MAVERICK

Hair

It’s all about the Hair, about the HAIR, about the HAIR about the HAIR no Singing!

He is a Calvin Klein singer in the making from the tightness of those jeans! However I went CRINGE FEST with him taking the girl out of the audience! So not REHEARSED!

Hair 2

I’d enjoy this song on holidays with a few sangria on me! Not a winner one thinks!

 

BAREI

Barei live

She brought her “A game” and through Kurt Calleja dance moves! I hope she asked for permission of there will be a liable suit heading her way. Seriously this is the type of song we have been waiting for Spain to send to Eurovision so I can feel the sun on my head at the contest!

Kurt Dancing

XUSO JONES

Am sure Loreen heard that song as I am sure she rejected it in 2012 😉

 

SALVA

Always helps if the guy before you didn’t do so good vocally. Not a winner but moved up the rankings!

 

MARIA ISABEL

She’s all grown up since Junior Eurovision. Pleasant song but would probably get lost at Eurovision – sort of like Xuso’s voice earlier tonight. Maybe they could hang out together. Did you get her hidden message in the performance?

 

ELECTRIC NANA

Well that was a bunch of electric indie punk pop. Loved it! This contest is wide open!!!

 

OVERALL FEELING

 

Let’s keep it short and sweet!

The big guns failed to deliver for me. Xuso was out of key and his song sounds dated like his blue suit. Maria Isabel was good but was lacking something special for me!

Maverick is just beautiful to look at! Do I need to say more 🙂 He can sing but the song is for the bar when on the Costas!

Salva was the big surprise! His song was better live than in the studio version. Will do better than I thought originally. The song would not have a wide enough appeal at Eurovision to win even though I liked it.

That leaves serious #GirlPower with Barei and Electric Nana! These were by far the best of the night! Either one of them could challenge the Top 10 in Stockholm.

For me Barei just edges it for me and is my tip for the top!

VOTING

Vote 2

The votes are in and Barei WINS!!!

She will now go to Stockholm with the mega funky song ‘Say Yay’

The best song definitely won in the night. Best chance from Spain at a victory in a long time at Eurovision!

Adios
