Revision as of 08:23, 4 February 2012

Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2012 is the television show by which PBS will select Malta's entry to the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Baku, Azerbaijan between the 22 and 26 May 2012.

The regulation for this edition of the contest were announced by PBS Friday 26 August 2011 and made available to interested parties via email. There appear to be only minor changes from the previous year's regulations. The fee for submitting an entry is €150. Non-Maltese songwriters are still eligible to submit songs but the main singer/s for each submission must be a citizen or permanent resident of Malta. The main alteration from the previous edition is that the broadcaster now holds the right to award wildcards either in the semi-final or the final of the song selection.

Submissions were accepted at the main PBS building in Gwardamangia on 20 and 21 October 2011 between 9:00 am and noon, as well as between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm.

During the first phase of selection, all submissions were heard on CD by a judging panel made up of both local and international creative professionals. In the second phase, the selected songs will be performed live by their respective artist in front of another panel of judges.

Songs

A total of 161 entries were submitted to PBS in 2011 for the 2012 contest. 62 songs from the original lot were chosen to be performed live in front of a panel of experts behind closed doors. 38 of the songs in this phase of the competition were eliminated.

The 24 songs selected for the semifinal were announced by PBS on Friday 25 November 2011 during the popular TV show Xarabank.

Here's the list of songs in alphabetical order by singers first names, as originally released by PBS. This list is also sortable by the semifinal running order:
