Four and a half months after that first gala, “Your face is familiar to me” has come to an end. And has done so crowning Mary Villalon as the winner of the musical contest of Antena 3. The artist from malaga was the candidate most voted by the public and prevailed in the final to the other four finalists, Carlos Baute, Soraya Arnelas, Mimi Doblas and Jordi Coll to take the victory in the program of Antenna 3.
“We are in the end more matched in the history of “Your face is familiar to me”” said Manel Sources before the start of the night. And it was not for less. The evening began with the performance of Jordi Coll, who came to the final as the fifth qualifier and that showed their credentials by imitating Bon Jovi “Keep the faith”. Each participant could interpret the theme that you would like from any artist and it is certain that Coll the burgundy. Like Soraya, first classified in the table and that gave everything with “Never enough”, Jenny Lind, song from the soundtrack of the film “The great showman”.
Then went up to the stage the first of the non-finalists of the night, who also marched this Friday for “Your face sounds”. Was Anabel Alonso, who sang “Thanks for coming”, Lina Morgan, a prelude of the great performance of María Villalón. The winner of the first edition of “X Factor” came to the gala final as the fourth in the general classification, and he shone with his version of “green Eyes”, of his much-admired Passion Vega. “You deserve everything good that happens to you,” he said Chicago, the competition jury. He was not without reason. His career background has led him to conquer the program.
The jury, everything is said, was the absence of Lolita Flores, replaced in its stand-by Silvia April. So, April, Chicago, Carlos Latre and Angel Llácer were in charge of evaluating the contestants, but on this occasion their votes had little value. The opposite of what happened last week, when the votes of the jury accounted for 50% of the total of each score, on this occasion the decision was entirely in the hands of the public of “Your face sounds”.
After Villalón took the stage , Carlos Baute, that flashed to the beat of Manolo Escobar and “My cart”, a tribute to the song more authentic Spanish. We continued to the second runner-up, José Corbacho, last classified the program and tried to compensate by imitating Miguel Bosé with “One year of love”.
After Corbacho, it was the turn to Mimi Doblas (or Lola Indigo). The exconcursante of ‘OT 2017″ dared “You and I”, Lady Gaga. It did before Manu Sanchez, not another finalist, mimic Manuel Carrasco with “Let me be”.
Mimi Doblas and Jordi Coll, fourth and fifth
After the first eight performances, Manel Fuentes gave to know the percentages of the two finalists less voted on. In fifth place finished Jordi Coll, with 8% of support from the public, while the fourth ended Mimi Doblas, who despite coming into the final as the second ranked was 20% of votes and finished in fourth place. Before the end, Mimi had asked the audience that apostasen by María Villalón.
After that, he performed the first of two guest artists of the night, the actress Yolanda Ramos. The interpreter, exconcursante of the fifth edition, which imitated the French artist Claude François, also known as Clocio. After that, it was the turn of Brays Efe, who was also a finalist and was stunned at the scenario with its particular version of “The band”, the song with the Miki Nunez will represent this year to Spain in Eurovision. The last performance before that Manel Fuentes announced the winner was the singer Manuel Carrasco, who “performed” himself with his “Let me be”, the theme song that was interpreted by Manu Sánchez.
The expectation was high before that Sources say the name of the contestant who finished as the first ranked of the edition, and that therefore, he won 30,000 euros to invest in any non-profit organization. That first place went to María Villalón, who won by only 1% of votes at the second, Carlos Baute. 35% of the viewers supported the malagueña, while 34% of the audience voted by Baute. Soraya, the third in discord and reached the final in first position, finished third with a 31% of votes.
