Today, the Spanish national final for Eurovision 2016 will be held live from Madrid!
A total of 6 internally selected artists will compete to represent the Big 5 country in Stockholm. As in previous Spanish finals, Anne Igartiburu will host the show that will be broadcasted at 22.15 CET on the First Channel (La 1).
This is the running order for today’s show:
- Maverick – Un Mundo Más Feliz
- Barei – Say yay!
- Xuso Jones – Victorious
- Salva Betrán – Días de Alegría

A mix of public televote (40%), national (30%) and international jury (30%) will be in charge of selecting who will follow Edurne’s footsteps at the Grand Final of Eurovision 2016. This is the first time the Spanish broadcaster incorporates an international jury, while the national one will be made up of Edurne (Eurovision 2015), Loreen (Eurovision 2012) and Carlos Marín (Il Divo).
The show will feature performances of former national final participants, D’Nash, Coral, Mirela, Brequette and Jorge Gozález, who will be singing a Eurovision Medley of past Spanish entries, Edurne and Loreen, winner of Eurovision 2012.
