RTVA, the Andorran broadcaster, has announced the details of the preselection process for the country's next representative in the Eurovision Song Contest. Passaport a Moscou, a three program series, will present the artists to the public leading to the national final on 4th February.

Passaport a Moscou will be aired on the next three Wednesdays at 21.30 CET and it will be hosted by Meri Picard who will also host the final. Each show will feature one of the three artists bidding to represent Andorra in Moscow. The first one to be presented will be Susanne Georgi with Get a life, followed by Mar Capdevila with Passió obsessiva (Obsessive Passion) on the 21st and finally by Lluís Cartes with Exhaust (Exhausted), on Wednesday 28th January.

The shows will present the artists' lives and personalities, the songs but also, as RTVA aims to showcase the Andorran music scene, local artists will be presented as well. A half hour Eurovision special will also be included in the program each week, showing former Andorran Eurostars today through funny clips.

The voting for the Andorran public's favourite will start as early as the first Passaport a Moscou programme. The viewers will have the opportunity to vote during all three shows and the final which will be held at the Apolo Andorra Hall, in Andorra la Vella on 4th February at 21.30 CET. The final winner, though, will be decided by the televote results from the four shows as well as jury vote at a 50-50 split.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
