In 2014, Malta will be represented at the Eurovision Song Contest by two artists, one which will be the winner of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest and the other being Gaia Cauchi, winner of this years' edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest with the track The Start, co-written alongside Elton Zarb, Matt Mercieca and Gillian Attard. In a bid to revamp the competition, the European Broadcasting Union has made a number of alterations with one of them being that the winners of the Senior and Junior editions of the international showcase performing at each others' event. Emmelie de Forest, winner on behalf of Denmark with the song Only Teardrops earlier this year was a special guest last night.

It is somewhat surreal to see a local artist being invited by the European Broadcasting Union and the host broadcaster, DR to perform at the Eurovision Song Contest whilst it is more unbelievable that Malta has succeeded in winning the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. I had personally gone on record stating that we would win the event but the feeling of winning it is sinking in ever so slightly. Once more, as editor-in-chief of, I would like to congratulate the Maltese delegation on a well earned victory and also our special team of reviewers, including none other than Trevor Fenech, Daniel Testa and Sophie DeBattista. A notable mention goes out to our Head of Communications, Emil Calleja Bayliss for leading the report. Stay tuned to for all of the latest news.
