Spain: The detailed results of Benidorm Fest 2022 have been published!

The detailed results of Benidorm Fest 2022, the national final of Spain, were announced by RTVE a while ago. As you will see below, the winner, Chanel, gathered less than 4% of the public vote.

On the other hand, the entry that ended up in second place overall won the televoting, gathering 70.75% of the votes among 8 participants.

Widespread reactions have erupted in Spain, as Galician political parties have already stated that they will raise the issue in the House of Representatives. Tanxugueiras who won the public vote are from Galicia and sung a song in Galician.

Complaints about possible conflict of interest of the judges are also serious, as members of the jury seem to have worked in the past with Chanel, the winner of the jury and Benidorm Fest overall.

On the other hand, the Galician telecommunications provider Toxo Telecom seems to have contributed to the Tanxugueiras’ huge lead in the public vote, allowing its customers to vote for the Tanxugueiras once for free.
