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.
