A couple of weeks ago PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) announced the 30 songs that will fight for the 16 spots of the Maltese National Final. Yesterday, PBS published the 16 songs and their artists that will compete in order to represent Malta in Lisbon.
The 16 Finalists are:

The National Final of Malta will probably take place in February at Mediterranean Conference Center and the audience will choose the winner (televoting 100%).
Among the 16 finalists we can see some familiar names like Brooke Borg. Brooke competed in the 2016 National Final and Finished 2nd (after Ira Losco). She also took part in the National Final in 2017.
Christabelle tried twice to represent Malta in 2015 and 2016 but didn’t have the audience’s support.
Other familiar names are Deborah C ,Danica Muscat, Lawrence Gray and Richard Micallef.
Malta has never won the contest and she counts two second and two third spots in the Final scoreboard. Last time that Malta entered the top-10 was in 2013 with Gianluca Bezzina and his song Tomorrow (8th place).
