It has definitely been a week to remember for Ira Losco, Malta’s representative at the 2002 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, having been appointed as co-host of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest alongside Gianluca Bezzina and Moira Delia, and thus given the opportunity to perform a multitude of tracks as a guest performer including; What I’d Give, Me Luv U Long Time, L-Aħħar Bidwi F’Wied il-Għasel, Let Her Go and Fever.

Last night though, will definitely have been the cherry on the cake with Ira swooping three (3) major accolades during the Malta Music Awards; Best Solo Artist, Best Music Video, Best Album, and ultimately missing out on Best Song, that going to ‘The Runaway’ by Red Electrick.
