Next Saturday the big event of Eurovision 2023 takes place. It will be in the city of Liverpool (United Kingdom) despite Ukraine's victory last year. The war due to the invasion of Russia changed the location of the contest.
On this occasion, Spain will be represented by the singer Blanca Paloma with her song Eaea, a lullaby from Lorca in tribute to her grandmother.
Although some media place the Spanish representative among the candidates for victory, Spanish Eurofans also cling to the historical epic.
