ON THE SPOT: LIVE FROM MALTA
MALTA – Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2018 is the national final format developed by PBS to select the Maltese entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. The show is set for the 3rd of February and will be presented by the Maltese radio-presenter Colin Fitz.
On September 15th, PBS announced the list of the 30 songs that had qualified for the last stage before the final. During the 27th, 29th and 30th of September these songs competed behind closed doors, where a jury decided which 16 songs would qualify for the televised final. They were revealed on 11 October 2017.
On January 19th, a new version of “Dai Laga” was released, replacing the previous edition which was said to have breached EBU regulations due to it including some instrumental music that may have been bought via the internet by the composer. PBS asked the composer to remove the stem or provide a revised instrumentation.
The final will be held on the 3rd February 2018. All songs were released on the 4th January 2018.
