Following the revelation of a potential breach of rules in Malta’s national final for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest, competitor Aidan has unveiled a revamped version of his bidding entry.

News broke early this month regarding a potential rule break in connection with one of the competing Malta Eurovision Song Contest (MESC) entries.

With the backing track of Dai laga, Aidan’s bidding entry, reportedly being made public back on the 14 August 2016, it was uncertain as to whether the song would still be eligible to compete in the national final.

Following reports of a breach of rules, the official Eurovision Song Malta YouTube channel has today published a revamped version of Aidan’s bidding entry, which sees the removal of the original backing track and replaced.

The backing track seems to be the only difference in the Dai laga revamp, with the lyrics of the entry remaining the same. PBS, the Maltese national broadcaster, has not revealed the reasons behind the revamp.
