The Malta Eurovision Song Contest has truly become a spectacle for people of all ages to enjoy because the genres represented during these past two evenings have managed to attract the attention of many. The semi-final left a lot to be desired in terms of transmission quality but one could definitely note the improvements that took place during these past couple of hours. All of the sixteen (16) acts were treated equally, with rehearsals taking place this morning to iron out the respective issues that might have arose. Nevertheless, following an enchanting evening hosted by Elaine Saliba and Gordon Bonello, the winner was evident with Gianluca Bezzina and his entry Tomorrow co-written between Dean Muscat and Boris Cezek.

Gianluca Bezzina is the lead singer of the band Funk Initiative which has garnered a lot of positive acclaim in recent months, releasing successful singles Paris and The Liberators which both managed to make it to the top ten on 89.7 Bay. He is also the brother of Dorothy Bezzina who was also competing during the evening with another track entitled Starting from the End composed by Magnus Kaxe and penned by Gerard James Borg. Gianluca Bezzina never entered the Malta Eurovision Song Contest before and managed to conquer with his debut, which is an impressive feat and similar to what Thea Garrett had achieved back in 2010 with her entry My Dream.
