After electrifying shows in Amsterdam, Riga and London, the next stop was Madrid, where Spain hosted Southern Europe’s very own Eurovision preview party – the one and only #PrePartyES.
The first night saw a wide array of non-2019 acts blow up the stage at Madrid’s Sala La Riviera, including previous Spanish representatives Las Ketchup and last year’s Alfred García. They were joined by even more artists from across Europe, including Malta’s Ira Losco, Austria’s Cesar Sampson, Israel’s IMRI, and Melodi Grand Prix legend, Adelén.
However, the main event was the Saturday night where, after a glamorous red carpet entrance, twenty-two Eurovision 2019 acts took to the stage and worked up the crowd of excited Iberian chorizo. Each act gave it their all, but we want to know which act was your favourite of the night?
