We can feel the #eurodrama coming and that’s because Spain’s broadcaster RTVE just released short demos of the 17 songs that hope to compete in this years special gala OT Eurovisión.
The grand final of OT 2018 just crowned Famous as the winner but the fight is far from over, as attention turns to Eurovision now. There are fifteen solo songs and two duets but there can only be one winner when we reach the euro-climax in January.
After Almaia’s love story enchanted Spain but didn’t resonate with voters at Eurovision 2018, Spain is turning the page on yet another unsuccessful attempt at Europe’s biggest music competition. The OT net is being cast wider this time, hoping to find the ideal entry for Tel Aviv.
How does the Eurovision selection process work?
Spain — as always — changed the process in which they are selecting their song for Eurovision. This year, the OT contestants recorded one-minute demos of their songs. Those demos are available online at RTVE.es and people can vote for their top three on a daily basis until the January 2. Keep in mind these are just demos, not the final versions, so judge them in consequence.
The three most voted songs advance directly to the live show. Two board members of broadcaster RTVE, one from RTVE Digital and two OT academy professors will select seven more songs from the remaining 14.
Then at the OT Eurovision Gala, ten songs will battle for the right to represent Spain in Tel Aviv. After the ten finalists are selected, the singers will work with the song composers and producers on the final versions of their songs.
- Alba Reche – “Qué será luego?”
- Carlos Right – “Se te nota”
- Carlos Right – “Nunca fui”
- Damion – “Sale”
- Famous – “No puedo más”
- Joan and Marilia – “A tu lado”
- Julia – “Qué quieres que haga?”
- María – “Muérdeme”
- Marilia – “Todo bien”
- Marta – “Vuelve”
- Miki – “La venda”
- Miki – “El equilibrio”
- Miki and Natalia – “Nadia se salva”
- Natalia – “La clave”
- Noelia – “Hoy vuelvo a reír otra vez”
- Sabela – “Dímelo de Frente”
