IEIEOHH… I mean… HO, HO, HO! Santa is spreading joy and happiness across Spain and RTVE has given us further proof today. After announcing a national final earlier this month, Spain’s national broadcaster has finally decided on its six hopefuls for Eurovision 2016. All of you silently suffering will officially be relieved of your pain and wonder sometime between 28 and 31 December.
In recent weeks Eurofans have been naming their favoured contestants using the hashtag #euroapuestas. From that RTVE concluded that the fan favourites to sing at Eurovision 2016 are Raúl Gómez, Xuso Jones, Maverick, Jorge González and Brequette — who lost to Ruth Lorenzo back in 2014 with a stellar performance of “Más”. The state broadcaster has emphasized that the selected lot is very talented and represent a variety of genres within Spain. Our hopes are high — and we pray they are met!
