The announcement raises some questions by the Eurovision fans, because Benidorm doesn’t have any direct connections with the contest. Rumor has it that the announcement has something to do with The Benidorm International Song Festival ( Or in Spanish Festival Internacional de la Canción de Benidorm). It was an annual song contest which used to take place each summer from 1959 till 2006 and was based on the well known San Remo festival. However, the contest never had a connection with the Eurovision Song Contest. Only thing we can do is wait for their announcement on the 22nd of July.
Spain was represented this year by Blas Cantó. After an online battle between two songs, it was determined that he would be performing “Voy A Quedarme” on the Eurovision Stage in Rotterdam. With his performance in the Grand Final on the 22nd of May, he finished 24th out of 26 acts with a total of 6 points.
