The Ira Losco fiasco upon MESC participation / Updated
VALLETTA, MALTA – Since last night announcement by PBS for the 48 preliminary artists and songs of MESC 2015, all eurovision fan sites were stunned Ira Losco was not among the participants. Especially since she spread the rumours about potential participation through Facebook.
The team of oikotimes.com is in a position to know that Ira Losco and her team had a bid ready for participation. What happened? Did they withdraw the last minute? Did she afraid the competition with the Rybak / Calleja collaboration? Did PBS eliminated them in advance?
Ira Losco responds through Facebook that what she meant with her social media message was that she is considering a bid for Malta for 2016! (yeah right, we are so convinced of that!). At the moment, Ira is working on two new singles release and an album, a plan timetabled for the next 2 years! (the metro in Athens will be built sooner than her album).
The question is: if she wasn’t support to take part in 2015 national selection, why did she loose the bid to host Junior Eurovision which takes place next November in Malta? Can’t be that stupid!
It seems that PBS will invite some artists as wildcards to the selection. Ira Losco could be amongst them. We have to wait until October 3rd and see what happens.
