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.
