The 2018 National Final season is very ‘latina’. Different latin vibes are conquering Europe’s favourite TV show.
From Norway to Moldova, and of couse Spain. We can find reggaeton in various nations. We will leave here just some examples:

Spain is a country where tis type of music is so popular, and we could see this music in Lisbon as FórmulaTV has published that RTVE received more than 200 songs from various genres. Reggaeton could be one.
We have to know that the Despacito phenomena has caused a rise of reggaeton’s popularity worldwide. Of course, this increase has had consequences in Europe, making the National Finals for the Eurovision Song Contest a kind of a shop window for this music.
