Things are heating up in Turin, where Spain’s Chanel has taken to the stage for her Eurovision 2022 second rehearsals. The Benidorm Fest champion performed another run-through of “SloMo” on the PalaOlimpico stage. Did she make us want more, more, more, more? Let’s take a look…
Spain’s Chanel “SloMo” — Eurovision 2022 second rehearsal
Oliver: A slight revamp of “SloMo” comes with new classic Spanish fanfare during the intro, and once again before the final chorus. It’s an unnecessary addition, but a welcomed one — it adds a hint of Iberian flavour to the already sizzling performance. The stage show is very similar to that at Benidorm Fest, with a few subtle tweaks — the lighting moves through gentle and sensual hues of orange, yellow and red, and the pyro shower rains over the stage in the final chorus. Chanel’s new matador outfit reveals to a skintight bodysuit during the dance break, which she nailed perfectly as expected. She’s also been working on her vocal agility; there are now more chances for her to show off her voice with more melismas and trills throughout. Nothing negative to say. She nailed it every time. Chanel is an athlete, and a superstar in the making.

What do you think? Did Chanel live up to the hype? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
No ganará… Aunque me encantaría que así fuera, también os digo que no la veo fuera del Top 5… Lo que si os digo que su actuación hará historia en Eurovisión y sera una de las más vistas y más recordadas y no solo por los fans Españoles si no por toda la comunidad Eurofans…. Ella hará historia CHANELAZO GARANTIZADO
I just love how, for once, Spanish fans are going nuts over their ESC entry. Some tweets reported that Chanel’s full rehearsal was leaked online, but luckily I haven’t come across said clip. Needless to say, we’ll be on tenterhooks right until the very end! 😀
Last year “Adrenalina” was overhyped too by the community, and it bombed hard. And yes, I haven’t forgotten “Fuego”, but that one had fire, this here is just stupid and repetitive.
No offense to Adrenalina but Slo mo and Chanel is light years ahead. Just from the small snippets ive seen, from the new mix of the song with the spanish horns that ive heard, and the amazing choreo i can tell you that this is unforgettable
Wait to see the whole rehearsal.
And you are a dumb….
pure envy!!! she´s a killer and she can win!!!
Trying to predict anything based on ‘last year’ is not knowing much about Esc. If the ‘last year’ rule applies when comparing songs of similar genres and styles, how come then that Manneskin won the year after Duncan did? If this ‘last year’ rules apply, the winner this year must be The Rasmus isnt it?
Last year, the year before that… Always comparing songs just because they are uptempo. Why dont you compare Greece and The Netherlands this year or Duncan and Poland? This comparisons seem to always occur with woman. I have never read of a male singer being called the whoever 2.0.
TOXICITY IS ON! What a miserable life you have, let the fans be festive and happy. No body ask you if it likes you or don’t. Go to support your favorite, not destroy the other artist…I wish that your favorite got the double of the result you are wishing to mine…
The performance is better than the song.
I think this year people seem to be more hung up than ever with the stagings and the songs doesn’t matter as much.
It is generally always like that. Some people have the funfair syndrome. They get over-hyped by the lights, the moves, the act and don’t really care for the content.
So what she is still a rockstar, She got the rock moves…!!!
I was afraid the stage would maybe be too dark, but it turns out everything is look great on camera. And as we know, the whole dancing routine is very impressive for first time viewers. It will be interesting to see how this kind of bop still can do in Eurovision. Many say the audience moved on from the style, but this is so polished and effective and the only direct competition is Albania, much more on the chaotic side of things.
True. Last year we had seven highly promoted and polished female bangers – Malta, Cyprus, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Greece, Croatia, Israel. This year, there’s only two (three, if we are counting Ireland, but in a way it’s more like a female version of Germany 2021 or Iceland 2021 than a ”serious banger”). Spain has an open door to easily nab a top 10 score after sever years of doing poorly. I really hope they’ll do it! They followed everything I gave as an advice. I seriously don’t know what more. Good luck, Spain!
Considering “She Got Me” got 4th place (also in a year without much direct competition on the bops’ field), I don’t see why “SloMo” can’t at least repeat the result.
Sorry but Chanel is still not winning ESC, no matter how much the rabid creatures on Twitter try to hype her up…
Who ask you? Your mom?
I cried out of joy and happiness. My favorite ESC entry ever and best performance in history of ESC!
ok its a great song and one of spains best entrys but its not the BEST performance in history , i could plenty of performanced that were better but this is stilla great song with great staging!
