VALLETTA, MALTA – Before reading this article please notice this is to be taken under high consideration! Several signs have reached us that Malta is about to change the way of selecting their next ESC entry. Like the 2015 junior entry Destiny was chosen this could be very good going the same way.
How would it proceed? Well in a main way the same way Azerbaijan (close friends with maltese delegation as shown in the voting in past years). First a singer is chosen by having them performing covers. And after that in discussion with the management and tv-broadcaster the best song is t be chosen.
Well is this good? Well it could be! Just if the selection of the best voice is chosen in the right way. There is no need to tell who are the best vocals in Malta at this moment so lets hope – providing this will be the way of selection! – that the selection will be done in the best way! Our suggestion would be to have an independent international jury – not connected to the Maltese delegation at any point – to have a big say in it.
Let’s wait now and see. Would Chiara come back with these rules? Should Ira risk this selection? Has Glenn Vella any chance on this? Or can we see finally some new faces like Franklin Calleja? Time will tell in the coming days or weeks
