Such has been the response that the national broadcaster has received 1001 songs. Massiel and Mikel Herzog both former Eurovision participants have had a great hand in shortlisting these 1001 songs to the15 finalist entries.
Today the official website misioneurovision.es will release the 15 songs that will compete to represent Spain in the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest on their website for the public to listen and vote for their favourites. The viewers will be able to vote for their favourite entries from the 15- 21 January. The top 5 songs will qualify for the final which will be held on the 20th of February.
All these songs will be released online without any arrangements and will be the same versions that were sent on CD to the Spanish broadcaster. Mikel Herzog will be working on the arrangements of the 5 songs that will compete in the final as well as the entry that will represent Spain.
