🇲🇹 Malta

Song: “Stronger”

Performer: Yulan

Another nation that’s among one of the most loyal to Junior Eurovision is little Malta. It was there at the start in 2003 and has only missed two Contests. They’ve even won twice.  In recent years, Malta has delivered songs with very positive messages. This song is no exception. It has an empowering message but Yulan delivers with amazing vocals. Not only are her vocals strong but they’re also soulful. This ballad does have a soulful feeling to it. I like it.

JESC Chances: Interesting how this year, there seems to be more ballads than upbeat songs. Ballads can still win at Junior Eurovision, but they face a challenge with the online voters who normally give higher votes to more upbeat songs. Also Yulan may be very talented and professional, but I have seen some songs finish not so well in the past because they were ‘too mature’ for Junior Eurovision. This is one of the most mature entries this year, but it’s possible it could be too mature for the JESC crowds to buy it up. One thing’s for sure about this song. I’m very confident it won’t be a second year of Malta finishing last.

Lyrics Yulan “Stronger”

[Verse]
Patience

You think you cannot cope another day
But all you need is patience
You promised me you wouldn’t fade away
Wanting to escape, can’t see that you’re amazing

Look at your reflection
All you wanna do is change it
Have patience
Don’t let it get you down, it’s just a phase

[Pre]
Know: you’re so much more than you know
I know we may have a long way to go
But I see the glow in you

[Chorus]
Look at us now
Stronger than ever before
We fought all the battles
Jumped all the hurdles
Nothing can stop us
Take a look at us now

[Verse]
Saviour
To mend a broken heart along the way
You thought you’d need a saviour
But you’re the only one to make a change
And as we’re getting older
We think that we’ll be bolder
But here we are still waiting to be saved

[Pre]
Still have a long way to go
But I see the glow in you

[Chorus]
Look at us now
Stronger than ever before,
We fought all the battles
Jumped all the hurdles
Nothing can stop us

[Bridge]
When a storm is awaiting
Just try to be patient
I promise we’ll make it somehow

[Chorus]
Look at us now
Stronger than ever before
Look at us now
Look at us, look at us
take a look at us, look at us now
Oooooh take a
Look at us now
