Spain: Benidorm Fest 2023 participants announced!

Just a few minutes ago, through RTVE’s ten-minute special, the names of the shortlisted artists who will be part of Benidorm Fest 2023 and will compete to represent Spain in Liverpool next May were made public.

As we had informed you, the scheduled date for the announcement of the artists would take place, unless something unexpected happened, on Saturday 29 October. However, Spanish TV has decided – and after a storm of reactions on Twitter earlier today – to present the shortlist tonight in order to avoid any unwanted leaks.

The surprises, of course, do not stop here as the announcement concerned 18 names and not 16 as RTVE had stated earlier! According to them, this was because “the quality and level of the tracks submitted exceeded all expectations” and so they wanted to give the opportunity to two more compositions to compete.

Thus, the 18 names announced tonight that will fight for the Eurovision 2023 ticket are the following:
