Sirusho to guest star at Maltese Final

Sirusho who represented Armenia in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2008 is the international special guest for the Malta Eurosong 2010.

Less than one week for the Maltese national final and the national broadcaster PBS managed to bring an international guest to perform in the show. PBS made various attempts to bring a Eurovision artist. Close sources to PBS stated that the organisers searched for a popular Eurovision singer.

Sirusho who happens to remain popular with her beaty ethnic entry ‘Qele Qele’ was one of the best choices for PBS to attract more interest in the show. Sirusho reached a respectable fourth place in Belgrade. Talks were made with the managements behind Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak and runner-up Yohanna. The Norwegian singer is scheduled to sing in the Slovenian final known as EMA and therefore he couldn’t make it to the Maltese islands to appear in the national final.

The guests list includes Mary Spiteri who brought the first third place for Malta in 1992 and Chiara. The latter owns three Eurovision participations and came close twice to lift the trophy.

Meanwhile as from tomorrow the rehearsals for the twenty finalists kicks-off in the venue where the Maltese national final will take place next Saturday. The winner of the Malta Eurosong 2010 final will represent the country in the first semi-final of the next Eurovision Song Contest.
