The Spanish portal eurovision-spain.com has completed an internal vote with the Spanish fans’ favorites as the country’s entrant next year in Stockholm. The three top choices are men solo artists. Other names can be read in the list, too.

The three top artists in the vote held by eurovision-spain.com to shortlist the best choices for the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 are Pablo López, Xuso Jones and Álvaro Soler. The band Mago de Öz and the singer Virginia Maestro also show up among the possible choices.

Pablo López is the fan’s favorite. We learned from the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia of the short reply that the artist posted on Twitter (Thank you very much, really) when replying to one of his followers who asked about the result of the vote.

Pablo López has released his second studio album El mundo y los amantes inocentes. In an interview for eurovision-spain.com the artist stated that representing Spain is a risky responsibility, and was I to go, I’d do it with no playback, no fireworks, just music.

The vote’s runner-up Xuso Jones has clearly claimed that he feels fully ready to represent Spain and to start working in a project with no improvisation, with plenty of preparation and work to build up the perfect entry.

Álvaro Soler ended third in the voting. He stepped into fame with his song featuring Jennifer López, El mismo sol. To eurovision-spain.com he said that he has not given a thought to participating in the Eurovision Song Contest, but you never know. It would be great too to participate as a song’s author for another artist.

This is the choice of the fans, and no official statement or announcement has been made by the Spanish broadcaster TVE so far.

Spain have been very consistent with great entries since 2011 (a shame the ESDM girl couldn't sing live for shit) so I have HIGH HOPES for next year.

Edurne was fucking robbed of a top 10 place though! Her song, her perf, her dancer!

I read on ESC Nation that "according to the website Bluper (they leaked the Edurne rumour last year), Mago de Öz are one of the candidates and it seems that TVE is willing to accept as they have a record label behind them".

They seem to be a rock band! no.gif

Apparently TVE are announcing their plans today with the most likely outcome being a national final along the lines of 2014, with potential participants including Xuso Jones with a Swedish-produced song and María Isabel - the winner of the 2004 Junior Eurovision contest (the one where Cory Spedding finished 2nd for the UK! heart.gif).

Not sure if María still has any popularity in Spain, but her latest single is decent! Wikipedia tells me it's her first proper single in a few years, but in the 2000s she had 4 top 5 albums (3 of which were #1) in Spain on the back of her Eurovision win.

QUOTE
Xuso Jones: "Very international", "something new, uptempo, hard-hitting and original". Songwriters, Andreas Öhrn and Peter Boström.
Salvador Beltrán: "full of optimism, shows Europe the cheerful spirit of Spaniards". Songwriters, Salvador Beltrán and Miguel Ángel Arenas "Capi".
Maverick: Danceable, electro-latino. Songwriters, Juan Magán, Darlyn Cuevas "DCS" and Luiggi Giussepe Olivares.
María Isabel: "Very danceable, very fresh", Songwriter: David Santisteban.
Electric Nana: Indie pop, "if my song was a person you would hang out with it".
Barei: "Pop song of electronic base and very contemporary". Songwriters, Barei, Rubén Villanueva and Víctor Púa Vivó.


Xuso is considered the clear favourite being the most well-known name and having the Swedish-written song. He looks very similar to Eric Saade too! Looks like every song in this final is mid-tempo to up-tempo, Xuso, María and Electric Nana's descriptions have me most excited. Maríá's song is written by the same guy who wrote the song I posted a few posts ago so that's promising!

Xuso's sounds like it's from the MF reject pile's own reject pile.

Maria Isabel is the only one of those that stands out to me.

Ooh pleased that María is going with that song, would love her to win and I think she must have a chance. Xuso does sound very Melodifestivalen, quite David Lindgren actually, interested to hear the full thing. Haven't listened to the rest yet so will probably wait for the full versions tomorrow!

I'm going to watch the live webcast of the songs reveal in half an hour as I'm not going to be around on that Monday night! So this will have to be the equivalent to the national final for me. I already know Maria's song in full of course, but most excited to listen to Xuso and Barei's songs in full out of the others.

Salvador and Maverick's songs are typical Latin songs so they are both nice yet unspectacular. Barei and Electric Nana have modern pop songs, Electric Nana reminds some of early Veronicas with her song looking at comments. That said I'm not sure I can see Spain picking such un-Spanish songs.

Xuso is exactly as you'd expect, very good, very Swedish, nearly entirely in English though. And then we have Maria who is the strongest for me, but has had the benefits of many listens.

I'd expect a race between Xuso and Maria as we expected when the names first came out, hopefully the two typical Latin songs cancel each other out.

All the songs are here: http://www.rtve.es/television/eurovision/

Xuso is the 'BUY IN A SWEDE' trend at its MOST REDUCTIVE
