SPAIN 2014: NATIONAL FINAL UNDERWAY
MADRID, SPAIN – It is becoming apparent that TVE are looking to undertake a preselection process to choose the representative for Eurovision 2014. Among those named to be taking part are Roser, Melody, Maria Isabel and Ruth Lorenzo. This has been brought about by the failure of TVE to capture a bid national name or to reach consensus on a song and singer combination.
It was rumoured that TVE favoured Monica Naranjo but that it is understood she felt uneasy with working under a different producer to her choosing. Ruth Lorenzo was apparently keen to sing in English, having starred in the UK edition of X-Factor in 2008. This was something that TVE are not keen on since Spanish is one of the main European languages and they wish to continue promoting it.
Melody is currently working on “Tu cara me suena”, surprisingly enough, a programme where Monica Naranjo forms part of the jury. Maria Isabel who won Junior Eurovision in 2004 would be a good choice were she to be included, since she is already known to European audiences. An announcement on participants and the process should be announced in the coming days.
