Malta 2015: Dr. Bezzina back in Eurovision run
VALETTA, MALTA – On November 22nd, in Marsa, the Malta Eurovision Song Contest (MESC) will take place and the 28th Maltese Eurovision entrant will be chosen. Though the list of participants hasn’t been published yet, some names are starting to appear on the net.
A few weeks ago, we’ve learned that Ira Losco (the silver medalist in Tallinn 2002 contest) might bid with a song by Alexander Rybak (who won the trophy for Norway in Moscow 2009).
Today, another well-known name was revealed. The 2013 Maltese entrant, Dr Gianluca Bezzina, has decided to try his luck again to represent the archipelago in Vienna. Back in Malmö, Gianluca finished in an honorable 8th position. This time, the Maltese doctor will not be alone on stage.
5 of his 6 brothers and sisters will perform alongside the talented singer. Apart from Gianluca, the Bezzina family is no stranger to Eurovision. His sister Dorothy took part to the National selection on three previous occasions (2010, 2012 and 2013), and Samaria was a backing vocalist in Malmö. Moreover, last year the whole family performed the interval act at the MESC final with the song “I Need”.
As every year, the final list of participants for MESC 2014 will be presented on TVM by Peppi Azzopardi during a special edition of the Xarabank (The Bus) show, on October 3rd.
