The broadcast previously confirmed that Operación Triunfo won’t be used as the country national selection this year. Blas Cantó was internally selected by the network.
Blas Cantó began his romance with Eurovision when he was only 12 years-old. back in 2004, he participated in the Spanish national final for the Junior contest singing “sentie”. The song almost made it to Lillehammer when Bals battled in the superfinal with Mirela.
In 2011, the singer went for his second attempt, this time in the grown ups field. Blas and his Auryn boy-band colleagues were in the finalists lineup of the national final “Destino Eurovisión”
It is yet unknown if Blas’s song for Eurovision will be selected behind closed doors or by the public. Last thin Spain has chosen its act internally was in 2013. El Sueño de Morfeo then held a private song selection to let the views decide the best song for Copenhagen
