Sad news for Aidan, one of the favourites to win MESC 2023!
As it seems, the singer disqualified from Maltese National Final with his song “Regina” and he will no longer take part in MESC. According to TVMNews, the site has contacted with the producers of the national final and has been informed that Aidan broke the rules of the festival. Specifically, Aidan has been disqualified after breaching rules 5.3 and 5.6 of the competition regarding posting to social media.
Rule 5.6 exactly states:
“The engagement of marketing personnel, marketing officials, marketing companies or the engagement into some sort of marketing or promotional campaign or activity by the artists to promote themselves, the song, their participation, or in some way to influence the public vote is strictly prohibited. The publication of any social media post, promotion material, interviews or media presence/exposure from the announcement of the quarter finalist’s onwards is also strictly prohibited. Any breach of this clause will lead to automatic disqualification”
Aidan came second in MESC 2022 with this song “Ritmu” which was very loved from many Eurofans.
