Eurovision 2023: Malta’s Second Rehearsal!

Malta is here to continue the lineup. The busker are ready to own the stage with their dancing moves, as their party just began. The question here is only one:


Do you want to dance?


The Busker

The Busker is an indie pop band from Malta that was established in 2012. The band comprises of David “Dav.Jr” Meilak, Jean Paul Borg, and Sean Meachen, and their music style features elements of soul, pop, and funk. The band won the Lovin Music Award for the “Best Album of the Year” with their signature sound. They participated in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2023 with their song “Dance (Our Own Party)”, which deals with social anxiety and leaving a party to be with close friends. The Busker emerged victorious in the final after qualifying from the quarter-finals and semi-finals, granting them the opportunity to represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 in Liverpool.

The second rehearsal

While watching Malta’s performance in the arena on Sunday, we did not fully grasp the intricacy of their staging. However, on camera, it becomes apparent that their act is a lively and enjoyable one, and the band executes it perfectly. The performance combines retro funk and pop elements, with a remarkable saxophone hook. The Busker has brought along various props for staging, including a four-part set featuring a party house with a Destiny cardboard cutout, a yellow park bench and a lamppost, a red car, and a tiny room with a sofa.

The band members dance in between each part of the set, creating a clever visual narrative in three parts. Moreover, the act includes a costume change, as the band swaps their chunky sweaters for silver sequins during the final chorus.
