What an exciting show PBS gave us tonight! After some tension and shaking nerves, Malta has decided that Claudia Faniello, sister of former representative Fabrizio Faniello, must represent them at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Breathlessly”. The show took place live from Ta’Qali’s Malta Fairs and Convention Centre and was presented by Daniel Azzopardi and Charlene Mercieca.
The decision has been made 100% by the Maltese audience with their SMS’, who could only vote once from the same phone number. The third and second places have been awarded to Kevin Borg and Janice respectively.
These are the acts which competed on stage tonight:
- Klinsmann – Laserlight
- Raquela – Ray of light
- Deborah C & Josef Tabone – Tonight
- Kevin Borg – Follow
- Jade – Seconds away
- Crosswalk – So simple
- Franklin – Follow me
- Rhiannon – Fearless
- Miriana Conte – Don’t look down
- Shauna – Crazy games
- Janice Mangion – Kewkba
- Cherton – Fighting to survive
- Maxine – Bombshell
- Richard Edwards – You
- Brooke – Unstoppable
- Claudia Faniello – Breathlessly
Fans could also see a few familiar faces who already tried to gain the hearts of the audience in previous years such as Richard Edwards, Claudia Faniello, Kevin Borg, Maxine, Brooke or Franklin Calleja among others.
2002 and 2016 Maltese entrant Ira Losco and JESC 2016 star Christina Magrin were also performing at the festival in Ta’Qali as invited guests, both of them presented their latest productions.
