Twenty acts will compete at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2016–the Maltese national selection for Eurovision 2016–but there will only be one winner. To help you make an informed decision on who to pay attention to, the Wiwi Jury–our in-house panel of music unprofessionals–will preview and review each of this year’s acts. We’re ready to pick our favourite for Malta!

Our jury for this edition consists of 18 jurors who hail from Australia, Austria, Croatia, Georgia, Greece, Italy, Morocco, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom. We are truly international, y’all. Each juror assesses each song independently, and awards each song a score from 0 to 10. Before calculating the Wiwi Jury verdict, we drop the highest and lowest scores to reduce potential bias and outliers.

We’ll be unrolling these one by one over the coming weeks. You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the song title.
