Back in January, Barbara Pravi won Eurovision France – C’est vous qui décidez! with a comprehensive lead in both the televote and the jury vote. Since then, despite being the third entry selected, she has remained one of the favourites to win the contest. Following a triumphant Spanish TV performance, Barbara has released an acoustic version of her entry.
Barbara Pravi has had a busy week, having recently made her Spanish TV debut on the show Rocío, contar la verdad para seguir viva. Following the positive reaction to this performance, she released a cover of Rocío Jurado’s “Como Una Ola”, which has amassed over 60,000 views on her Instagram.
Hot off the heels of this, she has released an acoustic version of Voilà via the official Eurovision Song Contest YouTube channel.
