Malta will be selecting its Eurovision candidate using the same format as the previous two years, the Malta Eurovision Song Contest (or MESC).

From 27 October onwards, each week the songs will premier on "XOW," a Maltese TV show, nine at a time. This will happen over four weeks. And the jury, which also includes the public, will determine which 12 of the 36 songs will go on to the finals.

It's still unknown when the final show of MESC will happen.
