What else do we know about MESC 2022?
Malta returns to MESC as its selection format this year, having used The X Factor Malta as its selection process for the last few years. 22 acts will compete for a place in a 16-song grand final, where a jury and televote will select Malta’s entry for Eurovision in Turin this year. The Semi-Final is due to take place on the 17th of February, with the Final taking place two days later on the 19th of February.
Malta’s Eurovision Journey
Malta made its Eurovision debut in 1971, with Joe Grech performing “Marija I-Maltija” (Maria the Maltese Lass), finishing 18th with 52 points. Malta did not participate in Eurovision from 1975 until 1991. That year they returned with the song “Could It Be” by Paul Giordimaina and Georgina, finishing 12th with 32 points.
Since then, Malta has been at every Eurovision and finished in the top 10 an impressive 12 times. Their best result so far is second place, which they’ve achieved twice. The first time was in 2002, when Ira Losco sang “7th Wonder,” and the second time in 2005 with Chiara’s “Angel.” Malta’s most recent Eurovision entry was 2015 Junior Eurovision winner Destiny, who scored 255 points and finished 7th with the song “Je me casse.”
