Even though Lake Malawi’s latest single ‘Lucy’ did not win ‘Szansa na Sukces – Eurowizja 2020‘ and represent Poland at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest. The song has managed to at least win something, as the song is awarded the ‘Best Music Video’ award at the 2020 ‘Los Angeles Film Awards’.
Lake Malawi and ‘Lucy’
‘Lucy’ was written by Alasdair Bouch, Albert Černý (Czech Republic 2019), Cesár Sampson (Austria 2018), Joakim With Steen (Norway 2017), Lasse Piirainen (Finland 2017).
The award-winning music video was directed by Lake Malawi member ‘Antonin Hrabal‘, features a cardboard cut-out Lucie Ehrenbergerová from the podcast ‘A Cup of Style‘, as the ‘Lucy’ for the music video.
The story of the song revolves around one of the hosts of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest ‘Lucy Ayoub’. When she heard about Lake Malawi’s song, she showed her appreciation and support by doing a tribute to the song, which she has posted on her Instagram profile.
Lake Malawi at the Eurovision Song Contest
In 2019, Czech Republic selected Lake Malawi to represent them in Tel Aviv with their song ‘Friend of a Friend‘. During their participation at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, Lake Malawi managed to bring Czech Republic to the Grand Final for the second consecutive year. Overall, they managed to finish 11th with 157 Points (which is Czech Republic’s second best result to date).
We would like to congratulate Lake Malawi on their win at the Los Angeles Film Awards, and we look forward to hearing new material from them.
