Eurocanción 2000Edit

The final took place on 8 February 2000 at TVE's studios in Madrid, hosted by Carlos Lozano and Paloma Lago. TVE selected 15 songs internally for the national final.

The winner was decided by a combination of 17 regional juries (70%) and televoting (30%). Each jury awarded points from 1 to 10, then the televoting results of the Spanish public were added to the top 3 songs only. Serafín Zubiri got the highest number of points from the jury and the audience and was proclaimed winner and entrant for Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest 2000.[2]

Apart from Serafín Zubiri, Anabel Conde, who finished second in the Eurovision Song Contest 1995, participated in the contest in a duo with David Domínguez.
