Prior to the announcement of the results, Claudia Faniello, who represented Malta at Eurovision in 2017, performed a variety of her songs. The singer finally got the chance to represent her country in the Eurovision Song Contest after participating in the national selection for several years.

Richard & Joe Micallef finished second in the public vote with Song For Dad. Joe represented Malta in Eurovision in 2014 as part of the group Firelight with Coming Home.
