The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) has revealed that the reason why Maltese singer AIDAN was disqualified from the Malta Eurovision Song contest was due to the breaching of articles 5.3 and 5.6 of the festival’s rules.

Regulation article 5.6 takes marketing material and promotion into consideration and regards them as strictly prohibited. It reads as follows:

“The engagement of marketing personnel, marketing officials, marketing companies or the engagement into some sort of marketing or promotional campaign or activity by the artists to promote themselves, the song, their participation, or in some way to influence the public vote is strictly prohibited. The publication of any social media post, promotion material, interviews or media presence/exposure from the announcement of the quarter finalist’s onwards is also strictly prohibited. Any breach of this clause will lead to automatic disqualification.”

Meanwhile, Article 5.3 reads:

“By participating in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2023, each applicant is accepting to be bound by these terms and conditions regulating this participation. All applicants undertake to follow all the contest’s regulations and PBS directives. Any breach of these regulations may result in immediate disqualification.”

The 25-year-old took to Instagram, writing ‘BEAUTY AND THE BEAST’, explaining how she loved wearing the faux creation constructed by using manmade materials. “Beautiful beautiful”. 

Despite the lion’s head being fake, not everyone was all too keen about the fashion choice. Many took to the comets saying that animals ‘are not a fashion statement.’ 

‘What is the point, it doesn’t look good and it promotes animal cruelty’ said one commenter. Another said: ‘Even though it’s not real it’s still disturbing and in bad taste.’ 

One other commenter said: ‘This is highly inappropriate, prop or not this should never have been designed.’ Some did attempt to defend the fashion choice, pointing to the fact that this was faux.
