The upcoming Eurovision 2024 season is already looking to be an exciting one, with Spain’s Broadcaster RTVE receiving 825 song applications for next year’s well-known National Final Selection ‘Benidorm Fest’. The competition consists of two Semi-Finals followed by a Grand Final, with the winner jointly determined through teams of judges and a public vote.
