Over the last past month, you have been submitting your predictions for the latest round of Eurovision Prediction 2022. In one of the six finals due to take place tonight, you were asked to predict the winner of MESC. Now, let’s take a look at who you collectively expect to win the Maltese ticket to Turin!
Following last night’s semi-final, the final of MESC will take place tonight, featuring a whopping 17 entries in total. After the semi-finals stage, six artists were eliminated…only for a televote ‘wildcard’ to be granted to Jessika this morning.

The finalists are:
- Aidan Cassar – Ritmu

Unlike with other countries, our players have a strong track record for predicting the outcomes of Maltese selections.
Back in 2020, 94% of our players correctly predicted Destiny’s X Factor Malta win. And back in 2019, 74% of our players predicted Michela’s victory.
Members of the ESCXTRA team may be disappointed with this result, as they also selected Nicole Azzopardi’s “Into the Fire” as their winner in our XTRA Decides feature.
After each national final, the points will be assigned and you will receive a rankings update via our Eurovision Prediction platform. Furthermore, we will make sure to notify you via our Eurovision Prediction Facebook page, our Eurovision Prediction Twitter page and here on the ESCXTRA website. The player that accumulates the most points after all the rounds have taken place will be crowned the winner of Eurovision Prediction 2022!
In 2021, our 363 prediction players predicted the correct national winners 7 out of 13 times. The year before, in 2020, 10 of out 27 times…an all-time low. To be fair, 2020 was a very unpredictable year in general. In 2019, our Eurovision Prediction players collectively predicted 16 out of 29 national final winners correctly. In 2018, your record was 19 out of 30.
So far, our players have guessed 5 out of 11 selections correctly. Let’s see how many of tonight’s five entries will have been predicted correctly.
With 25 national finals for 2022 overall, there are still PLENTY of points up for grabs!
