The Spanish public chose the boy band NASH (later known as D'NASH) with the song "I Love You Mi Vida". The song was composed by Thomas G:son and Andreas Rickstrand and written by Tony Sánchez-Ohlsson and Rebeca Pous Del Toro.

Misión Eurovisión 2007[edit]

The selection procedure called for artists to submit their participation and for songs to be submitted without any attachments to specific singers. After four quarter finals, five artists -NASH, Mirela, Nazaret, Yanira Figueroa, and Merche Llobera - were selected to compete in the final on 24 February 2007. Internet voting and an internal jury selected the five songs that each performer would compete with. During the final, extracts of "La Reina De La Noche", "I Love You Mi Vida", "Una Lagrima", "Tu Voz Se Apagará", and "Busco un Hombre/Busco una chica" were performed. The five combinations that the public preferred went on to compete in a super final.

Result of national final[edit]

When the final results were given, NASH and Mirela were tied throughout the voting. In the last regions to award points, NASH pulled ahead and won Misión Eurovisión with the song "I love you mi vida".
