Let the drama begin! Spain has revealed the 17 competing songs still in the race for their national selection — aka the Eurovision Gala of Operación Triunfo. It’s expected to happen in January.
Only three of them will make it to the Eurovision gala via the public vote. Yes, that’s the same public that is expected to make an informed decision after only hearing a one-minute snippet of each demo. Laughable.
A jury will select the other seven entries, and then who knows what will happen in the always surprising Spanish Eurovision selection.
Before the sound problems, screaming, cries and people giving the finger, we want to know your opinion (politely, if you please). Which three songs should qualify to the Eurovision gala?[polldaddy poll=10197137]
How does the Eurovision selection process work?
Spain’s RTVE — as always — changed the process by which they’re 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 deadline. Keep in mind that these are just demos, not the final versions, so judge them on their potential.
The three most popular songs will 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 songs’ composers and producers on the final versions of their songs.
