If Fusa can improve her live vocal she deserve to win. But idk watching her live on Semi Final she is kinda sounds like screaming.
So now the Spanish fandom is being extremely toxic and rude to Agoney on social media. It was to be expected.
So now the Spanish fandom is being extremely toxic and rude to Blanca Paloma on social media…
I mean I dont think that is true and i dont think what you wrote is true either but It is soooo easy to write this kind of comments.
Rudeness and toxicity was what Chanel had to live through last year.
By reading comments here, and on YouTube, and seeing the views, I see that Spain will likely make a mistake comparable to Norway when they sent Tix instead of Keiino, which would arguably win that year. I understand the appeal of Blanca because it is a traditional song and Spain didn’t send a similar song for a while, if ever. Well, they didn’t send a rock song ever as well. If we want to be real, it actually isn’t a great performance. It is all in the voice, and it wasn’t perfect. It was good, but these acts have to… Read more »
The Liverpool lineup is in desperate need of some quality, please let it be Blanca. Singing words of wisdom, let it be…
bianca or karmento please.
2 stunning stage performances and something what i connect with spain culture.
For me it’s either Alice Wonder, Blanca Paloma or Megara. Fusa was my fav but he can keep up with the song. Agoney is good too but I don’t see “Quiero arder” as interesting as the others.
She can’t keep up* (I need the edit button back)
Blanca Paloma was spectacular! The best vocals we’ve heard this season so far and probably gonna stay that way. The staging, the styling and the choreo are great, it’s just the lighting and a few camera shots that need a bit of tweaking.
I’m completely mesmerized and I can’t stop watching that performance!
I’m totally down with the results of the semi-finals. After seeing Alfred’s show, I can’t fully support any of the finalists. He was amazing and didn’t qualify. I choose Karmento for her quality but I don’t really like her song.
between the two main faves, definitely go with Agoney.
3. Blanca Paloma
Only Megara can bring a really good result, I think staging needs work though. Arcadia is my absolute favourite, my second is Fusa Nocta <3
Blanca’s song is too shouty for my personal taste.
Had lots of favorites last year Benidorm, nothing really stands out to me this year.
Megara should represent Spain
In any case, please don’t send the man from Israel that now wants to try for Spain burning …
3. Blanca Paloma
Spain is sure to get atleast top 5 at Eurovision this year whether they choose Agoney or Blanca! I prefer Quiero Arder in comparison to Eaea, but there is no doubt that Blanca has a phenomenal voice. Well done Spain
Megara is the best of them all far better vocals, performance and song. Unfortunately Spain won’t send it but it deserves to win.
Spanish fans really try to sell Paloma to the rest of us, huh? Every year the same. The song is a mess, it has no clear melody or musicality. It’s much too shouty as well, I really loved her last song Secreto de agua. That was amazing, this song… hmm not so much. But’s that’s just my opinion, if the Spanish love her that much and vote for her, then she’s the right choice I guess. Just don’t expect high placements. We’ve seen how France failed last year and Conan Osiris few years back. These types of songs don’t go… Read more »
We try to sell you..? Actually we dont give half a shhhh about you. We like It, her song is part of us… Who were you again?
See? I just said my personal opinion and the first thing you do is attack and put people down. That’s so sad.. you people are so toxic.
And i wrote my personal opinion about your comment. Where is the difference?
And i am not “you people” btw, i am just me.
can people stop comparing her to france 2022 and portugal 2019 for fuxx’s sake
I just randomly listend to all 8 songs for the very first time and as an international voter who has no idea about the artists the only interesting songs for me were
2.Inviernos en Marte
All the other songs seem totally bland and boring. The song Quiero y duelo was very bad – almost annoying.
As an “international” voter when you are from Albacete…
Really, I will be happy if Blanca Paloma, Agoney, Karmento or Megara win… Four great acts. I wish I could have said that many times in my life before, but sadly I could not. We Spaniards have to realise what a big improvement we had in the last two years and just be happy about that.
Tú eres española tía?? Pues BP cari. Agoney es medio el israelí del año pasado y cuando habla es pffff. Tú votas a Blanca y yo voto a Agoney si no habla, deal?
Estoy muy borracho cari
Ya veo! Jajaja
Let me just say: what a lineup! This is truly a highlight of the national final season!
The two upbeat songs from Fusa Nocta and Agoney had some tired choreography that doesn’t come close to being as tight as Chanel’s SloMo. I voted for the two ballads and Megara.
Blanca Paloma, Agoney, and Megara are my favorites.
I just don’t get either Agoney or Blanca’s songs; they left me completely cold. I think my favourite out of this kinda meh bunch is Vicco.
FOR REAL ! Ok both Agoney and Bianca can sing really well, but their songs aren’t that tremendous. Imo if one of them win (wich I think is gonna happen), Spain won’t reach the top 10.
Vicco’s song is very catchy and gets in your head, but it is a radio song. Or a party/disco song. I just don’t think it is suitable for Eurovision. Blanca Paloma brings some cultural realness and that’s what Eurovision is all about. Or Megara with the unusual combination of rock and Spanish. I don’t know how you can see the diversity in genres we have in the final as a “meh bunch”
Coming here to see how some spanish eurofans will try to sell Blanca Paloma as the 8th wonder of the world and I’m not disappointed, she is a great performer for sure but she wouldn’t be my choice, Karmento, Megara, Vicco are my favs here.
