Spain’s Blas Cantó is one of the very first artists to RSVP for Eurovision 2020. So early that he does not appear to have a song yet. Thankfully for all of us eager beavers, he has been giving hints about what he’ll sing in Rotterdam. He wants his song to be in Spanish, and he won’t go for a ballad or anything uptempo.
In an interview with news agency Europa Press, Blas explained his feelings towards the language he’ll be singing in: “It’s tempting to sing in English because Europe will be able to understand me, but it’s not necessary that people understand what I sing — music is universal.”

As for the song itself, Blas makes it pretty clear he’ll be doing a mid-tempo number: “I don’t want a ballad but I don’t want to throw a party either,” he said. That’s no surprise knowing his back catalogue.
He also says it’s unlikely he’ll perform alone, as he’d like to have someone with him on stage. However, it will all depend on the song he eventually chooses.

Good morning, you’re going to Eurovision!
This weekend Blas performed at a charity concert to raise funds for research for breast cancer. Speaking to the media on the red carpet, he explained how exactly how he found out he was chosen to represent Spain.
“I was asleep when they called me. I replied and they said: ‘hey, let’s do Eurovision this year’ and I was like ‘wait, this year?’, so I said ‘wait, I just woke up and I need a coffee first.'”
Bet you can’t find a better way of waking up than that!
Blas also had to face the million dollar question known to every Spanish Eurovision artist: “What if you finish last?” For him, Eurovision is more about having a good song, performing it well and keeping on going with your career afterwards. “It’s just another step in my career, and I wouldn’t mind finishing last,” he said.
It’s still way too early to predict, but do you think Blas should fear finishing last? Or do you think he’ll break Spain’s strike of bad luck? And what do you want his song to be like? Let us know in the comment section below”
