“The Voice,” Last Year’s Most-Watched Music Talent Show

Moreover, the show successfully finished its season finale with a record for the season: it was the absolute ratings leader with a 20.8% share and the most followed among the top shows offered with 2,704,000 viewers; its best finale on Antena 3 and its best data since February 12, 2019.
And during this latest edition, the Antena 3 show continued to draw an average 18.3% share of the audience on Friday nights with 2,308,000 viewers.
The talent show grew ratings among its target audience, the most valued viewers for advertisers, reaching an 18.5% audience share. It did outstandingly well among young audiences, with an impressive 24.3%, and among female audiences (19.9%).
With over 25 million records sold throughout his career, Alejandro Sanz is the Spanish artist with the most Grammy Awards in history, having amassed four and 25 Latin Grammy Awards. In 2017, the Latin Recording Academy honored him as Person of the Year to recognize his career and significant philanthropical contributions.
From his debut in 1991 ("Viviendo Deprisa") to his latest record ("#ElDisco," 2019), Alejandro Sanz has released 18 albums, and they have all obtained multiple Platinum Records in Spain, Latin America, and the United States.
Throughout his career, Alejandro Sanz has collaborated with some of the most renowned national and international artists, and, among other prestigious distinctions, he has received a Gold Medal of Merit in Fine Arts from the Spanish Ministry of Culture, a Vision Award from the White House through the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, and the ASCAP Award for his invaluable contributions to Latin music. In 2013, the prestigious Berklee University (in Boston, U.S.) named Sanz Doctor Honoris Causa in recognition of his contributions to international culture and music.
Alejandro Sanz has also been recognized as a social activist for his strong commitment to non-governmental organizations such as Save the Children, Greenpeace, and Doctors Without Borders. As a pioneer in the use of social media, Sanz has over nine million followers on Twitter, eight million on Facebook, and six million on Instagram, building bridges between Spain and the Americas thanks to his global reach.
Alejandro Sanz's relationship with his fans was incredibly close throughout 2020 since the beginning of the pandemic. In March, he spontaneously went on YouTube to offer his first performance on a digital platform: #LaGiraSeQuedaEnCasa (“#TheTourIsStayingHome”), which some five million people have seen to date.
A week later, on March 21, he released the song #ElMundoFuera, which also marked the start of preparation for a documentary film with the same title where the artist offers a fresh perspective on the historic events experienced this year. Everyone in the world is welcome to use this platform to share their videos and their most personal vision of confinement. The project received 4,500 videos totaling over 1,200 hours of footage, making it the biggest collaborative project by any Spanish-speaking artist. This unprecedented audiovisual journey is based on real-life first-person portraits. In the ensuing flood of emotions and hope, Alejandro Sanz's creativity, education, and music coexist in a film in which we can all see ourselves reflected in some way: “El Mundo Fuera” (“The World Out There”).
Luis Fonsi, an international artist, musician, songwriter, and producer from Puerto Rico, is one of his generation's leading Latin Music figures with a successful career spanning more than 22 years.
From his debut album “Comenzaré” (1998) to his most recent studio album “Vida” (2019), Fonsi has broken multiple sales records and topped the international radio charts. His unique, undeniable talent and an extensive list of radio hits have made him one of the most influential and successful artists in music, breaking language barriers, crossing borders, and captivating millions of fans worldwide.
He has won multiple gold, platinum, and diamond records, as well as some of the most prestigious awards in the music industry, including four Grammy nominations, five Latin Grammys, 12 Billboard Latin Music Awards, five Billboard Awards, 17 Premios Juventud, two American Music Awards, two Teen Choice Awards, Billboard Spirit of Hope Award, among others. In addition to these distinctions, Fonsi broke seven Guinness World Records thanks to the international appeal of his hit song “Despacito.”
His ninth album, “Vida,” debuted at Number 1 on Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart and became a certified double diamond album with over 1.3 million copies sold in the U.S. alone. Four of the singles from “Vida,” including “Despacito,” featuring Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber; “Échame La Culpa,” featuring Demi Lovato; “Calypso,” featuring Stefflon Don, and “Impossible,” featuring Ozuna, hit #1 on the Billboard charts. Since its release in February 2019, “Vida” has amassed nominations for the GRAMMIES, Latin GRAMMIES, Latin American Music Awards, the Premio Lo Nuestro award, and the Billboard Latin Music Awards, to name a few.
