Gianluca Cilia was chosen this weekend to be Malta’s representative at this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest which will be held in Tbilisi, Georgia on 26th November.
The nine-year-old boy sang an impressive cover of Perdere l’amore, an Italian ballad by Massimo Ranieri. His performance won him the support of televoters. The song Cilia will sing in November will be chosen later this year.
Malta has performed extraordinarily well at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, winning in 2013 with Gaia Cauchi and again in 2015 with Destiny Chukunyere.

Veronica Rotin, another young singer with an incredible voice, placed 2nd during Saturday’s live final. She had gained fame some years back for her participation in the Italian TV show Io Canto.
