JESC 2018: A Sit Down with Malta's Ela

By
Whilst the temperature back in Malta sits at a balmy 22 degrees, in Minsk, the capital of Belarus, it's an icy -5. But what's an even bigger contrast is that while most twelve year olds are back at home, going to school and spending time with their friends - Ela Mangion is gearing up to perform in front of the biggest audience of her life at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Having performed in countries from Italy to Lithuania and Russia, the scenario isn't that strange to Ela. But this event, the little sister (or brother) of the adult contest…
#TeamMalta ran into the press conference, moderated by Denis Dudinsky in positive spirits, taking questions from local and international media outlets. Ela was bursting with energy throughout, even singing a beautiful rendition of Viva Malta, with her father providing backing vocals to the amusement to all those present. Asked why she’s not performing in Maltese at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Ela said that while she greatly enjoys singing in the language, she wanted the message of the song to reach a wider audience, hence why the choice of English. In a series of questions put forward by the press…
Earlier this afternoon, 12-year old Ela took to the stage at the Minsk Arena in Belarus and gave a brilliant account of herself, showing her distinctive vocal range and commanding stage presence. It is worth pointing out that she is accompanied by 4 dancers on stage; 3 girls and 1 boy who add that extra something to what is already a very solid presentation. Ela is singing Marchin’ On, which she co-wrote with lyricist Emil Calleja Bayliss and composer Cyprian Cassar. She speaks about how people should face their problems head on, and never look back. It is a very…
12-year-old singer/songwriter Ela will represent Malta in the next edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest held in Minsk, Belarus with the uplifting original number Marchin’ On, composed by Cyprian Cassar and penned by Emil Calleja Bayliss. Ela was chosen to represent Malta following her triumph at the Malta Junior Eurovision Song Contest on the 8th September whereby a panel of professional judges and the general public each had a 50% share in deciding the winner from a possible 16 competing entries. It was the first time since 2010 that a national final featuring original songs took place. On that…
Making a surprise return for 2018, Malta’s national selection this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest also includes the addition of original songs - for the first time in eight years. Budding artists aged between 8 and 14 from the island were invited to submit their original compositions earlier in the summer, whilst PBS enlisted the help of an expert jury to shortlist sixteen of them for a live show. The national selection will take to our screens this Saturday (8th September) at 16:30 on TVM and TVM HD, live from the Where’s Everybody’s studios in Qormi. The host will be…
Since their return to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Malta has posted a series of successful results, including two victories in 2013 and 2015 and top ten results in each of the other years. Therefore, it comes as no secret that they have just confirmed participation for the 2018 edition of the international music competition aimed at promoting the incredible talent of teenagers. What’s surprising is that the method of selecting the song, and the singer this time round will be similar to the Malta Eurovision Song Contest in that the prospective participants will have to enter original songs into…
er the past week, the Maltese team in Tbilisi have been on a full schedule of rehearsals, excursions and media activity before the live show on Sunday. As is the case with all of the sixteen participating countries at Junior Eurovision, Malta's participant Gianluca Cilia took to the stage for two rehearsals earlier in the week, followed by two dress rehearsals - one of which was watched by the juries across Europe, counting for 50% of the final vote. 10 year old Gianluca is accompanied on stage by dancers Daya, Desmea, Yana, Jasmin and Annika - who are a prominent…
