The theme of carnival in 2005 was Hollywood musicals: The scenery, for the last time in the Plaza de España, was inspired by Hollywood musicals, in shades of white, black and gray. The gala, directed by Jaime Azpilicueta, had the participation of more than 1,000 members of carnival groups and troupes, who staged numbers from the most popular musicals on Broadway and the West End, such as "Wizard of Oz", "Dancing in the rain", "Grease", "Seven brides for seven brothers", "My Fair Lady", "Saturday Night Fever" and "West Side Story" among others. The jury, which included actresses Lina Morgan and Carmen Sevilla, had a difficult time choosing from among the twelve candidates.
