    Now listen – PBS shouldn’t let adults hold 100% credit in writing Maltese Junior Eurovision entries anymore. Whoever wins Malta’s national final next month should be involved in songwriting give the fact that JESC is a song contest for children aged 9 to 14, and these children are the stars of the show.
