Revealing their selection process for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest last month, TVE has since been inundated with submissions for the country’s upcoming Eurovision project.

With 10 days remaining to submit entries, it will soon be down to the public to decide which act should move forward and compete in the Spanish national final in February.
A total of 30 acts will initially be shortlisted via the RTVE website in which the public will be able to vote for their favourite entries. The top 10 will then be shortlisted to 3 by an independent jury, where the public will once again be able to vote for their favourite in a special show in January streamed via RTVE.es.
The winner of Objetivo Eurovisión will go on to represent Spain in the Grand Final of the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in the host city of Kyiv on the 13 May.
