Malta’s Amber may not have made the grand final of Eurovision 2015, but our memories of her sunny disposition and powerful vocals live on. When our William caught up with Amber on the red carpet ahead of the semi finals, she really stood out from the crowd: She looked like a delicious gumdrop and was the only female artist sporting this colour.
Amber told wiwibloggs that she felt positive wearing green and that she wanted to share this positivity with everyone there. The short cocktail dress was a bold choice, but it suited the warrior within her.
If you like Amber’s look, make sure to vote for her in our Red Carpet poll.
Speaking of “Warrior” and confidence, Amber told us that the months between her winning the Maltese national selection and the Eurovision Song Contest allowed her to perfect her show. And we love it!
Happy birthday, dear Amber!

This sounds like Russian people organized themselves and every day after work go and hunt for LGBT people to kill them, with the government support. That is not true. If you have evidence for organized murders of gay people by the Russian government, you’re welcome to prove it here. Do you actually believe that Russian LGBT people think “oh, look, they’re booing at Polina and making her cry. That must be because they support us”?
@Vladimir: The same thing DOES happen in Russia. Except instead of some rich woman crying, its thousands of lgbt people getting murdered or horribly tortured. Yeah Polina is a great person that supports LGBT people, but this site has a real problem of comparing the two situations as equally unfair. You wanna know whats unfair? Being murdered for being gay and having people support your murderers. So how anyone can say booing Russia in a tv show is comparible to lgbt being murdered in Russia is beyond me.
It’s Amber’s birthday today 🙂
Amber deserved to qualify at least to the final…What a shame she finished 12th in televoting…Because she finished 5th in the juries…Overall she came just 11th missing the qualification just 4 one spot unfortunately.. She had my 5th most favorite song overall & she was my big winner on the 2nd SF… If she even had used her initial strong powerful version of her *Warrior* she would be my #1 favorite sopng among the 40.. <3 She had the best song in whole Vienna's Vision contest when she had won the maltese NF grand prix back in November of 2014…… Read more »
Yeah I agree. Eurovision is a ‘platform of tolerance’ and russophobic behaviour goes against everything the song contest is for. It was totally unfair.
Now for the main article, its a shame she didn’t qualify. Her staging was Conchita 2.0 and it broke her. She had one of my favourite songs.
I apologize for being off-topic, but since I don’t see a recent article where this would be appropriate, so I’ll ask here: will Wiwibloggs write an article about the shameful behavior of audience during Polina Gagarina’s performance and voting? They actually made her cry. It’s interesting that no one is mentioning that, while if something similar had happened in Russia, western media wouldn’t stop talking about it and probably claim that it was Putin’s fault.
If anyone cares, I’m not Russian. I just hate people being treated unfairly.
