The Spanish singer Monica Naranjo gave her opinion on the Spanish entry for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest and on the event itself in an interview. And it is not a positive impression…

In an interview to the on-line magazine Teleprograma the Spanish artist Mónica Naranjo gave her impression about the choice made by her country’s broadcaster RTVE for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. She believes that the artist, Ruth Lorenzo, is a good picking, but the song, Dancing in the rain, is not. I didn’t like it, she stated; for a singer like her, that song is poor.

Ruth Lorenzo won the Spanish national selection on 22 February. Mónica Naranjo was in the jury that night with Merche and David Bustamante. She voted for Brequette, but nevertheless she accepted the final decision. That’s what the audience wanted, isn’t it? Then that’s it.

When asked why she had never attempted to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest, she was adamant about the reason: Mónica believes that the contest is boring and predictable. Furthermore, in her opinion the Contest is rigged and the winner is decided beforehand. If my Pastora Soler didn’t win, this is rigged, she declared.

Her opinion about the Eurovision Song Contest has surprised the Spanish press since Mónica Naranjo was in the jury that helped chose the Spanish entry for Copenhagen.

Ruth Lorenzo will represent Spain in the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Dancing in the rain.
