Rodolfo Chikilicuatre, the character created ad hoc by commercial broadcaster La Sexta to enter the Spanish 2008 preselection, will disappear from the TV screens tomorrow. Rodolfo will make his very last appearance on the Buenafuente show, the programme that gave birth to him, tomorrow evening.
Rodolfo Chikilicuatre shot to fame back in February, when he applied to enter the Spanish preselection Salvemos Eurovisión, aired on TVE on March 8th. Rodolfo managed to win the majority of votes online via Myspace.com as well as the telephone votes the evening of the national final.
Thus, Rodolfo Chikilicuatre won the right to represent Spain in Belgrade with the song Baila el chiki chiki. His comical act finished 16th on May 24th, the best result for Spain since 2004. Before his performance in Eurovision, Rodolfo had a very busy agenda, full of TV appearances and other gigs. It seems now that Rodolfo Chikilicuatre has accomplished his mission.
The Buenafuente show, tomorrow at 00:00 CET on La Sexta, will see the very last appearance of Rodolfo on TV.
