Loreen, this year's Eurovision winner was all smiles when she landed in Malta from Frankfurt on Tuesday afternoon. She will perform to the Maltese public on July 25. This petite singer with the strong and subtle voice caught all the media attention at the airport who welcomed her to our island. Last May, she mesmerised all Europe  with her winning song 'Euphoria' at the Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, Azerbaijan.

The  Swedish star gave a press conference at MIA and said she was thrilled to be in Malta. She will be having a 30-40 minute performance in a show to take place at the Malta Fairs and Convention Centre (MFCC), Ta’ Qali at 20.00h.

This is Loreen’s second visit to Malta as her winning entry Euphoria is highly popular on the island. The event will be hosted by Nathan D.

Stand Out Events are also including other popular local live acts and top dance artists. Tenisha, Kurt Calleja, DJ Ruby, Brooke and the debut band MsLeads will also appear in the same show as well.

Stand Out Director Antonella Vassallo spoke enthusiastically about the event and said that this is going to be a concert full of Maltese talent. She said she is honoured that a Eurovision song contest winner is visiting Malta for the first time at the peak of the singer's success.

Loreen will perform live six songs from her repetoire. Raised in the countryside outside Stockholm in a family of Moroccan-Berber origin, Loreen's musical influences include Bjork and the Australian musician Lisa Gerrard. She is currently working on a full album project.

The Swedish star enjoyed international success following her victory with her song 'Euphoria' in Baku, Azerbaijan. 'Euphoria' topped many European charts and reached number 3 on the UK official singles chart.

DJ Ruby and Tenisha will draw crowds with their dance music before and after her performance. The budding 3 member band MsLeads, the Maltese Eurovision song contest winner Kurt Calleja and his band and the Brooke, a Maltese singer currently living for the past three years in London will entertain live the audience.
