A record crowd for the Isle of MTV Malta special 2012
will.i.am, Nelly Furtado, Flo Rida and Eva Simons woeing the crowd
The sixth edition of the Isle of MTV Malta Special 2012 gathered a record crowd at the Granaries in Floriana last night, estimated to be around 50,000 people. The crowd challenged the current heat wave and the traffic jams to attend the free concert organized by the Malta Tourism Authority. The headliners for this concert included Nelly Furtado, Will.i.am and Flo Rida (both had already performed at previous editions in Malta), and Eva Simons, a Dutch upcoming pop electronica singer who was the supporting act for the night.
The crowd started gathering in the early hours of the evening, waiting for the biggest event on Malta’s music calendar to start. Eva Simons started the party with her unique energetic music, including the great track ‘I don’t like you’. Later on, Canadian singer Nelly Furtado opened her set with a great performance of Maneater, leaving the crowd screaming and jumping, particularly during the hit ‘Jump’.
On the other hand, Flo Rida moved the crowd with the hits ‘In the Ayer and Low’, ‘Wild Ones’ and ‘Good Feeling’ and more. He was clearly thrilled to be in Malta as he took off into the crowd to hand out roses to the ladies and then to high five the crowd all across the square. The final act by will.i.am left the audience in awe with his dancers, circus performers, fireworks and an incredible DJ set that brought the best Isle of MTV Malta to a great end. We’re already waiting for the next edition, hurry up Summer 2013!
