Eurovision 2012: This Is The Night Cracks the Swedish iTunes ChartWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
The Eurovision Song Contest has most recently been dubbed as the most popular non-sporting event in the world due to the fact that it is largely followed all over the mainland continent from which it has been titled meaning Europe as well as the United States of America and Australia who follow the competition with a lot of expectation. In the meantime though when it comes to Malta, the competition has to be one which manages to unite the people in the best possible way and this year should be quite special especially now that Kurt Calleja has made it to the finals of the competition with the song This Is The Night but whilst he has already overcome a hurdle, it seems that he has managed to garner another stone to his circle of success by charting in the regional iTunes store of Sweden.
The song that is representing Malta in this years' Eurovision Song Contest is actually written by Swedes and it seems that the people have recognized their traditional sounds in the track by virtue of going forth to by it through the digital medium of iTunes. During the night, the track has continued to rise and currently peaks in position #53 meaning just behind tracks like Waterline for Ireland (#51), Aphrodisiac for Greece (#50), Kuula for Estonia (#43), Nije Ljubav Stvar for Serbia (#42), Nar Jag Blundar for Finland (#28), Stay for Norway (#21), Loreen for Sweden (#5).
