Tonight Malta’s Firelight will open the second semi-final with their song “Coming Home”. The song is all about the struggle of being far away from those you love most. Lead singer Richard knows all about that. He spent three years living in London, and it wasn’t easy for him to be away from his sunny island home. Wiwiblogger Deban caught up with Richard and Michelle recently at the London Eurovision Party. Richard sounds off on appearing on the UK X Factor and Michelle explains how her sister-in-law came up with the name Firelight. Are they sweet or what?
