Espagne 1969

Spain hosted the Eurovision Song Contest 1969 at the Teatro Real in Madrid, after Massiel won the 1968 contest with « La, la, la« . TVE internally selected Salomé to represent the country at the contest. The song, « Vivo cantando« , was selected through a national final.

National final

The national final took place at the Teatro Balear in Palma de Mallorca from February 20 to 22, hosted by Marisa Medina and Joaquín Prat. Salomé had already been selected as the singer, but the ten candidate songs were performed twice, once by her and once by another performer.[1][2]
