#Eurocasting’s final stretch
The process started back in late November when the broadcaster announced that 30 artists had made the final cut to participate in what has been named the #Eurocasting, the online wildcard round of ‘Objetivo Eurovisión’. Back on December 2nd, the broadcaster gave the power to the public as users were able to vote for their 10 favourite entries from the list of thirty, with the 10 most voted artists proceeding to the next stage of the selection, in which the broadcaster announced the 10 songs that had been the most popular amongst the audience.
After today’s announcement, the lucky winners will see each other’s faces when they compete in the online final that will give the winner a ticket to ‘Objetivo Eurovisión’ on January 14th, when the names of the internally selected artists will also be announced.
