Malta's participation within the Eurovision Song Contest is regulated by the Public Broadcasting Services who earlier this week were accepting entries for the upcoming edition of the national selection. In an evening news bulletin read out by former Malta Eurovision Song Contest host, Keith Demicoli, it was revealed that a record number of two hundred and ten (210) submissions were received at the end of the allocated period. In 2013, Gianluca and his entry Tomorrow co-written by Boris Cezek and Dean Muscat was selected out of one hundred and eighty one (181) tracks, meaning that there have been thirty (30) more submissions when comparing year-on-year.

It was also stated during the news bulletin that the upcoming edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest will be taking place at the end of January, beginning of February, pertaining to logistics. The full details will be revealed towards the latter stages of November when the twenty (20) semi-finalists who will be competing within the local showcase and hoping to head to Copenhagen, Denmark will be selected. At this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, Malta finished in eighth place following an astonishing performance of the track Tomorrow. It was the nations' best result since 2005 when Chiara and her self-penned entry Angel had finished in second place.

Amongst the former runner-ups of the local showcase who have submitted entries into the showcase, there are; Richard Edwards, Tiziana Calleja, Kaya, Davinia Pace whilst others including; Klinsmann, Roger Tirazona, Melanie Zammit and most notably, Claudia Faniello all confirmed their absence from the competition at least during the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2014. We urge you to stay tuned to in the coming weeks as more revelations are made including those concerning the annual awards which will be given on ONE.
