When he won the Malta Song for Europe 2001 festival with Another Summer Night, Malta's entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 2001, he said, "I have entered the [local] festival four times, and twice before I came second. I am very happy to have won and excited to be representing Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest. I would like to thank all my fans, the fantastic audience who were present at the festival and all the people who voted for me through the televoting system. Without them, I would not be here."
