Malta, an island of Eurovision fanatics who are yet to score their first win. Now Malta is preparing for their 2017 attempt, with a call for entries in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest national final. And the contest is undergoing a few changes for 2017.
PBS has announced the single date when entries for MESC 2017 will be accepted. Entries can be dropped off at the Creativity Hub in Gwardmanga on November 30th between the very specific hours of 9am and noon and then from 2pm till 4pm.
It’s also been confirmed that MESC will no longer have a semi-final, instead just holding one big grand final. In recent years, the show has started with 20 acts in the semi-final, reduced to 14 for the grand final. In 2017, we’ll just see 16 acts competing in the grand final.Malta’s new stand-alone final is due to take place in February 2017. The winning artist will then go on to represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv, Ukraine during the second week in May.
