This week has been a busy time for Junior Eurovision lovers, with a number of countries releasing their entries back to back – and now Malta has joined the party by releasing the music video and revamped version of Gaia Gambuzza’s “Diamonds in the Skies”.
The newly revamped version fixed some balancing issues between the original track’s instrumental and bass lines, added more cohesive introduction, and softened the backing vocals that overpowered Gaia during the live national selection. The music video comes in at about 3:35 minutes, so it is likely that this version is an extended cut of Gaia’s JESC entry.
The song was written by Red-Electrick’s front-man Matthew James Borg, while the music video was directed by Junior Eurovision 2014-2018 Director Gordon Bonello.
Gaia will compete for Malta on December 11th at the Karen Demirchyan and Concerts Complex in Yerevan, and will share the stage with 16 other countries. Malta has competed in 18 editions of Junior Eurovision, missing out on the 2011 and 2012 and has won the contest twice – in 2013 with Gaia Cauchi’s song “The Start” and in 2016 with Destiny Chukunyere’s song “Not My Soul”.
