Spain in Eurovision

Spain debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1961 with Conchita Bautista and has won the competition twice in 1968 (Massiel) and 1969 (Salome). The country successfully hosted the 1969 Eurovision Song Contest in Madrid when four countries ended up winning the contest.

Spain has not missed a single contest since its debut in 1961 and has participated religiously in the competition every year.

The country has achieved poor results in the competition in recent years and has not achieved a top 5 placing since 1995 when Anabel Conde placed 2nd in Dublin
