According to Miguel Cruz, director of the station, “this was a project that we designed with great expectations, because we believe that Portugal has a lot of talent, and proof of that was the huge amount of applications received in the first year, which led us to continuity and move on to a new edition”.
A particularity of this edition is the fact that the public can also vote for semi-finalist artists/bands/musical formations, which will take place on the site, between July 20 and August 31, and the winner with the highest number of votes will perform at the Smooth FM’s birthday but does not enter the final contest.
