This time next week Benidorm Fest 2023 will be upon us. Spain will be searching for an act that can once again secure them a podium place finish at Eurovision.

Once all the songs from this year’s national final were released, we asked y’all to vote for your favourites. And vote you did – 6,272 valid votes were recorded in total.

After counting them up, we can now reveal the results…

Agoney is a favourite to win Benidorm Fest 2023

It was extremely tight at the top. Only two votes separated first and second place.

But in the end it was Agoney who managed to pull ahead. His song “Quiero arder” earned 1,044 votes, which is 16.65% of all those cast.

Agoney rose to fame on Operación Triunfo 2017. As part of his time on the show he participated in Gala Eurovisión, which was used to select Spain’s act for Eurovision 2018. Although he didn’t manage to win this, Agoney is now in Benidorm Fest 2023 with another shot at making it to the contest. And if our readers were to have their way, we would see him in Liverpool this May

Just being pipped to the post is Fusa Nocta. Her blend of flamenco and urban beats has captured the hearts of many. “Mi Familia” would be a new sound for Spain at Eurovision, but one that would also showcase the rich flavour of he country’s music scene.

In the poll, Fusa Nocta was awarded 1,042 votes – that’s 16.61% of the total.

The gap opens up a bit more as we move down the rest of the results. Taking the bronze medal is band Megara. Their entry “Arcadia” secured 661 votes (10.54%).

The top five is then rounded out by Alice Wonder’s “Yo quisiera” and Vicco’s “Nochentera”. They picked up 542 (8.64%) and 492 (7.84%) votes respectively.

Full results: Who should win Benidorm Fest 2023?

  1. Agoney – “Quiero arder” | 16.65%, 1,044 votes
  2. Fusa Nocta – “Mi Familia” | 16.61%, 1,042 votes
  3. Megara – “Arcadia” | 10.54%, 661 votes
  4. Alice Wonder – “Yo quisiera” | 8.64%, 542 votes
  5. Vicco – “Nochentera” | 7.84%, 492 votes
  6. Blanca Paloma – “EaEa” | 7.57%, 475 votes
  7. José Otero – “Inviernos en Marte” | 5.47%, 343 votes
  8. E’FEMME – “UFF!” | 4.62%, 290 votes
  9. Sofía Martín – “Tuki” | 3.59%, 225 votes
  10. Aritz – “Flamenco” | 3.38%, 212 votes
  11. Rakky Ripper – “Tracción” | 3.24%, 203 votes
  12. Sharonne – “Aire” | 2.42%, 152 votes
  13. Karmento – “Quiero y duelo” | 2.36%, 148 votes
  14. Alfred García – “Desde que tú estás” | 2.06%, 129 votes
  15. Famous Oberogo – “La Lola” | 1.74%, 109 votes
  16. Siderland – “Que esclati tot” | 1.61%, 101 votes
  17. Twin Melody – “Sayonara” | 0.97%, 61 votes
  18. Meler – “No nos moverán” | 0.69%, 43 votes

Alice wonder has the best chance at Eurovision. I think her live vocal will stand out a lot

Don’t understand the hype for Fusa Nocta.
Her song is messy and the melody is so boring, the message about family is pretty good but already done plenty of time before.

If Spain chooses her I guess it’ll be fine since she is attractive

Mi Familia is the only song i have heard from any national selection this year that sounds like it could be an actual song and not something from Eurovision. Even other Benidorm entries dont give me that vibe

I think Mi Familia is a wining Eurovision song, and we know the staging is gonna be fire. Im just worried about that breath control, i think Fusa should call up Chanel and ask her how to get the same breath control and lung capacity as her

Cinan your videos are great fun 🙂

I personally love Fusa Nochta and Karmento’s songs.
Both feel modern but also Spanish – if ya get me.
Mi Familia – has a Rosalia vibe and that is where Spanish music is going internationally atm. The younger voter will love this.
Agoney’s song is obviously the favourite but I think this sound had is shot a few years ago and would bottom at Eurovision tbh.

