Back in May 2014, just weeks after her Top 10 placing at the Eurovision Song Contest, Ruth Lorenzo told Spanish broadcaster RTVE that she wanted to return to Eurovision by 2017. “I would like to repeat [the experience],” she said. “The production and the technical staff were impressive and I really enjoyed the festival.”

Ruth, who overcame stomach issues just a week before the grand final, also said that she wanted to perform a song in a completely different style next time.

It’s now known that Ruth is in talks with RTVE ahead of Eurovision 2020, but the final decision is theirs to make. And as we all wait, her army of fans is standing by her side — so much so that they pushed #RuthLorenzoEurovision2020 to the top of the Twitter trends in Spain on Sunday.

 

Amid all the chatter and hullabaloo, the “Dancing in the Rain” hitmaker took to social media to thank her fans. She also revealed her thinking on the matter, showing that her passion for the contest still exists but that she’s approaching with caution.

As Formula TV reports, Ruth said that “other candidates are on the table” and that she has no idea what the broadcaster’s decision will be.

“I do not know what will happen and I do not want to get my hopes up either,” she said.

But if she gets the chance, you better believe this queen will polish her crown so it shines real bright.

“Many people ask me if I’m afraid of finishing last. I would simply do what I always do in my career and in my day to day, which is to do my best.”

She also revealed that she’s got an amazing song ready to go.

Some heavy hitters are gathering behind her. Xuso Jones, who we fell in love with in 2016 when he performed “Victorious” in Spain’s national final, sent Ruth a reminder of her greatness.

Xuso — real name Jesús Segovia Pérez — shared the following video of a fan watching Ruth’s celebratory victory moment in Mira quién va a Eurovisión — Spain’s 2014 national final.

The hype surrounding Ruth Lorenzo is about far more than her powerful voice. The Murcia-born beauty managed to leverage Eurovision and turn the experience into a proper career, releasing single after single, and showcasing her telegenic smile and knack for drama in a series of stunning music videos.

Most recently she unleashed her sensuality in the music video for “Underworld”, which saw her preparing to exhume her lover’s body, which, of course, had been buried in the underworld.

During the story, images of Ruth portrayed as a goddess and a devil appear. One minute she’s dancing with a choir of “angels” with white and golden gowns, and the next, she’s a blood thirsty devil sitting on an iron throne. Yas, gawd!

Perhaps most importantly, Ruth has an impressive track record of writing her own music, which straddles the line between pop and poetry. In 2017, her song “Good Girls Don’t Lie” came eighth in our annual countdown of the top tracks released by Eurovision artists. That built on her earlier successes including “99” (#9 in 2015), “Echo” (#26 in 2015), “Gigantes” (#10 in 2014). Can’t stop. Won’t stop.

Are you excited that Ruth seems keen to represent Spain at Eurovision 2020? Do you want to see her go uptempo? And do you think RTVE would be wise to send her again? Let us know down below!

Can she not apply for the UK ? She is well known and liked here. Better still she can sing the pants off most people.

Ruth doesn’t need it. She’s made a successful career in Spain from her first ESC participation and even WON Your Face Sounds Familiar. If she does ESC again and loses, she’ll have to start her career back-up again. I’d rather see her on X-Factor All Stars instead.

I love Spain in Eurovision. If there’s no drama, we create it! <3 and there WILL be drama, for sure!

As much as I love Ruth, I think it’s high time Spain tries something different. My call would be Malva, who released their first single post-X Factor last Friday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0j_Rnlvzl8

As long as she has a great song, she can go all the way through Tamara road. Wish her luck.

This is getting annoying. She’s talented but i feel like others should have a chance.

spanish eurofans should start the hashtag #sendadescentsongRTVE. The problem is the song (and the perfomance), not the artists. Spain has plenty of talented people

To be fair, I wasn’t a huge fan of “Dancing In The Rain”, but if she were to come back with a better song, that’ll be fine too! If the new voting system had been used back in 2014, Spain would’ve been 15th, instead of 10th. I don’t know how much creative freedom RTVE allow their artists to have, all they need to do is try and get Spain back into the top 20 again at least LOL.

If she doesn’t go, RTVE needs to send Aitana with a Latino bop!

True, but not sure if Aitana is interested in Eurovision contest… Some news said the thing is between Ruth and Diana Navarro, but for me there are more names on the list.
