A huge buenos noches from Spain, tonight we finally reached the end of Benidorm Fest 2023, and with that, we also know who we’ll see in the grand final in Liverpool!
Benidorm Fest ’23 – Final
Prior to the final, two semi-finals were held as well, each containing 9 songs competing for a spot in the final. With that, a total of 18 songs competed across the two semi-finals, but only 4 from each semi-final, could make it to tonight’s final.
With only a total of 8 songs left, one of them would be set to represent Spain in Liverpool, these 8 songs being as follows: (In order of performance)
- Karmento – “Quiero y Duelo”
- Megara – “Arcadia”
- Alice Wonder – “Yo Quisiera”
- Fusa Nocta – “Mí Familia”
- Agoney – “Quiero Arder”
- Blanca Paloma – “Eaea”
- José Otero – “Inviernos en Marte”
- Vicco – “Nochentera”
All 8 acts qualified to the final after being judged by a professional jury, a demoscopic jury and by the televote.
Just like it was with the two semi-finals, the professional jury, the demoscopic jury and the televote would once come together a final time, to decide who would be crowned the winner. The professional jury was given most power of the 3 groups, with 50& of the total outcome and the demoscopic jury and the televote each sharing 25%.
In the end, Blanca Paloma could claim herself as the victor after she finished first with both the televote and the professional jury, meanwhile she finished 2nd with the demoscopic jury.
Top 3 was as follow: (prof. jury + demos. jury + televote)
- Blanca Paloma (94+35+40) 169 points
- Agoney (80+30+35) 145 points
- Vicco (59+40+30) 129 points
Since Spain is part of the BIG 5, Blanca Paloma will not need to worry about qualifying from the semi-finals, and will be ready to impress Europe in the final on the 13th of May 2023.
