Spain’s Eurovision Journey
Spain debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1961 with Conchita Bautista’s “Estando Contigo”. The country earned its first win in 1968 with Massiel’s “La La La”, and won again in 1969 with Salome’s “Vivo Cantando” in an infamous four-way tie. Although they have yet to win again, Spain earned several 2nd place finishes, most famously with Mocedades’ “Eres tu” in 1973 and Anabel Conde’s “Vuelve conmigo” in 1996.
Spain has been less successful in recent years. Although they achieved two 10th place finishes in 2012 and 2014, the country has not finished above 20th place since 2015, including one last-place in 2017. They finished 24th at the 2021 contest with 6 points from the jury and no televote points.
San Marino’s Eurovision Journey
As one of the smallest countries in Europe, San Marino made its debut in the competition in 2008 with Miodio and the song “Complice.” Since then the nation has participated in the competition 11 times, thrice qualifying for the Grand Final, and secured its best result in 2019 with Serhat and “Say Na Na Na.”
San Marino’s recent participation saw Senhit (who represented the country in 2011, and had been set to do so again 2020) represent the country in 2021 with the song “Adrenalina.” At her performance in Rotterdam, she was joined by American rapper Flo Rida, and secured San Marino its second consecutive Grand Final qualification. San Marino placed 22nd overall in 2021, receiving a combined 50 points from the jury and televoters.
