Spain is locked in for the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 and only its selection remains a mystery.
In that event the show is more likely to be the case of picking a song for the singer or group rather than picking the singer themselves.
Who might TVE pick to sing for Spain at Eurovision?
This is difficult to call – the only link between the wildly different styles of Pastora and ESDM is that both acts were signed to Warner Music Spain.
Pablo Alborán has been a long term favourite to sing for Spain at Eurovision. Daniel Diges was the last male soloist to sing for Spain and finished in 15th place with 68 points.
Disappointing but we’re willing to bet if Pablo focuses on his good looks, good voice and ditches Daniel’s dodgy clowns he could be onto a winner. His latest album went double platinum in Spain last month and he shows no signs of slowing down.
Maybe opening up his music to a European audience might attract him to ESC? Also he’s TOTALLY signed to Warner Music Spain!
Another singer in the frame is pop-singer Edurne who rose to fame on Spanish reality singing competition Operacíon Triunfo. Her 2014 single ‘Painkiller’ drew comparisons to US popstar Lady Gaga.
Fresh from a stint on Tu Cara Me Suena, Edurne has shown she’s no stranger to reality TV and maybe ESC could be her next gambit. Her last album Climax was also part produced in Stockholm so who knows – maybe she’s already found her ESC entry and has been waiting to unveil it?
Could Spain win from internal selection?
Ruth Lorenzo overcame a controversial national final result to place 10th in Copenhagen in May. ESDM however bombed in Malmö in 2013.
If TVE have the right singer though – and they’ve proved good at picking female soloists the past few years – they might finally win Eurovision again.
And let’s not forget, Conchita was internally selected and she cruised to victory.
Well we’ll know soon either way y’all: Detras de la Tele reports TVE want the decision made by the end of December. All we have to say is: olé!
What do y’all think? Could Edurne or Pablo rock it if TVE picked them to sing for Spain in Copenhagen? Comment below y’all!
