It’s hard to believe that the Public Broadcasting Services already has a line-up for the next edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with twenty entries set to compete for the ticket to represent Malta in Vienna, Austria. The national final, set to take place at the Marsa Shipbuilding on the 21st and 22nd November will be featuring a host of well known and upcoming stars, all vying to present their work, and garner the respect of the general public and the professional panel of judges.

During the course of the weekend, the Public Broadcasting Services will be recording the Official Music Videos which will accompany the entries over the next couple of weeks. According to the rules and regulations, all the qualified entries could have been re-mastered, without the additional change in melodic structure, as has been the case in recent years. This will ensure that the competition is of the highest quality and that everyone would have done their utmost to present the best possible product.

On the 3rd October, Xarabank will kick-off for another season, and it will do so with a bang, as the revelation of the acts through to the semi-final of the 2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest will be made public. Following the initial submission process, where the Public Broadcasting Services received 134 entries, a shortlist of 48 entries has now been published through the official website.

A quick glance at the list of shortlisted entries, one would realise that the list features a relative amount of established artists including; Glen Vella (ESC 11), Miriam Christine (ESC 96), Olivia Lewis (ESC 07), Lawrence Gray (MESC 98-99, 01-04, 09, 11), Gianluca (ESC 13), Trilogy (MESC 05-07, 09), Daniel Testa (JESC 08), Chris Grech (MESC 13-14), Jessika (MESC 08, 11-14), Amber (MESC 11-14), Domenique (MESC 11, 13), Danica Muscat (MESC 12-13), Marilena Gauci (MESC 11, 13), Andreana (MESC 98, 02-06, 09-10, 14), Fiona Cauchi (MESC 98, 01, 02, 05, 09) & Franklin Calleja (MESC 13, 14).

Apart from the established names, it seems that the line-ups of established groups such as Trilogy and Monroe have both been altered for the upcoming edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with Ludwig Galea replacing Daniel Debono in the former, and Nadia Vella becoming a new member of the latter, joining former Malta Eurovision Song Contest finalist; Kelly Schembri.

Other names which have caught our eye in the list are surely those of; Karen DeBattista, winner of this year’s edition of L-Għanja tal-Poplu; Kurt Cassar, winner of the Best New Talent at this year’s edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza; Annabelle Vella, backing vocalist to Malta’s entry at the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2008 and a group of nuns, who have most likely been inspired by the recent phenomenon on The Voice of Italy.

Everyone is somewhat gasping about the non-inclusion of Ira Losco in the first shortlist with the general feeling around the industry being that the Public Broadcasting Services may go ahead and offer a wildcard as is stated in the rules and regulations. This will be made public in a week’s time as Peppi Azzopardi and his dedicated team at WE Media reveal the chosen acts. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about the 2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest.

“Drop in number of Eurovision entries” is the name of an article that appeared in The Times of Malta earlier today, with direct reference to the fact that there was a fewer turnout that usual in the number of submissions that the Public Broadcasting Services revealed. escflashmalta.com made this quite clear in a subtle manner when confirming a host of names, both of vocalists and songwriters who did not put their first foot forward.

These included none other than; Sophie DeBattista, Davinia, Claudia Faniello, Ruth Portelli, De Bee, Pamela, Ray Agius, Alfred C Sant, Paul Giordimaina and Fleur Balzan. Nevertheless though, despite the drop in artists, Anton Attard, Head of Delegation on behalf of the Public Broadcasting Services confirmed to the leading local newspaper that the issue more or less deals with repeat submissions, songs that have been submit every year with the hope that they get through.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUOi3p73HpI

Whilst song submissions do eventually get through, others do not and if one looks at the shortlist of the past three to four years, some songs would always be recognizable. Artists whom escflashmalta.com can confirm to have submit to the 2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest include none other than; Domenique, Franklin Calleja, Izzy, Jessika, Kaya, Romina Mamo, Daniel Testa, Fabrizio Faniello, Dayle Camilleri and Ryan Paul Abela.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qqYOo_Hibs

Speculation on Ira Losco is continuing to mount and with Moira Delia landing the top job of hosting the upcoming edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, the news is only but confirmed. Her name among those shortlisted later on this month will definitely be the worst kept secret in recent years. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook & Twitter for all the latest news.

Published in Local Music News

In a shock announcement made during the 8 o'clock news bulletin a couple of weeks ago, it was revealed that the Public Broadcasting Services will be hosting the 2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest on the 21st & 22nd November at the Marsa Shipbuilding. What this meant though, is that singers and songwriters alike did not have ample time to get their material ready for Vienna, Austria with several opting out of the submission process which kicked off yesterday and officially comes to an end later on today.

