Tonight! An evening to remember, because following an absence of eleven (11) years, the International Festival of Maltese Song is set to take place at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta.  The event, which is set to be hosted by Debbie Scerri, Renato, Mary Rose Mallia, Lawrence Gray and Alfred Zammit is set to be broadcast live to audiences across the country through Television Malta and Television Malta 2. The International Festival of Maltese Song is technically, the second biggest competition on the Maltese Islands, following to the Malta Eurovision Song Contest and therefore, it goes without saying that the Public Broadcasting Services in line with the organising committee is pulling out all the stops for a show stopping event. had the opportunity to attend a couple of rehearsals and could honestly be extremely positive towards the outcome of the event on television this evening with the shots, and the staging all in place for a wonderful extravaganza. The venue, which has played host to several past editions of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, the last of which was back in 2011, won by Glen Vella and his entry One Life composed by Paul Giordimaina to the lyrics of Fleur Balzan has an intimate feel with brilliant acoustics. For local and foreign fans of the Eurovision Song Contest, the event will surely be pleasant to watch considering that former representatives; Miriam Christine (1996), Renato (1975), Georgina Abela (1991), Debbie Scerri (1997), Olivia Lewis (2007) and Aleksandra & Konstantin (Belarus 2004) will be out and about.
