Some of the familiar names to Eurovision fandom have also submitted their entries. One of them is Ruth Lorenzo, Spanish representative in Eurovision 2014. She revealed during the gala 8 of Operación Triunfo that she has submitted songs for Spain's preselection process. Also - Brisa Fenoy, the composer of Aitana and Ana Guerra’s last year's Eurovision Gala entry Lo Malo seems to be another well-known name in the race.
Finnish singer Emma Sandström, who appeared in Finland’s national selection Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu in 2017, and San Marino's selection show 1in360 in 2018 still hopes for her Eurovision success, this time as a composer. She revealed some interesting facts about the entry she has submitted for Operación Triunfo 2018 Eurovision Gala:
"The song is gonna be in Spanish and I’m gonna sing the demo. Imagine Shakira meets Jennifer Lopez meets a little Avicii meets Spain and imagine also kind of a Eurovision slash football arena. Just an arena anyway and dancing!"
