The 2008 edition of the OGAE Song Contest has just come to an end with the points awarding ceremony. This year's organizers, the Spanish branch of OGAE, have arranged a splendid Eurovision-like part which lasts more than 20 minutes, with all 27 spokesmen (and women) giving the 8, 10 and 12 points.

The OGAE Song Contest is an audio event in which all OGAE national clubs can enter with an original song released in the previous 12 months in their countries and sang in one of the country's official languages. Spain had this year the honour of hosting the 23rd OGAE Song Contest thanks to the victory of the Spanish branch of OGAE last year in Greece with the song Qué no daría yo, by Rebeca.

Twenty eight clubs participated this year and OGAE Spain put together a video with the voting as delivered by the local spokespersons. So, to discover the winning song,click here and, please, do not spread the news to your friends (just the link should be enough). Let them enjoy the ceremony on their own.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
