Almost a year ago wiwibloggs reported rumours that a certain Spanish tigress named Edurne was in the running to sing at Eurovision 2015. Now, as the year draws to a close, rumours are pouring thick and fast out of Madrid. Open your eyes and ears and you’ll start hearing chatter about rock band Mägo de Oz and young pop star Abraham Mateo.

Mägo de Oz for Eurovision?

Mägo de Oz (Wizard of Oz in English) have been tipped to enter Eurovision for a long time and band members say they have already composed multiple songs they want to put forward for the contest.

Despite being a rock band, they are excited by the challenge the contest promises and are opposed to the suggestion that Eurovision ruins careers. As their drummer Txus di Fellatio (probably not his real name) told OGAE Spain: “Artists that say Eurovision is a danger to their careers are showing the Contest a lack of respect and that they have an inferiority complex.”

The band also has the support of past contestants Soraya, Pastora Soler and Ruth Lorenzo, who have praised the different sound the band could bring to the contest.

Abraham Mateo at Eurovision?

Pop star Abraham Mateo may lack the endorsements from previous acts, but he makes up for that with some serious chart firepower: his last two albums hit the Top 3 in Spain and his 2014 album Who I AM was certified platinum.

Commenting on speculation from his fans that he would sing at Eurovision, Mateo confirmed he would be happy to sing at the contest as he loves new experiences.

Neither act is a lock, however: Spanish national broadcaster RTVE has remained remarkably tight-lipped about their selection process and it remains unclear how the broadcaster will select Edurne’s successor for Eurovision 2016.

Would you be excited to see Mägo de Oz? Or do you want Abraham Mateo on stage in Stockholm? Anyone else? Comment below!

As a Spaniard, if Abraham or Mago de Oz represent us in 2016 I wont follow the contest this year. We want Ruth! (Or someone actually GOOD).

Portugal is out of ESC16, but I have an idea, bring a Portuguese singer feat Spanish singer 🙂
For example: Pablo Alborán – Perdóname (con Carminho); David Bisbal Feat. Cuca Roseta – Si Aún Te Quieres Quedar

Neither, but I would prefer Abraham (only in a extreme case). Mago de Oz, it’s just no and I don’t see them have any sucess.
I hope that TVE choose other singer…

I agree with you, after Mans victory , 3rd place by Volo last year , we wili have many man singers and boyband or manband at Eurovision 2015.
Similar when after hat -tric by Ireland with ballad, we had Eurovison 1995 with so many ballads, only few songs was uptempo songs from Austria, France,UK.

Abraham Mateo would get the best result for Spain. He’s young and a great singer. TVE, you know what you gotta do.

With Abraham Mateo Spain have better chance for good placement in final. With similar song like Old school I see Spain from 6 to 10 place in final.

It would be nice to see a male for Spain at Eurovision. I believe the last time a male solo artist represented Spain was 2010.
