Spain – In an interview with Spanish website FormulaTV, the Spanish representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, Pastora Soler revealed her expectations and opinions about Eurovision. Pastora is very pleased to have been chosen to represent Spain in Baku, although she reveals that she felt a little afraid at first, because of the unsatisfying Spanish results in recent years. After attempts at different kinds of selections, Spain decided to choose their representative through an internal selection this year. The Spanish public will only be able to choose the entry out of several propositions in a show in February.
Pastor said, “The worst that can happen is that I return to Spain with zero points, but we believe that we will be able to deliver a good performance that is worthy of Spain.” Pastora revealed that she does not know which style her song will be in yet.However, they will choose diverse songs and the selection will range from ballads to rhythmic themes.
When asked what she felt when she saw “El Chiki-Chiki” on the Eurovision stage, Pastor said, “This performance, perhaps, was what discredited Eurovision most in Spain. Last year’s representative was fantastic, Daniel Diges, too.But perhaps, “the Chiki-Chiki” marks a major difference in the respect for the other participating artists.”
She also said that her next step was to “improve their English” for the interviews. However, she will not sing in English, despite the fact that she listens to a lot of international artists.
