The Wiwi Jury — our in-house team of music unprofessionals — is reviewing and rating the 37 competing songs in Eurovision 2024. Next we review Spain, who have chosen Nebulossa with “ZORRA”.

Were we won over by the duo? Read on to find out!

Nebulossa – “ZORRA” (Spain Eurovision 2024)

Review: Nebulossa – “ZORRA”

William: “ZORRA” isn’t a song — it’s a statement. Nebulossa shout that we all have worth no matter our age — and they do so with panache and positivity. Maria’s vocals aren’t the best, but that’s part of the point: You have to slay on your own terms and do what makes you happy. And if that means including male dancers in high heels and assless chaps then so be it! This song touches the heart and deserves all the points it is sure to get. 

Score: 8

Scarlett: I know “ZORRA” has a strong message, but the melody itself doesn’t live up to the strength of the lyrics. María is a fun performer that gets the audience chanting, but I worry that her vocals may not hold up in a live performance. The ’80s-style synths are fun. However, they feel overdone and threaten to swallow up the vocals. 

Score: 4

Tom: Sexy, sultry and addictive. For me, “ZORRA” comes alive on stage and is catnip for Euro fans. This might be the song that the whole crowd will be singing the loudest to in the arena — Nebulossa will have them in the palm of their hands. As a whole, the song isn’t mind blowing and I am not convinced the juries will go crazy for it. But, I think that the naughty nature of the song will be enough to beat last year’s 17th place. The Eurovision 2024 mother has arrived.

Score: 7.5

Sebastian: What a journey I’ve gone through with this song. Completely dismissing it upon its release as a poor man’s Fangoria (a very popular band in Spain), I have completely come around to borderline obsession with it. What I truly underappreciated is the superb production that pervades the song — its instrumental is a beauty to listen to. Yes, Mery Bas’ vocals are weak. But given the song’s well-documented theme of owning your sluttiness, she sells it. “ZORRA” could go either way — completely bomb in the bottom five, or ride a wave into the top 10. The unpredictability is so alluring, and I can’t wait to witness the adventure it takes.

Score: 8

Some fun related trivia (which we can add to):

The word “Zorro” in English is most commonly associated with the fictional character of Zorro that was created by American writer Johnston McCulley. So if someone were to say “Zorra” to me in English, I might think they were referring to a female vigilante wearing a mask. (Actually that’s a really good idea for a movie. Someone should make that.)

Alternatively, “Zora” is the name of the AI ship’s computer in “Star Trek: Discovery,” which is set in the far future. ?

I think the charm of this song will be completely missed on voters because they don’t understand the Spanish. A big part of the song is owning the word “zorra”, but no one outside Spain will get it. I personally only hear poor vocals and an average melody.

I love everything about this. The synthpop, throwback to the 80’s, the melody, a woman in her 50’s unapologetically saying she’s a zorra.

I am Spanish and I have gone from hating this song to just ignoring It. This one and the possibility that Switzerland wins the contest has made me loose all interest in Eurovision this year and I dont see myself watching the show on May. I think this year most songs belong to two categories: the Cha cha Cha wannabe or the Chanel Slomo routine wannabe. There is not a single song that feels interesting, Creative or original to me.

Admittedly the contest is called Eurovision and not Euroaudio. Visually the performance is great, the singer has pizzazz and so do the 2 sexy male dancers. Yet the song is nothing special and the « singer » can’t sing. That last keynote of hers is atrociously off-tune. The juries will slaughter her important though the message of the song might be

FINALLY Spain got THEIR song to Eurovision! In 2022 it was «Ay mama» and then in 2023 it was «Nochentera», but both failed to win Benidorm. But finally they got the song that also becomes a national hit to Eurovision with «Zorra». It is kinda like a car crash live, just like the other 2 forementioned songs, but the song is just still soooo good!!!

