JESC 2011: Malta's Withdrawal to be Confirmed Soon

Rate this item
(0 votes)

The Junior Eurovision Song Contest has been an event which has received a number of positive and negative reviews over the years started with a lot of promise in the beginning but lacking in backing over the past couple of years. Malta has participated in every edition organised thus far but it seems that after months of debacles, the Public Broadcasting Services has reached a decision not to take part in this years' edition of the event.

Over the past couple of months, the people have been somewhat very skeptical about the actual participation but then again, the fact that the children were getting an opportunity to represent their nation abroad meant quite a lot but it has to be noted that some children have been performing with a lot of pressure from their parents and therefore the love of singing might get lost along the way if the showcase is seen only as a competition. Over the years, the results have been mixed with Malta reaching very good results in 2003 thanks to Sarah Harrison and her song 'Like a Star' reaching seventh place, in 2008 thanks to Daniel Testa whose 'Junior Swing' managed to peak at fourth place making it the best placing Malta would go onto achieve and also 2009 with Francesca & Mikaela finishing in eight place thanks to 'Double Trouble'. In the meantime, the other results are not really too home to write about but this showcase will be missed. We will completely analyze our withdrawal and the result of our current poll when the confirmation is ensured!
