The Eurovision 2015 season is over, so it’s time for Spanish Eurofans to start placing bets on who will represent Spain in 2016. Following Edurne’s unexpected and disappointing 21st place with “Amanecer”, fans are already offering advice about the potential candidates who should sing for the Mediterranean country next year in Sweden.

Yesterday Eurovision 2002 singer Rosa López — one of most well-known Spanish Eurostars — revealed that she is eager to form a supergroup of former Spanish Eurovision contestants. According to the Spanish website Bluper, Rosa would ask Ruth to compose a “megahit” that would slay inside and outside of the Eurovision Song Contest. Then Rosa would invite singers like Soraya (2009) and Pastora Soler (2012) to join her and Ruth in the supergroup.

Rosa and Ruth both sat on the Spanish Eurovision jury this year, so perhaps they discussed potential collaborations.

Spain: Eurovision 2016 supergroup?

But would such a collaboration actually work? Will it become a matter of who can shout the loudest? Two of our Spanish bloggers (and an American one) sat down to discuss the pros and cons of having all those powerful voices come together.

What do you think? Should Spain go with the idea? Or should they mix up their game in other ways for Eurovision 2016? Let us know below!

I would loooove to see Ruth and Pastora back at Eurovision, but maybe it is time to try something different… At least for a couple of years… Power ballad sung by a female vocalist hasn’t worked so well this year, despite the hype prior to the contest. But hopefully they will stay away from any latino inspired song and go for ‘neutral’ pop. Having said that, Dancing in the Rain and Quedate Conmigo are among the few Eurovision entries that are still on my playlist today!

No, no, no.
Ruth’s Dancing in the Rain was a bad song. I don’t want to hear anything more from her.
Super groups are a bad idea. Too many singers fighting for the camera.
Do something different. Spain should send a man.

It would be like asking Céline Dion and Mariah Carey (off the 90s) to be on the same stage and scream the loudest they could … LOL But only one diva would bring them both to silence: Patty LaBelle … in her 60s …. actually she managed to shut down Mariah’s whistle register in 1998 in a live performance of “Got To Be Real” with her own eiffer tower range. Never underestimate the old school singers … by I get it … people today prefer the outrage of today’s pop stars and their amazing talent for playback considering the amount… Read more »

It was also rumored a few years ago that Spain was going to be represented by a trio Soraya-Charlotte Perrelli-Kate Ryan.

Supergroups don’t work anyway – remember the vampires, this year.
Send Ruth again, with a “megahit” and that’s enough!

Pastora Soler haha!

Not very keen of the idea, I’ve never been a fan of the whole “supergroups” idea. I honestly prefer a good, strong performer singing a good, well thought song, not a group with many different voices and personalities that more often than not, clash with each other in one or other way.

It would be awesome though, to see a collaboration between these ladies, that I would love, love to see, I think it would be quite interesting, just not as a Eurovision entry.

I never like Spanish entries for some reason, this year’s was my favourite since rodolfo chickilacuatra but even then it was only my 17-18 personal favourite in the grand final. I don’t think this would work, it may be a super group to Spain and to eurofans but to the average public all these performers would have been forgetten likely and need reminding by the commentators. Even then, no point in sending the same lot again, give some other artists a chance to go or an actual group with chemistry.

Yo pienso y creo,que lo que deve hacer RTVE tal y como estan las cosas en ESC es mostrar la variedad de artistas y estilos de musica que se hace en mi pais,dar vacaciones a tanta diva Iberica con todos mis respetos hacia ellas.Candidatos mas modernos y no los esteretipos clasicos de ESC,se me ocurre grupos como “la oreja de Van Ghog”,”Efecto pasillo”,”Sweet California”,”Divicio”,otra opcion que puede funcionar seria los DJ con cantantes con buenas voces ejemplos Carlos Jean y Nalaya Brown,ellos representa la musica de Ibiza,cantantes masculinos,Jadel,David Bustamante,Xuso Jones,Pablo Alboran,Manuel Carrasco.Y por que no artitas de estilo Andaluz,Melodi,Diana Navarro,Pasion… Read more »

Pastora Soler and Ruth Lorenzo on the same song? Now that will be a hell of a battle! I think those two would overshadow Rosa and Soraya, who are good vocalists as well. Anyway, bring the supergroup Spain!

Huh

No!!! Give the supergroup a chance in the next few years instead. Singers who have done last year’s or a few more year’s trend does not exactly ensure a successful performance and placing to the grand finals. Take a look back at Tanja and Maria Olafs. Do their performance look familiar from past entrants?

That actually made me laugh! Good line right there. Imagine Anabel Conde in that group! Talk about loud vocals!

Well if they get inspired with forming this super group then why not..
They have great voices…They can find the right song to compete with in Sweden’s Vision & if they really do this project i truly think that their song will be good enough or even winning material..
Spain can WIN next year 4 the first time in the Vision after 1969..(!!)

I love all these ladies but Genealogy proved that supergroups are kind of a nono.

Just send one, like Ruth or pastora with an amazing build ballad then spain will go back to top 10

OH MY WORD!!! I would LOVE this! I agree with Melissa… Even just Ruth and Pastora together in a duet would be epic. Hell, I’d even take Pastora or Ruth alone. I’d really love to see either return to Eurovision. I think if Pastora sings an english song (as much as I love spanish music), she could truely be a winner. #Madrid2017. 🙂

I think it would be interesting, but in the end you’d had too many strong voices cancelling each other out. Really, I would like to hear a duet between Ruth Lorenzo and Pastora Soler someday.

Too many divas, it would never work out. I would love to see Soraya come back after being wronged in 2009 tho.
