After the mediocre result scored last edition, Mickael Carreira sent his brother once again in Veritons Song Contest, to revenge his result and the previous result of David (he failed to qualify with the song "Primeira Dama" back in Sibiu 74)
Rien à Envier, the song performed by David Carreira on the stage of Toulouse, received a high amount of points - 206 - now being one of the most successful songs in the history of the contest (higher than even Kendji Girac's Andalouse).
David Carreira is a Portuguese pop, dance, hip hop and R&B singer and an actor and model. His debut album N.1 (2011) reached number 1 in the Portuguese charts and follow-up A força está em nós to number 2 in Portugal. Singing in Portuguese, English and French, he has developed an international career and is particularly known in French markets as well with a number of successful singles including "Obrigado la famille" and "Boom".
The runner-up in Toulouse is the host-country itself. Marina Kaye is another performer that revenged her previous result (her song "Homeless" received 103 points and 5th place). Along with the winning legend of VSC78, Lindsey Stirling, she performed the song "Sounds like Heaven", a wonderful piece of music that received 194 points.
Top 3 was completed by one of the usual black horses, The Netherlands. Démira's song - Trophy - threatened the top 2 from the start to the end, at the end being too far beyond to reach those two. Netherlands received 144 points.
See you all in Lisbon!
