It has really been a day to remember for the local media noting that there has been a lot of speculation over the acts who will be submitting into the 2013 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest following the announcements of Malta Music Awards and Bay Music Awards nominee Thomas Hedley and the duet featuring Don't Stop Me Now winner; Franklin Calleja and former Eurovision Song Contest representative; Ludwig Galea. The names keep on being revealed and we are now also in a position to reveal that former Malta Song for Europe contestant and 2008 Swedish Idol winner; Kevin Borg will ultimately submit a track in the competition and therefore trying to represent his home country in his adopted nation which has treated him extremely well in these past couple of years. 

Kevin Borg first entered the Malta Song for Europe back in 2006 with the track You're My Dream finishing in eighth place before returning the following year with the song Wherever, this time finishing in fourth place. The songwriters behind the track were none other than Jason Paul Cassar and penned by Sunny Aquilina respectively. In 2008, Kevin left the Maltese Islands for the Scandinavian country of Sweden,  entering the Idol competition which has grown fond of supporting acts from outside the country. He managed to overcome all of the obstacles and finished as the winner thus earning himself a record deal with Sony Music. His debut album entitled The Beginning peaked at number #3 in the charts and certified Gold whilst his first two singles bearing the name With Every Bit of Me and Streetlights both managed top ten positions at number #1 and #10 respectively. His most recent single was the track Unstoppable with all proceeds supporting the Breast Cancer Foundation and released through EMI Music.

In an exclusive phone call with earlier this evening, Kevin Borg officially confirmed the news of his submission saying that this is the right time to try and return to honour his home country in the esteemed music event which is known to unite the country. He did not wish to reveal anything about the track in itself but I am sure that many people have already put Kevin Borg as the front runner to represent the country at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest which will be taking place in Malmo, Sweden. Surely, the fact that the Scandinavian nation is hosting the event is quite a plus because Kevin would definitely get a lot of exposure. The editorial board at this portal would like to wish Kevin Borg and his team the very best of luck as they submit into the competition. Stay tuned to for all of the latest news about the 2013 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest as soon as it takes place.
