Vladislav Yakolev, the Executive Supervisor of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, is currently visting the Headquarters of the Public Broadcasting Services as early details for next years' international showcase are surely being set with Anton Attard, Chief Executive Officer and Tonio Portughese, Chairman. This news does not come as a surprise after the national broadcaster went on record stating that they are willing to host the event, especially following Gaia Cauchi's victory with The Start, which she co-wrote with Matt Mercieca, Elton Zarb and Gillian Attard.

Next years' edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, co-produced by the European Broadcasting Union and the Public Broadcasting Services will most likely include a couple of more participants with interest beckoning from countries such as Hungary, and Ireland. The details are raw and unconfirmed by the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre seems to be the most likely venue to host the event, especially due to the inclusion of a Euroclub and a Press Centre. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com in the coming weeks and months and we unravel the event in greater detail.

Gaia Cauchi from Malta, winner of this years’ edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest with The Start co-written alongside Matthew Mercieca, Elton Zarb and Gillian Attard is set to be conferred the highest honour of the nation in an upcoming ceremony taking place on the 13th December. The Ġieħ ir-Repubblika  is only given to the most distinct persons in the country, and one other artist who has also been awarded with such an honour was Ira Losco, following her near success at the senior event of the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2002.

Malta's first success at any events organised by the European Broadcasting Union came at the hands of Gaia and this was witnessed by an astonishing homecoming at the Malta International Airport. The victory was somewhat unexpected but following such a performance, many had noted The Start on behalf of Malta to be a favourite. Anton Attard, Chief Executive Officer of the Public Broadcasting Services, has confirmed that discussions with the European Broadcasting Union have begun in order to host the upcoming edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Gaia Cauchi is set to become the youngest recipient of the Ġieħ ir-Repubblika Award but she will not be the only one with Elton Zarb, Matthew Mercieca and Gillian Attard also being nominated for the prestigious accolade. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.

JESC '14: PBS and EBU Discuss Hosting Duties

escflashmalta.com has been in close contact to sources within the European Broadcasting Union who have told us that unofficially, everything is ready for Malta to host the 2014 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest but that the legal paperwork is still to be finalised with an official announcement expected in the next couple of weeks. The Public Broadcasting Services had already shown interest in hosting the event prior to the eventuality of the competition and with individuals such as Anton Attard as Chief Executive Officer and Tonio Portughese as Chairman, one could be sure of an exceptional show.

Malta's success at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest was unexpected especially due to the fact that the previous best result was a fourth place finish with the track Junior Swing performed by 89.7 Bay DJ, Daniel Testa who is also a semi-finalist at the 2014 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest. Gaia Cauchi and the song she helped co-write, The Start were the winners of this years' edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contested hosted by Zlata and Timur in the city of Kiev, Ukraine. The eastern country was the winner last year, and the European Broadcasting Union offered Malta the opportunity to host next year. Specifics needs to be discussed but it seems that the Public Broadcasting Services will definitely take on the role of host and show Europe, that we are indeed ready to host a major event.

For all those who wish to welcome Gaia Cauchi back home tomorrow evening, make sure to visit the Malta International Airport at around 22:00 CET. She will be accompanied by the rest of the delegation; Anton Attard, Anna Dalli, Tonio Portughese, Daniel d'Anastasi, Matt Mercieca, Elton Zarb and Gillian Attard. escflashmalta.com will try to speak to Gaia Cauchi in the next couple of weeks, following her astonishing success. We wish all of the team and the delegation, the very best of luck and welcome the decision taken by the Public Broadcasting Services to host this prestigious event. All of the team will be ready to cover the event in the best possible way.
