The results are in! We asked y’all back on January 4, when all 16 entries were revealed for Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2018, who you wanted to see win. With 5,874 votes cast in total, you’ve chosen Eleanor Cassar as your favourite with “Back to Life”!
Eleanor makes her return to MESC after not participating since 2012. She’s previously placed in the top ten on five occasions, even finishing 2nd in 2009 with “Someday”.
“Back to Life” is co-written by two familiar faces amongst Eurovision and national final entries, Jonas Gladnikoff and Michael James Down. And clearly, y’all think that this could be a hit for Malta at Eurovision.
Eleanor received 760 votes in total, just under 13% of the vote.
Not far behind here though was Lawrence Gray, with his track “Love Renegade”. Lawrence is another long-time MESC veteran, hoping to finally win and make it to Eurovision. He’s certainly picked up fans along the way, as he took 736 votes.
And just behind Lawrence comes Tiziana. It’s not her first time at MESC, but she sings “First Time” nonetheless. She received 732 votes, just four off Lawrence.
Finally, the top five is rounded off by Brooke (who received 600 votes) and Christabelle (482 votes).
