The Black Mamba to represent Portugal at Eurovision 2021
The Black Mamba are chosen to represent Portugal after a tense final selection show.

The Black Mamba have been chosen to represent Portugal at this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

The four-piece triumphed in the notoriously-long Festival da Cancao final selection show with their song 'Love Is On My Side', which will mark the first time that the country has been represented by a song performed entirely in English.

The group were put through despite finishing level on points with Carolina Deslandes courtesy of a new rule that puts a greater weight on the public vote than the jury vote.

Watch 'Love Is On My Side' below:
