There's a fantastic summary of what's going on with the Spanish submissions process below:

https://escxtra.com/2016/11/16/objetivo-eur...n-who-is-in-it/

Brequette is hoping to return after submitting 3 songs - collaborations with Barei. Ruth Lorenzo originally stated she would keep her word and attempt to return in 2017 although has since reportedly ruled herself out. Despite frequent poor results, Spain do what the UK can't do and pull together strong national finals with fairly high profile names - and as a result often have high quality entries until they are ruined by staging (2015, 2016) or vocals (2013).

I always look forward to the Spanish selection and 2017 will be no different!

I liked Barei, still don't know how she took low place. Hope next time Spain will be at least in top ten.

This is the beefed up version of Brequette's entry (first revamp of the 2017 klaxon!)



Big improvement on the really limp demo version I must say!

So, an update about the Spanish National Final. On Thursday there'll be a "Webcasting" Final where the winner will get a place in the Actual NF which'll take place in February. The fan favorite (and this is Spain, so the fan favorite has a better chance here than in most other countries) is this work of lyrical genius.



(Barei was eliminated in the penultimate round and the other two are far worse)

The five other acts in the lineup will be announced live during the Webcasting Final but a leaky-leak posits that it'll be these five

Maika Barbero
Manel Navarro
Mario Jefferson
Mirela
Paula Rojo


Most of them are of varying degrees of unfamous, Mirela is most known for trying her luck in previous NFs in 2007 and 2009, of which this camp classic is her most fan favored


And on the flipside, Manuel Navarro is pretty much entirely a newcomer but has record label backing and importantly, for the FransFans of the world, he has terrible hair.

(that song predates the September 1st deadline but it's pretty indicative of what we should expect)

Oh I actually discovered Manel a few days ago funnily enough laugh.gif I really quite like Candle although there's room for improvement. He has a new single out on Friday anyway which seems like good timing!

(oh and he has fab hair, go away Lex xx)

And LeKlein has won her(?) place in the final six. Knowing how wildcards do in these kind of things...there's surely a chance right!

The other five are exactly as rumored and a small snippet of all of them can be heard here:

I've listened to Manel's Eurovision song (it's on his VEVO now) and it's great! Definitely reminds me of various Colbie Caillat songs with its summery guitar vibes. It'd finally be something a bit different for Spain too and it's the sort of thing that could go top 10, thinking Roman Lob or Tom Dice.

From the snippets Mirela stood out but I do think Spain need something different to female power pop.

Yeah I'm really loving the Manel song right now, an improvement on Candle too! Really like the laidback pop vibes heart.gif

I remain unimpressed. At this point I'm honestly expecting LeKlein to win for teh lolz.

'Spin My Head' sounds like the classic Eurovision bop I LIVE for.

Still can't get into 'Ouch!'. I'm not sure if it's the chorus putting me off, or the fact she looks like Celine Dion and Jedward's love child.

I wish to retract this previous statement as the full song is so utterly lukewarm.

I was and still probably am expecting LeKlein to carry her momentum and win Elaiza style, however apparently in Spain it is considered that it is going to be a Manel vs Mirela showdown.

I read somewhere a while ago something along the lines of "The Spanish Eurovision fanbase is now so active and so relatively large that their favourite will be unbeatable in a televote every time". At the moment this bodes well for Mirela! Although I see a jury favouring Manel. LeKlein will probably do decently in both and may be the compromise winner.

I mean Barei did manage to win from 2nd as the 'underdog' last year so I guess LeKlein isn't dead per se but yeah, that does seem to be favoring Mirela the most.
