Last October, RTVE internally appointed Blas Cantó as the Spanish representative in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. A seasoned performer with extensive experience in both television and live stages, the artist from Murcia is one of the most interesting musical happenings in Spain in recent years, first with his band Auryn and now as a successful solo artist.
Blas Cantó (27) is a young popular Spanish artist, who already participated in the 2011 national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest with the successful band Auryn. They just missed out on winning the ticket to Düsseldorf, finishing second with the song Volver. Blas became a household name in Spain after his participation in EuroJunior, the Spanish selection for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2004.
To date, Blas has released five albums. His first four albums were released with the boyband Auryn, which became the Best Spanish Act in the MTV Europe Music Awards. His first solo album Complicado, which included the big hit Él No Soy Yo, was released in 2018.
"It's a longtime dream of mine," Blas confessed during a short interview following the announcement: "I dreamt of participating in the Eurovision Song Contest since I was a child." Blas Cantó is a singer with a broad performing record and extensive experience both on television as well as on stage.
