It happened: Spain’s broadcaster RTVE will pick their Eurovision 2018 entrant amongst the Operación Triunfo 2017 contestants, and we’re overexcited about it. We would pick them all right now and take the whole lot to the Lisbon stage. Unfortunately, there are 16 of them so we can’t do it.
While 16 singers are taking part, only a maximum of six can go to Lisbon. We don’t know yet whether only one of them will go to Lisbon, or if there will be duets or even a supergroup. Over the weeks, we’ve given you some ideas.
Will it be Amaia‘s charm and her sweet voice? She’s been the audience’s favourite for three weeks now and she’s even turned into a viral phenomenon. Or could it be Alfred? He’s the artsy guy, he’s a musician turned singer and he even sang “Amar pelos dois”!
Maybe you’re a fan of Aitana? She’s consistently amongst the favourites and it’s totally deserved. There’s also Nerea, with whom you’ll fall in love if you like Disney songs. Or should it be one of the Galicians — Miriam, Roi or Cepeda — to travel to nearby Portugal?
In case you were wondering, no, Agoney‘s voice meanwhile has nothing to do with agony, despite his name. Neither does Ana Guerra, who has been constantly growing with each show. And what about a more flamenco feel, like Mireya‘s? Don’t forget about Raoul, who killed it last week with Lady Gaga’s “Million reasons”.
There are five alumns eliminated from the show so far, but they may still be eligible. Mimi and Ricky slayed the pack the week they left, while Marina‘s voice is to fall in love with. Thalía and Juan Antonio also gave their all in their last week, so they also deserve a chance!
Now, stop the chatter, and bring on the poll. Who do you want in Eurovision? You can vote for as many of them as you can, but you can do it only once!
