During the past days Annet Artani, the Greek-American singer representing Cyprus at this year's Eurovision Song Contest, visited Malta as part of her promotour.

Thanks to the collaboration with Maltasong, local club members of OGAE Malta had the opportunity to meet the Greek-American singer representing Cyprus during her visit in Malta.

Annet seeks to touch our hearts
During her chat with some members of the Maltese Eurovision fan club, the 26 year old singer said that although she was born and raised in America, she always felt close to her Greek roots. She also feels close to the sister island, Cyprus which she is representing at this year's Eurovision Song Contest. Her love for Reiki and Yoga keeps her down to earth and humble. Annet says that she is not after materialistic fame but after a research of the soul and touching the hearts of her audiences through her music.

Plans for Athens revealed on Eurovision Fever
Speaking about her plans for the Eurovision Song Contest, Annet announced that she will be accompanied by 5 backing vocalists among whom the backing vocalist with whom she backed Britney Spears in her Dream Within A Dream tour. A gospel touch is what we're expecting from this year's Cypriot Eurovision entry.

During the same show, Annet expressed her wish to duet with the Maltese entry singer, Fabrizio Faniello, something like international popstars Anastacia and Eros Ramazotti did together lately.

Speaking about the disappointing result obtained by Cypriot star, Constantinos last year, Annet said that it must have been a bad day for the Cypriot artist as he surely didn't deserve such a low score. Annet described the semi-finals round as 'a hurdle sent by God to test our strengths.'.

Annet or Annette?
But…is it Annet or Annette? Here is her reply: “In America my name is written as ANNETTE but I was adviced to use ANNET in Europe, thus avoiding being called Annet-Te.”

Speaking about her favourites from this year's Eurovision Song Contest, Annet named the Greek, the Swedish and the Maltese entries as her current favourites.

A repetition of Annet Artani's interview on Eurovision Fever will be repeated this Sunday on Super One Tv at 17:35CET. Click here for a live webcast.
