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?

You can listen to all the performances in our playlist below and then choose your favourite. You can choose as many as you like, but remember — you can only vote once. So make that vote count.

This poll is about pre party Spain. Not all 3 pre parties. Some ppl here are so obsessed that can’t even get their facts straight. The few but noisy haters may also check wiwi team’s review on utube. They all agree that both Miki and Katerine gave stellar performances, not just ok, but stellar. Finally, as no other 2019 wiwipoll seems to be rigged by Spaniards or Greeks, please chill out and get a life

Greece first. LOL. You Greek guys are so funny. Why do you have to lie yourselves? What do you gain by fake voting multiple times your entry ? Really I don’t get it. People are not deaf. If you are not blind, this poll is about performances in pre-parties, 3 of them. While Katerina in Amsterdam sucked, in London no performance, in Madrid she was better but not something wow. So, make math, and Greece gave the best perdit of 3 pre-parties. LOL. I know that my comment will get many – downvotes because this poll is ruined by Greeks.… Read more »

They were all on point vocally and the idea to use northern lights is very nice and when the Joiking is going on and we see him as a dark silhouette it was something new to me and I hope they stick with this as it really elevates the song! I think it now has potential top 15 maybe even top 10. If they keep the northern light… Read more »

I a way I am glad that nobody talkes about Germany although I am from Germany. We could have had at least two songs and performances that would have slayed in the contest, but the NDR made an exclusion from their own selection procedure and added Sisters. So we must live with a place in the bottom area of the table again. I don’t think we will be last – at least.

Your song is awesome, for me it was the only song I liked from your selection. I have goosebumps everytime I hear it, both in live or studio version, and I once cried on its touching lyrics.
For me the song deserves to finish somewhere around 15th place, I think I will send one SMS for it in the Grand Final.
I also mentioned Sisters as being one of the best in Madrid. The girls were one of the few whose vocals was on point there.

Personal thoughts: Armenia can go from a certain qualifier to a certain NQ within few days. She legit had technical problems tio but thats not an excuse when everybody had it and sounded even greater! I feel like the song is too big and risky for Srbuk’s vocal. Unluckee that she also opens the 2nd semi.
Belgium can also be a certain NQ.
Israel is so underrated imo.
Iceland as always slaying.
Greece altho sounded great in Madrid, I think there were better performers.
Albania by far the most consistent performer of these pre parties tbh

This poll has to be rigged with Greece coming out on top with 293 of 1260 votes. She struggled in Madrid like she struggled in Amsterdam where she was “under the weather not feeling good”. If you have ears that can hear sound then you know that she has work to do to sing the song on pitch. I love the studio cut, but the live performance just isn’t where it needs to be. Good luck from Texas…..Greece really needs it this year.

I can see KEiiNO joining them on this aspect. – Some unsung heroes that did a great job but won’t get many reactions; Ester, Anna and Michael. – I still don’t know how to feel about his song, but Oto really impressed me with his passion and tone. – Many of you may not like Kobi’s style or his song, but the man can really sing.… Read more »

Oh God I hate to admit this because I don’t like the song, but Hatari had the best performance this time followed by Kobi (what a voice!) Miki (always so uplifting), Keiino (as expected) and Tulia (though not my cup of tea). Some seemed to be out of tune this time, such as Albania, one of my favourites. My disappointments were once more Greece and Armenia.
All in all, after all concerts, Hatari, Duncan, Miki, Kobi, Jonida and Tulia are the best performers in my opinion.

Armenia was the act that surprised me the most. I do like the song, but I feel like Walking Out is not the right song for Srbuk. She can’t handle the song. From all the performances of Walking Out I saw, there was not a single one, where she was not nervous reaching the high notes. Plus, compared to the studio version, her pronounciation seems by far worse, she has to improve it.

I wouldn’t be so sure she doesn’t understand, actually she even talked about the meaning of the song in her interviews. She is very possible doesn’t understand only what every word in part means though, but not the overall translation. The effect you hear comes in most part because of intonations. When a language is new to you, you can learn certain lyrics and know the translation of them, but you still don’t know how native speakers use intonations, so you can’t intonate the words right and from aside it can seem like you don’t understand a sh_t from what… Read more »

Spain is the most energetic and fun. Iceland is very interesting. Katerine sounded really nice this time. But vocally Oto was the best of the night even though the song is just not good enough. Montenegro and Armenia were the worst. Sbruk had technical issues but besides that vocally she’s just not powerful enough for that song. It will be very tough for her opening the semifinal.

They only fool the casual viewer, not the juries. And yeah, what they have in common is internal selection.

First of all, it was the best pre-party of all happened for now during this year’s pre-party season. There were many good vocalists who manged to give a good moment even despite technical problems. Some of them to mention: Lake Malawi (kudos for those background images, hope they will use them in Tel Aviv), Katerine Duska, Miki, Michael Rise, Srbuk, Oto, S!sters, Anna Odobescu.. Only vocal-wise, I’d say Roko had the best moment, but in terms of creating an atmosphere, KEiiNO absolutely slew! They shined the brightest on that night and totally stole the show!

I was really surprised by Oto and Roko…don’t really like their songs but they were both really good live, Jonida is always amazing but again not my favourite song. I think Katerine was brilliant but starting to get bored of the song whereas i really liked it when i first heard it. Michael Rice absolutely smashed it as usual, i know we won’t win but hoping for left hand side of the board.
