In the wake of the mediatic storm and speculations stirred in the Spanish media in the last few days regarding the 2015 Spanish Eurovision candidate, ESCToday decided to contact TVE, the Spanish national broadcaster in order to throw some light and clarify the matter.

TVE has confirmed to ESCToday that it is currently evaluating various options and will make an announcement regarding the 2015 Spanish Eurovision participation in due course.

ESCToday has learned that the broadcaster has received many proposals from well established artists in Spain who are interested in representing the country in Vienna. Thus BIG names are on the table and now it lies upon the broadcaster to make the debilaration on its 2015 Eurovision candidate, entry and method of selection.

Meanwhile the Spanish media has been having  a field day speculating the names of the potential 2015 Spanish Eurovision representatives; Pablo Alborran, Edurne, Diana Navarro and the last one to be added on the list has been none other than the Spanish Queen of Pop Marta Sanchez.

Despite the media reports and rumours circulating on the net, Twitter, Facebook and Spanish webportals,  the Spanish broadcaster remains tight lipped regarding the BIG Q: Who will represent Spain in Vienna?

TVE is expected to  release more information regarding the 2015 Spanish Eurovision project in due course. The broadcaster is yet to reveal if it will opt for an internal selection or a national selection in order to select its Eurovision entry/act for Vienna.

In 2014 Spain opted for a national selection in order to select its Eurovision entry and act for Copenhagen. Ruth Lorenzo won the 2014 Spanish national final with her entry Dancing in the rain and achieved an honorable 10th place at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest grand final.

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 with Massiel and 1969 in Salome.

The 2015 Eurovision Song Contest is scheduled to be held on 19, 21, 23 May at the Wiener Stadthalle, in Vienna.
