In the last decade Malta’s best placing was in 2013 at the Eurovision in Malmo where Gianluca and his entry Tomorrow achieved a 8th placing in the final, while the last time it qualified to the final was in 2016 with Ira Losco and Walk On Water. This year the country was represented by Christabelle and her song Taboo, which failed to qualify to the final finishing 13th in the second semi final.
