They’re turning the UK’s Eurovision pre-party into their own party. Malta’s The Busker are confirmed for the London Eurovision Party 2023.
On Sunday 16 April, the Maltese trio will perform “Dance (Our Own Party)” in London at the UK’s biggest and best Eurovision warm-up party. The Busker joins a star-studded lineup as they perform their track in front of 2000 eager Eurovision fans at the state of the art HERE at Outernet venue.
The Busker to perform at London Eurovision Party 2023
The Busker’s current line-up got together in 2020 in Malta. The band consists of Dav Jr on vocals and guitar, Sean Meachen on saxophone and Jean Paul Borg on drums. Dav, Sean and Jean will fly the Maltese flag in Liverpool after winning the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with 121 points, beating out runner-up Ryan Hili by a 36 point margin.
Their Eurovision song “Dance (Our Own Party)” is about escaping a large-scale event to break away with a group of friends for their own more intimate party, to escape the anxiety of crowds.

They did Malta dirty with that damn death slot. Well yeah their qualifications chances were already pretty slim, but now they’ve got virtually no chance. I just hope I won’t be this pessimistic on sf-1 night and maybe they might just scrape through. People remember to vote!(as if anyone’s gonna remember Malta when the big shots Sweden & Finland are there)
I’ll manifest for their qualification with the same voodos I did last year with Iceland.
can you do it for Switzerland as well! LOL
Currently, Latvia precedes my schedule, I’m really sorry. :’)
I love you! Both Malta and Latvia might need this, fingers crossed!
I think that the stigma of no 2 slot in Eurovision should end. They deserve to qualify
It’s not a stigma it’s a statistic…
Ever since the RO has been decided by the producers (since 2013), out of 18 entries that performed 2nd in the semi, the following qualified:
That’s 22% of qualifications. Not promissing, but not impossible to beat.
F’s in the chat for the death slotted Malta.
and no F’s for Armenia? double standard I call it.
This article is about Malta so I only mentioned Malta.
Malta was an NQ anyways the death slot just sealed it. I don’t think Armenia’s is Nq’ing. Well atm anyways
I don’t agree. They are both qualifiers for me. Vote for no 2 .
this isn’t about Armenia though
And for Armenia too.
