Junior Eurovision 2022: Spain
This year Spain is being represented at Junior Eurovision 2022 by Carlos Higes with the song, 'Señorita'.
You can find details on the entry, the artist, ranking and comments from the Aussievision team and history of Spain at Junior Eurovision can all be found below.
The artist: Carlos Higes
Carlos Higes will be representing Spain at only eleven-years-old. Carlos is a singer from the popular city of Valencia and was announced on the Spanish network RTVE. Carlos made his public debut as a singer when he captured the hearts of audiences tuning into Spain's version of The Voice Kids by singing his version of 'This Is Me' from The Greatest Showman.
When he's not singing for Junior Eurovision, he does modelling and plays piano, whilst also being an avid futsal fanatic and having a special talent at languages. Carlos says he has been a fan of Eurovision since 2016 and is excited to get this opportunity to perform.
The entry: 'Señorita'
The song is an upbeat anthem that is filled with youthful latin undertones that you can't help but dance along to. This year's entry brings a slight adjustment from Spanish entry tradition, as Carlos will be the first artist to sing in both Spanish and English. Carlos spoke with RTVE about how he wants his entry to make everyone smile and dance. With the combination of urban rhythm and simple lyrical structure, it's pretty hard to not be humming to it straight after listening to it.
Choreographer Vicky Gómez has spoken out about how to best create a dance that would show off the playful energy of both the amazing performers and the song itself. Gómez has talked about how he wanted the dance to help make the song more memorable with RTVE, highlighting how it should be "the most tiktokable" with this dance battle that is less of a battle than a small party between the four girls and boys.

Comments from the Aussievision team
"I think this song stands out for how fun and upbeat it seems. It wouldn't sound too out of place in the adult version of the contest. It seems like it's fun and enjoyable and sounds like something the young folk would enjoy these days. I think this easily stages itself as high energy and sounds like it could easily be a winner." ~ Tim
"I can’t help but do the little dance." ~ Olivia
