  1. Yet again a very upsetting choice that has caused a petition to be created claiming that the contest was a Tongo. Spanish for fixed result. To add insult to injury a Catalan will represent Spain when so they keep telling anyone who will listen they want Independence from Spain.
    Add to that the song is half Spanish half English from a singer who has dreadful pronunciation of English and you must have a winner. Only joking it’s one of the worst songs for Eurovision I’ve heard in a longtime. A Euro Festival Fan.
