This years' edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest is taking place in less than a month and the preparations on behalf of the Public Broadcasting Services are currently well underway noting that the twenty-four semi-finalists are being interviewed and promoted on several television and radio programmes but nevertheless, one question is yet to be answered and that seems to regard the hosting duties. As one could denote from the picture below, we are proud to exclusively reveal that this year the station has decided to call upon Gordon Bonello and Elaine Saliba as hosts for the main stage with Rodney Gauci set to tackle on the backstage where a better insight to the excitement behind the scenes will be given. This news item has been confirmed to members of the editorial team of escflashmalta.com by multiple sources close to the Public Broadcasting Services and Television Malta.

Rodney Gauci will be adding to the sibling intrigue in the 2013 Malta Eurovision Song Contest being the brother of Marilena who entered the competition following the withdrawal of Saska Hunt. He is not a newcomer to music having been part of the group that represented Malta in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Lillehammer, Norway back in 2004. Since then, he has garnered esteem as a comical actor in the hit television series Deċeduti and more recently as Ġorġ on the daily talk show, TV Hemm. Moving onto the main hosts and beginning with the female; Elaine Saliba who returns as a host of the popular competition following her first experience last year in which she notably wore pink gloves which seemed to make everyone giggle at the sight of them despite chosen by a fashion consultant.

At the end of the semi-final she had removed them though and continued presenting the graceful manner she had begun. Her English was coherent and well executed and apart from mixing up some foreign names, she did a stunning job. Joining her as her main male co-host will be Gordon Bonello, who is predominantly a remarkable actor having had several roles in televised series but most notably also in Deċeduti and more recently as Pawlu on the daily talk show, TV Hemm. The trio will surely add to the entertainment of the evening which will as previously revealed by escflashmalta.com include a performance by the cast of D.R.E.A.M.S on the night of the final. The announcement of the hosts will officially be made by the Public Broadcasting Services very soon. Stay tuned for more exclusive news.
