"Dança comigo (Vem ser feliz)" ("Dance with me (Come be happy)") was the Portuguese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2007, performed in Portuguese, French, Spanish and English by Sabrina after she was voted the winner of the 2007 edition of Festival da Canção, the national selection final.
The song is a moderately up-tempo, Latin-inspired number. Sabrina sings about how much she loves a guy and invites him to join her forever.
As Portugal had not qualified for the final in the previous Contest, the song was performed in the semi-final. Here, it was performed seventeenth, following the Czech Republic's Kabát with "Malá dáma" and preceding Macedonia's Karolina with "Mojot svet". At the close of voting, it had received 88 points, placing 11th in a field of 28 and missing out on qualifying for the final by only 3 points. The result was Portugal's best finish since the introduction of the semi-final in 2004 and in fact resulted in the country, typically known for finishing well out of contention, becoming the most successful Western European entrant in the semi-final.
