With Operacion Triunfo Spain obtained the best positions in the last 20 years in the early 2000s so this is definitely good news.

Copying this from the Eurovision website.

----

Spain's entrant in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest will come from the TV show 'Operación Triunfo'. This was announced by its presenter, Roberto Leal, in the seventh live show of TVE's talent show last Monday. It was the method used to select the Spanish entries from 2002 to 2004.

The talent show Operación Triunfo, also known in Spain as OT, premiered on the Spanish broadcaster, RTVE, in 2001 with the ultimate goal of being the method for selecting the Spanish entry in the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest. The method was used again in 2003 and 2004. Its outstanding success brought a new wave of interest in the Eurovision Song Contest in Spain, so the news revealed during this week's live show have been welcomed with enthusiasm.

Betting on talent

To participate in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in neighbouring Portugal, RTVE is looking for the best possible formula, a successful proposal that would generate excitement among viewers and fans of the contest.
Operación Triunfo is a successful format, and lauched the career of Rosa López who won the first edition of the contest. She achieved seventh place with Europe's Living A Celebration in 2002, Spain's best placing in the contest in fifteen years. The format also transformed the popularity of the Eurovision Song Contest in Spain which was followed by some 13 million viewers and more than 80% of market share.

OT is now back in the prime time of Spanish Television, after several years, last October, commited to discover new talent among young performers in Spain. It has proven to be successful phenomenon once again, and is helping to train a new generation of performers.
Unlike when it was first launched, the programme has become a format that generates an intense activity in social media - it has been the trending topic every day since its premiere- establishing an emotional bond with the audience and the support of the majority of Spanish 'eurofans'.
Further news on how the Spanish 2018 Eurovision Song Contest perfomer/s and song will be selected are set to be revealed in the coming weeks!

The demo versions/versions of the contestants rehearsing the songs are all out there (in a more easy to listen to format soon potentially, live performances will be on Monday 29th anyway). From what I've seen, this duet could be the one to beat (the two people singing it being both an off-screen couple and one of them being the favorite to win the whole thing).

Despite the massive Alfred & Amaia hype, there's now a significant challenge from Ana & Aitana following the first proper performances of each song (during rehearsals on their Fame Academy live stream). Both of these have views way ahead of the other performances, but interestingly it's the two girls that have nudged ahead:





It's going to be one of these two, but if the Spanish Eurofans rally behind the girls - their vote is usually decisive when it comes to a televote such is their intensity as a fan group.

Oooh interesting, I think I slightly prefer the duet between the two girls, sounds nice and modern and latino influenced without being a rip off of Despacito.

Aitana and Ana's rehearsal video (Lo Malo) only has more views because of the controversy over their reluctancy to sing Trap/Regueatton music. They were told off by the director of the academy live because of expressing that they did not feel identified with that music style.

There is no doubt the Alfred + Amaia duet will win tomorrow evening.

Second rehearsal (better than the first one in my opinion) of Tu Cancion below:

TONIGHT'S NATIONAL FINAL...
SPAIN



Operación Triunfo

29th January 2018
Begins at 9:35pm in the UK and 10:35pm in Spain.
The show is scheduled to last 2 hours and 40 minutes.

Watch the selection via the official RTVE live stream.

Running order
Aitana - Arde
Alfred - Que Nos Sigan Las Luces
Amaia - Al Cantar
Ana Guerra - El Remedio
Miriam - Lejos De Tu Piel
Aitana & Ana Guerra - Lo Malo
Amaia & Alfred - Tu canción
Miriam & Agoney - Magia
Aitana, Alfred, Amaia, Ana Guerra & Miriam - Camina


Voting format
All 9 songs will be performed, of which 3 will advance to the superfinal. Both rounds will be determined by 100% televoting.

The favourites to win
There's not much in it in the betting odds, however the hype seems to be behind Amaia & Alfred. The two are in a relationship heavily followed by the viewers of Operación Triunfo. They've already reached #1 on Spanish iTunes after the songs were released at midnight, with another version at #8 and have the most views on YouTube.

So excited about this. It looks like Almaia & Alfred are actually going to dance a Waltz tonight which makes total sense as they keep repeating throughout the song "I feel like dancing for the first time".

'Lo Malo' is so catchy though. wub.gif

Operacion Triunfo is sort of Spain's "Star Academy" which was hugely sucessful in the early 00's and managed to get 3 top 10s in a row in Eurovision (2002, 2003 and 2004). The Spanish representative was chosen between the finalists of the reality.

This year return of OT has also been an audience success and once again one of their finalists (either alone or in a duet) will be sent to represent Spain in Eurovision.

Lo Malo debuts directly at number one in Spotify Spain. Tu Cancion enters at number 2.

Clearly represents which song will be more successful in Spain in clubs/radio airplay/charts.

Time will tell. It is quite similar to last year winner to be fair. Whether thats good or a bad thing.

It is quite sweet but I am weeping for "Lo Malo". This doesn't sound like the right thing to capitalise on the success of "Despacito"/"Reggaeton Lento"/"Mi Gente" etc
