The 16 song finalists for the much-awaited Malta Eurovision Song Contest to be held on 18th February have been announced. In all, 156 songs were submitted of which 60 were selected and later were reduced to 16 by a panel of experts in the Malta musical scene.
The jury heard recordings of the songs during a special session at St James Cavalier in the presence of composers and singers. The 16 selected were announced by PBS CEO John Bundy this evening.
For the first time the final of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest will be held in one session and the jury will be the general public who will use televoting. The winning song will represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Kiev, The Ukraine, in early May next year.
