Welcome along to the latest summary article in ESC Views’ Pre-Contest Vote 2014! If you haven’t heard about it and how this entire system will work, feel free to click this fabulous link to take you to the ‘Launch Page’ of the competition. As we manage to compile more and more of these articles, they will be added to the Launch Page, so you can freely hop between all 37 competing entries! Right, shall we get onto the next country?
This is how we’re running this series of articles in which we’re going to cover all 37 entries for this year:
- We’re going to take on these articles in the running order for 2014 (Armenia is first, Latvia is second etc). We’ll do two articles a day.
- We’ll refer back to the Song Presentation or NF Review of the song. We’ll provide you with the video so you can have a listen (if you haven’t managed to listen to it yet…which is highly unlikely!)
- We’ll also give you a few words from both of us while giving the song a score out of 12.
- Finally, there’ll be a poll below for you guys to vote and give us your points on the song!
Got it? 🙂
Back on the launch page, you can catch up with all the countries we’ve covered so far, but today, it’s time for Spain! After a much-hyped national final, which was a complete joy to watch, UK X Factor alumni Ruth Lorenzo was eventually chosen as the 2014 Spanish representative, with the dramatic R&B ballad “Dancing In The Rain”. She will perform in both English and Spanish for the contest. While we wait, why not check out the impressive music video for the song:
Rory – I have always been a fan of Ruth Lorenzo and the fact that she won MQVAE is just amazing. ‘Dancing In The Rain’ will definitely do well with a good vocal performance on the night – something that Ruth will undoubtedly give. Score: 8 points out of 12.
James – I haven’t got this one in my top ten but it’s not far off – really exciting song which is vocally stunning… I only wish the live performance would involve that IMMENSE dance routine from the video! Score: 8 points out of 12.
So now that you know what we think of the Spanish song, what do you think of it? Tell us by voting in the poll!
Did you vote? Well by the end of this series, we’ll know how many of you fans love/like/hate Spain’s song! In the meantime, though, stay tuned to ESC Views, as we shall be finishing off the automatic finalists imminently!
