Are your Eurodrama levels a bit low? Then let us do something about that. Rewind to 2014, the last time that Spain had a decent result at Eurovision, which came courtesy of Ruth Lorenzo, who placed 10th with “Dancing in the Rain”. After her fantastic performance, the diva promised to come back in 2017.
That is next year and we at wiwibloggs would be beyond excited to see the Spanish starlet live up to her word. Ruth promised to come back for gold and, after two disappointing results, Spanish fans crave a Top 5 finish. (According to Barei, Head of Delegation Federico Llano may not, but the fans most certainly do).
Has Ruth already teased something?
We’ve consulted the stars, spoken with our soothsayers and even scoured Ruth’s social media, and so far there is nothing that provides a strong link to a potential return.
I mean, there was this enigmatic tweet, but you really have to get creative to link it to a potential ESC bid.
Ese momento en el que dudas…..

(That moment when you doubt…)
What we know so far is that Ruth is currently recording new material in Los Angeles with world class producers including Lester Méndez, Erika Nuri Taylor and Greg Ogan, who have written songs for the likes of Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears or Meghan Trainor.

But there is something that Spanish Eurofans have been going crazy about.

Start hyperventilating because Ruth retweeted a tweet that said she’ll announce new stuff in September. The official deadline for submitting songs to Eurovision is, of course, in September. And the tweet features her big moment on the Eurovision stage. YAAAAAAAS!
Yes, it’s all a bit tenuous.
Lesbihonest, that tweet can mean anything, from a new single to new dates on her tour (which kicks off at the end of the year) to a come back on “Your Face Sounds Familiar” as a judge.
But you know how we love to speculate, and when it comes to Ruth, it’s impossible not to think that she wants to mount her Eurovision comeback and help Spain slay for the first time in years.
And what a better moment that when you’re about to release your second album, for which you have recorded songs with world class producers in Los Angeles? We’re sure Ruth is a woman who keeps to her word, and so far, she offers the best package for a potential Spanish entry in 2017 (as much as we love Mirela too, of course).
Do you think Ruth will end up representing Spain again? Will she be able to improve on her 10th place finish? If not, who should represent Spain in 2017? Share your thoughts below!
