After 11 attempts to represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest Claudia Faniello finally was given that ticket when she won the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2017 and with this the trip to Kyiv, Ukraine with the song "Breathlessly".

OGAE FanVision Song Contest 2019 - Interview with Eeva (Finland Pre-Selection 1964):
The funniest entry in the 2019 OGAE FanVision Song Contest definitely came from Eeva representing Finland. She selected a song from the Finnish National selection coming 4th in 1964  -
Pirkko Mannola - "Bzzz Bzzz Bzzz". Eeva made her own version of the song "Piss Piss Pss" and interpreted it very well on stage. During the soundcheck Radio International chatted with the singer which you can hear on this week's edition of Radio International and of course also hear the song. In case you missed the live transmission from Malta and could not listen to this song - enjoy it this week on Radio International.
