Last Eurovision season, one of the most followed (not in the last place in Spain, where it was a huge hit) national finals was Operación Triunfo in Spain.
Earlier this year, broadcaster TVE had already announced the show would be back for another season but today the confirmation came that it would be used to select the Eurovision singer(s) and entry.
Content Director of TVE, Tony Sevilla, said so and added that they are currently in the process of deciding how and when to present the songs:
