"Quédate conmigo" (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈkeðate komˈmiɣo], "Stay with me") is a song performed by Spanish singer Pastora Soler and composed by a Swedish-Spanish team consisting of Thomas G:son, Tony Sánchez-Ohlsson and Erik Bernholm. It represented Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012.
Background[edit | edit source]
On 21 December 2011, Soler was announced by RTVE as the Spanish representative in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012. Soler and her team picked four songs to be in contention for the Eurovision Song Contest, and she sang three of these at the Spanish national final. "Quédate conmigo", together with "Tu vida es tu vida", was selected directly by Soler for the national final, whereas "Ahora o nunca" was selected through an online vote over "Me despido de ti". Unlike "Tu vida es tu vida", "Quédate conmigo" was not a song from Soler's latest album Una mujer como yo, she chose it from over 200 proposals she received through her record company. According to Soler, it became her favourite the moment she listened to it.
At the national final, which took place on 3 March 2012, the winning song was determined by 50% televoting and 50% jury vote. "Quédate conmigo" got the highest score by both the juries and televote, and thus was chosen to represent Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012.
Eurovision 2012[edit | edit source]
"Quédate conmigo" was Spain's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2012. By representing a "big five" country, it automatically qualified for the final on 26 May 2012.
