With 15 countries having voted (of 40) so far, Spain has already exceeded 100 points.

At the moment, the jury’s vote is not supporting Ukraine, the betting favorite, while Spain remains the third most supported country.

Emotion in the voting, with Spain very high

We haven’t seen one like this in YEARS. We already have four twelves (San Marino, North Macedonia, Malta and Portugal), and a 10 from Belgium, as well as a lot of other points from other countries. that’s how it goes

Natalie Marcos

EYE, EYE, that San Marino, Malta and North Macedonia have already given us the 12 points of the professional vote. AWESOME

HECTOR LLANOS

Three 12 in a row for Spain, (instead of all night), something unprecedented.

HECTOR LLANOS

Well, the San Marino jury gave 12 points to Spain.

Announcement of voting results begins

We remember, first, country by country, the votes of the professional jury, which account for 50% of the total, will be announced. For the public vote, we will have to wait for the end, which will be announced with a result that adds up all the televoting received by each country in the same number and can give important turns to the final classification

HECTOR LLANOS

Spain scales another position

Well, Spain goes up again in the bets. She is already the third favorite! It has more merit, because it happens once all the countries have acted.

Voting lines about to close

There are seconds left to vote and we will start with the most exciting part of the night, the announcement of the votes. This is the summary of all the performances of the night

The absence of Raffaella Carrà

Although Laura Pausini is getting a lot of praise tonight, the first choice to host tonight’s festival finale was Raffaella Carrà, but she passed away last July. Although perhaps the initial idea was that they present together.

More than 300,000 views in an hour

Chanel’s performance in the Eurovision final is the most watched on YouTube of all of the night, by far. Here you can see it again


HECTOR LLANOS

One of the reasons why Mika is the presenter of the Eurovision with Italy as host is that for years he has participated as a jury in musical competitions in France and Italy.

Brands join the meme fever

Humor, quick reflexes and creativity, the infallible mix for the night of Eurovision on Twitter

(We are sorry to report that all flights to Spain have been sold out tonight. The reason for this sudden spike in bookings is unclear)

HECTOR LLANOS

Alessandro Cattelan, supporting Italian fashion?

HECTOR LLANOS

The Måneskin trampoline

Let us remember that Måneskin have become world stars after passing through Eurovision and have entered lists of markets as complicated as the United Kingdom and the United States.

End of performances and turn to vote

There is time until twelve at night. Meanwhile, the organizers will delight us with various performances to entertain us so that the party doesn’t falter (if it hasn’t already done so with so many ballads…).

And we end with sounds of the west

A disciple of Johnny Cash and Ennio Morricone sings for Estonia this year at the festival. At 24 years old, Stefan Airapetjan has had time to present himself four times to the pre-selection of his country. The opportunity has come in 2022 with Hopejust after making his single Doomino become the most broadcast in his country in 2021.
