The coming week should have seen the staging of this year’s edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, in which Malta was due to be represented by Destiny and the song ‘All of My Love’.
Although everything has vanished in the light of COVID-19, the countries that were due to participate, including Malta, are to organise an initiative to celebrate a week of musical spectacles throughout Europe.
Eurovision experts believe that Malta would have proceeded to the final with a good result
Before everything was called off the electronic site that closely analyses the musical spectacle, wiwibloggs.com, argued the question was not whether Malta will qualify for the final but which placing it would obtain in the final classification.
Although everything has now vanished into thin air, the video musical of ‘All of my love’ interpreted by Destiny was voted as the best video among the 41 competitors that were due to feature this year.
Deban Aderemi from wiwiblogs.com, a popular site much followed during Eurovision, said Malta obtained a vote out of every ten registered.
“This would have been Malta’s year, it was gunning for the top, gunning for victory, a victory so well deserved,” said Aderemi.
A taste of the Eurovision Song Contest: on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday this coming week on TVM
Although the musical spectacle destined to be staged in Holland has been shelved for this year it has been proposed to be held in Holland next year and Eurovision week can still be enjoyed on the national station.
On Tuesday and Thursday, Television Malta is to broadcast a tribute to the singers and their songs that were due to compete during the semi-finals. The transmission will also contain nostalgia of the best Eurovision Song Contest moments for Malta in past years.
On Saturday, 16th May when the final was due to be staged, all the scheduled competitors will unite on the theme ‘Shine a Light’. This will also be screened by Television Malta and will feature singers that were due to compete in link-ups with a number of countries.
