Spain: Luna Ki Withdraws From “Benidorm Fest 2022”

Earlier this morning, we got the news: Luna Ki has decided to give up competing in “Benidorm Fest 2022” – the Spanish selection for Eurovision 2022.

The news has been reported on the RTVE website.

The reason she chose to withdraw was because of the ban on using auto-tune in the live performance. The decision follows EBU regulations which forbid auto-tune.

The singer made an official announcement on her Twitter account,

The singer explained her decision by saying auto-tune is a common tool in the music industry. It has been used by singer Cher since 1998.
She will hold a special press conference tomorrow at 16:30 Spain time.
