It’s all going down in Spain. On Saturday evening eight acts will sing in the grand final of Benidorm Fest 2022. But only one will survive the night and grab the chance to sing at Eurovision 2022.
The running order order was decided this afternoon during a random draw in Benidorm. Unlike at the recent Eurovision semi-final allocation, acts drew specific spots (so not just first half or second half).
Benidorm Fest Running Order for the Grand Final
3. VARRY BRAVA
5. RIGOBERTA BANDINI
7. GONZALO HERMIDA
8. BLANCA PALOMA
Rayden, who finished second in Semi-Final 2, will open the show with his song “Calle de la llorería”. The entry, which inspires a lot of clapping, is a solid opener and should encourage viewers to stick around for a night or quality music and effective staging.
Tanxugueiras, considered strong contenders in the public vote, perform second followed by Varry Brava, who came fourth in the first semi-final.
And then come two of the big favourites: Semi-Final 1 winner Chanel will sing “SloMo” in position four, which Semi-Final 2 winner Rigoberta Bandini will sing “Ay mama” (and wheel her giant breast globe) on stage in spot five.
Xeinn and Gonzalo Hermida compete in spots six and seven.
Blanca Paloma closes the show with her beautiful ballad “Secreto de agua”, which features some stunning visuals, as when the floor becomes a sea of water. Queen of the sea!
