Lisbon 2018

Details revealed for Operación Triunfo

The Spanish broadcaster now has announced how they will select their representative for 2018. As previously announced, RTVE will use the show Operación Triunfo to find a singer for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon. 

Operación Triunfo 2017

A few weeks ago RTVE started with their show and with 16 participants. Currently, nine are still in the race to win the competition and/or represent Spain in the upcoming contest.
Before the big final of Operación Triunfo, there will be a special Eurovision gala with the top 5 of the show. The Operación Triunfo Academy teachers will select the songs for the final five. 100% televoting will decide the winner and therefore the entry for Spain. In conclusion, this also means that the winner of Operación Triunfo and the Spanish representative could be different persons.

The remaining candidates of Operación Triunfo are:

  • Agoney
  • Aitana
  • Alfred
  • Amaia
  • Ana Guerra (Ana War)
  • Cepeda
  • Miriam
  • Nerea
  • Roi

Every week the participants get judged by a three-person jury joined by a guest juror. The worst two get nominated to leave the Academy by the teachers and the jury. The televoting decides out of these two, who will leave in the end.
Most of all, do you think Spain and RTVE are on the best road to a better place in the final? Maybe top 10? Let us know in the comments below or on social media @ESCXTRA.

Hey, I'm Dominik from Germany. Watched my first Eurovision in 2003 and I was in love right away! Attended my first contest in 2011 and every contest since 2013. The same happened with Melodifestivalen. Started watching in 2006 and been to every final since 2017 and try to make it to at least one heat each year, too. After all, Melodifestivalen is the real deal ♥
