    Re: MALTA 2018

    Not a bad NF from Malta at all! There's quite a few I wouldn't mind going to Lisbon: Richard & Joe (who I guess will win lol), Avenue Sky or one of our Maltese 'divas' Jasmine and Deborah being the best of them I think! And I hadn't much rated Aidan's original version of Dai Laga but I love this revamp! So I guess Richard & Joe or Aidan.

    Re: MALTA 2018

    Just made it through the Maltese final 16... it's not a bad selection, but I didn't think I heard an obvious winner...

    For me, one song really stood out though: Matthew Anthony - "Call 2morrow".

    It's modern, a little different, and gives me Jack Garratt vibes.

    It might be too subtle and chilled to get attention, but it would certainly deserve to qualify. Easily my choice for this year.

    Ever since the 'ooh they released all the new songs' hype went, I've realized how meh most of the entries are.

    In the meanwhile, check out the song reviews I've done!

    Ooh, in-depth predictions. Always my kind of thing. Most of your guesses up the top are pretty much what I'd expect myself, though I think you might be underestimating Rhiannon with a good enough performance, I feel she could at least nab that fourth-ish spot you've got Jasmine in. Apart from that, I'd probably have Richard & Joe up as one of the top three contenders for the win, but your guess of sixth is possible too if Malta doesn't warm to them like I expect.

    As for my personal opinion on the quality of the entries, I'm... well. There's a lot of stuff here I like I enjoy just about half of the songs on offer here, which is a lot more than I do in most NFs but there's very little to love. It's as if the selection is filled entirely with songs that are on the borderline of "nice" and "not quite good enough to call nice"... just a lot of stuff in the middle.

    That said, there are a couple of standouts that I enjoy myself and feel could work at Eurovision, with Richard & Joe and Eleanor as the main ones of note. Rhiannon could be a dark horse too if executed brilliantly. I don't think there's anything to trouble the higher spots of the scoreboard in May though.

    Re: MALTA 2018

    So this national final is made up mostly of commercial pop songs that all sound similar. I don't think that the general quality is bad, it's actually quite good, much better than Malta's last few NFs. But it's all very homogeneous. The songs only start to differentiate more with 1 or 2 extra listenings.
    Another thing that I noticed is how terrible the majority of the lyrics are. It's really bad in some cases.

    I think that 3 songs are ahead of the pack though. Brooke has a very infectious uplifting feel good song with "Heart of gold". However this one suffers tremendously from the bad lyrics previously mentioned. I mean, I am beautiful like a pack of wolves with a heart of gold? Well I'm glad to know that, thank you Brooke.
    Eleanor with "Back to life" is very powerful, especially that final chorus. If she hits those notes tomorrow she could very well win. And Rhiannon with "Beyond blue horizons" is a underrated pearl in my opinion. It has so much soul and it develops so smoothly troughout the 3 minutes! If Rhiannon can make it justice tomorrow it could surprise a lot of people.

    There are a lot of other good songs though. "Dai laga", "Rocket", "Call 2morrow", "Song for dad", "Supernovas" etc. Bar a terrible choice from Malta, they are definitely going to improve on their entry last year.

    By the way, Deborah C's song is sooooo much like a traditional pimba Portuguese song but in English. I hate it with a passion.

    Re: MALTA 2018

    "Song for Dad" is the only acceptable choice here.
    Maybe someone else will surprise me with the performance

    Re: MALTA 2018

    I actually think its one of the Stronger NFs. Richard and Joe would get Malta probably the best Result at Eurovision.

    That would mean winning, since they been 2nd twice (2002 and 2005)? Even if Richard & Joe is one of the few fine songs in the maltese selection, I have a hard time seeing them get pass top 20 in a final, but I could be wrong...

    No, I mean R&J would get a higher Result in Lisbon that the other 15.
