All seem to be ready for this year’s Malta’s  national final that will determine the country’s next representative at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon next May.

The 16 competing national final songs have gone public and on February 3 the MESC will take place on the village of  Ta’Qali. This year’s national final logo #jointhemagic while specific changed will be enforced on the voting process. After last year’s rather  disappointing results, the executives of the Maltese broadcaster decided to restore the jury’s role in the national final. Therefore the winner of MESC 2018 and Malta’s next representative will be determined equally by public and jury voting  with a 50% each.
