Ho, ho, ho! All 18 songs from Spain’s Benidorm Fest 2023 will drop on December 19. That’s what you call a Feliz Navidad.
RTVE broke the news on Thursday, and as usual, Twitter exploded. That was not a joke about Elon Musk. Fans are calling the date a smart move.
Many fans noticed the songs will drop the day after the World Cup finale. RTVE is broadcasting it, and yesterday played Spain’s Junior Eurovision song Señorita during the interval. Almost 5 million people saw it and it was just the first match. Here’s what Director of Programming José Pablo López said:
Ayer miércoles 4.885.000 espectadores vieron en @La1_tve el videoclip de Carlos Higes con la canción "Señorita" que representará a España en Eurovisión Junior en Armenia, el 40,9% de share. Vamos¡¡— José Pablo López (@Josepablo_ls) November 24, 2022
It wouldn’t be a surprise if RTVE used one of the most watched events of the year to promote the Benidorm Fest entries.
