Spain at Eurovision

Spain debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1961 and has won the event twice: Massiel (1968) and Salome (1969). The country has hosted the event in Madrid in 1969 and has partaken in the competition religiously every years since its debut. We should note that the Iberian nation has not missed a single edition since 1961 with the exception of 2022 when the competition has cancelled due to the COVID 19 pandemic.
