Dennis Reviews Anita’s 21st Century Favourite
Pastora Soler – Quédate conmigo | 10th place, 97 points (Final)
This is a great choice. Not only do I, of course, adore the vocal power of Pastora Soler. There is always a lot of attention for that and that amazing long note. But overall, the song is also built-up perfectly to let Pastora excel in what she is good at. Very impactful and impressive Spanish entry, proving that this nation is able to come up with the goods. In other years they make it easy to forget that.
Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite
Barei – Say Yay! | 22nd place, 77 points (Final)
This is a lovely, catchy song. First time I saw Barei fall, I truly was shocked. What a great way to recapture your attention onto a track! Especially if you’ve had a few drinks while watching Eurovision, this was a great tool, kudos Spain! Should’ve done far better than it ended up doing and I agree that it’s one of Spain’s better entries of the 21st century.
