Being an Operación Triunfo fan is an emotional rollercoaster. One day RTVE is teasing you with Amaia and Alfred being selected together for Lisbon, then the next day they dispel that illusion by confirming (finally!) how the Eurovision candidates will be selected. This is too intense even for the Spanish Eurovision fan standard.

There are four Operación Triunfo shows left until the series grand final on February 5. We already knew that the Eurovision show would be held on January 29. But until now, we thought we wouldn’t discover who the five Eurovision candidates were until the previous week, on the 22nd.

On Friday, RTVE announced that the four first finalists (and hence, Eurovision candidates) will be known this coming Monday. The show will change its usual format and it will no longer feature nominations.

Amaia – “Soñar contigo” at OT show 10

So here’s the plan of the evening: After all the acts have performed, the public will decide who stays of the two nominated acts: Ana Guerra or Roi. After that, we’ll have six contestants remaining.

Then, the jury will give marks to the contestants, and the three with the highest marks will become the finalists. The fourth finalist will be the teacher’s choice between the three people with the lowest score.

That means four people between Agoney, Aitana, Alfred, Amaia, Miriam and either Ana Guerra or Roi will be the first official candidates to represent Spain in Lisbon.

Ana Guerra – “La negra tiene tumbao” at OT show 10

The public will decide which one of the remaining two will make the final on show 12 (January 22). And then, on the 23rd, we (and the contestants) will finally get to know the songs. Not so complicated, eh?

Now you know how this works, we want your opinion. Which four contestants should be the first finalists of Operación Triunfo? Given only four acts will qualify, we’ve limited this poll’s vote to four choices.

What do you think of next Monday’s show? Do you think your favourites will make it to the final? Who won’t survive until the Eurovision show? Who do you want to go to Lisbon? Tell us in the comment section below!

Aitana should be the one to represent Spain!
She has the best stage presence and strenght in her eyes.
Of course she needs to improve somethings. But all of them needs to improve something.
I think Agoney is what people already expect to represent, but not different. Thats why I think Aitana should be the one to represent Spain.

This selection process is unfair to people with names not beginning from A it seems!!

I personally think that Agoney or Aitana should go to Eurovision and Amaia should win OT.

Amaia: for sure in the final Aitana: she needs to learn a lot. She doesn’t have stage presence and sounds very weak sometimes. Still she will probably make into the final Agoney: with the song he has this gala, he will probably be put through, thankfully. Roi: leaves the academy Ana Guerra: probably will reach the final Alfred: I don’t like his voice, though I know he does pretty music. Not final for me, but he will probably reach it. Miriam: I wish she could reach the final instead of Alfred, I don’t know if she will do it. PS:… Read more »

I’m starting to like her as well. Additionally, she is the most beautiful among the girls.

In my opinion, the best ones RIGHT NOW, are Miriam, Amaia and Agoney. Aitana has a lot to learn about being in stage.
