TVE did it again! The demands of the Spanish Eurofans have fallen on deaf ears. The Spanish broadcaster has announced that Ruth Lorenzo will not be presenting the Spanish vote results this year.

The passionate Iberian followers of the contest launched an aggressive social media campaign some months ago to avoid a repeat of last year’s embarrassing #oitpoints moment from Carolina Casado. As we reported at the time, the presenter had a super cringe linguistic slip-up when announcing the results.

The #oitpoints campaign has failed and TVE has decided to give the vital task to journalist Lara Siscar instead of the brilliant and bilingual Ruth Lorenzo. The journalist is one of the presenters of the weekend news broadcast which has small and falling audiences. We are unaware of her level of English abilities, but she is somewhat of a serious character for the Eurovision style. We might get surprised, though.

And possibly to counteract the criticism of the Eurovision fans, TVE will prepare a dedicated Eurovision package, including live webcasting of Edurne’s performances in the Euroclub and Eurovision Village. To put the icing on the cake, on 23rd May TVE will show the 60th Eurovision anniversary gala just before the grand final.

Will we enjoy #oitpoints again this year?

Nobody mentions the fact that Ruth is a member of the jury ?
And, honestly, the spanish spokesperson is always an highlight especially for us italians because often awards many points to us (thank you Spain!) and are very
very funny in an otherwise boring and flat and endless defilè of ugly faces

What I said wasn’t rude. The fact is you keep making homosexual-like remarks in your comments everywhere over this site, and it really isn’t necessary. Freedom of speech? Ok. But I don’t like seeing your references like ‘GreAtY’. Please.

We have better options than that nobody woman… At least Carolina was fun.

I don’t understand why TVE hardly ever selects famous ppl to announce the voting results.

Ruth Lorenzo, Elsa Pataky, Penélope Cruz… they are famous in Europe and can speak English.

True, Carolina Casado was a disgrace for us last year and for that she was pushed in front of a pack of raging bulls. That will teach her. BUT… – At least our presenters NEVER sing (hello Sweden, Russia, Belarus, Azerbaijan…) – At least our presenters NEVER rap (Hello Finland) – At least our presenters NEVER pretend to be funny (hello Lithuania, Finland and many other I can’t remember right now, you know who you are) – At least our presenters NEVER say a wrong country and have to correct themselves (hello Lena…) – At least our presenters NEVER appear… Read more »

Mario please stop……

As for this Lara Siscar woman, I generally don’t mind the spokespersons, just as long as they don’t annoy you by taking forever to announce the points (Poland 2011), shriek loudly and unnecessarily (Azerbaijan 2012), are too serious (Montenegro 2013) or try to be funny but aren’t (Slovenia 2013).

Well i would actually prefer if the Grand Final of our EuroVision had more breaks that would last longer..
4 such short breaks to exist it doesn’t allow us to take care of our business properly & we are doing them with so much rush..

Not only that but with the system of voting to get changed & 4 all the songs to start receiving points {except the last one}
i would certainly not mind at all if our EuroVision contest lasted over 4 hours <3 🙂

” TVE will show the 60th Eurovision anniversary gala just before the grand final.”
Are they serious? Almost five hours of Eurovision’s music? Even for great fans it could be a challenge. I’m always so tired after 3 hours (from excitement) and after 5?:)
