In recent weeks, the announcement of the semi-finalists of this years' edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest has left many people baffled at the revelations that none of the former representatives of the country made it through whilst others who have not been familiar with the competition have submitted and will thus be competing in the first evening set to take place on the 1st February and hoping to make it through to the final evening on the 2nd February at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre in Ta' Qali. Popular television programme Xarabank also announced that the comical duo Gorġ u Pawlu who became known for their role on the programme TV Hemm would also be competing but later on, this was revealed to be a joke although the track that they presented in full entitled Hot and Famous has gone viral in the past couple of days and the duo will be taking on a series of promotional activities in the next couple of days.

The editorial board of has learnt that there is a lot of interest in the duo that has become known as Ġorg and Pawlu noting that their song Hot and Famous would place first in terms of views on the viral website, YouTube just ahead Chris Grech and his entry Never Walk Away which still leads the public poll. As a matter of fact, whilst the duo are most likely to perform at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest as guests, they will not be competing but their schedule is still pretty busy noting that they will be on Xarabank this evening, following by a performance on Ħadd Għalik on Sunday afternoon, an interview on TVAM this coming Monday followed by an interview on Bay Breakfast with Dorian Cassar. It is quite intriguing to denote that their schedule is as busy or rather even so more full than that of the actual competing entrants of this years' showcase. There have been calls by the public to let this entry compete but what are you thoughts about this? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned to for more news.
