Meet the presenters of Benidorm Fest 2024

The last thing that has been known has been the presenters of the Benidorm Fest 2024. This year, RTVE has opted for three well-known faces on the Spanish television panorama.

On the one hand, it will be Ruth Lorenzo. One of the Spanish artists most closely linked to the Eurovision festival, since, in addition to representing Spain in 2014, she has also been in charge of transmitting the points in the contest. On the other hand, Ana Prada, the house’s big bet this year is the second pillar of this edition. She is known to the audience for being a reporter at España Directo and currently works at Mornings. Finally, Marc Calderó, one of the star signings of the Public Network for this season.

How to vote for your favorite?

In both the first and second semi-finals, as well as in the grand final, the same voting dynamics will be followed. Once the eight participants have defended their performance on stage, the presenters will announce that the lines are now open to vote through the televoting system, that is, SMS and calls.

Artists invited to Benidorm Fest 2024

Although it is expected that there will be some surprises at the moment, RTVE has only confirmed that Camela, Abraham Mateo, Vicco and Sergio Dalma will be some of the guest artists at the Benidorm Fest 2024 galas. Of course, the festival organization has not given more details about who will be performing in each of the three galas that make up the festival.

However, Vicco has revealed on her social networks that she will be one of the artists who will sing in the first semi-final on Tuesday, January 30, and in addition, the singer Beret has also been seen in the contest area, so It would not be strange if it were another of the surprise artists who will sing at the festival.
