Maltese broadcaster PBS has decided to bring back a 50% jury vote in 2018. This means the end of a one-year-experiment with 100% televoting.
The 16 finalists have been announced in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2018. PBS announced them live on the evening news (11th October).
TVM, the national broadcaster in Malta, have released a shortlist of 30 names for the Malta Eurovision Song Contest. The final will be held in February 2018.
The Maltese national final will be held in January 2018. That is the date set out in the TVM MESC 2018 Rules and Regulations document. The venue and exact date are still yet to be confirmed.
Malta will maintain the use of 100% televoting in its national final. Broadcaster PBS revealed today that despite the disappointing result of Claudia Faniello, they will make no changes to the selection process.
Claudia Faniello tried to represent Malta at Eurovision many times before and had a couple years behind here. But she is grateful for these experiences, she tells ESC Daily.
The last three winners of Eurovision only got to the contest, after losing in a previous national final first. This year, many artists with a similar track record will try to follow in their footsteps. In this episode we highlight Claudia Faniello from Malta.
The video for Claudia Faniello’s Eurovision single ‘Breathlessly’ was released today by PBS. It is now available to view on the official Youtube channel of Eurovision.tv
