Eurovision Spain

“Tu cancioc”, by Alfred y Amaia, has been selected as Spain’s heart-warming entry in Eurovision 2018. The couple will represent their country in the annual song contest, that viewers either love or hate, in Lisbon on May 12.

They will hope to overturn Spain’s dismal performance in 2017 when "Do It For Your Lover" performed by Manel Navarro ended in twenty-sixth place - and last. Composed by Raul Gomez, this year’s song was specially written for the duo and the chemistry between them is clear. Raúl was the 2013 winner of the show El Número Uno who then moved to London to start his songwriting career. He submitted a song for Spain in 2016 that did not make it out of the pre-selection. Raúl’s aunt Sylvia released two albums in the early 2000s before taking a break for her family, but is now returning to songwriting. They wrote the song inspired by Alfred and Amaia’s real-life romance.

Spanish broadcaster TVE used the ninth series of reality television talent competition Operacion Triunfo to select the winning song. The talent show Operación Triunfo, also known in Spain as OT, premiered on the Spanish broadcaster, RTVE, in 2001 with the ultimate goal of being the method for selecting the Spanish entry in the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest. The method was used again in 2003 and 2004. Its outstanding success brought a new wave of interest in the Eurovision Song Contest in Spain, and news of the show's return was welcomed with enthusiasm.

 Alfred and Amaia have been the tabloid winners from the beginning, earning far more media attention due to their on screen and off screen relationship than any of the other candidates in the process. The song “Tu Cancion” is a love ballad that is sleepy and romantic. Similar to Salvador Sorbal’s winning song from 2017. The Operacion Triunfo revival in Spain has been an astronomical success and expectations on the pair for Eurovision are extremely high.

TVE has also shared behind the scenes footage of Amaia and Alfred’s postcard shoot. The duo filmed the clip in The Azores, one of two autonomous regions of Portugal. The clip shows the duo enjoying breakfast, the landscape and visiting a hot geyser.

Alfred (20) is from El Prat de Llobregat (Barcelona). He is studying a Higher Degree in Music and the third year of the Audiovisual Communication degree. He is a musician and a cinematographer. He comes from a family of musicians. He has self-published three albums and plans to release a feature film in 2018, of which he has also written the soundtrack. One of his favourite singers is Michael Jackson.

Amaia (19) is from Pamplona (Navarra). This year she finished her high school studies and is completing a professional degree in piano but she prefers singing. She also plays the guitar, the ukulele, and drums. Among her favourite artists are Marisol and The Beatles.
