Eurovision entry from Malta will remain the same as chosen by the Maltese viewers after being confirmed at a meeting held by recently appointed PBS CEO John Bundy, HoD Doreen Cortis and TV producer and host Gordon Bonello. PBS is running out of time with the preparations for the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2017 which will be held- after a break of two editions – at the Malta Fairs and Convention Centre (MFCC) in Ta’Qali on the 18th of February.
As we informed a few days ago, the Maltese song at next year’s Eurovision Song Contest will be solely decide by the televoting for the first time ever and every Maltese phone number will be only able to vote once from the same line.
During the press and participants meeting, it was also drawn who will be performing first and last in the festival: Klinsmann with “Laserlight” will be opening the show whilst Claudia Faniello will be last with “Breathlessly”.
Bundy stated they want the artists to be concentrated on their voices and the song they are singing, which is what really matters, whilst they must leave everything else behind. Bundy added that all 16 singers, as they all have 16 winning entries of the Maltese contest, will be treated equally. So therefore “a special schedule has been created to promoted every of them in the very same way”.
The production of the contest will be in charge of John Bundy, Doreen Cortis, Gordon Bonello and also Charles Dalli, they all were involved at this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
Stay tuned for further details on this year’s MESC!
