In a surprise announcement, the Public Broadcasting Services will be returning to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest set to take place in Kiev, Ukraine on the 30th November. Gaia Cauci, a student of La Voix Academy under the tutelage of Gillian Attard was chosen internally by the broadcasting house after being on the receiving end of the International Achievement Award at this years' edition of the Malta Music Awards.

Nicole Azzopardi, an upcoming figure within the local music industry was the last artist to represent Malta at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest with her entry Knock Knock!… Boom! Boom! finishing in thirteenth (13th) place with just thirty-five (35) points. The announcement was a complete surprise considering that Malta has never resorted to an internal selection beforehand despite having been suggested by several individuals over the years. At the moment, La Voix Academy is enjoying huge success in foreign waters with two female vocalists currently part of this years' edition of Io Canto on Canale 5.

Gaia Cauchi was the winner of the illustrious Sanremo Junior where she had the opportunity to perform at the Ariston Theatre which also hosts the senior edition of Sanremo. There, she was accompanied by Maestro Paul Abela, who was also the composer of three entries at the Eurovision Song Contest; Could It Be (1991), In A Woman's Heart (1996) and Another Summer Night (2001). It is worth denoting that apart from winning several international competitions, Gaia Cauchi was also part of the programme Ti Lascia Una Canzone on RAI, where she had the opportunity to perform with the likes of Italian superstar, Alessandra Amoroso.

Gillian Attard is ecstatic and overjoyed at the astonishing success of her students owing everything all to hard work and sheer determination. Malta is officially the ninth country to confirm participation in the 2013 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest alongside Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Netherlands, Russia, Sweden and Ukraine. Stay tuned to for the latest news.
