Spain was present at the Eurovision Song Contest 1986, held in Bergen, Norway.

For the tenth straight year, Spain's national broadcaster, Televisión Española, selected their entrant and song for the Eurovision Song Contest internally. This internal selection process would apply to each Spanish Eurovision entrant until 1999.

For 1986, the band Cadillac, already heavily popular by this time in Spain for their string of hit pop/Rock en Español albums, were selected as Spain's representatives to send to the Contest in Bergen. They sang the song "Valentino," which was composed by José María Guzmán, the lead singer and guitarist.

At Eurovision

At the Contest in Bergen, Cadillac was the ninth act on stage, following Turkey and preceding Switzerland. At the end of judging that evening, the song received a total of 51 points, placing Spain tenth out of a field of 20 competing countries.
