The Malta Song for Europe was an annual festival establish in 1991 to select the song that would be Malta's entry to the Eurovision Song Contest.

During the initial years, each song was presented both in Maltese and English, but it was the English-language entry that was the official version for the Eurovision Song Contest.

The Maltese name for the event was Festival tal-Kanzunetta għall-Ewropa but this name was dropped by the organisers after 1997 (tbc?) as songs were only submitted and performed in English. This year also marked the end for the use of a live orchestra as all songs came to be accompanied by a pre-recorded backing track and only lead and main backing vocals were performed live.

This event took displaced the Festival Internazzjonali tal-Kanzunetta Maltija when it was first presented, and also served as a revised version of the Malta Song Festival. It was therefore seen as a catch-all festival that served a number of different purposes, but the main aim was always to produce Malta's entry to the Eurovision Song Contest after 1991.

In 2008 the event was renamed Malta EuroSong, but this name was only used for the 2009 and 2010 editions. The event has now evolved into the Malta Eurovision Song Contest.
