Last year's Eurovision Song Contest winner Euphoria by Loreen sold well in Denmark. So well that it ended up being the 7th best selling song of the year in the country that went on to winning this year's contest. Some compilation albums from previous Eurovision participants also sold well.
The composer, producer and performer Juan Carlos Calderón died yesterday in Madrid after suffering a heart failure at the age of 74. He was the author of four of the Spanish entries at the Eurovision Song Contest in the 70s and 80s; Eres Tú, Tú Volverás, La Fiesta Terminó and Nacida Para Amar.
After becoming #4 in the 1970 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Gwendolyne, Julio Iglesias has been traveling the globe for more than 40 years, selling more than 300 million albums, earning 2600 gold and platinum records, making him the most loved Spanish singer ever. He has now released this double album called 1.
Spanish crooner Julio Iglesias is currently immersed in his European tour visiting nearly a dozen countries. A few days ago at a concert he gave in the capital of the Czech Republic the audience had the opportunity to enjoy an outstanding duet with another former Eurovision entrant, Karel Gott.
The concerts of the legendary Julio Iglesias - the idol of generations of women the world over - took place in five different Spanish cities during August as part of the singer's world tour. During the course of the 40 years of his musical career, the singer has recorded more than 70 albums. EuroVisionary attended the final concert in his native country.
Spain just finished their first heat of Destino Eurovisión in the search for who can wave the Spanish flag in Düsseldorf.

You can watch it tonight at 22:15 CET on TVE-1 where the artists will sing songs like Fly On The Wings Of Love, Wild Dances and Non Ho L'Età and of course several Spanish entries.
