SPAIN – In a surprise twist BENIDORM FEST returned in Spain with CHANEL winning the national selection and the ticket to Turin. The jury voted for Chanel, the demoscopic jury also voted for Chanel. Although Tanxuguieras won the public voting nothing changed.
Serving the competition a double-threat of some top-notch choreography and hairography, few could argue that rising star Chanel didn’t do her utmost to bring her song to life on the Benidorm stage on Wednesday night’s first semi-final.
Between pelvic thrusts, neck flips and a surprise dance-break that would make any popstar from 2002 quake in their combat trousers, what Chanel delivered ensured that SloMo won its semi with a score that included top marks from the jury.
As a result, the song goes into Saturday night’s final as one of the favourites to win, a feat all the more impressive when you consider that it’s Chanel’s debut single.
But whatever happens on the night, it’s highly likely that her turn at Benidorm Fest will see to it that this newcomer will be sticking around for a while more to come.
