Emma Muscat’s second rehearsal
Today we got to watch Emma’s’ second rehearsal from the online Press Centre. We got an in-depth preview of how her performance will look on TV on Thursday 12th May, when she performs in the second Eurovision semi-final. You can watch a small clip of their second rehearsal here!
What did we see from Malta’s second rehearsal?
Emma is taking inspiration from the Great Silver Dress Movement of 2021 in a mirrored mini that transforms her into an elegant disco ball. She leaps onto the piano to “take a stand,” singing her heart out, and is joined by four backing dancers to uplifting effect.

About Emma Muscat

In 2018, she participated in Italian TV show Amici di Maria De Filippi, and reached the grand final. Despite not winning, she achieved a deal with Warner Music Italia, and since then has collaborated with a number of major European artists including Shade and Junior Cally.

Malta’s Eurovision Journey
Malta made its Eurovision debut in 1971, with Joe Grech performing “Marija I-Maltija” (Maria the Maltese Lass), finishing 18th with 52 points. Malta did not participate in Eurovision from 1975 until 1991. That year they returned with the song “Could It Be” by Paul Giordimaina and Georgina, finishing 12th with 32 points.
Since then, Malta has been at every Eurovision and finished in the top 10 an impressive 12 times. Their best result so far is second place, which they’ve achieved twice. The first time was in 2002, when Ira Losco sang “7th Wonder,” and the second time in 2005 with Chiara’s “Angel.” Malta’s most recent Eurovision entry was 2015 Junior Eurovision winner Destiny, who scored 255 points and finished 7th with the song “Je me casse.”
