More Malta
2013 saw a well deserved top 10 placing for Malta with Tomorrow by Gianluca Bezzina (8th in Malmö).
Kurt Calleja also made it to the final and finish 21st. Glen Vella (2011) and Thea Garett didn't make it.
In 2009 Chiara tried for the third time, but after her successful entries The One That I Love (3rd in 1998) and Angel (2nd in 2005) a 22nd place in the final was a bit disappointing.
