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!

That would be great . Her name is actually beside Pablo Alboran the greatest one in Spain. No more starlets from casting shows, please ! And of course with a song in Spanish, which sounds very international.

He does have a good voice and a good attitude. Of course, none of these are going to matter if they don’t fix the Spanish song selection process.

He has no personality and his new single is there to prove that. It’s not all about wanting to go to ESC, you need to know who you are, what you do and what you have to offer as a musician and Famous clearly hasn’t found all these answers yet. I’m not sure if he ever will either. All I see is a good boy who does everything his record label tells him even if it’s not the right thing to do, so I don’t want him to go. Good luck with your carreer, although I think it’s going to… Read more »

You can’t just judge his personality based on a one single of his lmao.

Just seeing him in OT, and his interviews give enough material to prove right to Rafael. The kid has no artistic personality at all. Adding that he is not the smartest cookie in the jar to the mix. And its a real. Thank you, but NO.

I really see Famous representing us with an urban song with his look and a cool dance routine. I don’t really think we have seen something like that in Eurovision. That would be ideal. But the song has to be better than “Bulla”. The chorus and the dance move in it are good, but the rest of the song is a bit weak and the lyrics very simple…

Eventhough it’s Famous’ article, I do notice Lola Indigo seems to be everywhere near articles about Spain. Nevertheless, I want to see Famous try Eurovision for the second time.

His voice is incredible. He is charismatic. He can move. He is bringing (finally) something fresh for Spain. Please go for it! Spain! Go for it!

He’s talented, charismatic and he REALLY wants do do it. As long as he has a good song (and Rosalía doesn’t call RTVE offering her services, which sadly and obviously won’t happen), why not?

Latin Pop is the biggest trend of the western music market at the moment. Rtve really needs to make use of that.

Spain is sending artists that they dont want to go to eurovision. Even if they have chances to succeed, that turns out to be impossible…

Famous lo tiene todo para ganar Eurovisión 2020, voz espectacular, baila y presencia escénica. Con una canción que combine baile y coreografía llevaría seguro a España al top 5 y hasta ganar

The dude is talented and he wants to do it. That they gave him such a boring song to try for Eurovision with is really a shame, since he competed at OT for the chance to go to Eurovision and WON. THAT’S commitment.

pairing a singer with a song they have no choice to change, n forcin them to sing it in 2019 is just…not it

Had he released “Bulla” 2 weeks later we would have this perfectly 3 minute Spanish bop in the contest *sigh*

I had the same thougth!Why didn’t they wait to release the song until it was Eurovision-compliance??? I think it would be just an original style to bring to the Eurovision stage

I think, at some point, RTVE will be glad to find anyone who is still willing to represent them at Eurovision. One place between 21 and 26 seems to be permanently reserved for them.
