The preparations for the 2012 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest are currently ongoing as the first day of rehearsals at the venue kicked off earlier today with the hope of getting through each and every aspect of the twenty-four (24) performances. This is the very first time that the Public Broadcasting Services has banned all respective local and international media from the run-up to the show due to the fact that some artists have a hard time handling constructive criticism and points which would ultimately help in improvement. There has been a lot of furor in the past couple of days but nevertheless, the decision stands and all rehearsals are closed including the Thursday evening dress rehearsal. We will be trying to keep you posted on the happenings as from our sources though.

You will find the complete rehearsal schedule for the first day below and we will be keeping you posted with all the latest happenings from the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre in Ta' Qali. Once more, remember that there will be no live reporting this year from the rehearsals as they are closed to all local and foreign media. We will be running a live report of the semi-final and the final though during the weekend so make sure to visit to follow that. As you can easily note, today each act has been given twenty five (25) minutes of rehearsal in order to polish off what they have been doing for quite some time. Tomorrow, the clip for the recap will also be taken up and therefore have to be in tip top shape because the people will view that clip when deciding who to vote for.

Update: We have just received word from our sources at the venue that the atmosphere is pretty calm at the moment. The stage is somewhat extremely large and is being enhances through large screens as was the case last year. These screens are creating a beautiful element on the stage. Rehearsals are on time for the very first time in a while as all technical issues seem to have been well sorted out. Camera shots are good but still need alterations it seems therefore, one will hope that all is right for tomorrow. They are still not even mid-way through the rehearsals as we hit the One O'Clock mark. The artists are also very happy with the sound in the venue as it is very much close to the recorded versions of the track. ESCflashmalta was on hand at the site of the venue listening to four songs in row starting with Jessica Muscat and finishing with Gianni and the sound is quite amazing. There seemed to be only very minor issues but nevertheless, an outstanding production.
