¡La venda ya cayó! Spain’s Eurovision 2019 blindfold has dropped. And it’s revealed not only a revamp, but also the official music video for Miki’s “La Venda”.
After a week of teasers and anticipation, we can now enjoy “La venda” in all its revamped glory. The energy remains, as do the trumpets. However, this new version sounds a little more pop and a little less brass band.
The bridge, in particular, has been enhanced. Like the beginning, it feels much more like a party anthem. However, the new ending is a bit more abrupt.
This, according to RTVE, will make it feel more mainstream and appeal to a wider audience.
Regardless of what the TV execs say, we all know the real reason why Spain’s entry carries so much appeal — Miki. He’s now more central to the song and his vocals rise above the musical base.

The clip itself is pretty much a huge fiesta and has us thirsting for sangría. Spain’s entry is a happiness boost and the video reflects that.
Also, have you noticed the choreography? “La venda” apparently has its own move now! Will it feature in the Tel Aviv staging?

While RTVE were teasing the entry, Miki took a flight to Tel Aviv to film his postcard. It includes a lot of his favourite sport — football!
Miki’s Israeli schedule was exhausting. He had to endure a hard chreography session and film it for his postcard. On Tuesday night, he told Twitter that he was having a hectic day. On Wednesday he would need to wake up at 03.15 in the morning!
Estoy petado. Son las 22.12h. Acabo de llegar al hotel. Nos despertamos a las 03.15h para grabar la postcard. No puedo ni con mi alma… Pero hemos venido a curraar ostiaaa! A darlo todo para que quede genial! Arriba los ánimoooooos pic.twitter.com/pVXKLe8wJc