It’s quite interesting for me, as a Spaniard, see how Megara is very high in all the international rankings, but not in those made in Spain. I guess rock is a genre we do not appreciate as much as other countries do. I think my favourite ones are Fusa Nocta and Alice Wonder, very different from each other. But I cannot decide until I see the performances (next week already!). Another intesting fact is that Aritz is not high in either the international or the national surveys, while it is the favourite for the organization (RTVE). I am curious to… Read more »

No chance, Spain has got one great entry and a few other decent ones but also plenty of filler just to make up the numbers, it’s not up there with Portugal or even Finland.

I think Agoney has the best shot at a high position out of the frontrunners. Yes, it’s like a Michael Ben David 2.0 but I think Agoney will do it much better since quiero arder is a much better song. I’ll put Megara in 2nd most likely to do well, simply because it’s such a high-risk high-reward song and it will need great staging to boost it even further. I think its great and would do well at eurovision but if Spain wants to back up Chanel’s result, Arcadia is a bit risky. I suppose quiero arder is also risky… Read more »

Am I the only one here who finds Mi Familia just a bit messy and all over the place? Not exactly my favorite out of the bunch.
Anywho, my favorites in this year’s BeniFest are Aritz, E’Femme, Alice Wonder, and Jose Otero

Personally, I love “Yo quisiera” by Alice Wonder followed by “UFF”from E’FEMME and Nochentera by Vicco.

Of the Male artists, Aritz and Alfred, although I’m a bit weary of Aritz’s vocals and Alfred’s song can be niche at times.

Very similar to my ranking. I have Fusa Nocta as my 1st, and José Otero as my 2d. I’d be happy with either winning. Agoney’s song is fine too. I have high expectations for his performance regarding choreography.

Spain could get a good result with several of them: Vicco, Megara, Fusa Nocta, Aritz, Agoney, Blanca Paloma, Alice Wonder, José Otero… And others if they surprise us a lot with staging, like Famous, Sofía Martín, Rakky Ripper, Karmento or E’Femme

I don’t love any of these songs yet so no favorite. But looking at who has the vocals to succeed live and who doesn’t, I’m preparing for another messy result.

As always, it’s hard to judge until we see the staging.

I have very high expectations for Fusa Nocta, I really think she could land Spain another top 3 results if her staging matches the music video visuals. I don’t think we should count out Vicco’s Nochentera, it currently has the most streams out of all the BeFest acts.

Fusa Nocta has the most risky entry. With a presentation that doesn’t connect, this could easily be the new Fulenn (I’m still perplexed of why this entry didn’t do much better, but people have spoken). With a presentation that sits well with people, I can see the top 5 potential, which would be the best back-to-back result from Spain in decades. Agoney, assuming he can at least somewhat competently sing while he dances, isn’t finishing bottom 5 for sure. His lowest is probably around 17th or so. But I can’t see it reaching in top 10, definitely not top 5.… Read more »

The choice is very simple for me here, it’s Blanca Paloma, you have to reward people that really succeed in bringing something different and memorable to the competition and “EaEa” is actually one of very few tracks this season that I’d rate a maximum 5/5, it would absolutely make for an entry you can be proud of regardless of the result in Liverpool, also worth mentioning this is her 2nd great entry in a row at Benidorm as well.

There are so many national final playlists that I need to listen to and rank. I just finished up Croatia yesterday and I’m thinking of tackling the last seven songs from Norway and probably Ireland in Denmark because those two national finals have a very small number of songs, that I can listen to in a short period time.

Arcadia ,for me , is a top 5 entry. Maybe not winner overall, but maybe with the televote. Mi familia is a good song too, but it’s either too 10 or bottom 5. With a good performance, queried added could get top 10. Overall Arcadia is spains best choice IMO
