OT4 to select 2005 Spanish representative?

Spanish broadcaster TVE doubts about whether to continue using the Operación Triunfo format to select the Spanish representative for the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005. They are demanding changes to the format after this year's Operación Triunfo 3 failed in the viewing rates chart.

Following poor viewing figures of Operación Triunfo 3 rumours have already been popping up saying that there wouldn't been a 4th edition before the summer of 2005. Thus the 2005 Spanish Eurovision Song Contest representative would not be selected by this popular format.

Nevertheless TVE started negotiations with GestMusic, the producer of Operación Triunfo, about producing a 4th edition in October 2004 or January 2005. TVE however, is demanding changes to the format in order to kick up the viewing rates again.

Knowing that Operación Triunfo 4 will probably take place before the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest, the format can still be used to select the Spanish representative for Kiev. TVE however, did not make a final decision yet!
