Artists that came close to winning in the past and decided to try their luck again are Amber, Davinia Pace and Eleanor Cassar as well as artists that we’ve seen in the national final numerous times like Francesca Borg, Deborah C, Corazon, Pamela, Romina Mamo, Wayne William (Micallef), Dorothy Bezzina, Kaya and Anna Azzopardi.

The next step in the Maltese selection is Friday 29th November, where the 20 finalists will be announced on the local programme Xarabank.

The Maltese national selection will take place on Friday 7th February and Saturday 8th February where the 27th Maltese representative will be chosen.

Gianluca won the right to represent Malta with the song Tomorrow and achieved 8th place in the final.
