Operacion Triunfo in Spain , the 15 yrs reunion was yesterday!!!

So last night I watch on TVE the program on the 15yrs reunion of Operacion Triunfo I in Spain. This was from the Palau in Barcelona in front of about 15K people and shown internationally on TVE Spanish television chain.

Bueno toda la musica fue en Español con algunos numerous en Inglés , todo muy bonito y sentimental.

Ok so this is part of my Spanish roots, and I have followed the program and come to know many of the participants in the original presentation and throughtout their careers. The program was like a music talent contest to find new performers of kids and young adults from all over Spain. After 15 years the folks involved decided to do a reunion with all 16 finalists.

And the best for me was this moment magical (they dated for over 3 yrs after the show 15 yrs back before splitting and now reunited, a Spanish love story).


and on the above link you can see last night remake of Escondidos too.  They are one of my two favorite singers by the way…..::)

The story of it from Wikipedia in Spanish here

Yesterday was very magical, and brought back tears on many singer participants and myself of course. The scene with Chenoa and David Bisbal was very nice and an inmense work to bring these two together again on stage.  I have the pictures , and the film on youtube all over my laptop computer. Now would they do one in another 15 years? The group is inmense in Spain, and many are known throughtout the Spanish speaking world as stars. Of course, I keep the encounter with Bisbal and Chenoa forever. Me quedo conn Bisbal y Chenoa para siempre; ya esperando otro encuentro.

Cheers and life goes on, full of goodness for all my readers.
