More Spain
Spain is a member of the big 4/5 and is always secured of a place in the final, but they have finished outside the top 20 on several occasions in recent years: El Sueño De Morfeo (2013), Lucia Pérez (2011), Soraya (2009). Daniel Diges (2010) had his performance invaded by some professional attention seeker, but did slightly better with a 16th place.
Best recent result for Spain was #10 for Pastora Solers Quédate Conmigo in 2012.
In 2008 Rodolfo Chikilicuatre scored a bit of an international hit with the much debated Baila El Chiki Chiki, despite only ending 16th.
