The Public Broadcasting Services is currently preparing the team which they will be sending to Baku, Azerbaijan for the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest where Kurt Calleja and his song This Is The Night are set to take to the stage during the second semi-final amongst a flurry of nations who seem to have their participation favoured by the critics including Sweden and Serbia amongst others. It is mostly known that the team in itself will include the main performer, the band, the backing vocal, the Head of Delegation being Anton Attard, the Assistant Head of Delegation normally Anna Dalli and then the Head of Press Daniel D'Anastasi. One member who is definitely not going to Azerbaijan according to exclusive sources is the commentator who this year will be none other than Elaine Saliba.

Looking back through the years, Elaine Saliba started through the means of production with Where's Everybody before moving onto acting, landing a leading role on a television series that aired on Television Malta entitled Għada Jisbaħ Wkoll (Tomorrow Dawns As Well) but from then onwards, she grew in confidence, strength and experience going onto present and host the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza last year alongside veteran Charles Saliba aired on NET Television and then also taking up a programme entitled Kwiżż (Quiz) on the same station. Following her successful stint, she was asked by the Public Broadcasting Services to host the Malta Eurovision Song Contest alongside Television Malta presented and former host of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, Ronald Briffa creating controversy in the first night over a choice of outfit but shining in the final in a sleek blue floor length gown. She did a great job and critics were pleased with the outcome of the competition in terms of hosting duties therefore it comes to no surprise that the likes of Antonia Micallef, Eileen Montesin and Valerie Vella have been dismissed owing to various reasons. It seems that Elaine is quickly becoming a golden girl at the Public Broadcasting Services for her talent, charm and beautiful smile. We would like to wish her luck as she commentates during both the semi-final stages and the final from the Public Broadcasting Services Headquarters in Gwardamangia.
