Spain: Manel to Kiev after winning Objetivo Eurovisión

Manel Navarro will sing for Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kiev. He was victorious in the preselection Objetivo Eurovisión this Saturday with the song “Do it for your lover”.

Spain has had some mixed success in recent years at Eurovision, with top-10 results and some flukes. With a renewed format, broadcaster RTVE hopes to bring in a lot of points in May this year.

The show turned dramatic during the results as Manel Navarro and Mirela were joint first and while the crowd had chanted Mirela, the jury re-chosen Manel in a somewhat controversial result.
