In their song “Tu Canción”, they sing that they feel like their dancing for the first time. And yesterday Spain’s Alfred & Amaia ticked another first off their list: Performing live in London.
The duo – known to Eurofans as #Almaia –performed their Eurovision songs and two solo songs at the London Eurovision Party 2018 last night.
Between soundchecks Alfred & Amaia also found time for an interview with wiwiblogger William.
ALFRED & AMAIA TALK “TU CANCIÓN” WITH WIWIBLOGGS
In the interview Spain’s Eurovision act discuss their overnight stardom in Spain. The pair come across as totally adorable and totally down to earth. Alfred says that for him the gruelling “promotion” tour has been the hardest part of their journey since #OT17. For Amaia, it’s journalist questions about their relationship.
They also talk about their staging for Eurovision. Although #Almaia are sworn to secrecy, they can tell us the performance will be “natural”. That’s because they still see themselves as a normal couple, who do normal things, like go to the cinema.
Alfred also reveals the duo are working with noted Spanish artist, photographer and art director Ernesto Artillo:
“I’m very involved with the outfits. I love Bowie, I love Michael Jackson, I love to do styling and to dress good. Ernesto Artillo is doing great things with us.”
They also shared some behind-the-scenes information about the video shoot for “Tu canción”.
In the video, the sweet Spaniards take flight, aided by harnesses.
“The harnesses hurt! I was bruised black and blue. But it was beautiful,” reveals Amaia. Beauty is pain and our girl gets it!
Fans hoping they’ll bring the harnesses to Lisbon, may be disappointed however. Alfred points out artists like Harry Styles have used harnesses in videos, but don’t on stage, so #Almaia won’t take flight on stage in Lisbon.
