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

Tonight, the last of four XOW shows took place in Malta. Each Friday from 27 October to 17 November, 36 songs were presented on the show XOW hoping to land a spot in the MESC Final.

The Final of MESC 2024 will take place in January, but none of the finalists will perform live during the Final.

Prior to the Final, the 12 finalists will record a live-on-tape version of their song along with a music video. These videos will be shown at the Final of MESC 2024, and a jury and the Maltese public will vote for their favorite to represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 in Malmö.
