Three more tickets to Liverpool have been distributed across Europe this weekend, with Moldova, Iceland and Serbia all having selected their entries to the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday night.
As well as that, however, Saturday 4 March saw 2 more countries continue their quest to find the right entry to represent them at the 67th Eurovision Song Contest in May.
Here's your round-up of what else transpired across the latest installment of pre-selection season in Europe:
Portugal held the second of 2 semi finals of its renowned Festival da Canção pre-selection on Saturday night. As the last semi-final played out, we saw 10 songs being reduced to 6 ahead of the grand final on Saturday 11 March. The 6 confirmed finalists, after Saturday night's show, are:
Edmundo Inácio – A Festa
Bárbara Tinoco – Goodnight
Inês Apenas – Fim do Mundo
Ivandro – Povo
Dapunksportif – World Needs Therapy
Voodoo Marmalade – Tormento
The Scandinavian nation is not yet done with its mega Melodifestivalen extravaganza. After 4 heats concluded last week, this Saturday it was time for a semi final, before the big final takes place next Saturday 11 March. In this semi final, we had 8 entries performed (the 3rd and 4th placers from the aforementioned 4 heats), with voters giving them one last chance to make it into that all-important final. 4 songs were given that opportunity by Swedish TV viewers, with this lot being the lucky 4:
Nordman - Släpp Alla Sorger
THEOZ - Mer Av Dig
Kiana - Where Did You Go
Mariette - One Day
