After four hours, yes four hours, Malta finally chose its song for the Eurovision Song Contest. It came down to a close run thing between the songs This is the Night and Pure, with the former sung by Kurt Calleja winning out in the end by a matter of a few points.
Different to its usual earnest ballads, This is the Night is an uptempo number that wouldn’t be out of place at a hotel disco anywhere across the Mediterranean. I’ve a feeling it will appeal to Euro Song devotees and garner enough points to make the Final. Not the winner though.
Here it is. What do you think?
