TVE, the Spanish national broadcaster has received more than 700 entries so far in their quest to choose the 2009 Spanish Eurovision representative for Moscow in May. You still have until the 17th of December to submit your song and entry in order to compete in the Spanish national selection and thus represent Spain at the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest.
More than 700 entries have been submitted to the TVE Myspace Eurovision 2009: El Retorno, Spanish national selection so far in the past 2 weeks since it opened. More than 700 solo artists and groups have uploaded their song along with their presentation video.

Not all the entries that have been submitted will be elegible to compete as not all comply with the rules and regulations set by TVE. The official list of the competing entries will be announced on the 19th of December when online voting will kick off on the TVE official Spanish Eurovision webpage www.rtve.es/eurovision.
