Luna Ki withdraws from Benidorm Fest as their song "Voy a morir" is not eligible to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest. The is because their song features the use of autotune.

It's release day for the Spanish Eurovision fans as RTVE – Spain's public broadcaster – has released the 14 songs competing at Benidorm Fest.

Shortly after Eurovision 2021 came to an end, the Spanish broadcaster promised changes to their selection process after so many weak results in the world's biggest musical competition.

With that being said, the Benidorm Fest was announced as the new selection process and just two weeks after the artists were revealed, the songs are now out.

Spain in Eurovision Song Contest

Spain has participated in Eurovision Song Contest 60 times since its debut in 1961. They have won twice, in 1968 (La, La, La...) and the folowing year, 1969 (Vivo Cantando).

Spain is a member of "Big-5", and therefore don't have to qualify for the Grand Final. Spain is also a member of the "club zero", because they have managed to get zero points 3 times. They have ended last 5 times in Eurovision history, latest in 2017.

Best known song for Spain is probably the song "Eres Tú" from Eurovision 1973 (2nd place, only four points from victory).
