We are delighted to confirm Malta’s entry to the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest – “Walk on Water”, which will be sung by Ira Losco. The presentation will be made as part of TVM’s evening news broadcast at 20:00 on Thursday 17 March. On Friday, Ira will be part of Friday’s Xarabank to present the new song.
“Walk on Water” was selected after international and Maltese jury voting during February and March. Juries in 13 European countries, comprising of music industry professionals, listened to 10 songs (nine new compositions, plus “Chameleon”), together with a panel of music experts from Malta. “Walk on Water” was the overwhelming favourite to represent Malta in Stockholm.
The video for Ira’s new song was filmed last week at the Malta National Aquarium, and across several locations in Gozo. The song was officially submitted to the European Broadcast Union before last weekend’s deadline.
