Eurovision 2018 is here. In just a few hours time, the competition will kick off, with all the action live on SBS across Australia.
But before it all gets underway, we’re bringing to an end our Countdown To Eurovision 2018 series with a look at Spain’s entry.
Naturally, as part of the “big five” (alongside Italy, the UK, France and Germany), they won’t need to worry with all this semi final business. They’re granted automatic qualification to the Grand Final, alongside host nation Portugal.
The Spanish are going with the tried and tested reality show contestants as their 2018 representatives.
Both Amaia Romeo and Alfred Garcia took part in the most recent series of TV talent contest ‘Operación Triunfo’; Alfred placing fourth, Amaia winning.
They’ll be performing the single ‘Tu canción’ (‘Your Song’ to the English speaking among us).
It’s a beautiful little piano ballad that blends the pair’s voices quite perfectly.
Both have the chance to do a little close-to-the-mic vocal action, which distinctly reminds us of last year’s winner (Portugal’s Salvador Sobral). Familiar? Absolutely.
But it’s really pretty and we’ll give it neuf points.
