The Malta Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019 has now come to stay and it will during the month ahead when the public will have a say so that they can have their word on selecting their entrant for Poland.
PBS, the Maltese Public TV and Radio Corporation, has just uploaded and released the videos of the 12 candidates who will try to bring Eurovision glory to the country in November. Only one of them can make it to Gliwice and expectations are as high as Malta holds the title to be one of the countries at Junior Eurovision who has been most successful at.
This year, the Malta Junior Eurovision has suffered some big changes which will increase the excitement towards the artist selection. PBS has given the kids the chance to perform any cover of a popular song that they might like as well as original tracks which they could have been approached for or just self-written.
