Right after the Meet&Greet press conference with all the participants of 2019 Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Gliwice, Poland, we have spoken to Malta’s Eliana Gomez Blanco on her thoughts about the Maltese language and the possibility of her future comeback to the adult Eurovision.
PFE: Hello, Eliana! It’s nice to see you here in Gliwice. I’d like to ask you first about the Maltese language, because it is not really popular in Eurovision. Was it hard to do a Junior Eurovision entry in Maltese?
Eliana: Of course it’s my language, so for me it’s easy to speak it, but for other countries it’s maybe not that common than for the Maltese. I think it was a very interesting element and people took it really well and they loved the Maltese language, so I’m very glad for that and I’m very happy to come here from Malta and hand this beautiful language.
PFE: Who would you like to represent Malta in the adult Eurovision? Maybe you would want to do it?
Eliana: Yes, it has always been my dream to sing at Junior Eurovision and Eurovision. To be here is already incredible! And if I had an opportunity to represent Malta in the adult Eurovision, it would be amazing. It would be another dream come true!
PFE: Thank you very much and good luck!
Eliana: Thank you too!
