Malta teases Eurovision song for choice for 2018 – With added Youtubeage

Malta song for Europe entrants 2018

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. And even if is ever-so slightly chipped, give it another year or two. I could be talking about a family heirloom. In fact, my subject matter is the Maltese Eurovision national selection.

Malta has taken over from Portugal as the country with the biggest number of near and far misses when it comes to Eurovision. They aim to change all that .

Those in charge considered 129 songs, before broadcaster PBS released the list of sixteen that will compete for a place in Lisbon. The majority sound like team names from The Apprentice, but ‘Song for Dad’ already suggests something special.

Format-wise the competition will be the same as before. A bunch of performers (16) in a big hall in between lots of adverts.

The 16 finalists

Song Performer(s)
Dai laga Aidan
Rocket Miriana Conte
Supernovas Jasmine Abela
Call 2morrow Matthew Anthony
One step at a time Danica Muscat
Breaking point Dwett
Love renegade Lawrence Gray
Song for Dad Richard & Joe Micallef
First time Tiziana Calleja
Back to life Eleanor Cassar
Beyond blue horizons Rhiannon Micallef
Heart of gold Brooke Borg
Taboo Christabelle Borg
Turn it up Deborah C
We can run Avenue Sky
Evolution Petra

And just in case we can’t tease you ANY MORE, PBS or someone saying they are PBS have released all 16 songs on Youtube.  Want to see them? – well go here why don’t ya.

Voting will be mainly Jury with one juries worth of Televoting.
