The full versions of the 20 semi-final songs for the Malta Eurovision Song Contest have been released on TVM’s website.

The semi-final will take place on January 22, whittling the number further to 14, who will then go head-to-head in the final following day. The winner will represent Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm in May.

Among the contenders this year is Ira Losco, who will contest with two songs – ‘Chameleon’ and ‘That’s Why I Love You’. Losco’s Eurovision legacy remains undimmed in Malta – she nearly snatched the prize in 2002 when she competed in Estonia with ‘Seventh Wonder’ coming a very close second to Latvia’s Marie N.

Laurence Gray will try his luck yet at the grand prize for the tenth time, with his ballad ‘You’re Beautiful’.

Dominique Azzopardi – Empty hearted
