Trivia

Malta's songwriting team for this year were also behind Chaira's debut in 1998.

Songwriter Jason Cassar gave Swedish Pop Idol Kevin Borg his first national appearance in Malta.

During the final, Daniel Diges representing Spain was disrupted by Catalan pitch invader Jaume Marquet Cot, also known as Jimmy Jump. The performance continued as Marquet, wearing a barretina, joined in with the carefully choreographed routine, but he ran off when security personnel appeared on the stage. Spain was subsequently allowed to perform their song a second time at the end of the show.

Germany was the odds on favourite to win this year's Eurovision Song Contest well ahead of the final.
