Several familiar faces return to the finals including Claudia Faniello, Richard Edwards, Amber and Dorothy Bezzina. Also returning are rising and popular stars - Domenique Azzopardi, Danica Muscat, Jessica Muscat and Raquela. Kevin Borg returns and is an early favourite because of his previous participation at the Malta Eurosong in 2006 and also that he won Swedish Pop Idol and now is living in Sweden.
Keep an eye out also for Ylenia Vella. She is in the finals for the first time but was actually on the stage with Kurt Calleja when he won the 2012 Malta Eurosong. But Ylenia did not make the trip to Baku.
