Ira Losco is now judge for the second season of the X-Facor in Malta. Together with her three colleagues judges that Michela Pace is the best act to send to Tel Viv representing Malta at Eurovision 2019 with the song "Chameleon" which came 14th. JP chatted with Ira a bit about her career and of course her current role as judge in Malta's X-Factor. Enjoy the interview on the show this week.
