Claudia Faniello could convince viewers the lion’s share of the Maltese in the preliminary round Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2017, and got the ticket to Kiev gift.

Faniello with Breathlessly did what at its eight (!) previous entries to the national final in her country did not succeed: win. The singer every year between 2006 and 2013 took part in the preliminary round. She came several times in the neighborhood of the win, but finally had to SIP every time the thumbs.

Only televoting was used to determine the results, and only the top three was announced. Singer Kevin Borg, also an artist with different previous experiences in the Maltese for round, clinched the bronze road. The Silver went to Janice Mangion and her Malteestalige song. The gold went, such as conscience, to Claudia Faniello. The outcome of Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2017, as far as announced:
