The 20 entries in this year’s Malta Eurovision Song Contest have been online for a little over two weeks now, and it’s becoming very clear who your favourites are. As at 23:00 GMT 2,935 votes had been cast, and it seems y’all want Malta to send their first female soloist since 2010.

The Leaders

Amber is still at number one. And not only does she remain on top, she has also extended her lead over her nearest rival, Christabelle, to almost 6 percentage points. Jessika has also made gains, and now sits joint third with the Sisters (Ekklesia).

Mid Table

The rest of the top 14 remains largely the same. The only act to make any significant gains is Daniel Testa, who leapfrogs Franklin to move into 7th place.

The Stragglers

We now know that only 14 acts will progress from the semi final. If the Maltese public and jury think like wiwi readers; Deborah C, Domenique, Dominik, Corazon, Iona Dalli and Danica Muscat needn’t bother checking the availability  of Viennese hotel rooms for May.

For me, its either Raquel and Christabelle . I have a feeling that Amber would pull a Mei Finegold

I might be an odd one as the only songs I like in the competition are trilogy’s and Dominick’s once in a while is my favourite song. I don’t like any of the top 4 songs, sisters is just a novelty act, they can’t sing, can’t do anything religious for the real thing and with how religious their song is, will the EBC force them to change it?

Christabelle-Rush to win the National final!

@Jak pretty impossible to say that… since they haven’t been chosen yet and there’s still another 38 countries at least to choose their song.

I have just heard all the songs and do have two favourites: Amber and Raquel. These both women have the winning entry of 2015.

Rachel’s Stop Haunting Me is my pick. I love the song, the sound & the performer. Christobelle is good too. Amber is OK. Interestingly all songs are written by the same people. I like Daniel Testa too. L-Ahwa should restrict their song for family events. It’s a shocker. But it is Sister’s who are the jaw droppers. They can’t sing. Their vocals are terrible. Sure they get attention because they are nuns but will they be able to wear their habits in the contest? ESC is religion free (& rightly so). What we could even up with a cheesy song… Read more »

Amber’s song may be everything – but not typical at least. Proudly, I voted for her “Warrior”. All the songs, including “Warrior”, in Maltese national final sounds like demos. So I believe that they will work on it after winning and make it sounds better. My creator is (so I am) the biggest Lorde fan on this planet and a young musician who likes basses, drums, electronica, electropop, baroque pop and EDM. And we don’t have this kind of music in the Eurovision Song Contest – it is unique and so fresh for the Contest and a revised version could… Read more »

”Stop haunting me” is so unique and myserious, I love it! I’m also a fan of Jessika, L-Ahwa and Debroah C

Yeah, I like Amber’s song the more I listen to it but even if it does go to Vienna it isn’t going to achieve anything great, mediocre. Send “Stop Haunting Me” because of her quirky voice, or “Rush” because it is so catchy and will stick in people’s heads for the voting! I don’t see what the ‘hype’ is over “Fandango” to me it just sounds like 3 minutes of talking (Yes, talking, such an annoying voice) about a song with no cultural resemblance to Malta at all, it’s a Iberian dance. If the sisters get sent to Vienna, it’s… Read more »

I’m awarding my douze points to Ekklesia Sisters. Why? Their song has a powerful message, something that the Eurovision Song Contest needs more of. We’ve heard of a song with a powerful message win the contest this year, we’ve heard of a song with a powerful message win last 2008 as well to name a few. Secondly, the message of their song which is to care for the children/the youth does not only apply to a religious context, it’s a context that’s universal. We all have the responsibility to ensure the welfare of young people. I hope that the next… Read more »

Go, Franklin! TOP SONG!!!! (even though it has a ridiculous number of modulations, and he needs a serious makeover).

Ambers song is a typical dong that will either not make it to the final.. Or if it does it will be placed 20th like every maltese entry in the last few years.

The Nuns or Jessika are the best choices

Amber clearly has the most polished and accessible song out of the lot. I hope Malta sends her to Vienna.

I’m kind of an atheist, so I’m pretty sure I voted the Nuns because of the song. Christabelle ftw though.

L-Ahwa for the win

Amber / Chris Grech / Karen / Jessika / Christabelle or L-Ahwa for me.

And @ people who voted for the nuns: did you vote for the terrible song or because the singers are nuns?

My top 6:
1. Fandango (Seriously, how is everyone not hyping over this it’s amazing!)
2. Warrior (Yes, I see what the hype is about, it’s beautiful)
3. Stop Haunting Me
4. Rush
5. Beautiful To Me
6. It’s OK

But I’ll be happy as long as Chris Grech or Sisters don’t win

I don’t get the hype for Warrior, sorry.

L-Ahwa has the best song.

Daniel or Danica

To this day I can’t understand the overwhelming love for Amber’s song. It’s just not good at all to my ears and honestly in my bottom three. L-Ahwa or Christabelle for the win. If Ekklesia win I will lose all faith in humanity.

Warrior would definitely be at least on the left hand side of the scoreboard. Malta would be stupid not to send Amber

Hopefully the Maltese voters don’t have the same taste in music as the majority of voters on this site.
