Despite her amazing vocal performance, Amber’s entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 did not make it through to the finals. 
Following an appropriately empowering rendition of her song, hopes were high for a shot at the top spot this weekend, however Malta's Eurovision hopes have sadly been cut short after failing to rake in enough votes to make it to Saturday night's final. 

Through a combined national jury/televoting system tonight’s 17 entries were whittled down to just 10. Joining the winners from last Tuesday, the “Big 5”, Austria, and Australia we have: Lithuania, Poland, Slovenia, Sweden, Norway, Montenegro, Cyprus, Azerbaijan, Latvia and Israel.

One “warrior” down, the Eurovision Song Contest’s grand finale will take place Saturday night, and we’ll be here Live-blogging the whole thing.