You know, I’m Spanish and maybe I’m a bit biased, but I think “Zorra” has one of the most memorable hooks of the edition. It’s also very catchy and uplifting. The synth riff will hypnotized you and you will end up shouting “Zorra” before you finish the song for th first time, even though you don’t know what it means. We are all aware the vocals are the con in this entry but Eurovision has proven, for the worse or for the better that that doesn’t matter the most. I think they need to find a proper staging and clothing… Read more »

This is how I know this is a good year for ESC songs: There are so many songs that are awesome to play when I interpret them on piano. Spain’s entry is a stand-out example of this. All of the riffs, the syncopations, the melodies, the harmonies…. they all happen very naturally over the keys. I just love playing this song. It reminds me of my early jamming days. 🙂 There is nothing really remarkable about the structure of this song or its chord sequences, so instead I’m going to swiftly move onto this song’s unique selling point (USP): its… Read more »

If the song really succeeds in reclaiming a word in the Spanish language, then that’s an incredible achievement and should probably be rewarded with a lot of jury points. At the same time, it would also be a very sad moment for Spain’s society to effectively acknowledge how outdated their use of language is. (I warned in an earlier post that my opinions on Spain were spicy.)

Ah yes, of course. That Meredith Brooks song got a lot of radio plays in the UK in the late 90s. Actually I didn’t know at the time that it was supposed to be sending a wider – I just thought Meredith was singing about her own life. Madonna’s “Human Nature” was from Bedtime Stories. I don’t remember much about the meaning of that one either, besides that it was Madonna being iconic as always. I suppose it is my failing that I rather missed the point of these songs.

“How outdated their use of language is”. What? Since when “b*tch” in English means something different to what it means in Spanish? Sexism is real and kicking in all European countries, it is not a thing that only exists in Spain. Feminicides are higher in the UK, France, Italy or Germany than they are in Spain, for example. And no, the foreign-born population card does not stand, since a quick check on foreign-born people in all those countries shows very similar numbers.

A reclaiming of a word which real translation cannot be written in here. In a world where you cannot write simple words because someone might get offended, where on websites like this one you must use numbers in between letters so that some common words are accepted… But then re-claiming a word that IS an insult and usually used in violent situations IS so amazing. This IS hipocrisy

I won’t deny that this song has charm, and the message behind it has a good concept on paper, but I question whether the viewers who aren’t really part of the LGBTQ+ community will bond with it like a big part of the fandom has. I myself find this song pretty alright, though unremarkable throughout the most of its runtime. Whenever I seek out to listen to the 2024 songs, I barely ever take my time to pick Zorra specifically.

This song translates so PERFECTLY to the what many gay people experienced through their lives, when being called f**** and publicly shamed for who they are through obnoxious jokes, hand gestures, physical attacks, provocative actions etc……. It’s not a song about women who like sex. It’s about anyone who’s freedom is subjected so other people’s judgement.

That makes sense. I don’t need necessarily need sultry, perhaps it was the wrong term. I also don’t see a seduction effort in this song but I don’t like the lackluster either. I guess the weak vocals and the music are just not doing it for me. The message is the only thing I’m behind here and it turns out that doesn’t matter much either when the rest is not on par. Usually it’s the message I’m missing. If we mix the lyrics of Zorra with the music of Teresa and Maria, that’s a song I’d like.

Back during Benidorm Fest, this song wasn’t even on my radar, but just watching the performance you could just tell this was going to win – everyone in the arena was singing along, and for me it was electric. Love the vibe and Maria’s voice works for this. It’s a song much like Finland last year, where I don’t mind the vocals being rough around the edges. Another great entry from Spain. Vamos! 8/10

19TH PLACE: SPAIN: I started out disliking this song but gradually I found some charm in it. The 80s synth sound is something I usually enjoy and the song is all in all fun and uplifting, albeit nothing more than that. The staging at Benidorm was not good in my opinion though and for the contest I think they must try to emulate the music video more, so that it’s both more aesthetic and helps to convey the message of the song better to the audience.

SPAIN – For a third year in a row, Benidorm Fest has proven to be a strong selection. Each edition had several entries I personally fell in love with. This year, we had a surprising winner in Nebulossa and their 80s-inspired feminist anthem Zorra. Last year, they didn’t qualify from the UVpSM semis. This year, they are representing Spain.  The song itself is a somewhat catchy synthpop that builds on verses with distinct pauses, and delivers a chorus that’s easy to sing along to. The main hook his the post-chorus which chants the taboo word that will make its debut… Read more »

1 (ONE) competitive entry in a decade (Chanel) isn’t enough. They need to try harder. It’s Spain, they could potentially be top 10 every year, they just refuse to accomodate the international public. They can be proud of their entries but they also can’t complain about abysmal results.
