I'm surprised this contest is still relevant. I mean the winning song you hear during the contest and usually never hear it again. I NEVER even once heard again that Portuguese song that won last year. Don't even remember how it goes.
It's a jazz song in Portuguese, do you seriously expect radios to play it? The popularity of the contest is stronger than ever thanks to the reduction of joke entries and other factors.
The 2 previous winners are still very relevant in their home countries unlike the last 2 Swedish winners who are completely snobbed by Sweden nowadays.
Also 1944 is an excellent song, my favourite winner of all time.
