The day has come when one of the three songs that Pastora Soler performs in the Spanish final will be chosen as her entry for Baku. Will it be Ahora O Nunca, Tu Vida Es Tu Vida or Quedate Conmigo? A three-member jury and the televote will have the final say tonight from 22:20 CET.

In late December the popular singer Pastora Soler, from Seville, was chosen internally as the singer that will represent Spain at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest.

Tonight a show called Eurovisión. Pastora Soler, to determine what song she will perform in Baku, will take place at the TVE studios in Madrid hosted by Anne Igartiburu, who also did the presentation the last couple of years.

Earlier this week, Spanish Television TVE, revealed the names of the three members of the jury who will account for 50% of the final result. They are the singer Sole Giménez, who was a member of the Spanish jury already last year, Venezuelan singer/songwriter Franco de Vita and the music producer Óscar Gómez from Cuba.

The songs they have to judge, along with the viewing public at home are:

•    Quédate Conmigo (Stay With Me) written by Thomas G:son, Tony Sánchez-Ohlsson & Erik Bernholm
•    Tu Vida Es Tu Vida (Your life Is Your Life) written by Max Miona, Eleonora Giudizi & Juan María Montes
•    Ahora O Nunca (Now Or Never) written by José Abraham

The most voted song from the public, by phone calls and SMS, will receive a total of 36 points, the second 30 points, and the least voted will get 24 points. Also, each of the three jurors award the three songs with 12, 10 and 8 points in order of preference. All the points are added to get the final result. In case of a tie, the public vote prevails.

The winning song will be performed at the Final of the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku on the 26th of May following the footsteps of last year's Spanish entry Que Me Quiten Lo Bailao sung by Lucía Pérez.
