She placed fourth on Tu Cara Me Suena in 2018 and is on the promo tour for her forthcoming album Inseperado

And now Spanish outlet Bluper reports Diana Navarro has her eyes on Eurovision 2020 glory for Spain.

In an interview talking about the new album, Navarro says she’d “love” to go to the Contest:

“I would love to be able to participate in such a festival.”

Her participation is conditional though:

“If I go, it has to be with my team, because if I hit it, I’m going to hit it.”

Rumours of an internal selection are rife, after it emerged Operación Triunfo may not act as the Eurovision selection for 2020.

Diana Navarro at Eurovision 2020 for Spain?

Diana Navarro has previous with Eurovision.

She approached Eurovision broadcaster TVE to represent Spain for Eurovision 2018.

That time it wasn’t to be.

Navarro, like much of Spain, found out live on TV that Operación Triunfo would be used as a national final for Eurovision.

The “Sola” hitmaker even had a song ready to submit. Participation in Tu Cara Me Suena at the time led Spanish media to report Diana Navarro as an ideal candidate for Eurovision. Edurne won the 2013-2014 series before representing Spain at Eurovision 2015.

Whether Diana’s dream will be realised this year remains to be seen.

Edurne won’t return to Eurovision

One queen who won’t be in the frame for Eurovision 2020 is the Tigress herself.

Edurne has ruled out a return to the contest, saying she wants other stars to have the “opportunity”.

Speaking to Cadena 100 the “Amanecer” singer says:

There are stages in life, Eurovision has passed, and life goes on.”

She also cited the intensity of the experience as a factor:

There are many hours of rehearsals and many people giving opinions…and you want to arrive at your most rested for the contest, to be able to rehearse well, but you arrive tired.

That said she hasn’t entirely ruled out a return to the contest at some point. Edurne feels having been once means that you know what to expect and can prepare better. But for now she wants other artists to have the opportunity.

What do you think about our Spanish Queens’ words? Do you want Diana Navarro to go to Eurovision? Or Edurne to return? Let us know in the comments below!

So will people actually be nice to this Navarro? The last one didn’t exactly get much support. Personally I’d love to see Famous internally selected. He won operacian triunfo, it’s his dream to go to Eurovision and he has an insane voice. Let him work on a song with Cesar Sampson and the symphonix team and you’ll be on to a winner!

Sorry, not for Spain ! Diana Navarro would be a interesting choice with an entry in Spanish (which I can speak)

Spain needs to send anyone who is an established artist who knows how to perform. End of story #NoMoreNewbies

I’m not sure about her style. I don’t like it personally, but could be an interesting choice nevertheless. It’s good to have artists of her caliber interested in Eurovision

I think TVE will internally select someone from the past two seasons of OT (Famous or Agoney) and have them present their ESC entry as a guest performer during the new OT season.

Famous was down to do Eurovision, but he got let down by a mediocre song. Give him something like John Lundvik or Cesar Sampson and it’ll be top 5 for sure!

Well, then they should go for Aitana!

She’s too big right now (in terms of chart success), maybe in a few years.

I am still hoping for Famous to represent Spain. He may finally give the country a good placing in the grand final.

Well, divas with powerful ballads have proved to be the only successful attempts of Spain in this decade. I’m not saying Diana would necessarily do well because of that, but I don’t understand the hate.

Ok, RTVE, listen very carefully: its been 50 years since you last won and twenty-four since the last time you were a contender. We get it, Eurovision isn’t necessarily top priority, but your music scene is too good to let a chance at victory slip through your fingers. Pick Diana, let her do her thing, and you could be seeing your best finish in years!

RTVE: scrap all plans for a national selection vis OT or any other format and just pick Diana. Don’t alienate a famous star enthusiastic and willing to represent Spain in 2020.

Well, I am Spanish, eurovision fan since I was a kid and I don’t know any song by Diana Navarro. Unluckily she is nowhere near being considered a famous star, sorry guys.

I really hope TVE forgets about OT this year and considers Diana. She has an impressive voice, and she proved in Tu Cara Me Suena she can handle a variety of genres. Just don’t ask her to play Kelly Rowland or Aretha Franklin again and everything will be fine.

Spain needs a killer song to get away with the staging disasters every year. Last year they destroyed a reasonable song that could have finished in the top 13 with good staging.

We HAD a killer song in the national final. But first we butchered it with a revamp it didn’t need… and then came the staging.

I think we didn’t need any special staging for La Venda but people is too obssesed for stagings.
Miki having fun and jumping was enough and the best way to sell it but juries did what they did anyway xd

Staging ruined it. It was confusing and all over the place for no reason. However it still didn’t deserve last place from the juries and would have gotten a better televoting result had the staging been as simple and fun as the song itself was.

*expensive* staging and a famous stage director. FLOP!

To be fair, La Venda was staged reasonably well. It wasn’t amazing but it was serviceable and fit the song.
