TVE, the Spanish national broadcaster has announced that El Sueño de Morfeo have been selected to represent Spain at the forthcoming 2013 Eurovision Song Contest, scheduled to be held in Malmö next May.

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 week 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 has once again opted for a well known act to represent Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest after Pastora Soler’s successful Eurovision experience in Baku with Quedate Conmigo.
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. The competing songs will be released on TVE’s official website prior to the competition.
Spain debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1961 and has participated at every Eurovision edition since then. Spain has won the contest in 1968 and 1969.
