At Eurovision

For the Eurovision Song Contest 2004, a semi-final round was introduced in order to accommodate the influx of nations that wanted to compete in the contest. Because Portugal placed 22nd at the 2003 contest, they was forced to compete in the first Eurovision semi-final, held on 12 May 2004. Portugal received 38 points in the semi-final which was not enough to qualify for the final. Therefore, Portugal will have to compete in the semi-final again in ESC 2005.
