Ruth Lorenzo is a woman of many virtues — and one of them is keeping her word. In a recent interview with RNE’s ‘No es un día cualquiera’, the Spanish songstress reaffirmed her will to wave her country’s flag at Eurovision 2017 in Kyiv!
Ruth’s promise has been on Eurofan minds ever since the summer of 2014.
Right after her stunning performance at Eurovision, she appeared on RTVE and stated publicly that she was riding on a high and was still amazed by the experience. She also promised to come back in three years. That means 2017 should be her time, as we pointed out some weeks ago.
Ruth after Copenhagen: “I’ll come back in 2017”
During the recent interview on RNE, Ruth was joined by RTVE’s commentator, José María íñigo (yes, he who feels “too lazy” to go to Eurovision in Ukraine), and they reminisced over their time in Copenhagen.
The singer said that her favourite moments came during the bus trips to the arena with her crew, when they had fun and relaxed a bit before she hit the stage at B&W Hallerne.
Then Ruth told José María: “If you’re in, I’m in”.
Back in May, he was not so sure. But in this more recent interview he seemed quite ready to take the job for the sixth year in a row (although he had one more gaffe and said that Eurovision was going to be held in Armenia and not in Ukraine, but weeeeell, he’s already in his 70s, so we’ll let that slide).
At the end of the day, Ruth is ready and we are more than ready to have her back. Our bodies need this. It’s worth pointing out that our girl is recording her second album, which should be released in 2017, after she finishes her “Tour Voces 2016” later this year.
Ruth has plenty of songs to choose from, explaining that she’s currently sifting through over 50 songs, and that she has divided them into categories to pick from for the album: her favourites, the decent fillers and the “less interesting”.
Will Spain’s Eurovision song for 2017 be amongst Ruth’s favourites? Only time will tell! Meanwhile, let’s remember what this lady can do on a Eurovision stage:
Ruth has been on everybody’s mind from the moment Barei left the stage in Stockholm. But what do you think about her comeback? Will she be able to surpass her 10th place finish with “Dancing in the rain”?
