Claudette Buttigieg, who represented Malta in the 2000 edition with her song ‘Desire’, was an official guest speaker in Liverpool, discussing Eurovision as a tool of diplomacy.
Buttigieg, who is now a prominent member of the Nationalist Party in Malta, got the opportunity to represent Malta again in relation to this concert, but this time through a very different lens.

New York based Instagram Eurovision fan page @eurovisonyc shared a story of Buttigieg at the summit, who expressed her gratitude for being involved whilst also reminding fans of who exactly she is.
And what better way to do so other than by singing a part of her iconic song ‘Desire’. She went on to urge people to watch the contest, having spoken about it as being a potential tool for more connectivity and diplomacy across Europe and the rest of the world.
