Six acts were in the running this year to represent Spain. The fresh faced youngsters competed on Objetivo Eurovision 2016, which was held in Madrid, and hosted by Anna Igariburu. The six acts competing were:
Maverick – Un Mundo mas feliz
Barei – Say Yay!
Xuso Jones – Victorious
Salvador Beltran – Dias de Alegria
Maria Isabel – La vida solo es una
Electric Nana – Now
You might recognise Maria Isabel, who actually won the 2nd edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest with the song Antes Muerta Que Sencilla. Since then, she’s definitely grown up!
Despite the past Eurovision experience, Maria ended up in 4th place, with the final placings as follows:
Barei – 114 points
Xuso Jones – 94 points
Salvador Baltran – 72 points
Maria Isabel 68 points
Electric Nana – 66 points
Maverick – 66 points
