Spain repeats the same national final with a totally new formula.
TVE has recently announced that they will broadcast “Objective Eurovision” (Objetivo Eurovisión) next February in La 1.
They will use two ways for selecting the artists that will participate in the Final.
Firstly, until 27th November, anonymous artists can send a song via RTVE.es, as Toñi Prieto (administrative of Programmes and entertainment of RTVE) said “We are looking for a talented artist who wants represent Spain in ESC 2017”.
The candidate songs will be published in RTVE.es, and the public can vote for their favourite, TVE’s independent jury will select 3 songs from the TOP10, these three songs will compete in a programme broadcasted in January via RTVE.es. Only the winning song (selected by the public) will qualify to national final.
Secondly, TVE’s jury will do an internal selection between known artists that will automatically qualify to the National Final.
To sum up: in the final, we will see competing professional artists selected by RTVE and another previously selected by the public via RTVE.es.