Bisogna essere bravi e metterci impegno per non capirci un cazzo di musica come lo staff di wiwibloggs, conoscere solo l’ESC e sorbirsi tutta la monnezza che negli anni parecchi stati hanno propinato deve aver seriamente compromesso il gusto e la capacità di giudizio in fatto di musica di questi “esperti addetti ai lavori”.
In english please?
Just use google translate
Infatti di musica wiwibloggs e i suoi fans non capsicono un c….o. Tutti vogliono l’eccitamento del show, delle luci, dei movimenti, dei messi in scena e addio la capacita’ dei cantanti, il contenuto delle canzoni. Una volta l’ESC aveva la classe, l’importante era la canzone. Non piu’. Spero che il mio Italiano era abbastanza bene!
Il tuo italiano è ottimo, e hai perfettamente ragione su tutto, credevamo di esserci liberati delle esibizioni da fenomeni da baraccone, ma si sono solo trasformate in qualcosa di ancora più noioso, squallido e inutilmente opulento. Almeno Verka Serduchka ci faceva divertire e ballare, e non si prendeva sul serio, queste “artiste” invece adesso si sentono tutte Beyoncé o Jennifer Lopez, ma con 1/100 della bravura, della bellezza e con 25 anni di ritardo.
I fenomeni da barracone ci saranno sempre affinche’ questi cossidetti esperti di musica continuano a darli l’importanza che non meritano.
And all this just to say that you prefer no without my glasses Mahmood and Blanco??
E perchè gli guardi?
I hope she will win i prefer spain than ukraine.
She’s a star for sure. I think because everything feels so similar to the National final performance that it lacks the immediate impact we had there when everyone was blown away. A bit of the novelty has worn off—but still—for most viewers, this will be the first time they see Chanel and SloMo. It doesn’t feel like the winner at the moment but I can’t see this not getting top 10 or 5 even. Last year with all the female bops it would’ve gotten lost. But there’s no one doing this kinda song (performance) this year.
If Jennifer Lopez isn’t successful with this type of performance anymore,
why should it be Chanel?
Because Jennifer lopez is Jennifer lopez and Chanel is Chanel. And also succes in charts is different from succes in a competition like eurovision. Even if slomo doesnt become a worldwide hit that performance is still gonna be one of the best performances ever at eurovision
Staging and performance = Good.
Song/Voice = OK.
Not a favorite of mine. It just does not hit my ear well. It will definitely get points this year.
I have watched some images of this second rehearsal and it reminds me of Euphoria. Not the song itself obviously but as with Euphoria the performance does not look like a live act. When I saw Loreen’s performance back in the day, she didn’t seem to be performing in the same stage as the rest of the contenders. I had the same feeling with Chanel.
Thanks for Euphoria!!! Chanel winner alerta!!!???
I dont think Spain will win. We still need to fill the gap between being systematically ignored and winning. Spain is in the right path but still not there. And it has nothing to do with song or performance but I still dont see some countries voting for Spain.
Portugal has joined the chat, ignored for almost 60 years and winning with most points in televote ever.
Same with Cyprus in 2018
Why did Portugal win in 2017? Spain Is doing a great job this year AND I see Chanel winning!
Not really, sorry
My entertainment today is reading tweets about Spain from the same people who wanted Rigoberta to win and made Chanel delete twitter. Life and karma is funny, spaniards. Appreciate your girl and never bully anyone like this again.
We all knew she’s gonna deliver even before the rehearsals. Chanel is a star. Period.
She would be great opener of the grand final and I don’t even think it would ruin her chance.
I can’t believe my eyes. I’m so proud of this team. Finally a professional performance where eveything is locked up from the beggining. From what we’ve seen, I think Spain has the complete pack. Ukraine is winning obviously but if Cyprus came 2nd in 2018 I don’t see how Spain can’t place 3rd. Also, it is bringing something new to the table. A latin flavoured track with a JLo-ish show while still preserving its originality. Best choreography on the Eurovision stage to date too. Some of you may need to wash your eyes or clean your ears, though, if you… Read more »
UKRAINE Is winning! That is what you think! Malta WAS the favourite last year AND see how she ended!!!
It’s not that I want Ukraine to win, tho. It is just they are going to receive a massive televote because of mostly sympathy votes and the jury will back them too (not the winner with the jury but a top 5-10 placing). I hardly see any other country winning, even though there are at least 5 or 6 that will deserve it better by judging just the performances. But you know… there’s a war in Ukraine. I hope I’m wrong. But at this point, I want to interiorized it before we get the disappointing result.
If Ukraine wins, I am going to be mad, seriously. I understand the situation, but hasn’t everyone, like, screamed ‘No, esc is not politics!!!’ for last ten years? And now it will be the most politicial politics the world has ever seen. It will just prove that esc is truely political
Well Malta was a favorite until rehearsals started and then Italy took the lead. This year strangely nothing changed during rehearsals. Believe anything can happen on Saturday.
