Portugal are on thier own turf this year after Salvador Sobral was crowned champion in Kiev last time round. But with the largest roster of acts we’ve seen so far in the competition and talented artists waiting in the wings, the pressure is on Portugal’s Cláudia Pascoal as she attempts to retain her country’s status as champions of the competition.
