He was nominated for Best Spanish New Artist on the 2012 edition of Los Premios 40 Principales, losing out to Auryn.

Xuso served as the warm-up act for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez in Spain.[4] In 2013-2014, he participated in the third season of Spanish TV show Tu cara me suena (Your Face Sounds Familiar), where famous artists have to impersante iconic singers on stage.
