Eurovision fans have been craving for Adele to compete at Eurovision for years, and at her recent Amsterdam concert the British superstar revealed she’s a fan of the show — with a soft spot for Malta’s entries.
During a break between songs, the “Hello” singer was chatting with her audience and asked one fan where they were from. After learning that the fan was from Malta, Adele kindly exclaimed, “You’ve come from Malta! You lot always do really good in the Eurovision, don’t you?”
Adele asked the audience if they’d also watched Eurovision 2016, and gave some praise for Jamala’s song “1944”, saying “Oh my God, I loved that winning song as well.”
News of Adele’s words of praise has been well received back on the islands, being covered by Malta’s major media outlets.
Malta Eurovision fans, including Adele, will now get to enjoy the melodies of Malta’s Eurovision songs this summer, as PBS and the Malta Community Chest Fund will stage the Malta Song in Concert on July 14. This one-off event will see all the Maltese Eurovision entrants come together on one stage at the historic Valletta Waterfront. That’s a summer delight indeed!
