Patrick: Malta have really improved their vocals since the national selection and I really adore the selfie background. The staging is not really surprising and, dare I say it, a bit boring. But that doesn’t matter. I don’t care about the performance, and I don’t like the flower background…but I love the song. Their strong vocals more than make up for any visual shortcomings.
Wiwi: Sometimes less is more, and Malta clearly understands that. Rather than hitting us over the head with over-the-top pyrotechnics and flashing LEDs, they flash a series of selfies they solicited from across Europe. The random faces emphasize the theme of their song and are a reminder of our shared humanity. We all face separation from loved ones inevitibly.
