VIDEO / RAIN OF VOTES FOR RUTH PLEASE
OLIVIER: LA DIVA DE LA ARENA
One of the greatest voices this year! Ruth is just amazing and the stage looks so nice. That really makes us forget about last year’s out of tune performance from Spain. Spain is sending a powerful ballad this year and Ruth is perfectly delivering it, even though I must say that I’m not a big fan of “Dancing In The Rain”, a bit too old-fashioned for me, not to say boring sometimes. Many ballads this year, and I don’t think this is the best one. Luckily the simple staging is truly superb and helps the performance. A Top 10 for Spain would not surprise me, and I guess the Spanish diva deserves it.
FOTIS: THE BEST RECENT SPANISH ENTRY FOR ME
The best vocals and the best performance when it comes to interpretation for me this year. Ruth is outstanding and gives 1000% of herself convincing me that she is indeed dancing in the rain. The stage looks amazing and the camera work makes me feel that the graphics of rain are real. Well done Spain and I should check flights for Barcelona next year!
