The flaming piano of 2015 has been doused and replaced by flowing frocks and flowers for Austria who are hoping to avoid the dreaded NUL POINT result of last year. This inoffensive and sweet entry is performed in French…yes, an Austrian entry in French – it’s Eurovision folks, anything goes!
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.
