The Spain being told not to win story being so widely read I'd argue is excellent publicity tbh, anything that gets a name of a country into people's heads at this stage is likely to be beneficial, especially if it is cleared up soon
Never been too fussed about the televote aspect in fact as you say it may be beneficial. Its the behind the scenes jury instructions that concern me, the kind that got Italy the runaway jury win last year, in reverse

If people think all this free publicity for Spain is BAD for her they must be crazy!!The more people that are aware of her and the song the better, people will now be actively looking out for the song, for instance from having no chance of getting any UK televotes I wouldnt be shocked if shes in the top 4 with us now.
Agreed. The subsequent denial was obviously the right thing to do, however I still have nagging doubts about some impact on the mindset of the juries
