Choosing her song for Eurovision 2016 was a truly extended affair.

But for Malta’s Ira Losco, it all paid off on Sunday when she wowed the audience at the Russian Eurovision Pre-Party in Moscow with her song “Walk on Water.”

Ahead of the concert Russian wiwiblogger Dayana caught up with the Mediterranean diva, who is making a triumphant return to Eurovision fourteen years after her second place finish at Eurovision 2002 in Tallinn.

Interview: Ira Losco at the Russian Eurovision Pre-Party:

When we met up with the 34-year-old stunner, she hadn’t yet seen Moscow: her flight only landed a few hours earlier at 06:30 local time.

But she still managed to put on a light dusting of blush to help her natural beauty shine.

“I remember back in 2002 it was easy,” she says. “You just came here and you were part of the line-up in the concert. I think the difficult part was if you had to sing first. There was just that part, ‘What number am I going to sing?'”

She also expressed her admiration for Molly Pettersson Hammer, who wrote the song alongside a bunch of talented songwriters.

“She’s a brilliant singer, a brilliant writer too….I was very proud to have Molly as one of the co-writers.”

“I am definitely sure that we are going to see her representing her country another time at the Eurovision Song Contest. I have faith in her.”

Two favourites, one red carpet

She may feel like she can walk on water, but she can also walk on a red carpet!

Ira wore a beautiful black blouse with skin-tight trousers with decorative cut-outs, and elongated her perfect legs in a pair of sky-high platforms heels.

Apparently she forgot how cold Moscow is compared to sunny Malta and was feeling the chill.

Thankfully, fellow Eurovision favourite Sergey Lazarev noticed she was freezing and handed her his coat!

So, what do you think of Ira’s appearance at Moscow? Do you think it will boost her chances next May? Let us know in the comments section below!

@Yurii, i can easily agree with most parts of your opinion, but last year’s winner Mans i didn’t like his song, it did not wow me

@Light Star, well i am gonna cheer the best i can for her and for Samra from Azerbaijan ( also a very good singer and good looking as well)

and you know what Russia’s song is growing on me 🙂

Hottest singer this year….ooofff

She’s the woman’s Lazarev this year. Great musical production, charismatic singer, nice voice, but the song lacks the “hook” last winners had. Less is more.

@John Doe

thank you, and i appreciate that

i want more respect to all artists competing for their countries this year 🙂 🙂

the act i didn’t like who came back was Dana International with that annoying song Ding Dong, and Dana didn’t even show up at some of the pre party’s, that was a arrogant diva, for my opinion and i was so happy she didn’t qualify to the final, in 2011 i believe 🙂

Pre-party in Moscow was just awesome. And that’s a shame there’s practically no information about it on wiwibloggs!
