On Monday, Barei won Objetivo Eurovisión with her song “Say Yay!” But for a time it looked like she would have to settle for the silver medal, as Salvador Beltrán took an early lead as the international jury revealed its overall votes. Now TVE — Spain’s national broadcaster — has revealed the full results of the four individual juries from Sweden, the United Kingdom, Italy and France that made up the panel, so we know exactly who withheld their love and said “yay” louder for Salvador than Barei!

The international juries included some familiar names for Eurovision fans. Anggun, who sang for France in 2012, was part of the French jury along with the new Head of Delegation Edoardo Grassi. The chairman of the Swedish jury was Mr Melodifestivalen, Christer Björkman. Scott Mills, the BBC radio presenter, sat on the UK jury.

As you can see below, Salvador scored top marks with every single jury except France, who ranked him next-to-last. France’s favourite was Xuso Jones with his number “Victorious”.

Interestingly, Sweden did not appreciate “Victorious”, which was written by a pair of Swedes, and they placed the song dead last.

Barei was still a favourite with the international juries, scoring 10 points from everyone but the UK, putting her in second place at that stage.

It is my fav out of the three songs by the male artists but I think the juries also put him at #1 because it was the best pure Spanish song entry among the 6 competing songs

Yes! And I’m still happy for this. He was my favourite from the start, but always knew it was a long shot to expect him to win, so I’m glad at least he won this.

Monseñor la vida me ha enseñado, que si tratas con respeto con respeto seras tratado…aqui la unica mierda que hay es la de tu CULO, maleducado, ordinario, fanatico, totalitarista vamos que el nombre te va, que ni pintado con la santa iglesia hemos topado.

It really puzzled me how Salvador was first with the international juries but last with the in-house panel and the televote.
I thought the fact that people were allowed to vote based on the studio version before all the songs had been performed live and that the recap clips were some awkward playback was a really flawed idea, and it really proprlled Barei to the top.

He reminds me so much of Kendji Girac

Salvador was my favourite as well, glad that the Italian jury placed him first.

Didn’t the jury actually vote for the studio versions of the songs, not the live performances?

@MGR Do you like Eurovision at least? Because all the comments I see from you here are negative. For now, I like all the songs, more or less, except the one from Belgium, some are better some are worse, but I can’t stand your continous hate alongisde other users. If a country has selected the song you don’t like get over that or at least stop hating. So stop your eurofan madness and try to enjoy this, which we only live once a year. Related to the international jury results, I can’t understand why they gave their max points to… Read more »

@Eugene, The medley was playback, Edurne and Brequette didn’t sing live and Loreen was a live recorded before the show.

For me Salvador Beltran was generally third favorite in Spain, after Maria Isabel and Electric Nana.

I listened to “Icebreaker” and I do not have so far any objections to this song.

@MGR TBH Norway has a weak NF, the only one I like is Laila, Agnete sounded great in the snnipet but it’s a let down the full version (doesn’t match chorus with The rest) then you have songs that sounds like 1D and Meghan Trainor and nothingnothing more remarkeable… Maybe for me it’s a guilty pleasure The Hungry Hearts & Freddy but not good ones…

It’s curious that Sweeden gave the lowest score to Xuso Jones, I agree that Salvador’s song is great but it would bottom In Stockholm. And also I’d love that the names of the juries had a singer like France with Anggun, not only producers. And finally I missed like Eurosong in Belgium’s that the international jury said which one to give twelve o douze points.

At the moment it is clear that I need to change my mind about Norway. They can be stronger than they were last year. Albania is crap, Spain is crap, Ireland is crap, Belarus is crap and Hungary will be crap. At least Norway will be better than these 5 countries.

His song is great but I think it’s too ‘Spanish’ to do very well at Eurovision – it’s not very international. He was never going to win because from what I can recall his live performance was full of technical errors – his microphone volume was inconsistent, and at times you couldn’t even hear the backing singers so at points it was just the backing track.

I agree with the international juries that Salvador had a great song. But I don’t agree that his would’ve been the best choice for Stockholm.
