RTVE releases full breakdown of televote results for Benidorm Fest 2023

Following last night’s Grand Final of Benidorm Fest 2023 in Spain, this afternoon, RTVE released the in-full numbers of votes each act received. The show was won by Blanca Paloma, whose New Flamenco track Eaea romped to the top of the standings with 169 combined points, earning the performer from Alicante the Spanish ticket to Liverpool in May.

In total, 34,997 votes were cast via phone and text on Saturday. Although this was a fraction of the 192,000+ votes received at last year’s final, it was more than triple the 10,285 votes received in the first semi-final on Tuesday, and the 11,224 on Thursday. Executive supervisor María Eizaguirre did comment on Wednesday’s press conference for RTVE that an app vote “may need to be introduced” for the next edition.

The votes in full are as follows:

  1. Blanca Paloma – Eaea (9,898 / 28.3%)
  2. Agoney – Quiero arder (9,515 / 27.2%)
  3. Vicco – Nochentera (6,030 / 17.2%)
  4. Megara – Arcadia (2,908 / 8.3%)
  5. Karmento – Quiero y duelo (2,371 / 6.8%)
  6. Fusa Nocta – Mi familia (1,755 / 5%)
  7. Alice Wonder – Yo quisiera (1,543 / 4.4%)
  8. José Otero – Inviernos en Marte (977 / 2.8%)

As we can see, despite Blanca’s comfortable overall win, just under 400 votes separated the top two with the public. This contributed to 25% of the final points total, with 50% being decided by the in-house professional jury and 25% by the ‘demoscopic’ jury, an independent panel of 300 members representing a cross-section of Spanish society. Their points totals are yet to be revealed.

The final brought in an overnight volume of 1.9 million and a share of 14.7%, easily beating its competition across the major Spanish channels, and nearly doubling the overnight volume of the two semi-finals, which both brought in just over 1 million. However, it failed to live up to the huge success of last year’s final, which got overnights of 2.9 million and 21%.
