According to Newsbook.com.mt and escXtra, Gianluca, otherwise known as Malta's singing doctor, will be making a surprise return to the Malta Eurovision Song Contest. It has been just over a year since 'Tomorrow', a track co-written by Boris Cezek and Dean Muscat, finished in 8th place following a charming performance which set the stage alight.

escflashmalta.com is proud to confirm that the submission has taken place under the name 'L-Aħwa', in direct reference to his siblings noting that he does not intend to give it a second shot alone. The yet-unknown entry is written by a foreign team of songwriters, who have had ample success at the Eurovision Song Contest in recent years. The Public Broadcasting Services will reveal the names of the qualifiers and their entries through Xarabank on the 3rd October 2014. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news.

It has been a triumphant return for all of us at Radio International as audiences are soaring. One of the most respected artists at this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest was none other than Roberto Bellarosa (Belgium) and we had the opportunity to speak to him in Setubal as OGAE Portugal were hosting their annual convention. On the other hand, another interview which will be airing this evening is that with Cesar (Romania) who also took to the stage at this years' edition of the itnernational competition. Both speak of their respective experiences inter-related with either the Eurovision Song Contest or the preparations towards it within the national final. It is always a pleasure to see such fire and enthusiasm, recorded by artists who would be recognised in their home countries and sometimes even abroad. There is always an audience for former representatives.

Malta, represented by Gianluca and the track Tomorrow co-written by Dean Muscat and Boris Cezek saw the nation finish in eighth place, the first top ten result since 2005. The male artist has been featured on Radio International hosted by Juergen Boernig on several occasions and his songs will surely be requested once more. We would like to invite you to the weekly Ultimate Eurovision Experience. Apart from the means of FM Radio in the Netherlands on FM 106.8 and the audio stream from the studio via www.radiointernational.tv and on Digital Cable 781 & Cable 8.1Mhz in the Netherlands, the show will also be web-televised via the Radio International TV Channel from the studio and linking up the many international Eurovision fans and friends and play your requests and read your messages out on air.

On this weeks' episode of Radio International, the main focal interview is with Roberto Bellarosa, the male vocalist who represented Belgium at this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. His entry entitled Love Kills co-written by Jukka Immonen and Iain Farquharson was perceived as a surprise qualifier but has turned out to be a commercial success, entering charts in The Netherlands, Sweden, Germany and of course, Belgium. Shy of a top ten result, the song finished in twelfth place with seventy-one (71) points in total. Throughout the fortnight of the Eurovision Song Contest, Roberto grew in confidence and it seems that this is something which both the audience and the media realised as he performed during the semi-final stage of the competition. Other interviews to be aired during this weeks' episode; El Sueno de Morfeo (Spain 2013), Who See (Montenegro 2013), Moje 3 (Serbia 2013) and Stella Jones (Austria 1995). It is important to point out that the latter will be LIVE.

The Eurovision In Concert held a couple of weeks back within The Netherlands is known to be the premier dress rehearsal for the competing countires at the Eurovision Song Contest and the team of Radio International had the pleasure of speaking to all of the artists present, amongst them Gianluca who will represent Malta with the song Tomorrow co-written by Dean Muscat and Boris Cezek. We would like to invite you to the weekly Ultimate Eurovision Experience. Apart from the means of FM Radio in the Netherlands on FM 106.8 and the audio stream from the studio via www.radiointernational.tv and on Digital Cable 781 & Cable 8.1Mhz in the Netherlands, the show will also be web-televised via the Radio International TV Channel from the studio and linking up the many international Eurovision fans and friends and play your requests and read your messages out on air.

Denmark is the outright favourite in this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest with Emmelie de Forest and her entry Only Teardrops co-written by Lise Cable, Julia Fabrin Jakobsen and Thomas Stengaard. As a matter of fact, there is always a favourite which does well, along with another who will fall flat when it comes to the live performance. This is yet to be seen. In the meantime, Emmelie who is an extremely nice individual speaks to team of Radio International about competing in such a major showcase, her ancestral background and what she makes of the current situation in the polls, bookmakers and fan clubs. Moving onto another entry competing in the first semi-final, there is Zlata Ognevich who will be representing Ukraine with the song Gravity and according to the bookmakers, this currently ranks second behind Denmark. Zlata who has slight difficulty to speak in English is nevertheless a great performer and she speaks to Radio International and escflashmalta.com about her upcoming surprises, without revealing too much.

Apart from focusing on the first semi-final, it is always important to note that there is a second show and one which also includes a number of great songs including some fan favourites in the form of Greece whose entry Alcohol is Free performed by Koza Mostra featuring Agathonas has been setting the dancefloors alight. The team who have a great spirit speak about the song, the meaning behind it and what their expectations in Sweden during the Eurovision Song Contest are, especially considering that Greece has a reputation to uphold. One final interview from this semi-final is with PeR from Latvia whose entry bears the name Here We Go. It will be the opening act of the show but has not been receiving a lot of promotion as of late whilst somewhat destined to be another disappointment for the Baltic nation. The duo are great fun though and this adds to the spectacle of the Eurovision Song Contest.

The final nation in the spotlight for this evenings' programme will be Amandine Bourgeois who will be representing France with L'Enfer et Moi.
