Amaia Romero and Alfred García were chosen to represent Spain at this year's Eurovision Song Contest. The duo will compete with the song "Tu canción", which several eurofans accuse of being the result of plagiarism.
Adored by the Spanish public, who put them at the top of the show, however, there are those who criticize this choice, accusing the author of the subject of plagiarism. The accusations have been made over the past few days and have quickly gained repercussions in the country's media.
Cibernauts point out several similarities between "Tu canción" and "Nuvole Bianche", a piano theme by the Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi, present in the album "Una mattina", published in 2004. Seven years later Einaudi presented the theme again to the public, inviting Alessia Tondo to sang it.

With the strength and passion that Pastora Soler says "I love you" she comebacks with a new album - La calma.
The new single "La tormenta" is the preview of her new album. Pastora sings to the search of reconciliation, the reunion with a love that sometimes is not clear if it is a person, life or the music itself, the one that she left by its own decision on December 1, 2014.
It does so by saying that "we can still reinvent ourselves without realizing it", and asks to be embraced, "so strong that it hurts, so much that it rains". "La tormenta", an advance of the most anticipated return of the spanish female singer is composed by Tony Sánchez Olshonn, creator of what is already one of the fundamental themes of his career, "Quedate Conmigo".
What is clear is that "La tormenta" will be indispensable for its audience in the concerts of their new tour, which will start in style on November 19, no less than at the Teatro Real in Madrid. "Embrace me as if it were the one I always lost," says Pastora. Whoever sings it, only she knows. Although what comes after "The Storm" we always know what it is ...

Simone the Oliveira (Portugal 65/69) and Paloma San Basilio (Spain 85) will take part in two very different Musicals as special moments for their careers.
Paloma San Basilio will be Norma Desmond on "Sunset Boulevard", the Spanish version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical that will premiere on December 27 in Tenerife. "Sunset Boulevard" is a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber (with Don Black script ) based on Billy Wilder's film "Twilight of the Gods." It premiered in London in 1993 with Patti LuPone starring, and a year later appeared in Los Angeles and Broadway with Glenn Close in the lead role
The idea is that, after its Tenerife premiere, in the first months of 2018 a small tour of six Spanish cities will take place in September or October to open a season in a theater on the Gran Vía in Madrid.
In the 80's Paloma played the role of Evita in the Show with the same name.
Simone de Oliveira will take part in the Musical with her name and inspired on her but SIMONE, THE MUSICAL is much more than a musical in its own name, where its history, filled with characters like Ary dos Santos or Carlos do Carmo that also took part in Eurovision like author and singer, respectively.
At age 79, Simone de Oliveira still has dreams to come true and many memories to share. From iconic themes such as "Desfolhada" or "Sol de Inverno", Simone will unveil herself and, once again, publicly surrender herself for what she believes, for what she feels like Destination, and makes it an example cherished by all the Portuguese.
Simone, will premiere on september 23th at Lisbons Tivoli.
