It’s a good thing I can read Spanish, since none of the sources on Google are in English for this one yet. Popular UK X-Factor star Ruth Lorenzo (she came 5th in 2008) last week revealed to the media that she had turned down an offer by the BBC to compete for the UK in ESC 2014, and added cryptically that if she competed, it would be for her native Spain.
Fast forward to this afternoon, and all the Spanish media is blowing up with the news that TVE is about to reveal that, indeed, the singer (born in Murcia) will be the artist to perform for Spain in Copenhagen next May.
Here is a clip of Lorenzo from her X-Factor days. With the right song, she could match the top ten placing Spain achieved in 2012 with powerhouse Pastora Soler.
