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?
