The Mediterranean nation participated until 2010, where it took a break and returned in 2013 with Gaia Cauchi and “The Start”, which was their first win in the competition. It wasn’t long until they achieved their second win in 2015, where Destiny Chukunyere won with her song “Not My Soul”. Destiny went on to represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2021 with “Je Me Casse”, where she placed seventh.

Malta’s most recent participation was in 2022, where they were represented by Gaia Gambuzza performing “Diamonds in the skies”. In Yerevan she scored a total 43 points, finishing 16th.
