This will be held at the Sir Temi Zammit Hall University of Malta, on the 24th of September. It was also pointed out that last Monday the 50 entries were tested for authenticity. The regulations of the Junior Eurovision Song Festival require that the singer, composer and author of any song be between 8 and 15 years of age. Ms Borg emphasised this point and asked parents to ensure that children are allowed to express themselves. She said that she was impressed by some children’s sincerity and appreciated their expression in music very much. She also stated that too much adult interference could only hinder the original purpose and spirit of this festival, which is to provide a platform for talented children to express themselves fairly. The level this year was highly satisfactory, this augurs well for the future she said.
