We’ve contacted our sources on the sunny island and have learned that Alexander—the “Fairytale” singer who won Eurovision 2009—was here to collaborate with Franklin Calleja, one of Malta’s rising stars. As you’ll recall, he has participated in the Maltese national final for the past two years.
Franklin rose to fame after winning the local singing contest “Don’t Stop Me Now” in 2012. After his win, he became a household name by performing regularly on one of Malta’s most-watched TV programmes, which eventually lead to the Malta Eurovision Song Contest finals.
From what we can gather, Franklin and Alexander had quite a busy weekend in the studio. Franklin tells us that Alexander is a “very humble and professional artist in every way”. Are they working on a national final song? Well, we don’t know yet. What we do know is that everyone in Malta seems to be pulling out all the stops for Eurovision 2015 in Vienna.
