Spain’s national final Objetivo Eurovisión 2017 has two parts to it. First, three acts will compete in the Eurocasting contest on January 12 for a spot on the national final. The winner of Eurocasting will then join a number of internally selected acts to compete in the Objetivo Eurovisión grand final in February.
And as always, the Wiwi Jury will be reviewing the songs and giving our take. The Wiwi Jury consists of 18 jurors from across the globe, coming from Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Bulgaria, Morocco, Ireland, Spain, Serbia, Austria, Portugal, the UK and the USA. We are truly international, y’all!
Each juror assesses each song independently, and then awards each song a score from 0 to 10. Before calculating the Wiwi Jury verdict, we drop the highest and lowest scores to reduce potential bias and outliers.
We’ll be unrolling the Eurocasting songs one by one over the coming days, and will review the grand finalists later in the year. You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the song title.

Objetivo Eurovisión 2017: Eurocasting wildcard

- LeKlein – “Ouch!!” (6.38)
- Fruela – “Live it up” (5.25)
Among LeKlein, Fruela and Javián, I think I’ll stick with the boys. I like LeKlein’s song, not excited, not keen on the “ouch” part. Fruela’s song is better, some trouble with the chorus (maybe it’s not my personal taste, I would expext something else). As for Javián, I can say it’s my favourite song among the three. It seems so spanish and modern at the same time. I really like spanish songs that have something related to their culture, especially in ESC.
Looking forward to the other songs, maybe we’ll find what we want in the internally selected artists.
