Let’s start with the sad, sad fact that Malta has never won the Eurovision. Ever.
Then, let me kick this (metaphorical) sad puppy while it’s already weeping on the ground by adding that I don’t think they’ll win this year either.
Despite this being a half-decent song in a sing-along-a-smile kind of way, picture it being performed in a massive arena. This video works as it tells a story. In front of an audience of screaming, flag-waving loons, this will get lost. They’ll struggle to sell it in a live setting and will be upstaged by someone wearing a crazy costume or performing vocal acrobatics.
Which is sad, as this is the best song Malta has entered in some time.
Maybe next year, guys.
