SPAIN – Benidorm Fest is gearing up and next week Spain will glorify its choice for the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest. But there are a lot of issues discussed. The latest is the case of Luna Ki who’s out of the race.
Luna Ki informed RTVE a few hours ago that she will not be attending Benidorm Fest. Her decision to withdraw was motivated by the rules prohibiting her from using autotune in her performance. Tomorrow RTVE will give a special press conference on the issue.
Luna Ki stated that autotune is an essential part of her song and that she cannot perform it without it. The press release states, among other things, that Luna feels responsible for the Benidorm Fest audience, the remaining artists, and RTVE, and that she will explain her decision to withdraw in detail.

THE INVITATIONS MESS
Following the invitation distribution to the fans and institutions, there were a lot of reactions. 500 invitations were given to the two fan clubs of Spain but several local sites complained that the company which managed the invitation distribution kept a lot more for the city of Benidorm. RTVE issued 130 (for all shows) extra invitations which will be given by a draw via the broadcaster’s website.
THE PRIVATE PARTY
A few days before the first semifinal of the Benidorm Festival begins next Tuesday, a photograph has been released that has enraged many followers. While other participants in the pre-selection took precautions to avoid infection, Azúcar Moreno and Marta Sango were observed in a mass celebration with no precautions.
Marta Sango was spotted at Javier Calvo’s birthday celebration in a Madrid bar, sparking outrage on social media. It shows the Salazar sisters performing Postureo, their entry for Eurovision 2022, in addition to their hits.
The photographs show a large number of guests attending the party without social distance or masks. Some individuals participating in their social networks claim they had an antigen test before.
Among the familiar figures were Paco León, Brays Efe, Veneno actress Lola Rodriguez, journalist Valeria Vegas, Arturo Valls, and Eduardo Casanova, among others. Many. Marta Sango’s and the sisters’ actions may jeopardize her pre-selection participation.
There would be no time to isolate themselves if an unexpected positive occurred in Covid. Seeing these sights, many followers have cried out in heaven, realizing their participation in the Benidorm Festival is in danger.
Matt, a member of the boy band Unique, confirmed his positive for Covid-19 in early January. As a result of this, the organization has a plan in case any artists cannot perform, as happened in the past Eurovision Song Contest.
There was also a controversy surrounding the Azúcar Moreno prior to their appearance at the Benidorm Fest. The applicants all have a WhatsApp group and chat with each other, Rayden, another participant, learned in an interview on the SER chain.
