Surprise in Spain this morning: Levi Díaz will be the Spanish representative at Junior Eurovision 2021, which will be held in Paris on 19th December. The 13-year-old singer, winner of the sixth edition of The Voice Kids’ in Spain, has been chosen internally by RTVE.
After his victory in the talent show, Levi will fulfill another of his dreams by participating in the festival. RTVE is already working on the song with which he will compete in the 19th edition of the contest.
Levi Díaz, the smile that conquered Spain
Levi Díaz is 13 years old and was born in Cornellà de Llobregat (Barcelona). He began his musical career just over a year ago with his participation in the sixth edition of ‘The Voice Kids’ in Spain, winning the contest. The style that best defines him is modern pop. His idol, above all, is Frank Sinatra, whose tone, voice and rhythm of his songs stand out, especially “Fly me to the moon”. Another of his favorite singers is Rosalía, and it is recognized that one of the songs that he listens to the most on Eurovision is “Toy”, by Netta.
After passing through ‘The Voice Kids’, Levi has published on digital platforms the songs he performed in the contest such as “Warrior”, “Alive”, “Diamonds” and “Never enough”. His victory allowed him to sign a record contract with Universal Music Spain and, currently, he combines his high school classes with his musical training with the vocal technique teacher Miguel Manzo.
His honest gaze and his indelible smile have become Levi’s hallmark and, thanks to this, he has managed to earn a place in the hearts of Spanish spectators. Now, Spain hopes that Europe will also fall in love with Levi’s voice and his sweet smile.

Spain at Junior Eurovision
Levi will be the seventh representative in the history of Spain at Junior Eurovision since its first appearance in 2003.
Unlike in the adult contest, Spain is one of the most successful countries in the children’s contest. In its first stage in the contest, Spain participated four times, where it achieved its only triumph thanks to María Isabel and “Antes muerta que sencilla” in 2004. In addition, it accumulated two second positions (Sergio, with “Desde el cielo” in 2003 and Antonio José with “Te traigo flores” in 2005) and a fourth place (Dani Fernández, with “Te doy mi voz” in 2006).
After 13 years of absence, Spain returned to Junior Eurovision with Melani and the song “Marte” in 2019. The Valencian artist made an impeccable performance on the stage in Gliwice-Silesia (Poland) and conquered the public from all over Europe. Melani took bronze with 212 points in total. In the last edition, Soleá represented Spain with the song “Palante”, an urban pop song with flamenco essence that took the Sevillian artist to third position.
