Malta has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 28 times since its debut in 1971. After a 16 year gap from 1975 to 1991, Malta returned to the Contest. Malta has been dubbed the most successful country not to have won the Contest. Despite never winning, they have finished second twice (Ira Losco in 2002 and Chiara in 2005), they twice finished third and have finished in the top 10 in 12 out of 15 contests from 1991-2005. More recently Malta have failed to qualify for the final on five out of nine occasions including their most recent attempt in 2015 with Amber’s ‘Warrior’. What will they have in store in 2016?
