TVE, the national Spanish broadcaster has informed esctoday.com that the Spanish 2013 Eurovision entry will be selected via a public and jury deliberation during a special televised song selection show. Last Monday TVE confirmed that Spain will compete at the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden next year, and also revealed that the Spanish representative will be chosen via an internal selection. TVE will once again opt for a well known artist to represent Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest after Pastora Soler’s successful Eurovision experience in Baku.
TVE will be revealing the name of the Spanish representative in due course. Spain has once again opted for the same method and mechanism to select both their Eurovision entry and representative like last year. The Spanish representative will perform a number of songs in a special Eurovision televised gala, where the Spanish public along with a special jury will select the 2013 Spanish Eurovision entry.
