I wasn't expecting this! PBS, the national broadcaster, has announced the Maltese national final will take place on 22nd November. A semi-final will be held the day before, on 21st November. The selection will consist of 20 participants. Junior Eurovision takes place a week before in Malta Shipbuilding, Marsa - which is the same venue that'll host the national final. The Maltese broadcaster has said this decision has been taken so they can ensure a very high quality performance is showcased in Austria. The winning song may be revamped, or changed all together.
