Can we ever do better at Eurovision?
I think Malta is doing its utmost in the Eurovision, both in the promotion and the song itself. Maybe we should take it less seriously, that’s all. Maybe we can try to choose participants who lean more towards Maltese tradition, such as Tribali, but if we end up in the same situation this would be of no use.
There should be more emphasis and investment in other international competitions. Eurovision is just a stepping stone. There are a number of other local and international concerts and competitions where singers can promote them-selves and show their talents.

I think it would be better to invest in other song contests in which Maltese participants have a real chance of making it into the final and winning.
Having said this, I think one of the reasons why Malta hasn’t won the Eurovision song contest is because of politics.
In fact, Maltese singers do quite well in other competitions.
Also, a different type of music genre should be tried in the Eurovision.
Ultimately, however, we are never going to win even if the song itself is splendid. Marthese Formosa, BA (Hons) International Relations with Philosophy.
Malta should continue taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest. We have managed to achieve respectable results.
This year we made it through the semi-final, which is an achievement in itself. In previous years, Malta made it to third place and twice to second place.
There’s no reason why Malta shouldn’t continue trying in the coming years.
Malta has the potential to invest in this festival while giving more importance to other international competitions as well. One need not necessarily exclude the other. Jonathan Pullicino, Diploma for Pharmacy Technicians, first year, Mcast Institute of Applied Science.
