Malta have recently announced their representative for Eurovision 2018 and after numerous attempts throughout the years to make it to the grand stage, Christabelle has finally done it and will represent Malta with her single, ‘Taboo’.
After competing to represent Malta from 2014 to 2016 with no win, critics saw her disappearance from 2017’s competition as a sign that she might have given up hope. Nevertheless, she has returned in 2018 with the fierce single that is ‘Taboo’ and will represent Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.
‘Taboo’ received 12 points from every jury vote during Malta’s Eurovision Representative Contest, wiping out the competition and making it clear that she is best choice for Malta this year. Will Christabelle receive more 12 points as the contest proceeds? We sure hope so!
After Malta failed to qualify with 2017’s entry, will they finally reach victory with this infectious pop single from Christabelle? The last time Malta were close to victory was in 2005 with Chiara and her entry, ‘Angel’.
Before we get too excited over this entry, to reach the Eurovision Grand Final, Christabelle will have to compete with Georgia’s Iriao, who is yet to announce her entry, along with countries of past winners like Sweden and Ukraine:
