MY TOP 3:

3 – JASMINE ALIVE
2 – DANIEL TESTA UNDER THE SUN
1 – IRA LOSCO CHAMELEON

I agree that Chamelon is a really good song and I wouldn’t mind seeing it as a winner.

My other favorites are Jessika (It’s about a time she wins), Dominic (that song is really catchy and could pass really well on ESC), Corazon and Brooke, both with lovely ballads.

Several songs are either really forgettable, generic or have overdone vocal performance.

OMG Falling glass!!!! Definitely one ot the best song in MESC ever!!!

Helena

Falling glass is so awesome!!! It’s so obvius that it’s the most suitable for ESC. I wonder if Chameleon was sung by an unknown singer, how many supporters it would have and how many would place it at the first place!

Corazon – Falling glass is great! wish a lot of luck for this amazing song!

I think after listening to them for many times…i think the best songs are;
Corazon – Falling glass
Brooke – Golden
Jasmine – Alive

Ira losco’s is so overrated but she has an amazing PR team that will make her win the nationals. She will do nothing at the Eurovision though..her songs lack something..

FALLING GLASS is sooooo amazing!!!!
My favorites in order..
No 1 – CORAZON with FALLING GLASS

Thanks Cookie monsta, just today I knew about more songs, and I have to say 30 sec, CHANGE A LOT when the full version is heard. Some songs I’ve heard already but I’m not ready to make a decision until I get all of the songs from the beginning till the end. The problem with this article is that it misguides people to have a fav when the full songs aren’t even out and thus a very trended version of the full contest, with the result of being stubborn at a song when there are a lot more. Plus it’s… Read more »

I feel like Ira Losco is overrated and it’s over shadowed by amazing artists and songs, My top 5 is:

Corazon – Falling Glass
Jasmine Abela – Alive
Jessika – The Flame
Deborah C – All around the world
Raquel – Flashing Lights

If any of these win I’ll be happy ????????????????

@AM Casablancas: Usually, about a month before the MESC, PBS Malta televises a show in which each contender gets on a little stage to present, for the first time, the full 3-minute versions of their songs.

This would be that week; but it is Christmas week; so, I imagine they will have that show next week, and the performances will be posted at YouTube.

Here are last year’s presentations a month before the 2015 MESC:

I imagine they will do the same thing in the final week of this year, or the first week of January 2016.

First of all those are snippets (30 second-ish), second some artist don’t even have the radio edit version, some are even in A-capella. Third, in order to run a poll on something the audience should at least hear the songs before, or have you seen anyone who rate a song by their 30sec. clip? I’d rather wait a couple weeks more thanks, and I encourage you that prior to have a “fav” hear all of the songs at least once, and wiwiblogs to be more objective, I know they always try to give us fresh news but that doesn’t mean… Read more »

Young Love is my favourite by far!! It’s catchy and modern, I can’t wait to hear it live as I think she will bring some much needed energy amongst a sea of ballads in the MESC semi final. I really hope she wins as I think she’s the perfect choice to represent Malta in Stockholm 2016. But after listening to all the entries I’m really excited for the national final next month 🙂 -Good Luck Maxine!

After listening to the full versions I have made some changes to my favorites

Ira Losco Chameleon
Good but not special
Christabele Kingdom
sounds extremely messy. preferred to listen to the one minute version.
Brooke Golden
I like it. one of my top favorites
Jessika
Now that I heard the full version I think she could be a serious contender. Refined song
Ira That’s why I love you
Good.
Franklin
Dull
Maxine Pace
Cute song. Cute girl. I will have to listen to this live. One of my favorites.
Jasmine Alive
Sound like a Melodifestivalen reject. She has a good voice though

Chameleon seems like it could have somewhere between ‘some’ to ‘huge’ potential in Eurovision. Not sure how well it would do though!

Alive is decent too, but seems like a “runner-up” type of song to me. Seems like it’s stitched up by parts of other songs.. Survivor – Paparizou?

In the snippets I thought only Lighthouse was interesting (didn’t hear the Ira Losco songs), but sadly the full-version was a bit boring

Pastora Soler haha!

Jessica ^^

Yep I called it when the snippets were released, Alive and Chameleon are the strongest entries. But Franklin (If his live performance is slick) could have the dark horse in this bunch.

Chameleon
Alive (vocal potential…amazing)
Golden.

Alive or Chameleon have most potential to do better on Eurovision, but the voice of Franklin is interesting

It’s so different hearing the full versions of the songs. There were a couple where the Xarabank snippet was very promising, but the full version has been a huge disappointment.

My favourites:
1. Ira Losco – Chameleon
2. Domenique – Empty Hearted
3. Corazon – Falling Glass
4. Christabelle – Kingdom
5. Brooke – Golden

Also, has anyone noticed how the instrumental to Dario’s “I Love You” sounds a bit like the instrumental to Timbaland and OneRepublic’s “Apologize?

MarioMario
Guest

They all sound very similar. Most are a mess.

Songs with potential:

Brooke – GOLDEN
Maxine Pace – YOUNG LOVE
Jessika – THE FLAME
Jasmine Abela – ALIVE
Corazon – FALLING GLASS

These have potential but are kinda messy.

Christabelle – KINGDOM
Ira Losco – CHAMELEON
Domenique – EMPTY HEARTED

The rest are too messy for my taste.

“Chameleon” is the best, but I do like “Young Love” too. Most of the other songs end up sounding the same.

OH MY GOD I LOVE CHRISTABELLE THIS YEAR. She was amazing last year, and again this year. I’d love to see her in Malta. I quite like Jessika, but I prefered Fandango last year. But Christabelle for the win!

Maxine Pace would be perfect and I would be depressed if she doesn’t win, but with all tha love for Ira Losco, I doubt it 🙁 We barely heard her songs and everyone loves it already.
