(0 votes)

The 2012 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest will commence this evening through a semi-final stage which will be featuring a total of twenty four entries, all of which fall under a clear categorical genre be it pop, dance, ballad, uptempo, mid-tempo and so forth. The variety might be existent even within the same style. Eight of the entries will be eliminated this evening in a star studded showcase which is set to be hosted by renowned personalities Elaine Saliba and Ronald Briffa, both of whom have ample experience as hosts on television and stage. We have not been able to know how the show is looking and therefore, you will all be surprised this evening at the remarkable staging of this years' event with the Public Broadcasting Services accentuating simplicity in favour of high tech equipment.

Also being present with a number of backstage titbits this evening will be Frank Zammit; actor, producer, director, television and radio presenter to keep the people update on each and  every detail. The show will be steamed through the main television outlet for the Public Broadcasting Services being Television Malta just after the news with a pre-requisite time of 20:30 CET although it might be slightly later. For any of our international readers who would like to view the semi-final, make sure to visit the live streaming outlet on DI-VE. The division of the tracks is quite straightforward tonight with six songs before each respective break where a recap is introduced. The postcards also seem simple yet they get the message across from what we can make out expecting promotional messages in each and every one of them.
