Spain’s Chanel won Europe over during the pre-party season. And since landing in Turin for Eurovision 2022, she’s kept the fire burning, turning out a series of fiery rehearsals that left our eyes burning with her precise dance moves and her glorious voice.
Now, as hype builds surrounding the Spanish songstress and her chances of winning, Head of Delegation Eva Mora says that RTVE is ready to take up the challenge.
Speaking exclusively to Wiwibloggs ahead of our interview with the Cuban-born star on Saturday, Eva said:
“We did the best Olympic Games in history and would make a great ESC 2023. Spain has all the tourist infrastructures and we are sure that the institutions would be involved. We already have a plan to host ESC 2023.”
You’ll recall that Eva launched Benidorm Fest 2022 — Spain’s highly successful and much talked-about Eurovision selection show. It set a TV ratings high for RTVE and was trending all over social media for weeks. It drew praise domestically and abroad for the variety and quality of its songs.
Chanel is a multifaceted artist, bringing her magic to acting, dancing and singing. She has journeyed all across Spain doing musicals, performing in front of packed houses and transmitting her energy directly to onlookers, sometimes just metres away. With her song “SloMo”, which translates well across borders, she seeks to inspire and energise people at home and abroad.
This is a pop-dance track with an urban and Latin essence. The song was composed by Leroy Sánchez (ESC 2021 songwriter for Spain), Keith Harris, Ibere Fortes, Maggie Szabos and Arjen Thonen.
Writing ahead of Eurovision, I couldn’t hide my love for Chanel and her song.
“Fans of Spain’s Eurovision 2022 act have been using the mango emoji to share their love of Chanel’s juicy entry. But given the spice and enduring burn of her performance, a chilli pepper seems more appropriate. ‘SloMo’ catches fire thanks to its infectious beat and enticing reggaeton feels. But Chanel takes the flames even higher with her eye-popping choreography, which would leave even J. Lo needing to stretch. From the strobe light effects to the killer dance break, this production is a dizzying slice of joy and awe. If a Eurovision winner is based on entertainment, this is easily the most perfect entry of the year.
