Eurovision entry for Spain: Fernando Alonso's ex with a song picked by fans
By:

SPAIN'S Eurovision entry has been chosen and will be performed by the band fronted by Formula One ace Fernando Alonso's ex-girlfriend on May 18.

El Sueño de Morfeo has been a regular presence in the top 10 in Spain for nearly a decade and has several best-selling albums under its belt.

Lead singer Raquel del Rosario, 30, used to be romantically-linked with Formula One ex-World Champion Fernando Alonso when they met in his native region of Asturias after Raquel had moved there from her home in the Canary Islands to follow her music career.

The other members of the trio are David Feito and Juan Luis Suárez.

They put their choice of song to the vote among their fans, giving three possibles, and the overwhelming favourite transpired to be Contigo hasta el final ('with you until the end').

El Sueño de Morfeo's typical style is fast-paced pop-rock with heavy influences of traditional Celtic music, a nod to the folk tunes of their home region of Asturias, and neighbouring Galicia.

This year's Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Malmö, Sweden, after Loreen won in 2012 by a huge margin with the catchy club hit Euphoria, a track that shot to number one in several countries, including Spain, within just weeks of the show.

No Spanish entry has won the contest for decades, although 2012's Pastora Soler, a Sevilla-born solo artist with a long history of chart-topping flamenco and ballad tracks, came a very creditable 10th.

The three years before saw wins by Norway – Alex Rybaks, in 2009 – Germany in 2010, and Azerbaijan in 2011.
