Chiara Siracusa has a big voice—and a body to match. The Maltese songstress has competed in Eurovision twice—first in 1998, then in 2005. Could the third time be a charm?


Why Malta May Win:

Chiara’s uplifting ballad will resonate with the millions of Europeans who have lost their jobs in recent months. And unlike many of the other entries, she doesn’t need electronic synthesizers or background singers to distract people from her true sound. Lady can sing! She can even sing Beyonce Knowles!

Despite being one of Eurovision’s most famous past contestants, Chiara remains humble and good-natured. In fact, she has even kept her day job as a secretary.

Why Malta May Not:

First, providing a message of hope for unemployed Europeans won’t translate into votes if said Europeans can no longer afford to text in their votes. And perhaps they prefer to cope with their stress by engaging in casual sex. That makes any number of the upbeat-and-erotic dance songs more appealing.

Second, a beautiful voice doesn’t always shine brighter than a beautiful body. Chiara’s 2005 performance was superior to Greece’s Elena Paparizou (The Greek’s crap lyrics included “You’re my lover. Undercover. You’re my secret passion and I have no other”) but by shaking everything that God gave her, Elena walked away with the title.

Third, Chiara’s song sounds pretty similar to her 2005 entry. Voters may feel like they’ve heard it all before.

Prediction:

Malta will breeze through the first semi-final. She’s lucky enough to perform 17th, and will be a welcome relief to the judges following non-stop booty-shaking from the likes of Montenegro and Turkey.

Final: The public will likely grow sick of hearing about Norway’s fiddle playing Alexander Rybok and Greece’s sex bomb Sakis Rouvas and Malta could prove to be the spoiler. Barring that, a Top 4 finish is likely and a Top 10 finish is guaranteed.

What do you think? Does Malta have a chance to win this year? Can she overcome Norway and Greece?

I don’t agree, Chiara will qualify because she is charismatic! It’s not about the excessive dancing or shouting on stage, but it’s all about touching people and reaching others through music. That’s the true artist, and this is greater than physical beauty. Chiara was alone on the stage in 1998 and 2005, and yet she got 2nd and 3rd places. That’s all. 🙂 Good luck Chiara and MALTA. Keep heading straight this time!!

[…] is a global superstar. Chiara is a Maltese secretary. Beyoncé is known for shaking her booty. Chiara is known for the size of hers. But those differences can’t mask one obvious similarity: both of these ladies can sing! […]

[…] Malta’s Chiara Siracusa proved her versatility on Thursday evening, performing a dance version of her ballad What If We at a contestants party hosted by the delegation from Belarus. Wiwi thinks the performance was smokin’ and wonders if Chiara should have chosen the upbeat version for the actual ESC. […]

Hey, good catch! You’re probably right. It’s such a catchy song. Do you think they can secure a Top 10 finish?

As usual Chiara always present a fantastic song which is more about the song and the voice than about the sarounding.Chiara can sing anywhere her voice and her hambleness is eneough for her to win.But everyone knows that sometimes Eurovision is more about neighbours/countries than about the actual song.Good Luck to Malta/Chiara from everyone in thUK & iRELAND

Personally, I don’t think that Chiara will qualify. There are lots of good songs in semi-final 1, however she is more likely to qualify from this one than she if from the second one. The draw will favour her, but I think that both Chiara and Malena will lack the votes to qualify, but that the backup jury will save Malena over Chiara. Both of them are outstanding singers, however, Malena has a better imagine, will have a better presentation and a more lively song, whilst still containing elements of balladness, which the jury will like. The scale and the… Read more »
