Malta 2011: Glen goes pop

Malta has selected an unusually modern and upbeat song compared to what they usually send in. (Remember the dancing seagull of last year...)

Glen Vella - One Life (Malta 2011)

Glen Vella is an adorable little pop singer who is very enthusiastic and sings well. He should also be very happy about not being drawn in the same semi final as Ireland, as he could easily be taken for a washed-out one-man-version of Jedward with better hair.

The whole package is pleasant and appealing, but also a bit too nice for its own good. People never vote for nice, and this is nice more than anything else.

"One Life" is composed by Paul Giordimaina, who represented Malta at their grand comeback after 16 years of absence in Rome 1991. Will his song better his sixth place from then?`
