Live Report, originally called Midnight Blue, composed of Ray Caruana, John Beeby, Brian Hodgson, Maggie Jay and Peter May. They were finalists in the BBC Television's A Song for Europe contest in 1989 with the song, "Why Do I Always Get It Wrong". It scored 111,996 votes, compared to runner-up Julie C's 51,449 votes. Live Report went on to represent the UK in the 1989 Eurovision Song Contest in Lausanne, where they finished second to the Yugoslav entry, "Rock Me" performed by Riva. "Why Do I Always Get It Wrong" spent one week in the UK Singles Chart at #73 in May 1989.[1] Since drummer Peter May was requested to play with Cliff Richard in a concert tour, he was replaced by Richard Marcangelo.

Ray Caruana participated in the Maltese heat of the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, and came second with "Scarlet Song".
