Paula invited the Spanish viewers to send in questions via sms, prolonging the show for one more hour. She interviewed thefive acts that qualified today as well as some of the other candidates that didnt make it. She asked Massiel, who won the Eurovision Song Contest for Spain in 1968 what would she do if she was proposed to represent Spain again this year! Much to the audience's amusement Massiel answered by saying that she has already had her chance and it would be more than fair to let the younger artists have a go at the contest and togive them the chance to represent Spain.
