Malta: PBS Yet to Reveal Spokesperson and CommentatorWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
The Public Broadcasting Services shows all of the respective shows in the lead up to the Eurovision Song Contest including the semi-final in which Malta would not be competing in and that is to add to the overall value of entertainment whilst surrounded by family. The preparations for such shows is normally aided through a live commentary which in recent years has been conducted by two personnel, the first of which is none other than actress, producer and host Eileen Montesin and the second of which being the multiple national final host, Valerie Vella whose years of experience have always proven an asset. We are now in a position to exclusively reveal that neither of the females has been given the nod by the broadcaster this time round despite their years of experience.
It is to be noted that both of them has left the Public Broadcasting Services in recent weeks and months noting that Eileen Montesin is currently preparing to host another edition of the popular talent show Don't Stop Me Now whilst just finished wrapping up the first season of the series Deja Vu with Media.Link Communications and their television broadcaster; NET In the meantime, Valerie has recently undertook a role on the show Ilsien In-Nisa through another private station in the form of ONE. We are also proud to exclusively reveal that Valerie Vella will be reviewing the tracks competing directly in the final meaning Azerbaijan, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and United Kingdom as part of the Critics' Choice feature initiated earlier this year through escflashmalta.com. The last time that neither of the ladies was in the commentator booth was in 2007 when Antonia Micallef, now a newscaster took on the role yet she did not manage to bring about any of the enthusiasm of the event as was astonishingly dull presenting the acts during the evening.
There have been initial rumours that the position of commentator might be given to none other than Elaine Saliba, the female host of this years' Malta Eurovision Song Contest but we would like to hear your opinion on any possibility. Apart from the question of the commentator, there is also the question of the spokesperson and rumours keep circulating that this position will be give to Ylenia Vella as a sort of apology issued by the broadcaster. This could be an interesting jolt to her career nevertheless, gaining worldwide exposure during an extremely interesting part of the show. The year before representing Sweden, Eric Saade was the one to give the votes on behalf of the nation gaining recognition as the individual with the pretty face. We will be vying to keep you posted on all of the latest happenings as soon as they become available so stay tuned.
