Spanish eurofans are determined to avoid the shame they felt last year when Spain’s Carolina Casado read out the Spanish voting results at Eurovision. Surely you remenber that Carolina awarded “oitpoints” to Romania. Her mistake and thick Spanish accent sparked ridicule and anger from viewers. The hashtag #oitpoints flooded the Internet, and the issue even reached Parliament. In case you forgot…
This Sunday at 20:30 CET Ruth Lorenzo’s followers will try to make the hashtag #RuthLorenzoPointsESC trend on Twitter to pressure RTVE, the Spanish broadcaster, to avoid another #oitpoints disaster.

Ruth, who grew up in the United States and now splits her time between Spain and the United Kingdom, would do an amazing job. She’s got the language skills and she’s got the look. But does she have your support? Would you like to see her reading out the votes in Vienna?
