Lydia Rodríguez Fernández (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈliðja]; born 1980 in Madrid), better known as Lydia, is a Spanish pop singer.


When Lydia was 16 years old, she released her first album, Lydia, which went platinum in Spain. She became famous after dedicating a song to her musical idol Alejandro Sanz. In 1998 she released her second album, that became gold in Spain.

She represented Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest 1999 with the song "No quiero escuchar" (I don't want to listen), finishing last with one point. Her colorful dress, designed by Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada, attracted much attention and criticism from the Spanish media and spectators.

In 2002 she released her last album as solo singer. In 2007, she starred in the musical Jesus Christ Superstar in several Spanish cities and other projects. In 2008, she replaced Sole Giménez as singer for the Spanish multi-platinum band Presuntos Implicados.[1] The first album that she released with this band, Será (It will be), was nominated for the Latin Grammy Awards 2009.
