Eurovision 2015: Malta: Domenique: Take Me As I Am

Domenique Azzopardi is no stranger to participating in the national semi-finals of Eurovision Malta.

As far back as 2004, she took part in the preliminary round for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest and finished in seventh place with the song Talk to Me. She has since appeared several times in the junior event, but progressed to the official semi-final in 2011 singing a composition by Eurovision stalwart Ralph Siegel called I'll Follow the Sunshine.

She returned in 2013 with Too Little Too Late, qualified for the final, but ultimately found herself at the bottom of the scoreboard.

Now she's back, hoping to erase the disappointment of that result with the song Take Me As I Am. Written by Sara Biglert, Christian Schneider, Madeleine Jangklev and Aidan O’Connor, it's a mid-paced ballad which builds into a memorable rock-inspired dance chorus.

As with all of the semi-finalists, it's difficult to judge how Domenique's vocal skills and performance will sound and look live on the night. If her voice is as impressive and impassioned as it sounds in the video (below), she should have no problem cruising through to the final.

She appears to be a natural performer and a pretty girl is always a positive benefit for the composers when taking on the opinions of both the judges and the public alike.

Not Malta's song choice for next year, in my opinion, but what do you think of Take Me As I Am?

Domenique performs in 11th position out of 20 competitors in the semi-final on 21 November.
