for first place, as was the case last year.

- Syro – “Ainda Nos Temos”
- Milhanas – “Corpo de Mulher”
- Inês Homem de Melo – “Fome de Viagem”
- Aurea – “Why?”
- Os Quatro E Meia – “Amanhã”
- FF – “Bom Esperar Alguém”

- Maro – “saudade, saudade”
- Pepperoni Passion – “Código 30”

For the past few years, our players haven’t been particularly successful in predicting the outcome of Festival da Canção. Last year, over 1/3 predicted that Carolina Deslandes would win with “Por Um Triz”. Meanwhile, only 3 players predicted The Black Mamba’s win.
In 2020, over 2/3 of our players predicted that Barbara Tinoco would win Festival da Canção 2020. Meanwhile, eventual winner Elisa received around 22% of predictions.
Back in 2019 however, the majority of our players correctly predicted Conan Osiris’ win. And the year before, almost 2/3 of players correctly predicted Cláudia Pascoal’s win.
Members of the ESCXTRA team will be thrilled with this result, as they also selected “saudade, saudade” their winner in our XTRA Decides feature.
After each national final, the points will be assigned and you will receive a rankings update via our Eurovision Prediction platform. Furthermore, we will make sure to notify you via our Eurovision Prediction Facebook page, our Eurovision Prediction Twitter page and here on the ESCXTRA website. The player that accumulates the most points after all the rounds have taken place will be crowned the winner of Eurovision Prediction 2022!
In 2021, our 363 prediction players predicted the correct national winners 7 out of 13 times. The year before, in 2020, 10 of out 27 times…an all-time low. To be fair, 2020 was a very unpredictable year in general. In 2019, our Eurovision Prediction players collectively predicted 16 out of 29 national final winners correctly. In 2018, your record was 19 out of 30.
So far, our players have guessed 10 out of 22 selections correctly. Let’s see how many of tonight’s three entries will have been predicted correctly.
With this being the last national finals of the 2022 season, this is your last time to secure some points!
