Mikaela represented Malta last year at JESC and Sarah has her own enter in the final, so they will not join them. Gabriella is Francesca’s (from 2009) little sister. Jodie came 2nd in 2008 with “The Zoo” and is the younger sister of Paulanne who was part of the group CUTE who represented Malta in 2007.
