Malta 2016: will finally Ira Losco submit a song?
VALLETTA, MALTA – All across Europe everyone is preparing for Eurovision in Stockholm next may. One of the country that has quiet been quiet for now is the little Isle of Malta which had already amazing results which two runners up with Ira Losco and Chiara in both 2005 and 2002 and Chiara lost again by Helena Paparizou back in 2005.
However it’s very clear that Malta is very keen, after hosting the Junior Eurovision in 2015, they want to host the Eurovision the soonest possible. The deadline to submit song is in the end of October and many rumours are going on already. Gianlucca Bezzina (2013) already stated he will not enter any song in this years competition.
However rumours are growing that Ira Losco, the runner-up from the 2002 ESC will finally make her return! For many years this rumours were made, but early October Ira stated this clearly on a radio interview which you can hear here (from 1h34min onwards)
However keep in mind Ira stated she thought about it since last year, so maybe this time it’s about time to get her back and get the trophy to Malta?
