Malta could stun all at the Eurovision

Malta’s Eurovision history is a long and colourful one, and there’s no denying there have been plenty of ups and downs over the years. Yet things are looking up as 2019 is shaping up to be the year Malta returns to the contest’s grand final for the first time in three years.

In between 1991 and 1998 Malta earned eight consecutive top ten places, including third places in 1992 and 1998, and runners-up spots in 2002 and 2005. However, Malta’s recent contenders failed to qualify for the final in three of the last four editions. This year Michela will be hoping to break that streak and shine at the final.

Out of the 23 times Malta has been placed first by another Eurovision country, most times can be attributed to Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina. Malta has received more ‘maximum points’ votes from Croatia than any other country.

X Factor Malta winner Michela will be competing with her chart-friendly song Chameleon, which is arguably one of the best songs Malta has had in recent years. The song sits just outside the top 6 with bookmaker Yobetit and could continue to climb up the rankings before the final. Whether Michela’s entry will stun the audience into twelve-pointing her all the way to the top remains, of course, to be seen but the winning possibility is not too far-reaching.

Malta has a history of punching above its weight in the Eurovision, and Michela certainly can’t be written off. With a powerful voice, catchy song, and strong choreography it will be no surprise if Malta turns out to be a strong contender on May 18. But first, Michela will go on to the second set of semi-finals on May 16.
