We’ve watched live the Final fo Benidorm Fest, and Spain’s got a winner, baby: Chanel.
It’s time to say that Spain was finally fed up of getting 0 points at Eurovision Song Contest, and this year, thanks to the edition of Benidorm Fest, the selection – very hard to be honest – declared that Chanel will represent Spain with her latino.dance-pop song “SloMo” at Eurovision 2022 in Turin.
We really have to be happy for such a victory, where we can finally see Spain coming back to the contest with an artist that screams “babe, I’m competition for all of you”!
Chanel won Benidorm Fest being elected first by the judges on site, and was second both for the opinion poll and the audience who televoted, that on the other hand, had Tanxugueiras as winners.
Nothing to be done for the Galician Group who – according to me – had the most unique song of all the others in the competition, a song in their own language, representing a part of Spain that never had the chance to be represented at Eurovision Song Contest, and that was shouting out loud a message of welcome and opening.
Were they robbed? Possibly.
Was their second place a political statement of the professional jury at Benidorm Fest? We can’t know.
What matters now is that Chanel – that in too many things brought us back in memory to Eurovision in Lisbon 2018 with Eleni Fureira singing (and dancing) “Fuego” – will surely make Spain proud on that stage in Turin, and will make us all dance and scream for some more slomo!
And now, let’s sing along with Chanel and her SloMo, and let’s all get ready for Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin. Keep on interacting on social medias using the hashtags #Titina22 and #Esc2022!
Here you have the lyrics for “SloMo” by Chanel.
Let’s go! Llegó la mami
La reina, la dura, una Bugatti
El mundo está loco con este party
Si tengo un problema, no es monetary.
Yo vuelvo loquito’ a todos los daddies
Yo siempre primera, nunca secondary
Apenas hago doom, doom
Con mi boom, boom
Y le tengo dando zoom, zoom
Y no se confundan
Señora’ y señore’
Yo siempre ‘toy ready
Pa’ romper cadera’, romper corazones
Solo existe una
No hay imitaciones (Na, na)
Y si aún no me crees, pues me toca mostrárselo
Take a video
Watch it slo mo, mo, mo, mo, mo
Make you want more, more, more, more, more
Voy a bajarlo hasta el suelo, lo, lo, lo, lo (Yeah)
If you wish, you could do this dembow (Do this dembow)
