Love Wave Contest 03, often referred as LWC, was the third edition of the Love Wave Contest. The third edition was held in Valletta Malta as it was the host's country. Maltese Radio Broadcasting Service (PBS) chose the "Parliament of Malta" in the capital city of the country. Ira Losco and Gianluca Bezzina were selected as the presenter of the event. fourty-two countries participated in the third edition.
In the LWC history first the 1st Semi-Final had to be interrupted due to technical problems concerning the correct procedure of the voting of each country.
Valletta owes its existence to the Knights of St John, who planned the city as a refuge to care for injured soldiers and pilgrims during the Crusades in the 16th century.
Until the arrival of the Knights, Mount Sceberras, on which Valletta stands, lying between two natural harbours, was an arid tongue of land. No building stood on its bare rocks except for a small watch tower, called St Elmo, to be found at its extreme end.
Grand Master La Valette, the gallant hero of the Great Siege of 1565, soon realised that if the Order was to maintain its hold on Malta, it had to provide adequate defences.
Therefore, he drew up a plan for a new fortified city on the Sceberras peninsula.
