About Adrián Valiente (Spain)

Adrián Valiente (Spain)
I love the Eurovision Song Contest not only because of its amazing production but it also gives me the chance to discover new music every year with hundreds of songs from all over Europe. I've been watching it since 2002, since then I became a huge follower, mostly because of the interest TVE put on it with Rosa from Spain. I've attended the contest three times, in Malmö, Copenhagen and Vienna; Stockholm will be my 4th. I also attended the Junior Eurovision in Malta and Bulgaria where we lived an amazing experienced thanks to all delegations and PBS/BNT organising team.
