Change to fourth gala selection procedure

by Benny Royston 58 views

The selection process for the fourth and final Gala heat in Spain will change slightly. In the final heat, 12 acts will compete for places in the semifinal. In addition, four groups made up of previous performers will compete for the fifth and final semi-final place.

In total, 56 acts were selected to participate in the heats in Spain, and the final four spots are to be given to bands or groups made up of some of the 56 participants.

The 12 competing acts will compete in the usual way, with the top three as voted by the public moving forwards to the final, but the specialist jury of Massiel and Michael Herzog will only select one additional artist to qualify. The four bands made up of artists that have performed previously will compete for the fifth place in the semi final, again to be decided by televote.

The names of the competing acts in the fourth gala will be published on Tuesday. We will also learn which five songs proceed to the final during the fourthgala on Saturday 3rd February, starting at 22:30 CET.
