Ruth Lorenzo - Planeta Azul (debut Spanish album)

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by DoggySwami, Oct 1, 2014.

  1. After her good result in Eurovision, her new single has just premiered on Spain's biggest radio station.

    Radio rip:

    I bet there will be an English version of this.

    She should give Eurovision another go. Nobody stood a chance against Conchita this year.

    It's actually a very nice song. It only bugs me that she's ended up singing the same commercial stuff she would have been doing with the record deal she got after The X-Factor.

    I loved her on X Factor. Loved.

    She went all P!nk and Cheryl last Friday performing the single:

    Me, too.
     
  8. She has re-released the album with new songs, a few English tracks and definitely a better/more appropriate cover:

    Nowadays she is also part of a Spanish TV show where the contestants imitate a famous artist every week. She's made some memorable performances so far:

    Lady Gaga's Edge of Glory


    Sinéad O'connor's Nothing Compares 2 U


    Tina Turner's Proud Mary


    Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé's Barcelona


    Whitney Houston's I Have Nothing


    The show is a big hit in Spain, so it's great exposure for her.
     
  9. She performed as Conchita Wurst last Friday:

  11. I'm not quite sure we would get away with this programme on UK tv.
     
  12. I guess we kinda did with (Celebrity) Stars In Their Eyes. Samantha Fox did Dusty Springfield.
     
  13. As a matter of fact there was an UK version in 2013. It was the usual ITV summer show/flop. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Your_Face_Sounds_Familiar_(UK_TV_series)

    It's a very hard show to replicate, because the chemistry among contestants and judges is just as important as the performances. Any sign of conflict and you've ruined the atmosphere. Plus, in comparison, it seems ITV didn't invest too much in getting famous contestants.

    Oh dear at the blackface - do better, hun.
     
  15. She was sensational tonight as Florence and the Machine. Vocally, of the best performances I've seen of her.

     
  16. This was more at what I was getting at.
