The fabulous Ira Losco was a mere 12 points away from securing Malta their first ever victory in 2002 and “Walk on Water” presents a very realistic chance for Malta to secure a Top 5 finish in 2016.
Although this is not the winning song that Losco performed at the Maltese internal selection competition, “Walk on Water” is a vibrant and catchy piece of dance-pop that will translate well on stage.
Hopefully Ira will ditch the Real Housewives of Melbourne attire and hair-styling and crank the wind machine to cyclonic as she attempts to secure Eurovision’s ultimate bridesmaid its first ever win.
