Romania - They both were judges on the Romanian national final and helped choose Hotel FM as the Romanian representative. A day before the final Niamh Kavanagh (Ireland 1993, 2010) and Chiara (Malta 1998, 2004, 2009) took some time to talk to the press. They talked about leaving their families alone on New Years Eve, their new musical projects, the change of the Eurovision Song Contest and the Romanian national final. Chiara revealed that she had initially planned to enter the Maltese selection again in 2011, but the rules published by PBS prevented her from doing that. PBS decided to block the three last Eurovision entrants for three years (among them Chiara). Chiara said she didn’t like these rules as a song which is perfect now might not be perfect in three years.
