Canal Sur has just released to the press a regional map that shows all of the towns and cities in the autonomous community that have submitted an artist/group with an interest in representing Andalucía in WorldVision. In total, we have 19 artists/groups currently under consideration. Some towns and cities have more than one interested artist, but as you can see from the below, there is a wide geographical spread of potential entrants so far!

☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ BREAKING NEWS FROM CANAL SUR!!! ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼

This evening, Canal Sur revealed the first hint of Andalucía's future participation in WorldVision 33.


Tonight, we can exclusively reveal that the first representative for Andalucía in WorldVision comes from the beautiful coastal provincia of Cádiz!!

http://www.3vents.es/typo3temp/pics/c8eaabd5a3.jpg

Stay tuned for more exciting information as we prepare for our first participation in WV33

¡¡Vamos Andalucía!!

Exciting news, no? So what are your hopes or expectations for the first representative considering this first hint of their origin? ;)

Nice - so that's one hopeful vote for San Fernando being the hometown for our WV33 artist. Anyone else?

The three towns and cities in Cádiz that have submitted an accepted artist by Canal Sur are:

- San Fernando

More news has broken this evening from Canal Sur regarding the identity of Andalucía's debut entry...



Andalucía's debut particpant does not hail from San Fernando and has enjoyed a successful career spanning over 12 years. We will be represented by this energetic and untamed female as she shows us all just what the region of Cádiz can bring to the party.

¿Estáis todos preparados? ¡¡Dame vuestra energía y siente el ritmo!!


So San Fernando is out of the running to be the momentous first town to send an Andalucian representative to WorldVision. It's between Sanlucar de Barrameda and Cádiz.

The local press are going into overdrive trying to guess the identity of the representative, but Canal Sur is remaining firmly tight-lipped until the confirmation period for WV33 begins... ;)

theditz83
25th July 2014, 00:49
BREAKING NEWS!!!

The secret is out... Canal Sur have just released a press statement with Andalucía's debut artist for WV 33!! :D


WORLDVISION COMMUNITY!!

We previously revealed to you that the home region of our debut entrant for WV 33 was the beautiful coastal area of Cádiz!

Well, we can now exclusively reveal that our debut representative is a female solo artist who first rose into the public eye in 2001 thanks to the primetime talent search show "Operación Triunfo". She has frequently gone through many transformations - from innocent latina sex kitten to rock chick and now she is carving out a path as one of the most charismatic dance-pop artists in Spain today.

Hailing from the beautiful northern coastal town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, please everyone say hello to Andalucía's entry for WV 33....

NATALIA

WorldVision is in the news in Andalucía again today as the first hints about the identity of the next artist to represent the region have just been revealed in a press release from Canal Sur:


As the tension rises about the final results for WorldVision 33 in New York, we can exclusively reveal that WV34 will see the baton passed over to the guys. An artist has already been selected by the delegation, and he hails from the beautiful capital of Sevilla!

More details to follow in the run up to the next contest, but for now our future representative wishes Natalia every success in New York!

17th August 2014, 21:46
Our second entry has been sent to the ::sc delegation for consideration, and we are really excited to take part in our second contest after such a warm reception in New York!

We're sending a male solo artist for the next edition, but his identity will be kept hidden until the LL! Feel free to discuss your hopes here - the only clue that you have to go on at the moment is that he is from our region's capital, the beautiful cultural city of Sevilla!

For some reason I thought you are going to send another Operacion Triunfo singer... from the first season. Who's next? Bisbal? Rosa López?

Well, I didn't actually become a fan of Manu until much more recently, so I don't often associate him immediately with OT.

And although the two other artists you've mentioned have potential songs on my list for consideration, I am aiming to avoid them if possible since Trece has already sent Bisbal about 4 times and I want to try and avoid Eurovision artists (so yeah - potentially no Pastora Soler either, but with Trece using her twice already that's fine... ;))

Hopefully people's opinion of this song and Manu won't be affected by the fact that he originally found popularity in OT. xpray

We will be holding a public National Final for WorldVision 35 with 6 songs from the same act... all that we'll say at the moment is we're heading back to the coast, but who is our chosen act??

So it's time to reveal our artists for WV35 - a duo who have enjoyed a fairly long career since they arrived on the scene at the turn of the millennium. They blend flamenco stylings with traditional pop melodies and beats, and they hail from the beautiful coastal town of Cadiz.
