Madrid, Spain -

Spanish broadcaster TVE has decided to internally select Pastora Soler to represent Spain in Baku next year. Her song will be chosen by the public and a jury.

After assessing a number of selection options, Spanish broadcaster TVE opted for an internal artist selection and a public song selection.

Behind closed doors, TVE carefully examined bids submitted by various artists and record companies and came to the decision that Pastora Soler should represent Spain in Baku next year.

Born in 1978, Pastora has had a lot of success in Spain, which is one of the main reasons she was chosen by TVE. She released her first album in 1994 and has since released 10 albums in all plus a compilation of her hits. She is known for combining many different styles in her music, including flamenco, pop and even dance. Pastora has also collaborated with many different artists through her career.

Pastora has not only had a lot of success at home in Spain but also abroad and has won a number of awards. She recently released an album entitled Una Mujer Como Yo

According to TVE a televised national final will be held at some point in February where the viewers will help to decide the song Pastora will perform in Baku on the 26th of May.

    I think she's a good singer, but everything will depend on the song and the staging, Eurovision is a song contest, not a singer contest, is it not? report to the moderator

    I'm a spanish boy and I don't like Pastora Soler for Eurovision... well, she has a great voice, but the kind of music of her isn't enough for Eurovision, if Spain won's change, it won't win...

    The spanish music isn't enough after all, and I like rock and metal, but I also listen to ani lorak (ucranian pop-rock) for example... so, I don't want any typical spanish artist in Eurovision Song Contest... report to the moderator