Ok so this will flop IMHO. Its the eurobble Favourite which in reality is a kiss of death for her. I think UK have it in the bag now.
I come from the future. UK finishes in 15th place. Thans.
I am Spanish: I think they UK will do sooooo good this year. And I am so happy for both of us.
I agree Tom , it doesn’t go anywhere and it’s very dated and to me cheap
Good performance as expected. Will it win? No, but it can bring Spain their best result for 2 decades and bring them back to the Top10. That’s a good start for making the Benidorm Fest a tradition and keep strengthening Spanish entries in ESC.
As Willoam rightfully said in their reacrion video, even tp-5 would be too low for Spain this time. I want it to win madly, but expect a top-3 finish
Yeah it can definitely get a Top5, but I expect that differences will be quite small this year, so Top10 feels much safer to predict. Still likely to get Spain’s best result since 2003 – that’s pretty impressive for the very first year of Benidorm Fest imho.
So much to like about this entry and appeal all over the place. Juries will eat this up and it’s going to have massive success with the televote. Honestly, it should probably be the favourite in the bookmakers right now. It really does have everything and, for me, is the safest bet you can make inside the songs currently in the top ten.
It’s so weird. This year I don’t have any winning vibes from any of the contestants for the very first time
haha, so much envy round here!
I’m not impressed.
Chanel is clearly a wonderful performer who deserves an international recording career. Try as I might I just cannot get into this song. Still, I think the performance alone will land Spain in the top 10 this year.
I can say top 3 darling!
Just seen it France,Spain and Italy first half and United Kingdom second
I feel like it’s officially done for Spain, they’ve drawn the 1st half of the Grand Final. Unless they’re performing last in order of that first half, I really doubt that people are going to strongly remember Chanel’s act, until all the entries have been performed.
there is no way they will have her perform first. more like 11-13 place (i.e. Mans, Duncan, Salvador, Dami im)
Of course, people will remember her. She is booty hypnotic, making us want more more more more more 🙂
I personally feel less less less less less, after each performance. Also, the fact that you compare her potential running spots to past LEGENDS, not just winners, of this contest is downright hilarious. The entire Europe will decide Chanel’s fate in May 14th, not just one nation. Just like everybody elses. 😉
I still wish you luck however and may see achieve the result you so hope for. The song is just not for me but I’m just one person out of 200 million viewers.
Thanks for your wishes, but I am not from Spain. Actually, based on your name, I reckon we must have the same nationality. And to reply to your aforementioned comment, the comparison was solely made to showcase that performing in the first half does not eradicate the fact that Spain may still be a relatively strong contender in winning the ESC.
We don’t know the final results, but she is already a eurovision legend. Everybody speaks about her performance and her dance break, and that is a fact.
Why do you hate Chanel so much? I don’t think they are going to put in a bad position an entry from the Big5 and who is 5th at the odds.
Plus, if you want a big audience from Spain, you cannot set Spanish song at 21. People start watching tv much later here.
For the last time, Jesus, I dislike THE SONG, NOT THE ARTIST. Where did I even spread hate about Chanel here? On the part that I said “the whole Europe will decide her fate, not just one nation”??? God, the hypocrisy… Relax guys, I’m not biased against you! But you also need to calm down a bit.
What a nonsense comment!
Imagine if the EBU decide this a good song to open the grand final, and put her first.
I will cry
What city do you prefer for next year? Madrid or Barcelona?
London or Liverpool..
I’d love Liverpool. I’d love Valencia too (which is the Spanish main city of the same region where Benidorm is located. They have signed a contract with RTVE).
None just yet. Let us see who wins first!
Maybe Kyev… If Putin let us
Does anyone know when the big five find out if they are first half or 2nd . I know Italy already have there position , it’s the other four I am talking about
UK – 2nd half
France – 1st half
Spain – 1st half
Germany – Unknown yet
Thanks sesil sorry didn’t see your reply
That was amazing. Now haters gonna hate as always. But this is the most exciting performance this year by far.
