TVE, the Spanish broadcaster, has just released the songs by this year’s Spanish hopefuls for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014. There are five competing acts and the winner will be selected by a combination of televoting (50%) and jury voting (50%). You can listen to their entries on the TVE web site and below. TVE would like fans to use the hashtag ‘#europarty’ when commenting about the songs. But is anyone actually giving you a #europarty vibe? Is fan favourite Ruth Lorenzo turning you on? Let us know in the comments box below!
The contestants and songs
Brequette – Más (Run)

Brequette down yo!!!! (Break it down yo!!!)
I like Brequette, Ruth and La Dama 😀 And Jorge a bit too! Raul’s song doesn’t really appeal to me. It’s OK, but like a radio song you hear in the background, but immediately forget. Looks promising for Spain this year :)!
@Eurovision-berlin: “And have nothing to do with Spain” … and don’t have cuz the last time I’ve checked both Lena’s entries and Cascada’s “Glorious” did not tell me what is “Germany” culturallywise… or have they? Ich bin sicher, dass die Lieder im Grand-prix Eurovision keine spezifische kulturelle Merkmale brauchen, um die eigenen Länder auf der Bühne darzustellen, oder? @Pastora Soler ha ha ha: Si es verdad que TVE eligió al grupo para representar a España el año pasado. Sin embargo y a causa de esa selección que resultó terrible, comenté lo que comenté … cuando hablé de “Spain”, bueno, no… Read more »
I only like the songs from Ruth and Jorge. The others sound so cheap produced as copies. And have nothing to do with Spain.
I don’t have anything to say, because this – is Ruth or Brequette – and I said it days ago. Brequette has the best song, but can she sing this high notes in a live show?? I´m not sure… We´ll see it in a few days. Just one thing. Charles is easy to say that “we should have keept the level after Pastora Soler” oh yeah… say it to TVE (Spanish public Television). Spain didn’t vote ESDM to Eurovision, just “the best” song. Is not a group for Eurovision, the lead singer (Raquel del Rosario) hasn’t a great voice for… Read more »
Ruth is by far the most complete artist. Her song is amazing and she wrote it! And, if she is allowed to compete in Eurovision 2014, she’ll win. Her ability to perform live is second to none.
Ruth es sin lugar a dudas la artista más completa. Su canción es increíble y la escribió ella misma. Y si le permiten competir en Eurovisión 2014, ganará. Su habilidad para cantar en directo es insuperable.
@Wiwi I think a Wiwi Jury for Eesti Laul is fair, right?
WOW WOW WOW many big WOWs for Spain this year! Really impressed with the preselection song choices. But like everybody here or almost everybody both Braquette and Ruth do deliver the BEST songs … everything else is purely the typical Spanish crap I’ve heard over and over again with no emotion or originality. The fact that Braquete and Ruth include English lyrics here gives an extra to the both songs (and usually I hate bilingual songs) and with very good pronunciation for a change. Well we all were familiar with Ruth as far as English is concerned but Braquete really… Read more »
Ruth seriously disappointed me. It goes nowhere, just like Sandra’s song for Eesti Laul. Brequette should win.
1) “Dancing in the Rain” – Nice song that will come to the fore the best after happy endings in some Spanish soap opera
2) “Aunque se acabe el mundo” – There’s a little bit of Danny Saucedo’s Todo el mundo here
3) Más (Run)” – Something good that would suit well to Rihanna
4) “Estrella fugaz” – Chorus here has ruined everything
5) “Seguir sin ti” – Came in the national selection by mistake lol
It’s Brequette for me. Song-wise, Ruth’s “Dancing In the Rain” is pretty good, but Thomas G:son has clearly made an instant impact on “Más”.
– “Más (Run)” – Beautiful, powerful ballad. Can definitely be another Pastora Soler and earn a good placing for Spain. Reminds me of something Beyoncé or Alicia Keys would sing. Just beautiful. – “Aunque se acabe el mundo” – Nice sing-along (if you speak Spanish) song you can dance to. I don’t think it’s the best choice but it definitely isn’t terrible. – “Estrella fugaz” – Starts off promising, a soft and delicate song. I was waiting for the chorus where I was hoping for it to take off but then I hear it turn into a disco song which… Read more »
Somos septimos en las apuestas! We are 7th at the bookmakers!http://www.nicerodds.co.uk/eurovision-song-contest-odds-2
Please, make a “WIWI JURY” for this selection ? I’d like to see your opinion, here is mine: 01 Brequette “Más (Run)” ? 10/10 ? This song is perfect, this way we will have good results as we have also parts in English. The lyrics make cry. 02 Ruth Lorenzo “Dancing In The Rain” ? 9/10 ? This is as good as I thought. The song has good lyrics but I feel like something is missing, and I also feel that Brequette is better. 03 Jorge González “Aunque Se Acabe El Mundo” ? 8/10 ? I hate this boy, but… Read more »
5 candidates for the Spanish delegation at Eurovision 2014 is very good and could be a big winner or at least 3-5. Nevertheless I still prefer the opt #DancingInTheRain – Ruth Lorenzo to represent Spain in Eurovision 2014 Denmark or at least Raul – Seguir Sin Ti
I think the countries of European Regions South / Latin will be excellent in Denmark’s Eurovision 2014.
I hope Spain, Italian, or / and San Marino come to Denmark in 2014 Eurovision Winner 🙂
Ya estan acusando de plagio,que pasa que les da miedo la propuesta…son canciones muy dignas.
Petar I´m sorry but jorge gonzalez is the worst choice ever!
Not TOP 5 for Spain with these songs. For me best song Jorge González – Aunque se acabe el mundo , he can bring TOP 10 for Spain from 6 to 10 place in final and maybe Brequette
sorry but brequette’s song is a plagiat of zara larsen – uncover
really boring and predictable songs from spain. ruth has the best song though, and could end up around 10th place like pastora soler in 2012
Brequette’s is really the best, but it reminds me a little bit of Drip drop 🙂 Ruth is too dull for me. Raul…just no 🙂 … the other two are almost the same, but not bad 🙂
I think if brequette or ruth had been competing for Russia , Azerbaijan Ukraine , any of the bloc voter countries they could win eurovision .. Otherwise they can only hope for top 5 if either if them go to Copenhagen
Wow, Spain have got 5 pretty solid songs. I think that no matter what song they put forward they will get a good place (left side of the board). As for winning the contest, I think that Brequette would have a good chance, but not any of the others. I also think that Ruth would be a big risk,as songs like that can do horribly.
Definately! Brequette or Ruth!Both can win the contest! Like oikotimes has said it! Madrid 2015?
Ruth. Temazo e directazo. Seguro
It’s between brequette and ruth I think … Two strong songs with top 5 potential in eurovision
