Eurovision Song Contest is the most watched non-sports show of the year in Spain but still TVE only aired the final and the semi-final where Spaniards could vote in 2012. Therefore another semi-final wasn’t aired in Spain which caused anger among fans. This year, a group of Spanish Eurovision fans start early to make sure they’d get to see all the three shows live from Malmö on TVE.
Thus, an online petition is now conducted. As of January 7, 86 had signed the petition which was opened a few days ago.
Spain is represented this year by El Sueño de Morfeo. A special televised gala will be organised later this winter where their song for Malmö will be chosen.
