Light your fireworks and raise your glass of Sangria because Spain’s national broadcaster RTVE has announced that it will host a National Final to select the country’s representative at Eurovision 2016! Spain is returning to the public vote after a year of internal selections which did not go as well as expected.  UPDATE: RTVE has confirmed that six acts will take part in the NF.

The national broadcaster has informed that the six acts will be performing in the National Final haven’t been selected yet. They are still in talks with some of them, apparently, so they kept thin-mouthed about the names. For the moment, we only know that they will be “famous, young and talented” and will sing “current pop music”.

According to Spanish fan site eurovision-spain.com some of those acts include Maverick and Xuso Jones.

MAVERICK – PRINCESA DESCALZA

XUSO JONES – MEGAPHONE

The last time Spain held a National Final, Ruth Lorenzo was selected for Copenhagen and she scored a respectable 10th place. The National Final also gave us THIS moment:

Rumours have sprung about other possible artists on the National Final. There’s Mägo de Oz, there’s Abraham Mateo, there’s Raúl López, there’s María Isabel and there’s all our wishlist of participants. Will any of them go on to represent Spain in Stockholm?

This article will be updated during today, stay tuned!

All Sara Serenas Likes, followers and wiews are Bought on youtube and facebook, thats easy to see.. Not a great way to become famous as a singer and to present Spain in eurovision!!! I really hope it is a joke. Mägo de Oz, Abraham Mateo, Raúl López, and María Isabel thats really god singers..

Yes! I so wanted a NF for Spain again. I personally think the format they used for 2014 worked well, just a few acts, but GOOD candidates, so six acts are more than enough in my opinion, as long as they’re all about quality over quantity.

Asi de pobre es el interes de RTVE en ESC.Si solo seis acto y eso que noto una tendencia positiva e interes de artistas de diferente perfil en presentarse a ESC, pobre EDUERNE que RTVE le vendio la cancion sueca el año pasado como si fuera una panacea y la mandaron a fracasar a VIENA.Si RTVE trabaja para el evento de esta manera.

Yes! Finally this year I’ll get to watch three national selections where I don’t have to vaguely guess what they’re saying (Italy, UK and now Spain)!
If they broadcast it in the main TVE channel I might get to watch it in the TV instead of the computer.

I’d Love to watch on Eurovision the group “Yall” with their song “Hundred Miles” (I hope but it’s difficult RTVE chosing a song all In english). Current and a catchy song… But let’s wait what happens…
