It was Spain that started off Eurovision in the 90's, err...twice!
I know it's hard to think that there could be any technical hitches at Eurovision, but Spain had quite the doozy when the backing track kinda started in the middle of the song, after a very long and uncomfortable silence. After realising the song was not at the beginning, they stormed off the stage. They returned shortly after, and pulled off an amazing performance.
Spain performed strongly all through the 90's, placed in the Top Ten four times, including a second place in 1995. That was until the very last year, 1999, when Spain posted a last place result with a score of just 1 point! Luckily Spain had secured "Big Four" status for this year, otherwise we're pretty sure they would have been relegated from the 2000 contest.
