Kyiv 2017

Full voting breakdowns revealed for the Malta Eurovision Song Contest

On Saturday evening, the 2017 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest took place. The Maltese public chose Claudia Faniello to represent the country in Kyiv with her ballad Breathlessly. Furthermore, for the first time ever televoting alone determined the winner of the national selection. Only the top three positions were revealed on the night. However, PBS have now revealed the full voting breakdowns from Saturday’s show.

The full televoting results

Overall, during the show 18,967 votes were cast. Lots of votes for a tiny island! The full voting results are as follows:

 1  Claudia Faniello  Breathlessly  4,996  16
 2  Janice Mangion  Kewkba  4,544  11
 3  Kevin Borg  Follow  2,502  4
 4  Brooke  Unstoppable  2,000  15
 5  Franklin  Follow Me  1,303  7
 6  Maxine Pace  Bombshell  627  13
 7  Deborah C & Josef  Tonight  572  3
 8  Raquela Dalli Gonzi  Ray Of Light  551  2
 9  Cherton Caruana  Fighting To Survive  340  12

 14  Jade Vella  Seconds Away  166  5
 15  Shauna Vassallo  Crazy Games  159  10
 16  Miriana Conte  Don’t Look Down  156  9

As we can see, the hot favourite before the contest wasn’t too far away from the top 3 in the end. Brooke was just 502 votes behind Kevin Borg in third place. Claudia was a very deserving winner, receiving more than a quarter of all the votes with 26.3%. A very impressive feat in a field of 16 entries!

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
