PBS have just published a shortlist of the Malta Eurovision 2015 submissions.

This year, there were 134 submissions, a big drop from last year’s record breaking 210. From these, 48 where chosen to advance to the second phase of the competition. Against speculations, Ira will not be competing to represent Malta in Vienna. Past Maltese representatives to compete for a place in the final stage include Gianluca Bezzina (part of ‘L- Ahwa’) (2013), Glen Vella (2011), Olivia & Miriam (2007/1996) and Ludwig Galea (part of ‘Trilogy’) (2004).

Franklin Calleja has also made the cut although it is not confirmed if the song that made it through was written by Alexander Rybak or not.

The artist with most songs through is Domenique Azzopardi with a total of 5 songs.

An interesting name stands out from the list, a group with names Sr Michaela, Sr Monica, Sr Rita, Sr Claudia, Sr Denise & Sr Magdalong. Are they a group of singing sisters?

Here is the full list of shortlisted songs:
