Last night the voting closed in the public online poll for RTVE’s Operacion Triunfo and the first three acts have been determined for the Eurovision Gala show in a few weeks’ time, the show that will choose Spain’s Eurovision artist and song for 2019.
The show concluded before Christmas with Famous being announced the winner of the reality singing competition. However the show is set to return in the new year with the Eurovision gala portion of the Contest and he was not one of the three chosen acts to go to the Eurovision Gala show. Rather it seems to be all about the ladies! The first three acts making it to the final are: María with fan favourite ‘Muérdeme’, Noelia’s ‘Hoy vuelvo a reír otra vez’ and ‘La clave’ by Natalia.
The remaining 14 songs will now face an expert jury who will select half of them to join the three publicly chosen songs for Operacion Triunfo Eurovision Gala!
