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.

Claudia Faniello, a regular face at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest throughout the years, has decided to opt out of the competition for the second consecutive occasion. The reasoning behind this is relatively straightforward, with the female singer/songwriter currently working on her sophomore album, the follow-up to the successful debut "Convincingly Better" which was released on the CAP-Sounds imprint.

The lead single off the record, "When It's Time" was a participating entry in the 2013 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest and peaked at number #2 on Malta's Top Ten with Nathan D. It was the beginning of a different journey for Claudia, something that was given more life with the release of the second single "One Fine Day". Supported by a music and lyric video, all done in an extremely professional manner, the song managed to top Malta's Top Ten on 89.7 Bay for more than 3 weeks in a row.

Claudia Faniello follows in the footsteps of Davinia, as former runner-ups who will not be sending in any submissions for the 2015 Malta Eurovision Song Contest. You may support both female singer/songwriters through their official accounts on social networking website, Facebook. In the meantime, we urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook & Twitter for all the latest news.

It was just a couple of days ago that newsbook.com published an article pertaining to the possibility of a duet between Ira Losco and Gianluca, one which would then be submit to the 2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest which will be taking place at the Marsa Shipbuilding on the 21st and the 22nd November 2014.

In an interview with Paul and Trudy on "The Thursday Night Project", Ira Losco categorically denied a possible duet, stating that whilst there is a lot of chemistry when performing with Gianluca, this was not something on the table. Very close sources to escflashmalta.com have confirmed that Ira is extremely tempted to submit an entry for the 2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, as a soloist.

This would not come as a surprise to many, considering that in recent years, most of the songs that were sent to the international competition ended up entering the charts in several countries. Both "Coming Home" and "Tomorrow" were commercial successes in the international market and that could very much tempt Ira to return to the event which had once brought her a second place finish and a name of repute in Malta.
