The Silent Majority is a group of players who vote and play in the contest but don't publicly give out their opinions about the songs. If an entry gets praise by everyone giving their opinions about the songs, and the entry still falls before the final, the silent majority is usually blamed. The silent majority is also responsible if an entry which is loathed by the reviewers has done (relatively) well, this can lead to phrases such as 'WHAT?! MALTA?!'.
