Ana Guerra Agoney OT finalists finalist

Ay mamá! Spain’s OT is entering its most crucial week and tomorrow night we’ll know who the last finalist is. Ana War or Agoney, one of the Canarians will be the last candidates to Eurovision and we’re DYING to know.

21-year-old Agoney has a smooth and soft voice, which at times reaches the highest heights. He does the falsetto, he can sing and dance at the same time and he’s got class. Give him anything, from a pop banger to a power ballad, he’ll slay it. Look at him last week, rocking the stage à la Sertab Erener!

Agoney – “Eloise” at Gala 11

Ana War brings the Latin flavour to this year’s field. She’s given the most energetic performances of the year and even managed to survive Fleur East’s “Sax” and Celia Cruz’s “La negra tiene tumbao”

Ana Guerra – “La negra tiene tumbao” at Gala 10

Who should become the last Operación Triunfo finalist?

We also want to know your opinion. Who deserves the spot? Have Agoney’s vocal flourishes conquered you? Or are you convinced by Ana’s Latin flavour?

Are you ready for the songs?

Once Gala 12 is finished and the top five acts are confirmed, on Tuesday RTVE will reveal the songs the top five will be performing as potential Eurovision entries.

At this point, it’s unclear whether we’ll get one song for each contestant or more, as both RTVE and fan favourite couple Alfred and Amaia have been teasing us with a possible duo.

The songs will be revealed on a special Eurovision show that will be streamed on RTVE.es on Tuesday from 14.30 CET. There, Raoul, Cepeda, Nerea, Roi and either Ana or Agoney will listen to the songs together with Zahara, a well-known singer in Spain.

Amaia & Aitana – “Con las ganas” at Gala 4

Zahara had expressed previously her desire to write a song for Amaia after she sang her song “Con las ganas” with Aitana in Gala 4. However, the singer explained that she sent one song and it wasn’t selected. She recently had her first child and that left her almost no time for songwriting.

Another artist whose songs haven’t been chosen is Eurovision 2016 alum Barei, who wrote a total of 10 songs for OT. She told fans in a live Instagram stream that her songs were rejected, but she’s not mad about it: “there has to be room for other songwriters”.

She also revealed that Aitana was her favourite, although she didn’t write for her as RTVE required Spanish lyrics and Barei believes that Aitana should sing in English.

Who is your favourite? Who should make the final? Ana or Agoney? Tell us in the comment section below!

First of all I would like to say fantastic blog!
I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear
your mind before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying
to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
Thanks!

I love Agoney! I really hope he gets a shot at the final. With a good song he could do so well at Eurovision.

I prefer Agoney. He’s a bit histrionic and shouty but could do better than Ana Guerra (and he deserves to be in the final). Though I prefer Amaia or Aitana. I’m really looking forward to listen to the songs. Big names are involved, so that should mean there is some quality this year.

It’s a pity Raoul isn’t there. Such an unfair elimination.

Ana War definitely!
Agoney is the typical Eurovision cliché from the 2000s. We don’t need more of that.

What do you mean by “Eurovision cliche”? I’m pretty confused about that. It seems like people who don’t like seeing Agoney be in the Top 5 use that as a reason without actually expounding as to why it is a “cliche”.

She reminds me of Mirela and we already know how much Spanish people love these kind of acts. My personal favourite is Agoney, he is absolutely amazing, the voice, the stage presence, he just needs the right song for Eurovision and that’s it. But I can already foresee what is going to happen tonight (unfortunately)

Ana can’t sing. Agoney is not my fav either, but I think its clear that he’s better cinger.
Neither of them had a lot of iconic acts, so i don’t really care, anyway.

I believe that Agoney is the cheap copy of Conchita Wurst, his style is very old fashionable un Eurovisión. I hope Ana Guerra reaches the final because it’s a bomb on stage

ANA WAR! Her sass and attitude are everything. However, if Agoney makes it through though I won’t be mad about it because both have had interesting paths on this competition. He should be in the Final just like Ana, but the whole “Agoney to Eurovision” is THE WRONG THING. Luckily, Cepeda didn’t make it all the way here! It would’ve been worst. 2016 & 2017 have proved everyone that to win Eurovision, singers must connect with their songs some way, somehow, make them their own and connect with both juries and people. Falsettos and high notes are NOT that important… Read more »

I am loving OT! Agoney is my fave of these two (and I support his pursuit of his Eurovision dream), but I’d love to see Miriam at Eurovision.

Tbh, there is a part of me that would have liked an all-A final five, but that’s not possible now! 🙁

Are you a huge (Junior)Eurovision fan? Do you like listening to national final songs? Do you like listening to foreign music? Are you an active Snapchat user? If you are, add foreignmusicx on Snapchat! I am gonna create a Snapchat group so we can discuss our favorite songs, share our opinion and exchange songs!? 🙂

I voted Agoney! Good luck Spain.
And btw, Mercy from France should be disqualified for the same reason why EBU told Salvador to not wear that ”sos refugees” sweater anymore. No more political songs like 1944, and Amir said Mercy is political song.

How is “Mercy” a political song? It tells a very human story.

And Jamala said is a personal story. How long will we accept this?
It’s a shame and very lazy. Some people are real entertainers, but they have to lose to a lazy song that exploits sad stories. Is all Europe brain dead?
