Spain – Operación Triunfo Eurovision Gala 2019

    OT2018 contestants

    Buckle up, it's going to be a LONG night as RTVE picks the song to represent Spain at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest.

    Once again, the singer comes from the reality talent show 'Operacion Triunfo' - a bunch of hormonal teenagers get locked in a house and made to sing until viewers tire of them. This year, the singers have been matched with ten songs through a complex system that combined viewer votes and the opinions of that Eurovision favourite, music experts.

    Spanish Eurovision selection shows have never been known to edit the crud, so if you plan on following this live (links below), you're best booking a late start ... or better yet, take Monday off.

    Here's the shortlist:

    • Muérdeme - María
    • Hoy vuelvo a reír otra vez - Noelia
    • La clave - Natalia
    • No puedo más - Famous
    • La venda - Miki
    • Todo bien - Marilia
    • Nadie se salva - Natalia y Miki
    • Hoy soñaré - Sabela
    • Qué quieres que haga - Julia
    • Se te nota - Carlos Right

    María, Noelia and Miki have emerged as early favourites. The songs preview in full online from Friday.
