His scores as the jury of Objeto Eurovision placed him for many people as a suspect during the show. The truth is that Xavi Martínez has had to face accusations of favoritism towards Manel Navarro since the young man was elected. Anyway, his explanations have begun to falter after the evidence they are seeing the light.
In the Hoy por Hoy program, Martinez saId that he was not linked to Manel Navarro. “The only thing I have done with Manel has been to support him artistically, just as we did in Los 40 with many other artists. […] We put it in Los 40 three weeks before he was to run for the bid. I never interviewed Manel Navarro in my program as a candidate, I did it as an artist“.
