Spain continues to gather pace in its preparations for Benidorm Fest 2023. As the artists gear up for the semi-finals at the end of the month, Tim speaks to E’FEMME. They are vying to represent Spain in Liverpool with their song “UFF!”.
Check out our interview with E’FEMME here!
During their interview, E’FEMME and Tim talked about E’FEMME’s participation in Benidorm Fest, their earliest memories of Eurovision (which includes some Junior Eurovision entries), as well as what we could expect from their performance in Benidorm.
E’FEMME consists of Lottie, Sandy, Bubu and Melania, and was formed in 2021. Since their formation, they have released five singles under their belt. Their Benidorm Fest 2023 entry “UFF!” was written by the group, alongside Antonio Escobar and Spain’s Eurovision 2016 representative Barei.
Spain’s Eurovision journey
Spain debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1961 with Conchita Bautista’s “Estando Contigo”. The country earned its first win in 1968 with Massiel’s “La La La”, and won again in 1969 with Salome’s “Vivo Cantando” in an infamous four-way tie. Although they have yet to win again, Spain earned several 2nd place finishes, most famously with Mocedades’ “Eres tu” in 1973 and Anabel Conde’s “Vuelve conmigo” in 1996.
Spain has been less successful in recent years. Although they achieved two 10th place finishes in 2012 and 2014, the country has not finished above 20th place since 2015, including one last-place in 2017. This poor running streak was broken, however in 2022, when Chanel finished in 3rd place with 459 points from the jury and televoters with her song “SloMo”.
