In 2018, she represented Spain with Alfred at the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon. They did that with the romantic duet ‘Tu Cancion’. Earlier that year, she also won the major Spanish music competition Operación Triunfo. Those interested in more music from the young Spanish artist could listen to her album ‘Pero No Pasa Nada’ since Friday 20 September.
A young talented woman
Amaia may be barely 20 years old, but in her debut album she turns out to be a real artist. Although the album is called ‘Pero No Pasa Nada’, which means ‘But Nothing Happens’, Amaia included a variation of different sounds. So, the album is full of her own rhythms, who range from slow ballads, to acoustic songs, to songs with a little more zest. In other words, Amaia can clearly handle many genres. She announced her album on her instagram page and told that she was very excited about it and that she’s really proud of the result. She thanked her crew for all the effort they’ve putted into the album.

Amaia (& Alfred) in the Eurovision Song Contest 2018
After winning the special Operacion Triumfo-show in which Spain selected its entry for Eurovision 2018, the duo Amaia & Alfred got selected with their song ‘Tu Cancion’. They turned out to be among the favourites in a very strong year. However, they couldn’t meet the high expectations unfortunately. Amaia & Alfred drew the second spot in the grand final, which is known as the least succesful startposition. In the end they finished 23rd with a total of 61 points. 43 points came from the professional juries while only 18 from the televoting, including a 12 from neighbour and host country Portugal.
