She was singer, actress and variety show artist. Her variety show career spanned from 1943 into the 1970s, while her singing career trailed away at the end of the 1960s.

Popular web portal www.di-ve.com, has just reported that Dr. Isabelle Gatt has resigned from the Malta Eurosong team with immediate effect. The reason given for this resignation is personal work commitments that Dr. Gatt has. One would like to note that Dr. Gatt has been part of the advisory team since 2008, which coincides with the year PBS took over Malta's participation at the Eurovision Song Contest. This resignation is rather a surprise bearing in mind that Thea Garrett shall leave our shores around mid-May to represent Malta in this year's Eurovision Song Contest which will be held in Oslo on the 25th, 27th and 29th of May. Escflashmalta.com will try to contact the Head of Delegation Joe Dimech to see whether he would like to pass on a statement on the issue, and see whether Dr. Gatt will be replaced in such a crucial stage of the competition.

Marc Calleja Bayliss has spoken to the duo who will be representing Romania in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest. This is what they had to tell us whilst wishing everyone a pleasant couple of weeks with regards to what will be coming up soon. This years' Romanian selection was quite complicated for fans to understand because despite the fact that it was open to everyone, the broadcaster namely TVR heard the submitted entries and also decided which songs were good and had unsuitable singers. Do you think that this kind of system worked in the organization of the selection in your opinions? I think this is a smart decision for TVR because this makes the whole process more efficient. First of all, the decision is favorable to the young composers who can't afford to have an experimented artist singing their song, because we all know that a good song can…
