There have been a number of questions which have been seemingly addressed in the past couple of hours with the withdrawal of Saska Hunt and her entry Dress Rehearsal being replaced by Overrated performed by Marilena Gauci. It is important to note that both entries are composed by Philip Vella and penned by Gerard James Borg and therefore, the songwriters had to be relieved to know that they were still not going to miss an entry in the competition. In the past couple of hours, it seems that the preparations for the 2013 Malta Eurovision Song Contest have continued due to the fact that whilst in Albania, the Public Broadcasting Services Chairman, Joseph Mizzi invited the Albanian representatives at the upcoming international showcase to the local selection show. It is unknown whether they have accepted or not at this stage although it could be the first of a number of guests.  In the past, reciprocity of jury and guests between countries took place quite freely.

The Festivali I Kenges took place last night and just finished beyond the stroke of midnight. The song quality seems to have improved over time but nevertheless, the mixed reactions over the winning entry are somewhat very apparent. The public in Albania have made their opinion known though and they are very happy about the choice of entry with their second favourite also finishing in second place noting that the winners were Adrian Lulgjuraj & Bledar Sejkowith with the track Identitet with the first runner-up being the song Love performed by the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest representative; Anjeza Shanini. Details about the Malta Eurovision Song Contest are being released in small doses at the moment noting that preparations are taking place at a timely pace. The hosts along with the guests have not been revealed but it is widely expected that the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest representative from Malta; Kurt Calleja will be present to perform his entry along with a number of other hits.
