The Spanish media were prepared, especially the Spanish Eurovision Song Contest related websites were on their high-alert status. Earlier this week, broadcaster TVË submitted a press bulletin to prepare the media… the singer representing Spain on the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest was told to be announced tonight! But…
Earlier, eurovision-spain.com informed us that the final decision was to be taken at 28th January, but tonight Operación Triunfo host Carlos Lozano said that “tonight we'll know the winner”. Surprise, surprise… the show ended without a winner, because TVË wanted to give the audience a week time to televote for their favourite entry.
Eurovision-spain.com reported to esctoday.com that, generally, the Spanish television audience was unpleasantly surprised with this “chaotic situation this year”.
The final songs
Davinia: Como quieres que te quiera
Ramón: Para llenarme de ti
Vicente: Se me va la vida
Óscar Abilleria Muñiz, Chief Editor of eurovision-spain.com and former esctoday.com editor, apologised for the inconvenience: “we were surprised too that this happened!”. Better luck next week?
