We saw the first batch of hopefuls audition and there were definitely some familiar faces for Eurovision or MESC fans - AIDAN & Danica Muscat both successfully auditioned and made it through. This weeks episode also saw a lot of talent - including some more MESC contestants! Lets find out who made it to Bootcamp!
