Eurovision Contestants 2015: Malta

Malta is one of the few Eurovision participants that have not missed a single contest since 1991. But despite such dedication, the country has always preferred finishing in the top 10 without winning — probably a way to make the most of the glory without the burden of organizing the party the following year. Classic.

Malta will be represented this year by Amber, a 23-year-old singer from the Mediterranean island. She has also proved to be extremely perseverant when it comes to Eurovision: She’s tried every year since 2011 to represent her country at the contest, winning this year for the first time, although she was also a background singer in 2012.

Amber will perform “Warrior”, a song about “overcoming difficulties by finding an inner strength,” she explains. In the video, she sings in an empty house while people in dark hoodies play musical instruments around her.

Our vote:

Does it make you want to visit that country? 4/10

Was there enough glitter? 4/10

Ok to quit your day job? 1.25/10
