Who is Carlos Higes?

How did he get selected?

The Spanish broadcaster decided to select their Junior Eurovision 2022 singer and song via an internal selection for a fourth year running. RTVE held an open casting call for potential Junior Eurovision candidates, where a total of 95 acts auditioned.

These 95 acts were whittled down to just 10, and these 10 attended the Prado del Rey studios in Madrid for the final round of auditions. The contestants had to sing two songs – one of their own choice, and another song that had represented Spain in either Eurovision or Junior Eurovision.

Señorita was chosen internally from over 200 song submissions sent to the Spanish broadcaster by songwriters and producers from Spain and beyond.

The song is a very upbeat and energetic pop song that has latin and flamenco influences. It talks about inviting young people to party, have fun and to just enjoy themselves.

The official musiv video, directed by Pepo Alfaro, was fimed in Carlos’ hometown of Valencia.

Spanish/English

Llevo una imagen dentro de mí
Un verano donde todo es reír
Arena blanca llena de sol
 
Y en esa playa apareces tú
Bajo la luna llena de luz
Cuando se escucha un ritmo a tambor
 
Baila conmigo, señorita
La música es infinita
Come on and give me tu sonrisa
From Valencia to Ibiza
 
I think of you de noche y día
We gonna sing la melodía
Mi corazón te necesita
Qué bonita es la vi-vida
 
Baila conmigo, señorita, ya-ya ya-ya-ya
Baila la-la la-la-la
Todos juntos,

I carry an image inside of me1
A summer with nothing but laughter
And sun-filled white sand
 
And on that beach you appear
Under the moon full of light
With the rhythm of a drum

The music is infinite
Come on and give me your smile
From Valencia to Ibiza

I’m going to ask the stars
For a dream where I want to live
My whole life and not wake up
(We’ll never wake up)
 
It’s that in words I don’t know how to say
What this rhythm makes me feel
A new world to explore
 
Dance with me, young lady
The music is infinite
Come on and give me your smile
From Valencia to Ibiza

There are no limits nor borders
 
Tomorrow will always come
Now nothing’s the matter
With this rhythm, party, let’s dance!
