Malta Gets Vertigo… Olivia loses EUROVISION 2007 PRESELECTIO

Olivia who represented Malta with the song Vertigo, failed to obtain enough televiewer votes to quality for the EUROVISION 2007 final…
Sorry for the lack of photos but that’s due to the missing Press Section on the official Olivia Lewis site.

My comments – it’s useless sending two “popular” people for the choreography – nobody knows them abroad anyway. Also what does Dracula have to do with the Japanese motif? I didn’t get that.

Next time, we should send either Lucienne Cassar (who won LA CORRIDA)
or a trio of Joe Demicoli, Martin Sapiano and is-Sur Gawdenz!

Soon viewers will be voting for the song which will be representing Malta in Eurovision 2007, from the finalists Scar, Klinsmann Coleiro, Pamela, Olivia, Kevin Borg, Trilogy.
Voting is all in the hands of the public – 100% televoting.
Todays voting numbers are different from the semifinal voting numbers…

Comment – olivia’s song featured two well known tv personalities (Eg joseph who is a lawyer too).. did that influence the voting process?
