February 4, 2023



¡Vamos allá, la Blanca Paloma! Its time to learn how to clap to the rhythms of bulerías. Blanca Paloma has been proclaimed winner of the Benidorm Fest 2023 and her song “Eaea” will represent Spain at Eurovision 2023 in Liverpool. The jury and the public have agreed when choosing this incredible lullaby with a flamenco rhythm fused with electronic music and whose lyrics are a love poem. The podium has been completed by Agoney and Vicco.

The Benidorm Fest final has left everyone speechless. An incredible show in which we have once again enjoyed the eight finalist songs, in addition to the performances of the guest stars. For this grand finale, RTVE has invited Ana Mena, one of the most international artists in Spanish music today and who participated in Sanremo 2022. Manuel Carrasco, one of the most successful artists in Spanish music, has also participated. He participated in the second edition of Operación Triunfo and, consequently, was a candidate for Eurovision 2003. In addition, he is the Spanish artist who holds the record for the most massive concert by a solo artist in Spain.

But, without a doubt, the most exciting moment has been the vote. Two artists started out as favourites: Agoney with “Arde” and Blanca Paloma with “Eaea”. Finally, the result has been the following:

  1. Blanca Paloma – “Eaea”: 169 points.
