At her 11th attempt she finally won the 2007 festival, held in Ta'Qali on 3 February 2007, with the song "Vertigo" and represented Malta at the semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest held at the Hartwall Areena in Helsinki, Finland, on 10 May 2007. She performed in the 20th position following Norway's Guri Schanke with "Ven a bailar conmigo" and preceding Andorra's Anonymous with "Salvem el món". However, she did not manage to qualify for the final.
Lewis was the first female artist to perform during the Malta Jazz Festival together with the Paul Giordimaina trio. Her performance was the opening event at the 2005 festival. Lewis has also performed regularly at the International Festival of the Maltese Song, scoring as high as third place. She has won both the Lithuanian National Song Festival and the Bulgarian Song Festival.
On 10 May 2007, Olivia and her team participated in the semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Vertigo". Though highly tipped as a favourite to pass with online polls and betting companies, Olivia failed to reach the final for Malta and placed 25th out of 28 countries with just 15 points.
