Key points about this news item Malta Eurovision entry fails to qualify

Malta failed to make the Eurovision final on Saturday


Malta misses out in Eurovision

Sadly last night, Claudia Faniello, Malta’s entry for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, was knocked out during the semi-final stage held in Kiev.


Ten songs were chosen on the night to progress to Saturday’s final;

  • Austria
  • Belarus
  • Bulgaria
  • Croatia
  • Denmark
  • Hungary
  • Israel
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Romania


Claudia’s song Breathlessly was number four in the running order on the night but failed to impress the judges sufficiently to qualify for Saturday’s final. Also knocked out was Ireland, who have a strong record of seven wins in the competition, but over the past ten years have failed to qualify on six occasions.



Our commiserations to Claudia and the Malta Eurovision team, so now to start looking forward to next year and perhaps take a good look at the types of songs that are qualifying and winning. It would seem that the style of winning song has changed since the number of participating countries has grown.
