In recent weeks Eurovision fans have described Mira Quien Va A Eurovision—Spain’s national selection—as a contest between Brequette and Ruth Lorenzo. But if our readers have it right then the Spanish contest will actually be a one-woman show starring Brequette and her song “Más” (Run).
The cantante from Gran Canaria earned 57% of all votes cast in our poll. That put her well ahead of runner-up Ruth. Miss Lorenzo earned 31% of all votes with her song “Dancing in the Rain”. Jorge González, La Dama, and Raúl only captured 12% of the vote between them.
1. Brequette – Más (Run): 470 votes, 56.63%
2. Ruth Lorenzo – Dancing in the Rain: 254 votes, 30.6%
3. Jorge González – Aunque se acabe el mundo: 52 votes, 6.27%
4. La Dama – Estrella fugaz: 43 votes, 5.18%
5. Raúl – Seguir sin ti: 11 votes, 1.33%
Interestingly, the results of our fan poll are identical to the results of the Wiwi Jury—our in-house panel of music unprofessionals. Ruth received a lot of love, with one juror saying that her song Dancing in the Rain, “transforms Lorenzo from a reality-TV reject into Eurovision’s premier dreamcatcher.”
But our love for Brequette was even more intense. As one juror wrote: “Once you listen the chorus remains in your heart forever.”

Soy de Gran Canaria.Brequette es nacida en Sudrafica,su marido y sus hijos son canarios y ella siente esta tierra como suya.Dejad de inventar cosas sobre si los españoles somos racitas yo no lo siento asi.
Well Spain chose to finish in the 20s again tonight. What an enormous mistake. They had a Top 5 song and performer and perhaps even a winner. Now they have a good singer singing a very boring and forgettable song.
Brequette is from South Africa, not from Gran Canaria, but she wins this evening, she will WIN ESC 2014. Good Luck Brecky!.
I gree with your readers 😉

I like all of them, I’m happy with this final.
You don’t even know her name lol
Anyways, Brequette is hands down the best, and she can very much end up with a Top 5 placing.
Ruth to win!
She is the best way better than the rest. Possible winner of ESC.
ELLA DEVE SER

Hersi Matmuja ALB

& probably ballads from Austria (likely), Israel (likely), Azerbaijan (likely), Russia (likely), Belgium (less likely), Netherlands (less likely), Portugal (likely), Slovenia (less likely) & the UK (less likely).
No way. She is cute, but the song is clearly a copy of zara nilsons “uncover”.
Ireland Kasey Smith – Heartbeat, Germany Madeline Juno – Like Lovers Do and Spain La Dama – Estrella Fugaz are three the best options in ESC2014.
La Dama should win. Her song is smart, elegant and she looks sensational.
Lack of melody, rhythm and sense – this is Brequette and her song. Also her voice is hideous.
I want Ruth more, and there is a possibility that it can happen, as that Dancing in the Rain is #2 in the iTunes list, while Brequette is 2 steps behind, #4.
