Malta, we have missed you. After a three-year absence, the Malta Eurovision Song Contest is back, where 22 acts to compete to represent Malta at Eurovision 2022. And with it comes the iconic lyric videos.
We’ve taken a look through and found our favourite lines from the class of ’22. Ahead of the national final beginning on 17 February, we celebrate some of the most memorable lyrics from Malta.
1. Denise – “Martini vibes at the party”
Just to be clear, there are no actual martinis at the party, just martini vibes. If you want a drink, we have Sprite.
2. Richard Edwards – “It’s ok if your a little strange”
Sure, some people might consider writing “your” instead of “you’re” to be a little strange. But like, who’s to say what is “correct spelling”? If people think that’s strange, like, that’s on them. Be true to you’reself.
3. Jessica Grech – “To get to you I’d learn to fly a plane”
We’re curious. Just what is the scenario where Jess would spend a year learning to fly and get a pilot’s licence just to visit her boo? Even if her crush doesn’t live somewhere served by commercial air routes, surely it would be a lot easier and cheaper for Jess to just charter a private flight? Or… is she on some sort of no-fly list?
4. Sarah Bonnici – “I will do you”
Ok, ma’am, we appreciate your enthusiasm but we feel like you should focus on your national final performance. Then we can talk.
5. Giada – “Is this our destiny?”
Back in May, Maltese viewers expressed shock as the grand final televote results came in.
6. Matt Blxck – “It’s 60 degrees”
For decades, the hottest recorded air temperature was measured in El Azizia, Libya in 1922, maxing out at 58ºC. But that record has just been smashed! Malta is now the hottest place on earth, with Matt Blxck’s bedroom climbing to 60ºC. Someone open a window!
7. Sarah Bonnici – “You put me up to 100 degrees”
Breaking news! There is a new contender for the hottest place on earth, also in Malta. Sara Bonnici claims to have felt temperatures of a whopping 100 degrees. Her tea is boiling, her chocolate is melting, her eggs are frying. Matt Blxck has been approached for comment.
8. Enya Magri – “Spiritual fires blazing ye”
Kanye West recently legally changed his name to Ye, but it’s taking a while for people to get used to it. Enya has proven herself an early adopter, paying tribute to the artistic genius.
9. Matt Blxck – “M-A-T-T B-L-X-C-K”
If you heard someone say “IT’S MATT BLACK, HA HA HAAAA!”, I bet you’d think he spells his name “Matt Black”. Well, you would be WRONG and BORING. It’s actually with an X, which signifies the unknown and/or that user name was available on social media.
