In the evening on the 14th of Febuary, Olivia Lewis and the team behind her song Vertigo, met the Prime Minister of Malta Dr. Lawrence Gonzi at his offices in Valletta. The Prime Minister commented on why Vertigo is such a good song for the Eurovision Song Contest, as it contains elements of different cultures, but also represents Malta's tradtional background.
Composer Phillip Vella and author Gerard James Borg, along with the two dancers from Olivia's Vertigo performance were present. They told the prime minister that they look forward to representthe country in Helsinki.
Olivia is constantly reminded of her landslide victory at the MSFE show which happened only 2 weeks ago. She is extremely popular with many Maltese people, and gets a lot of support.
Olivia Lewis will soon be heading towards Lithuania, probably to participate in the Lithuanian national Final, after visiting Cyprus and with a possible stopover in Latvia. In between Cyprus and Lithuania, Olivia will be staying in Malta for three days where the promo video clip for Vertigo will be shot. So far, apart from Lithuania and Cyprus, it has been confirmed that Olivia will be visiting Spain and Greece.
