Did You Know?


As of 2019, the song "Eres Tú" by Mocedades remains being the highest scored song from Spain in Eurovision history with 125 points, even after the introduction of the semi finals in 2004 and the change in the scoring system in 2015 that dramatically increased the amount of points to be allocated to the songs. In fact, only six songs out of the 59 songs that have represented Spain from 1961 to 2019 have received more than 100 points. See more »


During the Spanish Entry (Mocedades with Eres tú), the voices weren't well equalized. Due to problems with equalizers, they had to turn down the volume of all mics except Amaya's, so the background vocals were too weak. See more »

A mixed bag of international talent

Well, let me tell you, probably the best Eurovision Contest I saw was from 1971 in Dublin, Ireland, but I'll review that later. First of all, let's start with the hostess, Helga Guitton, or just Helga, as she was listed in the closing credits. She was okay of a hostess, but I've seen better. Her hair looked like it was painted blond. Next, the performers. If I were to pick the winner, overall, it would have to be Portugal's Fernando Tordo, whose political song, Torada, would be the most entertaining of the evening. The most disappointing performance would have to go to Italy's Massimo Ranieri, with his very pathetic song, "Qui Sera". I was expecting more from Massimo after an excellent performance at his previous ESC appearance. The song was very bad and didn't give Massimo a chance to sing to his full potential. Next, we have a first in the history books for the ESC......2 women conductors took the podium to lead the ESC orchestra: first, Sweden's Monica Dominique to conduct the Swedish entry, Nova and their very risqué song, "You're Summer" which contains the word "breasts" in the lyrics several times, and Israel's Nurit Hirsch conducted the Israeli entry, Ilanit, with her song, "Ey Sham".