En español porque quisiera que alguien de España me respondiera: Me preocupa un poco todo este exceso de españolismo añadido a la performance. I mean, vi incontables comentarios discriminatorios hacia Chanel por ser una mujer racializada nacida en Cuba —es decir, latinoamericana de nacimiento— que en más de una entrevista ha comentado que se siente española Y latina y que su canción está «cantada con acento cubano» y tiene influencias del pop latino. ¿Por qué tanto españolismo recalcitrante de repente? No me refiero a la torera, que ya estaba presente en el Benidorm, sino a esto del abanico y de… Read more »
Yo creo que simplemente los extranjeros relacionan los abanicos, la torera, las trompetas … con España y por eso lo han incluido en la actuación, para rascar puntillos y diferenciarse de los demás países, no le des muchas vueltas jajaja. Además, elementos como la trompeta y el tambor también se añadieron en los revamps a otras actuaciones en los últimos años como por ejemplo La Venda, que no es exclusivo de este año vaya
La verdad que no creo estar dándole tantas vueltas cuando fui insultada categóricamente durante meses en variedad de videos de Chanel por comentar que me parecía precioso que una española nacida en Latam tuviera la oportunidad de ganar Eurovisión con un Latín Pop Banger. Los españoles tienden a reaccionar con violencia a la palabra mágica, «latina». Se ponen muy violentos. 🙁 No le daría tantas vueltas si no me hubieran deseado la muerte a mí y a mi familia (sí, de verdad pasó. Solo por un concurso de cancione; poético) por decir lo que Chanel misma ha dicho, que nació… Read more »
Por desgracia, existen los racistas y los que vuelcan su odio en las redes sociales escudándose en el anonimato. Por otro lado, no hay “Spanish washing”, se ha hecho un revamp y nada más. España apoya a Chanel y a mí personalmente me da igual su lugar de nacimiento. Lo hace muy bien y se mantiene positiva, con fuerza y derrochando talento a pesar de algunos que se abren varias cuentas para parecer que hay muchos perfiles que no la apoyan. Solo por ese motivo es la ganadora para mí, Y creo que alcanzará una buena posición.
Hola. La verdad que dudo que esto sea un intento de “Spanish-washing”. Chanel es española y representa a España, entonces veo normal que intenten imprimirle un acento español a la canción. Sobre lo del supuesto odio español a los latinos… Un 30 % de españoles son latinos o de raíces hispanoamericanas, y Chanel se presentó como una chica de Cuba y no ha habido ningún problema por ello. Que te hayan insultado en internet? Me lo creo. Solo hace falta tener una cuenta en internet y poner un comentario para que te insulten. Ahora bien, que haya un odio generalizado… Read more »
Me alegra entonces (?). La verdad que ese 30 % es muy ruidoso, acabo de ver a alguien tratando a los cubanos de monos debajo del ensayo de Chanel. XD Yo no sé si serán madrinistas o qué pero veo mucho blanquito español reaccionando con demasiada violencia. Y no me olvido de los fans de Rigoberta y las Tanxu siendo xenófobos a malsalva cuando sus favoritas perdieron, lo cual solo ensució toda la lucha feminista que supuestamente defendían desde su posición como mujeres no racializadas. Supongo que me preocupa que estén forzando a Chanel a mostrarse demasiado española (o lo… Read more »
Timi, eso ya me suena un poco a mentira. Para ya. Y lo de mencionar “Madrinistas” intentando provocar sin saber muy bien qué decir… En todo caso “madridistas”, y los “madridistas” son los fans del Real Madrid. Asúmelo, no vives en España, no sabes lo que ocurre en España. Apoya a Chanel (y por tanto a España) o no la apoyes, pero deja de decir cosas raras por internet.
Watch spanish eurofans from threatening RTVE and bullying Chanel turning to the biggest fanboys and going mental now that they realized what we all said months now, that she is a top 3 material. Hope you apologize to her and the people you hurt. Chanel is a star and Spain will win. Periodt.
Spanish fandom is the only reason why I don’t want Spain wins. I still remember their unstoppable hate and I have the disgrace to talk Spanish as well so it was really painful to see. They are disgusting—Spain doesn’t deserve Chanel.
they bullied her, they booed her when she won Benidorm, they said she rigged the jury vote because she worked in the past with someone, she had to delete twitter. She was abused but she didnt give up, she went in so many pre parties, she worked day and night and now she will bring one of the best results for spain ever. She is a champ.
The song and the outfit are both abysmal though.
Hay unos cuantos que hacen ruido, pero los españoles apoyamos a Chanel. Admiramos su talento. Existen varios perfiles creados por la misma persona para desprestigiar el enorme talento de Chanel.
If Chanel performs 21-25 she will get televotes as crazyyyyyy
First half, unfortunately. I hope they put her 12-13 tho
UK and Spain will be battling for the victory IMHO
Oh my god :O
Spain was 2nd in my list just behind Greece, but Chanel you deserve it all!!!!!!!! :O
Current top 3:
You must be a lover of deep lyrics ?
I am a lover of songs that make me want to listen to them on repeat 🙂
