    i would love to see "Loverdose" at Eurovision... first Maltese song I have ever gotten really into.

    So it will probably miss the final.

    Malta has a LOT of excellent songs. I have found it really hard to choose the winner, At the moment I favor Klinsmann, Chirs Grech, Kevin Borg and Jessika. I think Chris's song is excellent but am not sure how it would go in the Eurovision comp - but the other 3 sound like they are ready made for Eurovision. There will be a lot of disappointed people after the comp - but good luck to everyone - its a tough comp this year, report to the moderator

    Malta really has great songs! I hope they don't make a mistake like last year and choose the best and the one who deserves it!
    Songs that I can't stop listening are Raquela - Keep Believing very catchy, great lyrics and her voice is great! ♥. Jessica - Ultraviolet. beautiful lyrics and music, I hope she'll make it well live! Starting from the end by the great Dorothy, Betrayed (that is awesome) & When it's time! ♥
    The others I like are Love-o-holic, Loverdose, Fall like Rome, Tides of illusion, No one's home, Tomorrow, Fantasy, In control (really catchy and Amber's voice is awesome!) & Let your heart talk. Hope I don't remeber anyone LOL.
    Can't wait to Maltese final!!! I'm sure they'll give a great show.
