Rotterdam, 13 May 2021
We are remaining with you through the late hours. Our final report on Spain is included below!
Act: Blas Cantó
Song: “Voy a quedarmé”
Grand Final: 22 May 2021
Position in Running Order: Unknown
We’ll keep this short as it’s getting late for us. Blas Canto exceeded our expectations today. He added a nice beat to his song, yanking up its tempo signficantly; Blas was accompanied on the stage by a giant full moon, an expression of his loneliness and grief (‘Voy a quedarme’ is about his grandmother dying from Covid-19), on which red lights were projected by the end.
The colour palette starts of dark and blue, a colour scheme associated with sadness, but by the end, the sun rises and golden light shines through. I believe the intent is to show “the light at the end of the tunnel”, to illustrate that, no matter how deep your grief gets, at the end of the day hope strings eternal.
Currently, Spain rests at the bottom of the odds, but it looks like they aren’t quite ready to give up. We’re looking forward to seeing what fate has in store for them.
