Kevin Borg was a resident singer on a local television programme and had even tried to represent Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest on two occasions, the first time with the track You're My Dream in 2006 and the second time with the song Whenever in 2007, both composed by Jason Paul Cassar and penned by Sunny Aquilina but tele-voting put him in eight and fourth place respectively. Following his final participation in the local competition, he traveled with his girlfriend to Sweden where she convinced him to audition for Idol, the Swedish version of the notable reality television series in which a number of performers would ultimately compete to win a contract with Sony Music whilst getting weekly exposure on national television, in this case being TV4. Ultimately, Kevin ended up being the winner of the edition and went onto release his debut single With Every Bit Of Me and album The Beginning, both of which charted in the top three. A couple of years onwards and Kevin is working with a host of songwriters and producers on his sophomore release.

There has been a lot of talk in Malta in recent months that due to the fact that the competition is being staged in Sweden, it might be best to have someone who knows the country well and would be willing to represent Malta having already given it a shot in the past. Nevertheless, it might not be the right position to put him in a national selection with the possibility of an internal selection being looked at not by the broadcaster but by the people who have been against that type of decision in the past. It is quite interesting to note though that Kevin Borg is currently working with a large number of people in terms of music including none other than Sharon Vaughn who was the co-writer of Waterline for Jedward, the song which represented Ireland in this years' Eurovision Song Contest and also Dimitri Stassos who co-wrote this years' entry for Greece entitled Aphrodisiac as well as the Spanish entry in 2009 entitled La Noche Es Para Mi.
