The winner of Objetivo Eurovisión 2017 and the Spanish representative at Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv will be chosen by a mix of televoting and a professional jury.
Online contest and internal selection
The entries for Objetivo Eurovisión 2017 will be selected by both an online contest and an internal selection.
The online contest will select one of the songs for Objetivo Eurovisión 2017. Everyone who wants to compete in Objetivo Eurovisión 2017 can apply for the online contest, and 30 of these entries will be selected by RTVE. The 30 selected entries will first compete in an online competition where everyone can give their votes on the entries (one vote per IP address). The best 10 entries will be narrowed down to 3 entries by a jury, to proceed to a special sing-off where the songs will be performed at an online live streamed event on the internet. An online voting will select just one song to qualify for the Spanish national selection Objetivo Eurovisión 2017.
The registration period opens on 27 October and closes on 27 November 2017.
The broadcaster RTVE will internally select an unknown number of finalists for Objetivo Eurovisión 2017 among professional singers from the Spanish music industry.
Spain is a member og "Big-5", and therefore don't have to qualify for the Grand Final.
Spain is also a member of the "club zero", because they have managed to get zero points (3 times!). They have ended last 4 times in Eurovision history.
Best known song for Spain is probably the song "Eres Tú" from Festival de la canción Eurovision 1973 (2nd place, only four points from victory).