Pamela (MESC 05-10,14), Davinia (MESC 13-14), Ruth Portelli (MESC 10), Kurt Calleja (ESC 12), Claudia Faniello (MESC 06-13) and Raquela Dalli Gonzi (MESC 09, 11, 13) have officially confirmed to the editorial team of escflashmalta.com that they will not be part of the submission process, for various reasons. On the other hand though, other artists whom we confirm to be part of the process are; Daniel Testa (MESC 14), Izzy (SHSC 11), Fabrizio Faniello (ESC 01, 06), Franklin Calleja (MESC 13-14), Domenique (MESC 11, 13) and Kaya (MESC 00, 10, 12). 

It is expected that the top female singer/songwriter in Malta, Ira Losco, who had also been to the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2002 will be making a scintillating return, on the back of an extremely successful year with "The Fire" topping the iTunes album chart for more than two consecutive months. The Public Broadcasting Services will continue receiving original and cover songs as submissions till 16:00 CET at the Creativity Hub in Gwardamangia. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook & Twitter.

Until 2013, Daniel Testa was the most successful artist to represent Malta in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest with "Junior Swing", a song he wrote himself, finishing in 4th place. That all changed when Gaia Cauchi swept to victory in an impressive performance of "The Start", co-written with Gillian Attard, Elton Zarb and Matthew Mercieca.

Earlier this year, Daniel Testa emerged as a dark horse during the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, and came the closest to winning the ticket, as a vocalist who had been to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, including Marilena Gauci and Sophie DeBattista who have made the finals but yet to trouble the top three. "One Last Ride", a co-write between Stephen Rudden and Lawrence Peter Bridge, finished in third place, after achieving the second most amount of points with the public, just behind "Hypnotica" composed by Philip Vella to the lyrics of Gerard James Borg by Jessika.

In an interview with junioreurovision.tv, Daniel Testa confirmed that he will be putting his name forward for the Malta Eurovision Song Contest in the future, including next year. Nevertheless, he hopes that 'there would not be too many' entries before he would finally triumph.

escflashmalta.com has always represented the best interests of the local music industry, by bringing the public the latest news from songwriters, producers, musicians and artists who have a local heritage whilst also supporting the nations' participation in the Eurovision Song Contest. It has become customary for the portal to organise features in relation to the Malta Eurovision Song Contest and therefore, for the third consecutive year, the escflashmalta.com awards were given, in partnership with ONE Radio 92.7 FM.

Clint on ONE, a flagship programme hosted on Saturday morning by Clint Bajada, the individual who has made the local music scene the centre of his radio strategy, played host to the awards this morning with Marc Calleja Bayliss, Editor-In-Chief of escflashmalta.com appearing on behalf of the portal to hand out the awards and also answer any related questions. The three (3) coveted awards were all given their prime attention, noting that the professional members of the music industry were assigned the preview videos of the songs, making their selection as if being judges of the actual competition, the public who had the right to select only one (1) song per IP Address, and last but not least, members of the media who had to select the best five (5) and the worst two (2) in rank order.

Basically, it is now time to reveal the full results of all three (3) awards, with the Public Award and Media Award having been presented to Trevor Fenech, representative of Daniel Testa whose One Last Ride written by Stephen Rudden and Lawrence Peter Bridge actually finished in third place during the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, and the Critics Award going to Davinia and her entry Brand New Day written by Matt Mercieca to the music of Elton Zarb, who in turn was present to accept the award. This was the first time ever in the history of the escflashmalta.com awards that one (1) artist managed to take home two (2) awards, meaning that there was more of consensus especially when keeping in mind that it was also a track which finished in the top three (3) come the end of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest.

Malta: Stunning iTunes Chart Debut for Amber

Amber, one of the most highly sought after female vocalists in Malta, and recent participant in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with the song Because I Have You composed by Paul Giordimaina to the lyrics of Fleur Balzan has just become the first act from the competition to reach the top ten of the iTunes singles chart in Malta, despite releases by semi-finalists; Miriam Christine and Fabrizio Faniello as well as second runner-up; Daniel Testa.

In 2011, Amber made her debut in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, being the only artist with two (2) songs and has never looked back from then onwards, finishing in third place with Answer With Your Eyes composed by Ray Agius to the lyrics of Alfred C Sant in 2012, and in fourth place for the past two years with In Control and Because I Have You. CAP-Sounds, entrusted with the release of the Safe (Miriam Christine), Just No Place Like Home (Fabrizio Faniello) and One Last Ride (Daniel Testa) are now also responsible for Because I Have You (Amber). You may purchase any of the songs mentioned above by clicking on their respective song-titles.
