We’ve got lived that long-awaited (and feared) second of the yr: on the night time of February 20, Spain selected the song that can symbolize us at the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest. Blas Cantó will interpret « I’m going to remain », which based on the polls, was the favourite alternative of most Eurofans. The determination was made at the ‘Vacation spot Eurovision’ gala, a program that was not with out criticism.
The gala started with a Eurovision medley interpreted by Cantó to later go on to the performances of the two candidate songs, « I’m going to remain » and « Reminiscence ». In about ten minutes of the program, our consultant had already interpreted his two proposals, which might result in a succession of interviews, movies and duets of our consultant along with visitors reminiscent of Pastora Soler or Edurne.
The controversies would start shortly after the gala started, with the already conventional sound failures of TVE’s music codecs. Our consultant would achieve success in performances through which he wouldn’t take heed to himself. The goal of criticism was additionally the rhythm of a gala that, regardless of presenting solely two songs, lasted 40 minutes greater than stipulated. Have we Eurofans made an excellent determination with Cantó’s song? How may this choice gala have been improved? We analyze these points and others in ‘Eurovision Diaries’.
