Panic not OnEuropeans, I’m gonna be boosting this article with a one line summary of the artistes as the day goes on but we here at OnEurope Towers thought of YOU first. All the MP3s in one place!!!
Roll up, roll up. A little pre-Christmas listening pleasure from that sunny little Eurovision-obsessed archipelago of five islands in the Central Mediterranean Sea, Malta.
The Maltese take over presidency of the Council of the European Union in January and hold it through to July, so any country looking for a ‘favour’ might be well placed to vote for their Eurovision entry in May – that’s not to suggest that the Maltese have ever been implicated in any voting scandals in the past. Goodness me no.
On 18 February, sixteen plucky performers get to sing their hearts out for a place in Kiev. Unlike in recent years, the winner is decided purely on the basis of a public vote.
