    My favorite is also Brequette but as per what I’m hearing seems that everyone (even “especialists”) are talking about Ruth Lorenzo. She is good though. She has a very good live perfomance and I’m sure that her song will improve a lot from here to Eurovision.
    But I find that Brequette’s song is more powerful, more pasionate. A good voice, a good look, a good song. Spain has never sent a song like this one, well I think that, it’s not a “normal eurovision’s song”. Finger crossed for Brequette!

    I must say I am really looking forward to Saturday. A major improvement in quality this year.
    Hope TVE Catalonia is up to the job and doesn’t dissapoint (as in previous years)
    Good luck to all but especially Ruth Lorenzo. The track is now a masterpiece.