The same eurofans ignoring her and putting her in the last place of their rankings 2 days ago, this hypocrisy and this opportunism is something I will never understand.
Hipocrisy and oportunism? It is just being convinced and mesmerize by a performance… It happens a lot at Eurovision, and the opposite too
i really want agoney to win. chanel did amazing with juries last year and i think so would agoney. improv the choreo a bit, and it’s a visually spectacular performance. paired with outstanding vocals. juries would def honor that. and i dont think there’s any doubt he would do well with televotes. blanca’s song is nothing i’d ever listen to, i’d actively skip it in any eurovision playlist. sure, she delivers powervocals, but that doesn’t make the song better, and i HIGHLY doubt that at eurovision televoters would pick up the phone for her. agoney is the much better, and… Read more »
Not really the “only” choice. There are 8
I absolutely agree… Idk where all the hype for Blanca is coming from… Yes, her vocals are outstanding, but the song is just not good. If they send her, they’ll just end up in the bottom 5 again. On the other hand, Agoney is a full package. His song is good, vocals are more than great and the stage performance is very good too. He could really do well at Eurovision. Unlike Blanca, he could actually get a decent amount of televoting points and a decent placing (on the left side of the chart of course).
Send Blanca, less competition for Noa. Agoney is too good.
100% Blanca Paloma – she’s grown so much since last year and this performance is perfect – Eurovision ready!
Who ever wins I expect there to be drama cause if one thing is consistent with Spain it is drama.
Remember last year when they drove Chanel to delete her Twitter because of the
They’re doing it to agoney again. And then they complain why certain artists dont wanna go to benidorm fest.
The running order drawn randomly.
Blanca is high risk, high reward. Spain has to go for it.
Vicco closing again? That’s odd, and unfair.
Why do you enable the option to vote for multiple entries at the same time in these polls. It should just be one entry per vote, since only one song will win.
Said it before: the winner must be Blanca Paloma. I’d rank them Blanca Paloma – Megara – Karmento (maybe being her the winner of public or demoscopic vote) – Vicco – Alice Wonder – Agoney – Fusa Nocta – Jose Otero
Who should win Bebidorm Fest? The options are:
Aaaaand of course, Blanca Paloma
For me Blanca Paloma !!
Agoney its good but if he wins, I won’t be angry but a little disappointed all the same…
It’s going to be tight with Blanca!
My final pronostic :
1. Blanca Paloma
5. Alice Wonder
7. Fusa Nocta
8. José Otero
Good Luck beautiful spanish artists ! Vamos !
EaEa by a mile!!! Me eriza el pelo siempre cuando escucho su voz, es la candidata perfecta para Liverpool.
I think Blanca Paloma is the better choice for Spain, has huge potential to score high in the jury vote at Eurovision.
Agoney and Blanca in a row? Unless the RO was drawn randomly, this is an interesting choice.
But they do contrast because they’re different songs, so that could work in their favor.
By the way, well done RTVE. Benidorm is becoming the favourite national final of the season for a second year in a row. It’s a shame they can’t host the show in a bigger venue though. I’ll def consider attending next year.
Blanca por favor. This is a special entry and it will stand out in Liverpool.
I think Agoney could win the televoting but if Blanca comes 2nd, she can win as she will get a big jury support like last night.
4 Fusa Nocta
5 Alice Wonder
1. Fusa Nocta
2. Blanca Paloma
3. Jose Otero
7. Alice Wonder
But all of them are within my top ten of all 18 Benidorm Fest songs (with Siderland and Alfred Garcia), so we are talking about good acts here.
From what I’ve seen, I think Blanca will win tomorrow.
Personal favourites are Blanca Paloma and Agoney, but I am more inclined towards Blanca for the win.
Karmento, Megara or Fusa Nocta!
Song-wise, Fusa Nocta, Blanca Paloma or maybe Jose Otero. As a whole package, performance included, Blanca is in her own league, and should win. No matter which song they pick, Spain’s going to be higher on my list than any of the three already selected songs. All 8 finalists + Alfred and Siderland eclipse all 3 ESC songs we have so far. Long live Benidorm Fest!
Jose has a very dull song, which is not the right one for Eurovision.
The downfall of Fusa Nocta is upsetting, she had so much potential with her song and the staging possibilities were endless. I even thought she’d win Eurovision, but it’s too late, the damage is done from her semi and I doubt she’ll even place top 4 on Saturday.
On a brighter note, we also witnessed the rise of Blanca Paloma. Eaea was dead last in Spotify streams out of all the BeFest acts before live performances, but now she’s the favorite to win. Performance matters just as much as the song at Eurovision, this is proof.
Just as Chanel was written off before the performances. Nothing matters until they get on that stage.
Megara, potential winner.
If the semis are any indication it’s coming down to Agoney or Blanca Paloma. And we’ll be better off with Blanca out of those two.
