PBS, the Maltese broadcaster, will announce tonight the 20 acts that will compete to the televised final which will be held on the 7 and 8 February 2014.

PBS received a record breaking 210 submissions for the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2014, from which they picked 70 songs to proceed to the second phase of the competition.

For the 4th consecutive year, the local programme Xarabank will be used to announce the finalists one by one. As in previous years, a snippet of all the songs will be heard during the programme.

The 20 acts will then compete in a semi-final on Friday 7 February 2014, where 14 acts will qualify to the final on Saturday 8 February 2014. The winner will represent Malta at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Denmark.

You can watch the show live tonight on TVM at 20:45 CET here.
