In an interview with El Mundo, Amaia kept things real and spilled her tea about his Eurovision 2019 entry: “I do not like his song very much, that’s just my opinion, but I wish him luck”.
The shade of it all! She added that the song is “not my thing and it does not get me hooked”.
Amaia Romero performed “Tu Cancion” in Lisbon alongside Alfred Garcia, finishing in 23rd place with a total of 61 points. It will be interesting to find out come May whether Miki’s “La Venda” will be able to rack up more points than last year’s duet.
Amaia also discussed her absence from Operacion Triunfo, Spain’s National Eurovision selection, explaining that she chose not to perform because of Spain’s result in Lisbon: “After how bad we were last year, I did not feel it was my place to pass the baton’.
She denied that there was any bad blood between her and Alfred.
During the interview Amaia also discussed her upcoming album, which was recorded in Chile and Argentina: “Now we are choosing the songs that will make the cut and those that will be left out”. She has a release date in mind, though she hasn’t revealed it, and is very excited about the new record.
She’s given a few hints about what to expect from her new songs. “They talk about what all the pop songs now speak about: love, lack of love…”
We’re excited to hear Amaia’s new sound, and if not even “La Venda” is up to scratch for her, we’re expecting big things from the new album!
What do you think? Do you think that Miki will fare better than Amaia and Alfred at Eurovision? Or do you yearn for the good old days of “Tu Cancion”? Let us know in the comments!
