Maria Jose Llergo has been chosen by the participants in the already traditional poll "The Internal Election" of the
website Eurovision-Spain as the favorite to represent Spain in the next European song festival, to be held in
May 2023 in the UK.

After the singer-songwriter from Cordoba, with her song "The sea awaits you", Internet users have also shown their preferences for Ana Mena and the song "Las 12", which finished in second place, and for Guitarricadelafuente with "Who turned on the light”, which completes the podium.

In addition, an old candidate to represent Spain in Eurovision, La Casa Azul, appears in fourth position, this time thanks to his song "No hay futuro", and the artist María Peláe, with "Si te vas", who has been fifth in the votes.

The result of this survey has been published a few days after the

It so happens that Llergo finished in third position in "The Internal Election" last year behind Tanxugueiras and Rigoberta Bandini, a popular support that prompted these artists to formally present their candidacy for Benidorm Fest.
