In an internal audio round, in which the 50 songs left in the running for Malta Song for Europe 2006, the following songs have been chosen for the actual Maltese selection for the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest. Escmalta.com, present at the press conference where the 16 songs were announced, published the list below. We are awaiting official confirmation of the Maltasong committee.

Nadine Axisa, Pamela and Olivia Lewis have all been selected with two songs. The rules state that the composers of their song which got the least amount of votes in the internal preliminary round will have to look out for another performer among the artists in the internal round that didn't qualify. If they would wish to, the song can be withdrawn as well.
