David Bisbal took part in the first edition of Operación Triunfo, the incredibly popular casting show that served to select the Spanish entry at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Estonia. He was the runner-up but was given the oportunity to be a backing singer for the winner Rosa in Tallin and their pop tune Europe's Living A Celebration.
Soon after that experience David already ranked among Spain's top performers with a very international career and success all over the Spanish speaking world. That ultimately took him to the stage of the Royan Albert Hall, one of the most sought after venues in the world, where the 1968 Eurovision Song Contest took place. That year's competition was won by Spain's Massiel and her La, La, La, famously pipping the favourite Cliff Richard and Congratulations to the post by just one point.

This week marked the perfect moment to conquer that stage again with Bisbal's acoustic production Una Noche En El Teatro Real (A Night At The Royal Theatre), which earned him a latin Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Pop Album just hours before the concert took place.
David was accompanied by some guest stars which included Spain's singers Rosario, Malu and Pastora Soler. Pastora managed a Top 10 finish for Spain at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku with Quédate Conmigo and performed alongside David Bisbal at the Royal Albert Hall the bolero Adoro.
David Bisbal's concert at the Royal Alebrt Hall was recorded for television and will premiere on the Spanish channel Tele 5 in time for Christmas while David keeps touring the world. Next stop Carnegie Hall New York.
