There are several familiar names in the line up, that have competed before, but also some new singers. It is the first time since 2010 that the participating songs have been known before the national final. At the junior contest, Malta has quite a proud record since first competing in 2003. They have won on two occasions back with Gaia Cauchi in 2013, and in 2015 with Destinty Chukunyere. Last year Gianluca Cilia had the honour of representing his country, coming a respectable 9th.
