Eliana well prepared to represent Malta in Junior Eurovision Song Contest

Enthusiastic students at St Joseph’s school in Blata l-Bajda are rooting for their colleague Eliana Gomez Blanco before she leaves Malta en route to Poland, where she will be representing Malta in ten days’ time in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, in which she will be taking part together with representatives from 18 other countries.

Heaf of school Roberta Mifsud Bonnici said Eliana had always shown her musical talent. “Eliana had taken part in the school soiree, and we used to organise prize days.”

14-year-old Eliana will interpret the song ‘We Are More’ during the 17th edition of this festival, which has been won twice by Malta during the past six years.

Eliana Gomez Blanco stated that she is “very much looking forward, and prepared to bring honour to my country. We already communicate among ourselves and have become friends in advance, so I’m going there and looking forward to something else; when we meet up, we’re definitely going to be a happy crowd.”

Regarding her performance, Eliana said she is keeping this as a surprise, but she will do her utmost to come up with a great performance with her song ‘We Are More’.

“I am certain it will go down well with both Maltese and foreigners, and we will do our best to fine-tune it.” Asked about whether her performance will include a dance sequence, Eliana replied “It might, it might not… it’s a surprise.”

Maltese citizens both in Malta and abroad can start voting for their five favourite songs, including the Maltese song, as from Friday 22 November on the web portal junioeurovision.tv.

The festival will be broadcast live on TVM on Sunday 24 November.
