Since 2010, Romania has been absent from the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, owing to lack of interest and an extremely disappointing last place finish back in 2009 with the track 'Ai Puterea în Mâna Ta' sung by Ioana Bianca Anuta. In a reply to an email sent to Bianca Dinescu of TVR, a representative of the public broadcaster in Romania, the chances of participation have been significantly downplayed.

"As the situation lays, I don’t think there are chances to participate". Bianca believes that there might be better news for 2015 though. Romania was one of the first countries to partake in the international competition, with their seven consecutive participations commencing in 2003 and coming to an end in 2009. During their seven year stint, their best result was a fourth place finish in 2004 with the track 'Îți Mulțumesc' performed by Noni Ene. Further to that though, they managed a top eight result on another two occasions, in 2005 and 2006, respectively.

It seems that the European Broadcasting Union and the Public Broadcasting Services are working extremely well together to ensure that this year's edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest is successful considering that 12 countries have already confirmed participation.

This is the same number of countries which had participated in the 2013 edition which took place in Kiev, Ukraine although it seems that a couple of more participating nation will be either making their return or their debut according to circulating rumours. Apart from Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Russia, Sweden, The Netherlands, and Ukraine who all took part in the 2013 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, there will also be the debut of Italy and Montenegro, as well as the return of Cyprus and Serbia.

Gaia Cauchi, a student of La Voix Academy and a client of Ironic PR & Artist Management was the winner of the 2013 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest with "The Start", a song which she co-wrote with Elton Zarb, Gillian Attard and Matt Mercieca. Fast forward a couple of months, and Malta will be using the same formula as Federica Falzon who holds the same credentials will be representing the country with a song written by the same aforementioned trio. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about the 2014 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

RTCG, the public broadcaster of Montenegro, responsible for the nation's participation in events organised by the European Broadcasting Union have confirmed their debut in this year's edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest taking place in Malta. This will be the second country to mark it's debut in the event, following in the footsteps of Italy, whose representative broadcaster, RAI Gulp, confirmed participation a couple of days back.

At this moment in time, Montenegro has not divulged the manner in which the act will be chosen but it is highly likely that they will follow their recent internal selection success used during the senior edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, where Sergej Cetkovic and his entry "Moj Svijet" got the Balkan nation through to the final for the very first time.

NERIT, the public broadcaster responsible for the participation of Greece at events organised by the European Broadcasting Union was thought to be inches away from confirming participation in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, but unfortunately, this was not the case as the Hellenic nation will not be returning in 2014.

The confirmation of Cyprus last week should have been the final bargaining point for Greece but as the new broadcaster continues to search for financial support, it was always going to be difficult for a competition return, especially with rumours of support for the senior edition of the Eurovision Song Contest also waning. At this point in time, 9 countries are to take part in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014, with a Big Five country, presumably Italy making their debut.

"The Start", co-written by Gillian Attard, Elton Zarb, Matthew Mercieca and Gaia Cauchi, with the latter also being the vocalist, gave Malta a renewed hope of success in international music competitions. As a result of this success, the Public Broadcasting Services sent in a formal bid to host the 2014 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

Eventually, the paperwork was signed and Malta became host nation, a role which is being taken extremely seriously. The Public Broadcasting Services is recruiting a series of volunteers in various areas of the production team in order to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Amongst the available roles, one would find; Delegate Hosts, Technical Persons proficient in basic networking, Guest Relations - Front Office Services, Multi language speaking hosts, Communication and Public Relations Assistants and Photo & Video editing personnel.

It is worth keeping in mind that students with foreign language skills, as well as a background of Malta, in terms of history and geography will be considered assets. The registration could be done through the official website of the Public Broadcasting Services by no later than Sunday 20th July 2014. Another note is that volunteers need to be 18 years and over in order to be eligible, whilst making themselves available on a full time basis between the 8th and 16th November 2014.

CyBC, the public broadcaster responsible for the participation of Cyprus in events organised by the European Broadcasting Union is proud to confirm it's return to both the senior and the junior editions of the Eurovision Song Contest following some time off due to financial constraints which hit most of the European broadcasters in the past couple of years.

It is worth keeping in mind that the Mediterranean Island has not troubled the leader board in any of the two events yet achieving a top five placing recorded in the senior edition on no less than three occasions, the most recent being back in 2004 with Lisa Andreas and her stunning performance of "Stronger Every Minute". Rumour has it that Cyprus and CyBC are in talks with a renowned artist with strong connections to the Eurovision Song Contest and who is currently running a top-tier vocal academy in the small participating nation.

In just a couple of months, Malta will be hosting this year's edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest following Gaia Cauchi's triumph with "The Start", a song which she co-wrote with Elton Zarb, Matt Mercieca and Gillian Attard. As soon as victory was assured, the Public Broadcasting Services entered into talks with the European Broadcasting Union to hold the event in the Mediterranean Island, with the general public buzzing over the stupendous showing.

It seems that participating countries for the show are on the increase and following the supposed debut of Iceland, it seems that Italy will also be putting in their initial showing, according to eurofestivalnews.com, the most accurate Italian news source. This comes to fruition following a recent general assembly organised by the European Broadcasting Union in Naples. Rumour has it, that Italy will be following in Malta and San Marino's footsteps in sending an artist from the television programme "Ti Lascio Una Canzone" following the choices of Michele Perniola for San Marino in 2013 and Federica Falzon for Malta in 2014.

Both managed to triumph in the show. In Malta, the public is buzzing about the possibility of Federica competing against Vincenzo Carni who seems to be first on the list of possible entrants. It is worth noting that Federica and Vincenzo won this year's edition of "Ti Lascio Una Canzone" as a duet.

In just a couple of months, Malta will be playing host to this year's edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest having been chosen by the European Broadcasting Union following their victory with "The Start" co-written by Gillian Attard, Elton Zarb, Matthew Mercieca and Gaia Cauchi, the latter also responsible for the superb vocals.

With the Steering Committee travelling to Malta twice, first time round to analyse the potential venues and second time round to make some announcements, as well as see what vision the Public Broadcasting Services has for the event, the European Broadcasting Union has officially confirmed the Malta Shipbuilding in Marsa as the host venue. Just ten minutes away from Valletta, and with an estimated 4500 capacity, the Malta Shipbuilding "is a challenge" but will provide a "wonderful setting for Junior Eurovision" according to Anja Zegwaars of AVROTROS in The Netherlands.

The Malta Shipbuilding in Marsa has already played host to an event in recent months with the Music & Steel Festival featuring acts such as; Red Electrick, Tribali, The Rifffs and Airport Impressions amongst others. The acoustics in the venue are astonishing and will provide a fantastic setup for what should prove to be a great show.

Earlier this year, Federica Falzon was revealed to be the first artist for the 2014 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest taking place in Malta, but following a national final which took place a couple of days ago, the first entry was also selected. "Du är Inte Ensam" is the track that won the hearts of the professional jury during Lilla Melodifestivalen with vocals provided by 14-year old, Julia Kedhammar.

It has become somewhat of a tradition for Sweden to be the first country to select their entry and act for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Julia won the right to represent Sweden, having been 1 of 8 participants in the national final, with ages ranging between 11 and 15, respectively. "Du är Inte Ensam" is a pop/rock track, with slight hints of Israel's "Same Heart" during the beginning. We remind you that the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014 is taking place in Malta.
