Semi Final 2
Artist: Claudia Faniello
Song: Breathlessly
odds: $151

word of the day:
ddisprata - Desperate
Really desperate to be in Eurovision... really...

There is no dispute with the odds given to this song. It is an average song that is severely over-sung. The only possible way this will qualify is if 8 contestants in the second semi suddenly withdraw, or are disallowed entry by the Ukrainian Authorities, or ze Germans... where ever Eurovision will be this year.

Claudia has been desperate to be Malta’s Eurovision entry, DESPERATE! From 2006 to 2013 she was in every edition of Malta’s song for Europe, sometimes with two songs. After a three year break Claudia returned this year with a song written by two of Malta’s most popular composers. Maybe the Maltese public voted Claudia through because they couldn’t handle another 8 years of Claudia in A Song for Europe.

Claudia’s brother has been to Eurovision twice, finishing 9th in 2001 and last in 2006. The last was deserved, and the 9th, well 2001 was a lean year. Fortunately Fabrizio realised he should quit. I hope Claudia learns soon too.

Malta quit Eurovision after 1975 only to return 16 years later. They needed that time away to improve… well everything. It could not have got worse.
