It has been announced that Malta will be returning to a National Final for 2022, after using the winner of the past two seasons of the Maltese X Factor. While the X Factor is returning for a third season, Jason Micallef, the Chairman of the Valletta Cultural Agency has confirmed the change in approach:
“It is fitting to commend the wise decision of the new management of PBS, that with immediate effect, the representative of Malta in the next edition of Eurovision will be selected through a specially staged festival, and not simply select the winner of X Factor Malta.
I am convinced that this news will be received with great satisfaction by all Maltese singers, authors and composers.”
