Malta: Glen Vella Would Return to EurovisionWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
The Public Broadcasting Services had taken a risk by putting on the programme Xarabank many years back with Peppi Azzopardi at the helm of a Where's Everybody production and it did ultimately pay off noting that the coverage of the several subjects has people interested in seeing different issues being tackled live on television with experts on the respective fields. The Eurovision Song Contest or rather Malta's participation has been subject to a number of programmes throughout the year and during the actual weeks of the competition, there is a special focus and during this years' special broadcasting, former representative Glen Vella hinted that he would love another shot should the right opportunity come along for him to try again.
Glen Vella took to the stage on behalf of Malta during the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest with the song One Life where accompanied by the likes of Pamela, Isabelle and Angela, he failed to make it through to the final finishing in eleventh place within the semi-final, missing out by just one point. The extremely popular performer is one of the artists who has openly spoken about making a return alongside the likes of Chiara as mentioned in our exclusive interview. Participation in the Eurovision Song Contest comes to an artist because he would have dreamt of the opportunity growing up and when experiencing it, could be somewhat even more enticing. In recent months, Glen has been working extremely diligently on a number of new tracks noting that his latest mix is currently being played on 89.7 Bay Radio having also been a guest during the 2011 Malta Music Awards where he performed the track Lie.
