The Maltese 2017 entrant Claudia Faniello is yet one more Eurovision artist to release her Eurovision song in another language. Thus, Claudia has released a new version of her entry Breathlessly in Italian , titled Perdersi (Disappear).
Claudia approaches her second homeland
As Claudia stated in the beginning of the video, she is half-Italian and that’s the reason for choosing that language for the remake of her song. On the eve of the ESC rehearsals in Kyiv, the new version of the song was released today.
Italian is also a language widely spoken in Malta, due to its geographical location below Italy. Thus, it’s quite possible that this version will touch the Italian-speaking audience and make Claudia even more famous in her second homeland.
Claudia Faniello rehearses for the first time in Kyiv at 11:00 CET on Tuesday 2 May in Kyiv. She will perform 4th in the second semi-final evening on 11 May. The 62nd Eurovision Song Contest will take place on 9, 11 and 13 May at the IEC in Kyiv, Ukraine.
