Ruth Lorenzo Pascual is a Spanish singer-songwriter from Murcia. She is best known for being a finalist in the 2008 series of The X-Factor in the United Kingdom where she placed fifth overall.
She won the right to represent Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in a closely-fought race at the Spanish national final with eventual runner-up Brequette, who were tied after the public and jury vote. With the tiebreaker reverting to the public vote, it swung in Ruth's favor and she won the ticket to Copenhagen. Her song Dancing in the Rain, which she co-wrote, finished 10th overall in the final making it the highest-placing entry among the Big Five nations.
She is currently working on her debut solo album Planeta Azul, which will be released later this year
