The Silla de Plata went to singer Víctor Palacios, and the Silla de Bronce to Cádiz singer Jesús Castilla. There were all accompanied by the contest’s official guitarist Pepe Núñez.
The show “Dalearte” of Miguel Téllez included dancer Lidón Patiño as guest artist, and singers Paco el Trini and Juañares, guitarists Juan Serrano and Luis Miguel Manzano, the wind instruments of Diego Villegas and Yelsi Heredia on bass. A show of great creativity, backed up by excellent musicians and the stylized dancing of Miguel Téllez.
