1. Updated 4 January 2019: It’s getting closer! Spain has got its prospective Eurovision entries down to ten, and later this month there will be a gala Operación Triunfo show to choose the winner which will represent the country in Tel Aviv in May. There is a youtube video excerpting all the songs HERE … and for me it’s Noelia or Sabela, but who knows?! The ten are:

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

    Spain’s official Eurovision website is HERE, and there’s also THIS youtube channel.

    Original post 4 October 2018: Spanish TV has issued a call for songwriters to submit potential entries to Eurovision 2019 in Tel Aviv. RTVE confirms, as I reported HERE, the country’s chosen song for this Eurovision will be chosen through the current season of Operación Triunfo and will be sung by one of the contestants taking part. The song selection process will permit any composer to submit an original potential entry, and composers can even suggest particular contestants to sing it though RTVE doesn’t guarantee that the winning song will get the particular contestant the composer might name.

    An evaluation committee comprising two people from the Eurovision fan associations OGAE and AEV, one from RTVE Digital and two from the music industry will choose a total of 10 songs from among those received to go to an online public vote: their top three choices will be guaranteed to be included in a special Eurovision gala in January with the other final selection of songs made by the academy professors and RTVE representatives. After the gala, the public will be entirely responsible for choosing Spain’s entry. The rules and regulations for submissions are HERE.
