All the way from Malta, the saxophone-wielding trio The Busker have arrived in Liverpool for Eurovision 2023. The “Dance (Our Own Party)” singers sat down with us in the LUSH Liverpool Lounge to chat all things Eurovision.
From featuring in the legendary soap opera “Neighbours” to their chances of qualification at Eurovision, Dav Jr, Jean Paul and Sean spilled all the tea with our William. Check out their interview below!
Malta’s The Busker “Dance (Our Own Party)” — Interview after Eurovision 2023 first rehearsal
Dav Jr, Jean Paul and Sean were feeling confident after first rehearsals. They were mostly satisfied with their second run through, although they did find some flaws on the third one which they were sure to correct for the second rehearsal.
The Maltese band are ready to beat the odds and advance to the final: “We want to beat the narrative of the death slot”. Performing a number 2, they’ll have to dance through the running order to get to the finale.
Malta has mostly kept their national final’s performance idea, but have elevated it with several additions. Also, the guys’ shiny sweaters are now shinier! And on another note, did you know their stage director is the same as Brooke Borg’s? Checkmate!
Malta: The Busker at Eurovision 2023 (First rehearsal)
Malta’s The Busker took to the stage for the first time on Sunday, and then again on Wednesday. The band have shipped many furniture, a car, and even some cardboard prints with former Eurovision representatives on them.
The likes of Destiny, Ira Losco and Claudia Faniello “join the party” with their party hats in their Eurovision costumes. Then The Busker take to the car which drives them to “Sweaterland”. If only that could be one of the countries which voted this year!
At the very end, the guys take off their sweaters and show some new ones, although this time they’re all shiny in silver and black.
