He was one of the first artists confirmed for Eurovision 2020 and now we are one step closer to hearing his song for Rotterdam. Spain’s act Blas Cantó today revealed the title of his song for Eurovision. He will sing “Universo” in Rotterdam.

Blas announced the news via a post on Spanish broadcaster RTVE’s Eurovision TikTok account, after a long morning of Twitter teases on the broadcaster’s account.

On Thursday, Blas will reveal the single’s cover along with the release date of both the song and the music video. It’s been heavily suggested that the first performance of “Universo” will happen in one of the galas of this year’s Operación Triunfo. Perhaps this could even be this Sunday?

But until then, Blas has dropped a hint about the style of the song. He told RTVE that his song has a “new and risky flair for me, but it preserves my essence”. He added that he was very happy with the result and that he had no limits from RTVE while working on the song

Weeks of teasing

Blas has been teasing about his Eurovision entry almost from the moment he was selected. He first revealed the song title was only one word, and “it’s a word that one can appreciate in many languages.”

During the same interview, he announced his plan to reveal the song title by holding a game on social media for people to guess what it is.

The Spanish singer almost caused heart attacks amongst fans on Monday night, when he suddenly erased all his photos on Instagram, and put a black background on all his social media accounts.

By the morning, he uploaded a new image, with the hashtag “#Euroestreno” (Euro-premiere), which led some fans to think that the song was coming sometime on Tuesday.

Nevertheless, RTVE announced soon afterwards that we’d have to wait for the song. More news will be revealed on Thursday. Will we hear “Universo” this week?

What do you think? What sort of song do you think Blas will be singing? Tell us your thoughts below!

Not that fast. I expect at least 2 more teases before release date. Maybe something about staging. Or music video.

I hope Universo isn’t something bland like “Bigger than Us.” There’s a lot riding for Spain to get out of the bottom five.

Bunch of fans loved Spain’s entry 2018 and it had literally “Everything’s perfect if you’re by my side creating a new city” in lyrics. Even if it’s as bland as “Bigger Than Us”, if you don’t know spanish, you won’t realize.

Having Eurovision in Spain would be amazing for 2021.
My dream timeline for Eurovision host cities are
2021 – Madrid, Spain
2022 – Zagreb, Croatia
2023 – Paris, France
2024 – Glasgow, UK
2025 – Antwerp, Belgium
2026 – Rome, Italy

No, the joke is that by 2024 San Marino will have already conquered most of Europe including Glasgow. I thought it was pretty obvious.

I actually made up a fake future Eurovision timeline once, kind of like you did. Funny thing is, in mine Belgium hosted in 2025 and Italy in 2026, just like in yours lol

It’s 5th time he teases his song. 5th. And no, I’m not counting introduction. If this ends up being dated ballad, I’m gonna be legitimately mad. At this point I have bad feeling it’s gonna flop pretty hard.

he already said it’s not a ballad. just because we’re waiting too much doensn’t mean it will flop….

Sounds promising. TVE is starting to take Eurovision seriously it seems. I trust Blas Canto, I’m sure he knows what he needs to do and how to do it. He’s such a good artist and a nice person. I usually like his style too, so I think I’ll like the song, even more if it is something “original” as he says. For now it is just a title though.

So basically, it’s none of the guesses I made from the thread before.

I should have thought of “Universo” though considering Miss Universe was not that long ago. Jeje
