Spain: Nebulossa to Eurovision 2024 with "Zorra" after winning Benidorm

Nebulossa won Spain's Benidorm Fest 2024 and will represent Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 with the song "Zorra"

¡Ya está!

After another successful year of Spain's Benidorm Fest, the country has decided and it'll be Nebulossa who'll fly to Malmö in May with the song "Zorra" to represent the nation at Eurovision 2024.

Throughout the week, the Benidorm Fest spirit kept on growing in the city. Besides the usual billboards referencing the national selection contest, as well as the multiple LEDs spread out all over town, multiple activities related with the contest were also held such as daily press conferences, concerts, and many performances.

Blanca Paloma (Spain 2023), Senhit (San Marino 2011, 2021), and Rosa (Spain 2002) were a few of the ones who took the stage in Plaza Triangular to perform their Eurovision anthems. Moreover, former acts such as Sofia Martín (Benidorm Fest 2023) and Gonzalo Hermida (Benidorm Fest 2022) were also part of the city's attractions.

All of this, along with the two Semi-finals held during the week, culminated with tonight's Benidorm Fest 2024 Final, where the eight finalists performed one last time hoping for a chance to represent Spain in Eurovision. The Final was also held in Palau Municipal d'Esports l'Illa de Benidorm, that once more was completely sold out.

The voting format also remained the same with the jury vote being worth 50%, whereas the remaining 50% were divided in two between the demoscopic jury and the televote. Once all votes were in, it was clear that Nebulossa had won.

Ruth Lorenzo (Spain 2014) opened the show with her Eurovision song. She also hosted the Final with TV host Marc Calderó and journalist Ana Prada. Abraham Mateo performed as the interval act.


Nebulossa is a duo from Alicante consisting of Maria Bas and Mark Dasoura. They were founded in 2018 and sing mainly electro pop music.

Three years later after their beginning Nebulossa released their first album "Poliédrica de Mí," which gave the duo more hits and popularity in the country.

Even if the duo was only created a few years ago, Mark began his musical adventure 30 years ago as part of the indie rock band Píldora X. In recent years he's become a well-known music producer, and even founded the recording studio Atomic Studio.

In a recent press conference held for Benidorm Fest 2024, Mark admitted that going to Eurovision is a dream for Maria, and he's willing to make it come true.

The jury consisted of eight members: four Spanish judges plus four international juries: Carlos Baute, Ángela Carrasco, Guille Milkyway, Beatriz Luengo plus Lee Smithurst, David Tserunyan, Marta Piekarska, and Nicole Refsing.

Spain in Eurovision

Spain has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 62 times since their debut in 1961. They have won twice: in 1968 (La, La, La...) and the following year, 1969 (Vivo Cantando).

Spain is a member of the "Big-5," which means they don't have to go through the Semi-final round and are automatically qualified for the Grand Final. Spain is also a member of "club zero" because they have managed to get zero points 3 times. They have finished in last place 5 times in Eurovision history, the latest coming in 2017.

Spain's best-known song is probably "Eres Tú" from Eurovision 1973 (2nd place, only four points away from victory).
