Nicole meets the PM


nicole azzopardi malta prime minister


11 November 2010

Tomorrow, the Maltese delegation will leave for Minsk! As part of her preparations, last Tuesday Nicole was invited by the Prime Minister of Malta, Dr Laurence Gonzi to Auberge De Castille.

They were greeted in a large and beautiful dining and later were escorted to join the PM in the Cabinet room (the place where members of parliament meet).

There The PM and Nicole discussed the song + performance. Nicole introduced all the team to the PM and presented him with a copy of the CD.

He was delighted to receive Nicole and her team and he showed them around his office and explained to Nicole that he is sure of the ability of the Maltese team, but also stressed that fortune plays an important role in this kind of activity.  He encouraged the girls to have fun as this is truly a unique experience that they will cherish for life.

Present for the meeting were Daniel d’Anastasi, Team Manager, Nicole’s parents, members of the department of information and Marc Calleja Bayliss from www.escflashmalta.com

Unfortunately Sarah could not make it as the Gozo Ferry boats were not working on schedule due to high winds hitting the islands.

Anja’s english version


9 November 2010

Anja Veterova from Macedonia today released the English version of her Junior Eurovision song “Magicna pesna (Eo Eo)” as part of her promotion in the lead up to JESC.
Eo, Eo
I have no magic lamp
Eo, Eo
I believe in fairytales
Eo, Eo
But I have a magic song
I’ll call it eo

Now we can understand the song even better, although the video was already very illustrative. Part of the lyrics talk of how she is seeing the Leaning Tower of Pisa from Paris.. artistic license?
In Italy I ate pizza
In Paris I saw Eiffel Tower
And the leaning tower of Pisa
It’s a great song, and could do very well in JESC with a good performance. See the English version with the video below!



Also, don’t forget to vote for your favourite entry in our poll to the left! Results will be revealed soon!

The long awaited videoclip from Latvia’s Sarlote Lenmane has finally been released. It’s very fun and suits the song perfectly. Latvia is definitely a contender in 2010 and perhaps for the first time ever in JESC.
