Malta have had good success at Eurovision since debuting in 1971. They’ve managed to finish in 2nd place twice, most recently in 2005 with Chiara and her song “Angel“. Last year, Malta failed to qualify for the final, with Emma Muscat and her song “I Am What I Am” finishing in 16th place in semi final 2.
