      Michela welcome back. Thank you for putting such a great show! and for putting Malta once again on the map of Europe. I hope that you will go to Australia and to Canada and give some joy to the Many Maltese over there. They are always eager to see new Maltese talent. Go and urge them that next year they should all vote for the Maltese song because voting will be eligible from Australia and Canada and any foreign country. We cannot vote for our Country from Malta. The 356 is barred as are all the prefixes of all the other countries for their country. Our hope is in foreigners and Maltese living overseas because we do not have friends of friends of friends. .
      Michela you did not in fact come in the 16th place because many of the countries that pushed you back to the 16th place were friends of friends of friends as they admitted themselves. This happens each year. There is a group of neighbouring countries who seem to have a prior agreement to vote for each other. As we heard yesterday friends of friends of friends. Other years we have heard, for our neighbours, our cousins, etc etc. If they would have voted for the song, the result would have been much different.
      Once more. Thank you, you are great
