Malta finishes last – Fabrizio Faniello – Eurovision 2006


A controversy at the time arose on the tv programme Bondiplus between Grace borg and both current Maltasong chairman + Minister Francis Zammit Dimech.

However one should note that PBS’ programme Bondiplus showed a clip tonight how the Minister tried to talk to Maltese singer Keith Camilleri (who was representing Switzerland), and was actually stopped from doing this by Grace Borg herself!
On this programme, Grace Borg was heard alleging that Maltasong chairman Robert Abela was drunk in the green room. Fabrizio’s Agent confirmed on the programme that no such thing happened.

On a less serious note everyone seems to be looking for a parody videoclip by Joe Demicoli ‘I DO’… Hmm I didn’t see this myself but let’s see.. found it:

Malta only got ONE POINT in last night’s Eurovision 2006 – in Athens, Greece. A terrible result – we ended up last. Fabrizio did his best I’m sure.



Tonight Fabrizio Faniello will be representing Malta in Eurovision 2006. I think he will do well.

They changed the dance routine and removed the Tomb of the Cybermen bit.. 🙁

As usual everybody votes for their neighbours. I think we should stop taking part in Eurovision. It’s a joke.

Fabrizio’s CD has reached #1 in the Maltese Sales Charts!

Fabrizio has released his CD for his winning song “I Do”. The CD, a great production by Cap sounds and maltasong, contains 7 different mixes of the Eurovision song. Also it contains a high quality version of the music video.

Earlier story:

Fabrizio Faniello came first in yesterday’s Go Mobile Malta Song for Europe 2006 with 7729 votes. Olivia Lewis came second with 7623 votes and Trilogy were third with 4954 votes. There was no jury and all votes were decided by televoting.

Last year, Chiara came first with her song ‘Angel’. At Eurovision last year, some Brits compared her jokingly to a Dr Who alien (slitheen). My guess is this year there will be a comment about other Dr Who enemies, the Cybermen, since the dancers do a ‘Tomb of the Cybermen’-like entrance!

Fabrizio already represented Malta in Eurovision with his song “Another Summer Night” (which like ‘I Do’ can heard on Maltese Music Internet radio) back in 2001. This year he will be going to the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 and representing Malta with his song “I Do”.

Congratulations to Fabrizio! Good luck for ESC2006!

Fabrizio was the special guest at the Cyprus National Eurovision Final on 22nd February; the special guest at the Bulgarian National Contest For Eurovison Song (Semi Final) in Sofia, Bulgaria on the 25th February; the special guest at the Latvian National Eurovision Final “Eirodziesma 2006” on 11th March.
