The Malta EuroSong 2010 was the event by which Malta selected its entry for the Eurovision Song Contest in 2010 in May in Oslo, Norway. The Malta EuroSong 2010 final took place at Ta' Qali's Malta Fairs & Convention Centre on Saturday 20th February 2010.

Keith Demicoli and Pauline Agius hosted this edition of the Malta Eurosong, which was televised live on TVM. Owen Bonnici provided updates from the greenroom during the show. The show producer for PBS was Reuben Zammit while Martin Mercieca was the broadcast director.

The guests for the night included Mary Spiteri, Chasing Pandora, Winter Moods, and 2009’s Malta EuroSong winner Chiara.

Songs

122 entries were originally submitted and narrowed down to 36 entries, after they were performed in front of an international jury made up of local and foreign music critics: Michelle Abela, Christian Axiak, Mariella Spiteri and Joe Tanti (Malta), Munro Forbes (Cyprus), Johanna van Lent-Singles (Netherlands) and Jeff Simpson (United Kingdom). The first phase was held behind closed doors on 2, 3, and 4 December 2009.

Semifinals

The 36 selected songs were presented to another jury and a public vote on the popular TVM programme Sfida (which is the Maltese word for Challenge) broadcast weekly on Wednesdays between 9 December 2009 into 13 January 2010, in batches of six each week. Sfida was hosted by Malta’s Eurovision 2000 entry singer, Claudette Pace.
