Former UK X Factor finalist Ruth Lorenzo sings ‘Dancing in the Rain’ for Spain on the Eurovision 2014 Song Contest.
At the age of twelve, Ruth and her family left Murcia in Spain, and immigrated to the United States. There, Ruth took every music, theatre, dance and choir lesson she could find and was entered into competitions and developed her singing and stage skills by playing the lead roles in The Phantom of the Opera and My Fair Lady.
In 2008 she decided to try out auditioning for The X Factor where she made it all the way to the live finals.
At a recent press conference she was asked what result she’d like to bring back to Spain. She said: “I want to be number one. But if my performance is a 10/10 I will be really happy whatever the result”.
