Simão Oliveira takes to the stage for Portugal 🇵🇹

Simāo Oliveira, Portugal, First Rehearsal, La Seine Musicale, Paris, 14 December 2021 Andres Putting/EBU

Simão Oliveira has really elegant staging with atmospheric lighting and nostalgic images of a Portugal gone by, reflecting the mood of the song (and, indeed, the artist).

The Portuguese participant delivers this classy ballad from the centre of the stage, alone.
