Michela Pace said she is “so, so proud to be Maltese” in her first reaction to her dramatic qualification for the Eurovision final.
“I’m speechless right now,” she said. “I’m so so happy, so excited and I’m looking forward to the final. I’m so so proud to be Maltese.”
Michela, 18, qualified to Saturday’s final in nail-biting fashion, with the Eurovision presenters leaving Malta for last when announcing the ten countries which had qualified.
It will be Malta’s first outing in the Eurovision final since 2016, when Ira Losco finished in 12th place.
