Wiwi: Water, water everywhere! Ruth Lorenzo brought it home today with her moving performance of “Dancing in the Rain.” The LED floor looks like a puddle and you can see “rain” dropping into it. The LED makes it seem like it’s raining all around her, and everything is bathed in blue-grey light. It’s stunning. She’s not just dancing in the rain—she’s dancing straight to the top! I love this.
Anthony: Disaster struck days before Ruth was due to arrive in Copenhagen. So after some much needed rest, has Ruth managed to bounce back from her road to recovery? I think I’m happy to say that Ruth has made a full recovery after all four run-throughs of Spain’s first rehearsal. She absolutely nailed it with her breathtaking vocals! Unsurprisingly, there were shouts of “¡Bravo!” from the Spaniards in the press centre after Ruth’s first run-through. And I’m loving the rain effects on the LED screens.
Patrick: I’m speechless… I was having an emotional breakdown when I saw Ruth performing on the stage. She is a wonderful person and she’s probably the best singer in this year’s competition! I only saw 30 seconds of the rehearsal so I can’t say really much about the staging, but it looked quite nice. The voice is marvelous and she doesn’t need to improve at all. I hope there will be some water on the performance! GRACIAS RUTH
