Kurt Calleja, Malta's representative at the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest is looking to further his career according to a recent twitter post aimed directly at Simon Cowell, the individual behind the lucrative talent show, The X Factor. Following his victory at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with the track This Is The Night co-written with Johan Jämtberg and Mikael Gunnerås, he represented the nation in Baku, Azerbaijan where he obtained forty-one points in a twenty-first placed finish.

Upon his return from the Eurovision Song Contest, Kurt Calleja found solace on 89.7 Bay, Malta's leading radio station with the release of the single Boomerang which saw him nominated as best soloist at the Bay Music Awards whilst also giving him maximum airplay. The first single off the debut album, Love On Mars proved to be the beginning of something special or so one thought noting that his follow-up tracks have not managed to garner as much attention. On a positive note though, the album was launched with a major concert in aid of the Inspire Foundation with special guest acts including former Eurovision Song Contest representatives; Chiara and Gianluca as well as multiple national final participant, Amber, Malta Music Awards Best Solo Artist winner, Brooke and current charting sensation, Maxine Pace.
