In the end it couldn’t be. chanell came close to victory in Eurovision, but finally, the Spanish representative was third in the voting, only surpassed by another of this year’s favorites, the United Kingdom, and the winner of the contest, Ukraine. Still, the singer obtained the best result for Spain since 1995making history as the Spanish representative who has received the highest score since its inception, a triumph for our country, which had not raised its head at the festival for many years.
But beware, because it turns out that Eurovision is not the only contest that Chanel has faced these days, and it may have gone even better in this one. Spanish-Cuban singer stars in the new Netflix Spain promowhich, faithful to what has already become a tradition, brings us a Eurovision parody full of winks and cameos, just as it has done in other years with Paquita Salas as representative of Amaia and Alred, or ‘The televoting girls’, their first Eurovision video.
Just before the Eurovision final on Saturday May 14, the streaming service shared the video, titled ‘CHANEL was ready to play the game long before EUROVISION’, in which we see the artist participating in The Squid Game along with other faces of Spanish song that aspired to represent Spain at the festival, like Raúl, Melody, Xuso Jones, Sonia (of Sonia and Selena), Marta Sango and Mireia, eternal frustrated candidate. As in the famous Korean series, the contestants must overcome twisted tests and only one can be left standing. The winner will receive a “monetary” prize, hidden in a tit-shaped sphere (a clear nod to Rigoberta Bandini’s song, ‘Ay mama’).

“Over the years, many contestants were left at the gates of Eurovision and only one was ready to pass the game”Netflix says on its Twitter account. Inés Hernand, one of the presenters of the Benidorm Fest, acts as a hook: “The game you want, the one you want”, he tells Chanel as a mockery of her catchphrase. The singer manages to reach the end with Melody, but in the last test, the Eurovision representative 2022 prevails over the singer of ‘El baile del gorilla’ thanks to his superpower: the ‘SloMo’, outdoing his opponent with his slow-motion choreography during the confrontation. She, (almost) always first, never secondary.
The video ends with reference to the controversy over the Benidorm Fest voting, with a cameo by the journalist Xavi Martínez and the choreographer Miryam Benedited, who received harsh criticism for favoring Chanel over the public favorites, Tanxugueiras and Rigoberta Bandini. “It does not matter if there is no televoting, on Twitter they will say that it is silly”says Blessed. The funny campaign has been applauded on the Internet, where it does nothing but increase in visits and likes.
