Conan Osiris is the artist name of 30-year-old Tiago Miranda. He will sing for Portugal at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. Conan was born in Lisbon on 5 January, the same day as Hayao Miyazaki, the animation movie director that created 'Future Boy Conan' from where Tiago took inspiration for his name. The other half of his name, Osiris, comes from Egyptian Mythology from the symbol of rebirth and resurrection.

Not only can Conan sing, but he is also a self-taught dancer, songwriter, composer and producer. While he formally studied Art and Design, he claims to have more closely examined people’s lives - perhaps that is why he has also worked at the most iconic sex shop in Lisbon.

Conan had his recording debut in 2014 with an instrumental album called Silk. Then, in 2016, he released the Música Normal (Normal Music) album about which he stated: "Normal music is any music that can be absorbed by a living being. Normal music is the kind of music suited for whatever you want to do: to laugh, to cry, to dance, to travel, to take a shower…"

In December 2017, Conan released his third record, Adoro Bolos (I Love Cakes), and in 2018, he made his TV debut on RTP’s popular late-night show, 5 Para a Meia-Noite. The show is hosted by Filomena Cautela, one of the hosts from the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.

In late 2018, he was invited by RTP to compose a song for Festival da Canção, Portugal's national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest and he decided to sing his song himself. Telemóveis won the competition with the maximum number of points form both the jury and audience.

Lyrics of Telemóveis

Eu parti o telemóvel A tentar ligar para o céu Pa saber se eu mato a saudade Ou quem morre sou eu Quem mata quem, quem mata quem, mata? Quem mata quem? Nem eu se Quando eu souber eu não ligo a mais ninguém Se a vida ligar, se a vida mandar mensagem, Se ela não parar e tu não tiveres coragem de atender Tu já sabes o que é que vai acontecer Eu vou descer a minha escada e vou Estragar o telemóvel O telelé Eu vou partir o telemóvel O teu e o meu E eu vou estragar o telemóvel Eu quero viver E escangalhar o telemóvel E se eu partir o telemóvel? Eu só parto aquilo que é meu Tou pa ver se a saudade morre Vai na volta quem morre sou eu Quem mata quem mata? Eu nem sei A chibaria nunca viu nascer ninguém Eu partia telemóveis Mas eu nunca mais parto o meu Eu sei que a saudade tá morta Quem mandou a flecha fui eu Quem mandou a flecha fui eu Fui eu
I broke the cell phone Trying to call heaven To find out if I kill 'saudade' Or if I'm the one who dies Who kills who, who kills who, kills?  Who kills who? I don't even know When I find out I won't call anyone else If life calls, if life sends a message, If life doesn't stop and you don't have the courage to pick up You already know what will happen I’ll come down my stairs And I’ll ruin the cell phone The celli I‘ll break the cell phone Yours and mine  And I’ll ruin the cell phone I want to live And to wreck the cell phone What if I break the cell phone? I only break what’s mine Let's see if 'saudade' dies Or if in the end I'm the one who dies Who kills who, kills? I don't even know Snitchery never gave birth to anyone I used to break cell phones But I will never break mine again  I know that 'saudade' is dead It was me who shot the arrow It was me who shot the arrow It was me
