Spain is returning to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest after a thirteen year break and is one of three Big Five nations now competing in the contest. Spain’s return to the contest comes one year after France returned to the competition.
During the four years Spain took part in Junior Eurovision, it achieved great results; two runner-up places in 2003 and 2005, fourth place in 2006 and first place in 2004 with María Isabel and her song “Antes muerta que sencilla”. In that same year, TVE achieved record audiences of 6 million viewers.
Spain is one of the sixteen countries to have made their debut at the inaugural Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2003. Sergio was the first participant to represent Spain with the song “Desde el cielo”, which finished in second place, achieving a score of one hundred and thirty-seven points. Spain is one of the most successful countries in the contest – the country has won the contest once, 2004, represented by María Isabel with “Antes muerta que sencilla”, as well as coming second twice, in both 2003 and 2005. The remaining Spanish entrant finished fourth in 2006.
