She gave Spain their last win at a Eurovision event when she won the Junior Eurovision Song Contest back in 2004. She is all grown up now and is a stunning singer. Twitter fans are already saying that her song “La vida sólo es una”, that was released on October 20th, should be her song for Eurovision 2016. Guess what – the song is 3 minutes long!
He was a finalist of ‘The Voice’ in Spain this year and his handsome good looks and musical talent have seen him be extremely popular on Twitter today with Eurovision fans. He’s already signed to Universal Music Spain and has the album ’18+1′. He can sing, he can dance and he is easy on the eye – he’s a triple threat!

Born in Las Palmas, Dasoul is a singer, songwriter and producer and was signed to Roster Music in 2012. His first song ‘De Lao Lao’ was a huge hit and topped the iTunes charts. Dasoul also performed the song ‘Todos los latinos’ with Henry Mendez and Cristian Deluxe Charly Rodriguez, an song that has become a benchmark for any dance music in Spain and much of Latin America. Here is his latest hit that was released in November.
Like many others Xuso began his career by posting videos on YouTube. The turning point in his career came courtesy of a viral video for the ‘Drive Thru’ in the McDonalds fast food restaurants. He is signed to Universal Music and has had a very successful career. He has opened for acts like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Jessie J.
Brequette will be no stranger to Eurovision fans. She drew with Ruth Lorenzo at the Spanish national selection in 2014. She won the Jury vote and came second with the public. Could she go one step further in 2016 if she makes it to the Spanish selection.
