Hi
I still believe it’s going to be Malta’s secret Swedish weapon – Kevin Borg!

He is known in Sweden and the 2013 ESC is in Malmo, so what? The other countries’ votes count just as much. His song is just another one of those ballads… with just a litle too much sugar in it. Malta might like it though.

I think Kevin since he is known in SWEDEN, should be the best choice. I howevefr have not HEARD any of the songs yet, so I am giving my opinion purely on what I think will work given that 2013 is in Malmo
