ESDM IGNORED UPON ARRIVAL IN SPAIN
The Spansih representatives at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, band ESDM, have been snubbed by the Spanish public since their arrival following their lacklustre result in Malmo this year. While Pastora Soler was welcomed home as a hero last year after her top ten placing, ESDM arrived at Barajas Airport following the contest last month without much fanfare.
Spain’s Eurovision commentator, Jose Maria Inigo, believes the public showed little interest for ESDM due to a poor PR campaign, with the Spanish broadcaster committing only 300.000 euros for the entire Eurovision project this year. While other countries promoted their songs with tours and recordings in different languages, “Contigo hasta el final” was not promoted outside of Spain.
