Listen to a snippet of the Spanish entry for Junior Eurovision 2022
RTVE has just published a snippet of the song Carlos Higes will perform at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. The 11-year-old artist will bring an urban-Latin track with catchy lyrics to Yerevan. The full song and music video will be revealed tonight during the broadcast of the show “Dúos Increíbles”.
Right after his announcement, Carlos started working on the song for the competition. Also, the Spanish representative has been preparing his vocals with the coach Natalia Calderón, who worked with the previous Spanish entrants Melani García, Soleá, and Levi Díaz and was one of the judges of Benidorm Fest 2022. The expert will provide Carlos with vocal training until the big final in Yerevan.
Last week, RTVE posted a few pictures of the recording and revealed the team that will be on stage with Carlos. The singer will travel to Armenia with some of his colleagues from The Voice Kids, Mario Falero, Roberta Fauteck, and Jesús Montero, the last from the 2021 edition. Just like Carlos, all three of them reached the semifinal of the shows and have been the backing voices in the studio.
