The Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2016 is approaching fast, so we just had to squeeze in a few interviews with the contestants before the ball drops. We recently caught up with 16-year old Maxine Pace, who is turning heads and winning fans with her song “Young Love”. Get ready to fall in love yourself…
Maxine is a fresh face at MESC, but she’s already well-known on the island, as she has appeared on several nationally broadcast TV shows. “It all started in a very young age,” she says of her love of music. “I started singing in front of the mirror, my mum used to see me and then I took singing lessons and now here I am taking part in the Malta Eurovision.”

Does she think she’ll qualify for the final and make a run for the win?
“I don’t know to be honest how my chances are as there are so many amazing talents participating but I truly believe in my song!”
She’s definitely enthused to compete against Eurovision veteran Ira Losco: “It’s an honour to be on the same stage as Ira since I’ve seen her on TV since I was a little girl. There was also a short period where she used to teach me when I was nine, so I’m really excited about it!”
