-Kurt can relax now he has won his place in Baku
Who is Kurt Calleja? a new singer from Malta- who has worked previously in London town- and this is his third
try at Eurovision.
It was a long Final EuroSong 2012 contest in Malta last night with 16 songs competing for the one ticket to Baku. As the jury and tele-votes came in- with international juries from Turkey, France, Ireland, Italy & France. It was a clearly three-horse race between Kurt and Claudia Faniello's ballad 'Pure' & third placed Amber with 'Answer in your eyes'
Strong favourites from Richard Edwards & Fabrizio Faniello came 5th & 6th placing with this new voting system.
In 2010 Kurt Calleja debuted in Malta Song for Europe in a duet alongside Priscilla Psaila with the song Waterfall. In the following year he performed ‘Over and Over’, which he wrote alongside the swedish songwriter Johan J’amtberg, the song finished in 3rd place- Then Kurt was back in 2012 this time to find Eurovision glory with a place in the second Semi-Final in Baku
with 'This is my night'
We like this new up-beat tune for Malta- and fingers crossed we will have Kurt in the ESC Final in May.
