ESC 2011 #25: PORTUGAL - Luta É Alegria - Homens Da Luta

[rating before - 23rd; after - 25th]

When the Portuguese final came to an end, the audience booed. I don't understand why seeing as the televoters and the juries of Portugal chose this. Possibly because the song is dated and reminds of a time from the 70s, possibly because it is a joke entry.

Even though it is a song with a message, the tune is pleasant and you don't think of it as a song that is a protest. The placards and the megaphone are a classic sign of a protest, a clever idea to add the joy is a struggle in each language. not sure if they had others for the final, but we will never know.
