Spain at Eurovision
Spain debuted in our beloved competition in 1961 and has won the event twice (1968, 1969) and has hosted the competition in Madrid in 1969.
In 2022 Chanel represented Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin with her entry ‘Slo Mo‘ achieving an honourable 3rd placing in the Grand Final.
Chanel’s magnestism, charm and iconic performance brought Spain its best result in the competition in 27 years. In fact the last time Spain placed in the TOP 3 was in 1995 when Anabel Conde placed 2nd in Dublin.
