The Public Broadcasting Services is showing sheer professionalism in the handling of the 2013 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest working around the timings in order to have everything in order by the time that the competition eventually takes place. The day following the announcement of the qualifiers, all of the participants were invited to a meeting in which they were told about how the competition will eventually evolve, in a step by step manner. Apart from the announcement that the preview videos will be shot this Saturday during most of the day following confirmations made by qualifiers  Kevin Borg and Franklin Calleja, we are in a position to exclusively reveal the current outcome of the initial draw noting that the broadcasting house has drawn the acts that will open and close the showcase whilst noting that they will be selecting the rest of the draw based on the genres of the tracks in order to have a variety during the evening.

It has been brought to our attention and confirmed by multiple sources that opening the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2013 semi-final will be none other than former runner-up; Richard Edwards with the track Fall Like Rome co-written between Philip Vella, Magnus Kaxe and Gerard James Borg whilst the closing act will be none other than newcomer; Davinia Pace with the song Betrayed composed by Elton Zarb and penned by Muxu. It is quite ideal to see two different types of entries opening and closing the showcase with Richard presenting an anthemic sort of ballad whilst Davinia performing what has been described as a soul track. The Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2013 is being staged in a yet unnamed venue on the 1st and the 2nd February 2013 with the Malta Music Awards following on the following day. This news has been officially confirmed by Anton Attard, the mastermind behind the current format of the selection procedure, also the Head of Delegation for the country and the Chief Executive Officer at the Public Broadcasting Services. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news as soon as it becomes available.
