Tomorrow, co-written by Dean Muscat and Boris Cezek with vocals provided by Gianluca managed to win the Malta Eurovision Song Contest back in February. Since then, Gianluca embarked on a promotional tour across Europe where he visited several nations including Hungary, Romania, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and Armenia amongst others. In each of the rehearsals, Gianluca was seen to be a dark horse for victory noting that the foreign press described him as having one of the best personalities in this years' competition. A simple tune with a positive message is everything that Malta could have hoped for, ultimately leading to an extremely positive result which saw the nation getting points from most of the participating countries.

 

San Marino and Italy were amongst the beginning to vote and as a matter of fact, they both awarded Malta a total of ten points which were then followed by Norway later on during the evening. Tomorrow did not gather any points from Sweden, Albania, Austria, Israel, Serbia, Finland, Bulgaria, Belgium, Russia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Croatia and Switzerland respectively. In the semi-final stage of the competition, Malta did even better noticeably finishing in fourth place achieving top marks from three countries, including FYR Macedonia, Norway and Azerbaijan. Despite the fourth place finish, it was only a mere three points away from being the first runner-up. Gianluca along with his team consisting of Louise Ann Bugeja Tate, Samaria Bezzina, Gabriel Cassar, Kenny D'Ugo, Christopher Tate, Dean Muscat and Boris Cezek deserve a round of applause but the Maltese Delegation led by Anton Attard and incorporating Peter Carbonaro, Daniel D'Anastasi and Joseph Mizzi also deserve salutations for their hard work.

Since Anton Attard took over back in 2011, the results have been improving every year as Malta manages to reach their best position since the runner-up finish achieved by Angel performed by Chiara back in 2005. Sweden is becoming a hub for success when it comes to the Maltese Participation noting that back in 1992, Mary Spiteri managed third place with her entry Little Child whilst in 2000, Claudette Pace finished in eight place with Desire. Gianluca has also managed an eighth place finish with his entry Tomorrow. We would like you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news about the Eurovision Song Contest as the Public Broadcasting Services unofficially confirms a return to the competition as this is Malta's thirteenth top ten result.
