ME Gala 3: 5 more acts qualified

by Victor Hondal 108 views

Nash, Yanira Figueroa, Marta Llenas (selected via phone voting), along with Rebeca and Sheila Rodríguez (nominated by Massiel and Mikel Herzog) are joining the 10 acts already qualified for the next round on the Spanish preselection Misión Eurovisión. As usual, and after the show has finished, esctoday.com takes a look at the last 5 artists moving on to the semifinal, to be broadcast on February 6th.

The Spanish public broadcaster, TVE, has aired a great show tonight. The Misión Eurovisión 3rd heat started at 22:00 CET and finished at 1 o'clock. Within these three hours, the 15 songs initially confirmed as candidates to represent Spain this year were shorlisted toten as esctoday.com reported. And, as every week, five out of the 15 performers qualified for the next round. These are their names:

NASH
Nash rocked the stage. This short sentence resumes what happened tonight at Los Álamos (Madrid). 216 points confirmed them as the absolute champions at this 3rd Gala. These boy band, formed by Basti, Ony, Javi y Mikel, became famous last year, specially amongst the teenager public, with its debut album Capaz de todo. Nash, performing Stand by me, reached the top of the scoreboard since the beginning of the voting round. 12 of the 17 Spanish Autonomous Communities, plus the mobile phone calls, gave these guys the maximum votes: 12 points.

YANIRA FIGUEROA
With only 17 years old, Yanira, born in Alhaurín de la Torre (Málaga), showed her powerful vocal attributes tonight, getting a huge support from the public, that rewarded her 165 points and the runner-up position in the final chart. Yanira is not an unknown face in Spain: she won the contest Gente de Primera, aired in 2005. Extremadura and La Rioja gave her 12 points, and many other regions, 10 points.

MARTA LLENAS
Marta Llenas closed the running order in this Misión Eurovisión 3rd heat. This 30-year-old artist, born in Gerona, chose Proud Mary for her performance tonight. Would be better to say Proud Marta due to her fantastic interpretation, that earned 139 points coming from all the Spanish regions. Her highest votes were given by Castile-La Mancha and Madrid (10 points each).

REBECA
The most famous and well-known entrant was not the public's favourite competitor tonight. This Catalan singer was placed in 4th position with 125 points, not enough to be automatically qualified for the next round. Nevertheless, her musical experience and powerful performance were valorated by Massiel and Mikel Herzog, who rewarded her with the classification. Rebeca, who reached the fame in the 90s with her hit Duro de pelar, chose the theme she submitted to TVE last year in her attempt to represent Spain in Athens, Qué no daría yo.

SHEILA RODRÍGUEZ
7th at the final scoreboard and rescued by the jury. Sheila, who comes from Barcelona, chose a great theme for her performance tonight: Barbra Streisand's Woman in love. Although the public did not give her enough support, Massiel and Mikel Herzog considered that Sheila deserved to go through and qualify the next round. Sheila got 79 points in total, many of them coming from La Rioja and Catalonia (10 points each).

On the other hand, the Argentinian singer Lourdes Savarese closed the tonight's scoreboard with only 4 points. As well, unlucky were Luis Fierro (a well-known singer in the 70s), the vocal group Just 4 Voices or the duo made up by Cristina Conde (Anabel's younger sister) and Rafael Artesero (composer of the 2005 and 2006 Andorran entries, as well as La Reina de la Noche and Ley le lee, two of the 10 qualified songs tonight).
