On May 11, Eurovision stars and fans will #ComeTogether at Stockholm’s Hard Rock Cafe for the inaugural #WiwiJam. Kicking off at 6pm and running until late, the event is free and open to everyone. Due to overwhelming interest, you’ll need a ticket to enter. You can get your ticket here. Come listen to the stars live, meet the team behind wiwibloggs and absorb the atmosphere of one of Stockholm’s premiere music venues. You can admire memorabilia from the likes of Madonna, Michael Jackson, Nirvana, Slash and ABBA — and create some new memories of your own! Some of those memories will most definitely involve this lovely lady…

Spain’s Barei at the #wiwijam

Barei came out of nowhere to become Spain‘s representative at Eurovision 2016. Her 15-year career as an unsigned artist took a total 180º when she won Objetivo Eurovisión and signed with Universal. Her song “Say Yay!” will be the first Spanish entry without a trace of Spanish language in it. That courted controversy, but she’s looked past the naysayers and kept singing “yay, yay, yay!” in her perfect English. That is how you do it! Her go-getter attitude and positivity have won the hearts of those inside and outside of Spain — including all of us here on wiwibloggs. Get ready for some Spanish ferocity and a tune of empowerment — Barei is in the house!

Barei at Eurovision in Concert 2016 (interview)

Have you rehearsed your fancy footwork? Are your toes coordinated enough for the challenge?

Then get ready for some non-stop dancing with Barei’s dancefloor hit!

She’ll be one of the highlights of the first #WiwiJam and you don’t want to miss her senorita sizzle.

Barei received a whole lotta love from the Wiwi Jury, our in-house panel of musical unprofessionals.

wiwiblogger Padraig awarded the song a perfect 10. Here’s his ode to the Spanish songstress:

It’s easy to dismiss a song just because of hype. But do so at your peril. For every Edurne there’s a Måns Zelmerlöw. And I’m putting Barei firmly with Måns. There’s no other song quite like ‘Say Yay!’ in the contest. It’s an instant pick-me-up and infectiously feel-good. And unlike so many upbeat Eurovision entries, it’s completely cringe-free. This is mainstream music for the masses and I’m completely okay with that. Because it’s pop perfection. I pray that Europe doesn’t screw over Spain yet again. Say yay, yay, yay!

Barei is the fifth artist to join our guest list at the #WiwiJam, but there are plenty of other names in the pipeline. Stay tuned for more…
