The Maltese entry for the next edition of the Eurovision Song Contest may change before the big event on 14 May. 

Ira Losco won the Malta Eurovision Song Contest over the weekend with a song entitled 'Chameleon'. However the rules allow the song to be altered or replaced entirely before it is performed in the final competition.

Earlier today, a draw held at Stockholm's City Hall determined which countries would perform in either of the two semi-final events. Losco will perform during the second half of the first semi-final, on 10 May. The second semi-final will take place on 12 May.

The running order of the performances is yet to be decided.

37 countries will compete in the semi-finals - 18 in the first and 19 in the second. Ten countries will be selected from the two groups to participate in the final on 14 May.

Losco said that there was a possibility that the song that won her the opportunity to represent Malta - 'Chameleon' - may undergo changes before she performs it at the big event in May. There's also the possibility that another song altogether is chosen, a decision taken by PBS, who coordinates Malta's entry. 

Prime minister Joseph Muscat received Losco at Castille, congratulating her on her win.
