Alfred and Amaia will represent Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon. They have won their tickets for the contest at the Spanish talent show ‘Operación Triunfo’. Six contestants competed in the show with nine songs. After a first round of public votes three songs made it to a next round, where they were given the opportunity to perform their song once again. The overall winner was chosen by public vote. Alfred and Amaia sang the duet Tu Canción and won the final round with 43% of the votes.
The first time I heard the song I wasn’t really fond of it. I thought the overall contest and all the songs were quite boring and clearly not good enough for Eurovision. During the second performance of the song, I actually liked it. I think what bothered me the first time were those stupid pianos. I got get why they would start at the piano and then after about 40 seconds leave the piano. That doesn’t make any sense so I really hope they get rid of them at Eurovision. The second time I really paid attention to their voices and I have to say that I really liked the performance. It was very sweet and the lyrics are just amazing. I don’t think this will do great at Eurovision since I feel like everyone is over the magical songs by now. But with some improvements it could really stand out and be special. 8/10
