He was one of the few, if not the only, Operación Triunfo 2018 act who really wanted to go to Eurovision 2019. Sadly, Famous Oberogo was paired with a sub-par song and the public buried his chances. However, one year later, the OT 2018 winner wants to give Eurovision another go.
In a recent interview with Formula TV, Famous explained that he actually entered OT in order to be given the chance to go to Eurovision.
One year later, he’s preparing his first album and has just released his first single “Bulla”, so it feels like the right time to fly the Spanish flag. It’s also worth mentioning that Famous was born in the Netherlands, so he already has a connection.
Famous Oberogo – “Bulla” music video
Famous says he’s willing to take it all, both an internal and an open selection, and he also shares his vision of his Eurovision entry: he wants to showcase his vocals, but still be able to dance, although maybe not as much as in his first single.
Why is that? Because his dance moves in “Bulla” are LIT. He’s been working for weeks with the choreographer of artists like Lola Indigo, to create a dance routine for the music video which leaves you exhausted just by watching it. He kills it, though.
Also, Famous explains in the interview that he already has the track list of his debut album, but he’s still working in the songs that will be included in the record. Will any of those be his Eurovision song? The season has already started, and anything he releases now is potential Eurovision material…
Meanwhile, RTVE has been tweeting randomly throughout the summer but no announcement on the selection method has been made. We already explained that the dates of OT 2020 may clash with the Eurovision song submission deadline, so one would guess all options are open.
Do you think Famous could represent Spain in Rotterdam? Should have he been given the chance last year? Would a song like his new single work at Eurovision? How should Spain select its Eurovision 2020 act? Tell us in the comment section below!
