Ira Losco wins Malta Eurovision 2016!

After a hectic week full of interviews, plenty of rehearsals, the Malta Eurovision Song Contest has eventually come to an end. Good news on this, we have a winner and it is no other than the experienced Maltese singer Ira Losco!

As you may know, Ira represented Malta at the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest in Tallinn ranking 2nd with ”7th Wonder” (Philip Vella/Gerard James Borg). This time, the song is called ”Chameleon (Invincible)” but there is a chance the song can be changed into another one, as Ira told us when we met her on our previous interview.

Watch our exclusive video interview with Ira after her victory:

Apart from some other interval acts, Destiny Chukunyere took also part at the beginning of the show by singing her winning Junior Eurovision entry ”Not My Soul”, as well as after all the finalist performances.

About Adrián Valiente (Spain)

Adrián Valiente (Spain)
I love the Eurovision Song Contest not only because of its amazing production but it also gives me the chance to discover new music every year with hundreds of songs from all over Europe. I've been watching it since 2002, since then I became a huge follower, mostly because of the interest TVE put on it with Rosa from Spain. I've attended the contest three times, in Malmö, Copenhagen and Vienna; Stockholm will be my 4th. I also attended the Junior Eurovision in Malta and Bulgaria where we lived an amazing experienced thanks to all delegations and PBS/BNT organising team.
