A few moments ago RTVE confirmed that Levi Díaz will represent Spain at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2021. The contest will take place on December 19 in Paris.
Levi Díaz is a 13-year-old Catalan singer born in Cornellá de Llobregat (Barcelona), popularized after his victory in the sixth edition of La Voz Kids, representing the Melendi team. During his time on the program he has had the opportunity to sing with singers of great recognition in the Spanish music scene, such as Pablo López, David Bisbal or Beret.
His musical style is defined as modern pop and his musical idol is Frank Sinatra. His motto was ‘never stop fighting for your dreams’, given that the artist tried to participate in the 2019 contest and failed to pass the auditions blindly. However, now he is the current winner of the latest edition of Musical Talent.
It should be remembered that the Spanish delegation will work in the event with a recently renewed organization, since since August the delegation’s leadership is headed by journalist Eva Mora, who has a history of more than two decades in front of newscasts both on La 1 de TVE, as well as on Telemadrid and on channel 24h.
Eva has attended the event as a special envoy to her on five occasions, between 2012 and 2016. In addition, she broadcast the ‘Eurovision: Europe Shine A Light’ in 2020 and the Junior Eurovision in 2020.
The delegation’s working group will be directly linked to Amalia Martinez de Velasco, director of general content for Radio Televisión Española. This working group will be coordinated by Ana María Bordas, former head of the delegation.
SPAIN IN JUNIOR EUROVISION
In 2019 Spain returned to the European competition after 13 years of absence. This will be Spain’s seventh participation in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, which TVE will face with a lot of energy to try to maintain the good record it achieved in our six previous participations.
• 2003: Sergio – ‘Desde el cielo’ -> Second position.
• 2004: María Isabel – ‘Antes muerta que sencilla’ -> First position.
• 2005: Antonio José – ‘Te traigo flores’ -> Second position.
• 2006: Dani Fernández – ‘Te doy mi voz’ -> Fourth position.
• 2019: Melani – ‘Marte’ -> Third position.
• 2020: Soleá – ‘Palante’ -> Third position.
And although the result is not the important thing, will Spain remain in the Top 5 this year? The truth is that we are in a change of trend in the way of Spain in the different events of the Eurovision family and they are working with great enthusiasm.
