Participant(s): Olivia LEWIS Song: Vertigo Writer(s): Gerard James BORG Composer(s): Philip VELLA
Due to the fact that Italy has no more interest in participating in the Eurovision Song Contest, Malta has been proofed as a new kind of ambassador for south Italian life spirit. Indeed the results of Malta are remarkably good. A touch of the Mediterranean feeling is always in Maltese entries, so this year Olivia Lewis is going to sing a very strong song. This one should not be underestimated, as it combines melody, rhythm and harmony within one song. Malta also has to qualify in the semifinal, the competition is enormously high – 28 competitors fighting for one of the ten spots left in the final.
