Alfred & Amaia have won Operación Triunfo Gala Eurovision with the song ‘Tu Cancion’ and will be the artists that represent Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon. Alfred & Amaia got the most points from the Spanish public, who decided the outcome of the show in a 100% televote.
The couple stole the show from the start. However they were up against tough competition from Aitana and Ana Guerra with their songs “Arde” and “Lo Malo”. The competition was intense with all five remaining members of the Operacion Triunfo academy going up against each other as soloists and as groups to determine which song was best for Spain. We followed it in a liveblog, which you can read back here!
The winner was decided by 100% televote and the Spanish audience chose Alfred & Amaia with 43% of the vote.
This is the Spanish Eurovision 2018 entry:
Alfred and Amaia have been the tabloid winners from the beginning, earning far more media attention due to their on screen and off screen relationship than any of the other candidates in the process. The song “Tu Cancion” is a love ballad that is sleepy and romantic. Similar to Salvador Sorbal’s winning song from 2017. The Operacion Triunfo revival in Spain has been an astronomical success and expectations on the pair for Eurovision are extremely high. The couple will perform in the grand final of Eurovision in Lisbon on the 12th May 2018.
