Before Operación Triunfo, Miki studied guitar and piano, as well as a degree in Primary education teaching. He also was a vocalist in cover band Dalton Bang, with whom he toured Catalonia performing.[3] In 2018, Miki auditioned for the tenth series of Operación Triunfo, being one of the 18 contestants selected for the opening gala,[4] and making it to the semi-finals en route to finishing in sixth place.[5]

Miki was then one of the 13 Operación Triunfo contestants allocated songs for the show’s side competition to choose Spain’s entrant in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. He was given a total of three songs: “Nadie se salva”, a duet with Natalia Lacunza, and solo songs “El equilibrio” and “La venda“.[6] While “El equilibrio” failed to make the first cut, “Nadie se salva” and “La venda” advanced to the Eurovision Gala, making him and Lacunza the only contestants with more than one song to perform in the national final.[7] On 20 January 2019, Miki received the 34% by audience vote and was selected to represent Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with “La venda”.[8]

Miki was the last to perform at the Eurovision final, held on 18 May 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel. He placed twenty-second out of the 26 participating countries with 54 points: 1 from the professional juries and 53 from the televote.[9]

Núñez released a single titled “Celébrate” on 28 June 2019. The single preceded the release of his first studio album, titled Amuza, on 13 September 2019.[10][11][12] It debuted at number one on the Spanish Albums Chart.[13] The release of the album was followed by the same-titled tour in fourteen cities across Spain.[14]
