The last time Spain won Eurovision was in 1969 when Salome performed Vivo Cantando (I Live for Singing). Britain’s Katrina and the Waves were the last to win the contest for their country with Love Shine a Light in 1997.

Spain has chosen Granada City’s Alhambra for its backdrop when awarding prizes this year.

Pro-Palestinian activists have called for a boycott of the contest due to Israel’s actions in the Gaza strip and West Bank.
