"We asked a special artist if he would be interested in representing Portugal and after he said that he would be honoured to represent us, we decided to ask the GBU about their opinion. So we just started discussions and have to look what happens, but if our proposal goes down well with the GBU we most likely keep participating." - HoD of Portugal