After conquering the world with his album VIDA, Fonsi has kept releasing hit singles that are still in high rotation on the charts, including "Date La Vuelta," with Nicky Jam and Sebastian Yatra, "Girasoles," "Perfecta," with Farruko, and "Vacío," with Rauw Alejandro. And he's also been featured on songs by other artists, including Carlos Arroyo's "La Puerta" and "Pues" by R3hab and Sean Paul.
Over the months of February and March, Fonsi was chosen as "battle advisor" for American singer/songwriter Kelly Clarkson's team on "The Voice," which aired on NBC.
For the past 15 years, Fonsi has served as the spokesperson for St. Jude's “Gracias y Dar” campaign among the Hispanic community. After the devastating Hurricane Maria, the international artist has worked intensely through the Luis Fonsi Foundation to help the victims, donating basic necessities and medicine, as well as helping to build housing in the community of La Perla.
Malú is undoubtedly one of the most vital female voices in Spanish pop. She has one of the most consolidated and respected professional careers in Spain, thanks to her hit albums and tours. She has won numerous awards and distinctions, sold over two million copies, won twenty-two Platinum albums, two Latin Grammy nominations, five 40 Principales Awards, the Ondas Award for Best Artist of the Year, 15 Dial Awards –making her the Spanish artist to have won the most awards– and the Medal of Andalusia, among others.
Malú stands out for having one of the best voices on the Spanish scene and also, above all, for her powerful and carefully prepared live performances, with which she has toured every major stage to sold-out audiences from the start. She broke records with her “Tour Sí” tour, becoming the only Spanish female artist to fill the WiZink Center four times on the same tour. The tour drew over 450,000 people in 2014 and about 600,000 throughout the whole tour, making it the most widely seen tour at the time. In November 2015, Malú presented her album, “Caos,” a highly positive, energetic album that almost seems like it was recorded live and became Number 1 in the albums and singles charts with pre-sales alone.
After her latest album, “Oxígeno,” with which she once again conquered the sales charts, Malú is currently working on her next project, which is slated to be released later this year. We’ll have more news about this new long-awaited record soon, but it’ll no doubt help her continue to captivate and thrill her audience.
Malú has also been recognized for her involvement in various charitable causes, actively collaborating with organizations such as the Red Cross, UNICEF, Save the Children, and the AECC (Spanish Association Against Cancer). She is also an animal-rights activist and has collaborated with Mascoteros Solidarios, among other associations. Malú has served as the face of major international brands such as Swarovski, Fluchos, and L'Oreal Paris, and she also has her own fragrance, launched by Puig.
Pablo Alborán has sold more albums than any other artist in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018, and 2020. With this background, the artist has already established himself as one of the most successful singers of all time. His albums have topped the charts, and he has won 43 platinum records throughout his career.
The artist already has 19 Latin Grammy nominations, 2 Grammy Awards nominations, and a Goya Award (2016) for Best Original Song for the theme song for "Palmeras en la Nieve." Pablo has amassed 11 40 Principales Awards, and eight awards at the Viña del Mar Festival, among other distinctions, received over the years throughout his career.
His latest album, “Vértigo,” was Number 1 on the sales charts for four consecutive weeks and closed 2020 as the best-selling physical album in our country. The Spanish artist keeps breaking records and conquering new fans as the main protagonist of this new season.
"Vértigo" contains 11 unreleased songs and an acoustic version of Pablo's first single, "Si Hubieras Querido." And between some of these songs, he offers us fragments of sound that weave the songs together to create a unique connection in his new work. The album was produced by Julio Reyes, whose prestige is widely recognized throughout the Americas (Alejandro Sanz, Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin...) and with whom Pablo has worked before. And this time, Pablo Alborán has co-produced several songs, two of them with Federico Vindver (Coldplay, Kanye West...).
Recorded over the past year between Miami and Madrid, Pablo has managed to put together a repertoire of great songs, surprising us yet again with profoundly emotional and captivating compositions that showcase the Malaga native's versatility and restlessness with different rhythms and musical styles.
