Already in October 2019, the RTVE audience chose Blas Cantó as the one who would represent Spain in 2020. At that time, the song chosen was Universo.

Creative director, Marvin Dietmann, says this song is “pure poetry” and that they have opted for a minimalist stage. “All this song needs is Blas Cantó as the centrepiece that keeps the song getting bigger and bigger for the audience. We only put the singer in the spotlight. No special effects are needed for this song. ”
