Previously, scored by the professional jury, they had obtained a fourth place. In total, 631 points made the song ‘Stefania’ the undisputed winner of the musical event. Behind the Ukrainian band, the United Kingdom was positioned with an impeccable Sam Ryder defending ‘Space Man’ tooth and nail, while the bronze went for a brilliant chanell that made the Pala Alpitour shake with ‘Slomo’.

    A victory that in social networks has quickly been associated with political terms and that, if we stick to the aforementioned bookmakers, was outlined as the favorite once last February the war that they maintain with Russia. Be that as it may, the folk rhythm that intermingled rap and some characteristic flute sounds have been made with the long-awaited glass microphone in an edition that, after being finalized, raises as many future doubts.

    Likewise, it is worth highlighting the milestone that this third place has meant for Spain, an achievement that we have not obtained since 1995 when Anabel Conde took second place thanks to the song ‘Come back to me’. There is no doubt that, after the controversial Benidorm Fest and a hard-fought edition of Eurovision that has had us in suspense from the first moment, a star has been born whose musical projection knows no limits or ceiling.
