Quite a few changes for Malta's 2017 selection process. Televoting will play a much larger part in the result than usual, there's no semi-final to eliminate 6-8 of the entries and the show is happening later than it has done in the last few years!

I'm really hoping to see Maxine Pace return, if she brings another song like "Young Love" then she'd definitely pick up the cutesy vote that Gianluca got a few years ago!

So, Malta do this thing every year where they release a 'longlist' of songs that have got through to the final pre-televised jury check where basically every single singer in Malta of working age gets a look in. The source here reveals that all of the usual suspects are there including fan favourites Jessika, Brooke, Kevin Borg, Maxine Pace, Richard Edwards outta Firelight, everyone with the surnames Faniello or Calleja and tragifave Deborah C (sadly this time only in a duet).

So, to my mind, the three main standouts are:

Brooke Borg – “Unstoppable” (strikes me as the kind of song Ira thought 'Chameleon' was, got serious potential this one!)
Claudia Faniello – “Breathlessly” (major Disney ballad influences with this one)
Maxine Pace – “Bombshell” (she's moved from Meghan Trainor to early Little Mix but this is another one with serious potential)

Kevin Borg and Richard Edwards are probably going to do reasonably well with their rather bland efforts but hopefully one of these three will get it.

All of that last four are in with the biggest chance I think, Maxine's number is being very underrated!

Oh I'd LOVE Maxine, her song has the most potential for Eurovision itself I think. It's so cutesy and catchy and will go down very well with jury and televoters alike. It all depends on the exact details of this televote/jury split. If it is going to be 50/50 then it's very hard to see past the Borgs and Claudia at a push. I'd love Maxine to be a contender though!

Brooke texting every Maltese person not working then, what a costly flop she's had.

It's a nice entry from Malta but that's all I can say about it, think it'll struggle to get out of the semi.

I desperately want Malta to win. They literally get so excited about the contest - for a country that only has a population of 400,000 it's pretty impressive that over 18,000 votes were cast in the national final.

Doubt we are going to be in Malta in 2018 with this entry but I really hope they get a winner soon!

It was limited to only 1 valid vote per phone number too, so even more impressive when taking into account that multivoting wasn't even possible.
