In just a couple of days, Spain will select their entry for the upcoming edition of the Eurovision Song Contest with five (5) acts putting their entries forward for judgement by the general public and a professional panel of judges. RTVE, the public broadcaster decided to hold a national selection after talks with a number of artists proved to be futile, and led to no concrete conclusion. Whilst the line-up features relatively known performers, the songs are very much potential hits, and this has been seen in the iTunes Downloads where two (2) of the five (5) tracks have peaked in the top five (5), based on pre-release sales.

At last years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, Spain could only obtain five (5) points for what was an extremely below par performance of Contigo Hasta El Final by El Sueno de Morfeo, just months after having obtained tenth place at the event with the wonderful Quedate Conmigo performed by Latin Grammy Award nominee, Pastora Soler. This years' line-up features a mixture of genres, and talent but should not disappoint when it comes to the final result. Ruth Lorenzo, Brequette, La Dama, Jorge Gonzalez and Raul will put on a show to remember on Saturday kicking off at 22:00 CET. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all the latest news.

Amongst the finalists in this years’ national selection, the first one since 2011, there is none other than Ruth Lorenzo, a former X Factor finalist in the United Kingdom known for her stunning rendition of Purple Rain, as well as former selection runner-up Raul.

Gaia Cauchi, Malta's representative at the 2013 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest following an internal selection by the Public Broadcasting Services will be joined by another eleven artists at the event following confirmation that twelve (12) countries will participate within the annual competition. The last time that Malta took part was back in 2010 when Nicole Azzopardi had honoured the nation with her entry Knock Knock!….Boom! Boom! which managed just under forty points to finish in a penultimate position.

Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Netherlands, Russia, Sweden and Ukraine are returning countries from last years' edition of the international spectacle whilst Malta and the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia are returning following an extended break. It is expected that Israel will build on last years' participation as the eleventh country with the possibility of another returning country in the form of Spain or a debut nation such as San Marino putting their hat into the ring. On Monday, the Steering Group of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest met in Kiev, Ukraine in order to discuss the way forward with regards to the event. 

Chairperson Ekaterina Orlova stated that 'their attention to detail is incredible' adding that they 'have managed to combine the element of fun and high-tech wizardry'. A  number of ideas have also been actualised including the stage design, the logo, the fact that the top three will all receive prizes, rehearsal schedules, running order plans as well as the programme which the artists will undertake to tour the country accordingly. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com as we follow the Junior Eurovision Song Contest closely following Malta's return to the competition.

On the 7th August, Monica Naranjo took to social networking website, Twitter in order to speak of the recent comments made by Chenoa in the local music tabloids. She stated that representing Spain at the Eurovision Song Contest is not a part of her career plans despite appreciating what the former backing vocalist had to say with regards to the genre and vocals. Monica Naranjo is viewed as a true star having been successful in both Spain and Mexico with her studio albums peaking at number #1 and achieving platinum status on more than one occasion.

Monica is viewed by fans of the Eurovision Song Contest as their most desired participant for several years according to opinion polls but nevertheless, the media picked up on the matter when Chenoa, a former finalist on the talent show, Operacion Triunfo accepted to represent the country on her own terms, which include her selecting the track. In the same interview which was publicised all over the country, it was denoted that the ultimate artist to represent the nation would definitely be Monica whose vocals would rival those of Pastora Soler and achieve that type of success. TVE, the broadcaster has been quiet over the recent media frenzy but make sure to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.

In 2002, Operación Triunfo gave birth to a number of successful vocal artists, including none other than David Bisbal and Chenoa who have seemingly had the most hits following their participation. The female artist has been on top of the representative wishlist by fans for several years and it seems that the timing might just be right with Chenoa publicly stating that she would love to take one for the team and represent her nation at the international event if she chooses the song herself. She is not one to support a public selection but will nevertheless pick a song which could be a hit in the charts and at the event, in similar fashion to Quedate Conmigo performed by Pastora Soler in 2012.

Following the release of Como Un Fantasma in 2011, Chenoa took a break from the music industry and went back to the roots of her career, something which is very much seen within her latest single release Quinta Dimension or Life's an Equation with both versions published through her Vevo account. Chenoa's studio collections have been pretty successful with her worst charting position being number #6 in 2005 with Nada es Igual which still went Platinum. Her last studio album Como Un Fantasma peaked at number #1 in 2011, making it her second release to peak at the top spot. In the meantime, her most successful single was definitely Todo Irá Bien which peaked at the top spot in no less than four countries; Costa Rica, Ecuador, Puerto Rico and Peru. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.

Quédate Conmigo, co-written by Thomas G:son, Tony Sánchez-Ohlsson and Erik Bernholm with vocals provided by Pastora Soler finished in tenth place at the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest held in Baku, Azerbaijan. Pastora Soler took up the challenge of representing Spain during a period when unfortunately the results were not so forthcoming but with a stunning vocal and a strong entry, a result was achieved. Spain achieved another disapproval note this year as Contigo Hasta El Final performed by El Sueño de Morfeo only mustered eight (8) points to finish in the penultimate spot.

Pastora Soler was already a high profile artist in Spain prior to the Eurovision Song Contest but it seems that she has gained substantial popularity beyond as well now, having the opportunity to perform in the Balkan countries where her vocals have been appreciated. Following her recent role as a judge on the show El Número Uno, she is busy in the studio working on her latest studio album entitled Conóceme. A single preceding the release of the album entitled Te Despertaré has just garnered an official release date. escflashmalta.com would like to congratulate Pastora Soler on the wonderful track and urge the people to stay tuned for all of the latest news as soon as it becomes available.
