There have been rumours that Spain has been asking artists to represent the country in the Eurovision Song Contest, but the artist that has come up the most amount of times is that of Ruth Lorenzo. There are many reports that RTVE have been presenting the offer to Lorenzo for her to compete in Eurovision, but she has neither accepted or declined the offer.
Ruth Lorenzo is no stranger to the stage, as she competed in the English version of the X-Factor in 2008, and finished in a very respectable fourth position. Talking to English reality star Lizzy Cundy, she said that she was asked to represent Spain in Eurovision, but is waiting to see whether it’s the right decision to make to do it or not, though she did say that she would love to represent the United Kingdom at Eurovision. A song released by Lorenzo soon after her participation in X Factor, called Burn, was released in Spain and charted at No. 16 in the country, though receiving very little promotion.
If Lorenzo accepts the invitation and represents Spain at Eurovision, it will be the third year in a row that RTVE will have internally selected the artist, following Pastora Soler in 2012 with “Queadaté Conmigo” and El Sueno de Morfeo in 2013 with “Contigo Hasta El Final”. Spain hasn’t done very well in the Contest recently, getting 20th to 25th places, though Soler did score a tenth position for the country, their first top ten placing since the 2004 Contest in Istanbul.
Could Ruth Lorenzo bring Spain to glory? Let me know by comments below!!
