Former UK X-Factor contestant Ruth Lorenzo has succeeded where fellow competitor Eoghan Quigg was not able to this year in being the representative of their respective country at Eurovision. Lorenzo probably most famous for her Spanglish interpretations of songs like Prince’s Purple Rain and Bon Jovi’s ‘Always’, stays true to this as she sings ‘Dancing in the Rain’ in a mixture of English and Spanish.
Lorenzo does what she does best and hits out all the big notes in this power ballad. The song has a nice soft tone in the beginning and becomes more up tempo when the English chorus kicks in with violins and a drum beat that is reminiscent of Beyonce’s Halo. The song’s video interprets the Lyric’s literally and sees a male and female dancer do their best Strictly Come Dancing tribute in a courtyard’s man-made pond. Half way through the wind and rain machine kicks in and we see what everyone wants to see in a pop video: two beautiful people get wet.
In terms of betting odds the bookies have Lorenzo placing somewhere mid-field, but being a household name in the UK and Ireland should help her secure some points from the voting public.
