What happens next?
Further details from RTVE have revealed that from Monday 7th January, the acts and the composers will continue work on their proposals. Perhaps this is related to staging concepts for the Eurovision Gala. Or maybe it means there is a chance for slight revamps to the songs? However, we will have to wait until 48hrs before the Gala to find out. As that is when the full versions of all 10 songs will be revealed online on RTVE.es. The Gala will be aired at the end of January on La 1.
