Poll results: Ira Losco should win the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with “Chameleon”

When Malta’s PBS revealed that Eurovision 2002 runner-up Ira Losco would make a return to the Malta Eurovision Song Contest this year, jaws dropped. It’s obvious that many of our readers still have their chins planted firmly on the ground, as the “Chameleon” singer has won our poll “Who should win MESC 2016?” in a landslide.

We received a total of 2,650 votes and Miss Losco earned  517 of them — or around 20% of all those cast. Yes, she really did slay the pack. Although she finished a very close second with the Wiwi Jury, our in-house panel of musical unprofessionals, she drew heavy praise indeed. One juror described it as “the comeback we’ve all been waiting for,” while another said “the masterful opening sets the stage for a musical orgasm.”

Corazon, who we recently spoke with at the PBS Studios in Valletta, came second with 292 votes or around 11% of all those cast. She finished fifth with the Wiwi Jury. “Corazon’s voice is pure seduction,” one juror wrote. “Baby, I’ll do whatever you want so long as you want it!”

Daniel Testa finished third in our poll with “Under the Sun.”
