Barei wins Objetivo Eurovisión 2016 and will represent Spain!

Barei will represent Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 with the song “Say Yay!” after winning both the televoting and the expert jury votes from Edurne, Loreen, and Carlos Marín in the Spanish selection show Objetivo Eurovisión!

 

Only song fully in English

Her song was the only one in the competition sung entirely in English (with a few Spanish lyrics in the backing vocals). She had previously defended her decision saying that singing an entry in English would make it sound more international.

Xuxo Jones came in second place, while Salvador Beltrán, who got the highest score of the international jury, came in third place. María Isabel, Maverik and Electric Nana came in fourth, fifth and sixth place respectively.
