SHSC 2014: Triumphant Domenique in First Victory

The 5th edition of the Summer Hit Song Contest, hosted by Deo Grech & Natius Farrugia, at The Dome Theatre within the Seabank Hotel, was truly a memorable night, a triumphant journey. 18 acts, carefully chosen by a select panel of professional judges, took to the main stage to perform their entry, having received ample promotion throughout the summer season, courtesy of F Living, Music News, escflashmalta.com and RTK Radio.

Lyndsay Pace, Mireille Bonello, Marisa D'Amato, Charlene Azzopardi, Daniel Falzon Mallia, George Cremona and Heathcliffe Balzan were solely responsible for the result last night, picking Domenique and her entry "Back To...", composed by Mark Scicluna to the lyrics of Emil Calleja Bayliss in first place. Nevertheless, with around 10 points separating the top three, one has to commend the first runner-up, "My Hero" composed by Renato Briffa to the lyrics of Keith Zammit with vocals provided by Anna Azzopardi as well as the second runner-up, "Pretend" composed by Renato Briffa to the lyrics of Doris Chetcuti.

On the other hand, "Overboard", the only duet competing in this year's edition of the Summer Hit Song Contest, featuring Audrey Marie & Rita Pace were chosen as winners of the tele-voting and as a result, also granted the opportunity to compete in next year's edition fo the Summer Hit Song Contest, a revelation made by Deo Grech & Karl Bonaci during the course of the evening. Remember, the competition will be broadcast on F Living on Saturday 27th September at 20:30 CET.

Gozo, sister island of Malta, and home to an incredible amount of talented singers and songwriters, will be lacking in submission numbers according to our intelligence, with both Pamela and Ruth Portelli opting out of the 2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest.

With the time-frame being respectfully limited and with other projects, it does not come as a surprise that a couple of vocalists will be sitting a year out. Ruth Portelli spoke directly to the editorial team of escflashmalta.com whilst Pamela stated her intentions during a recent interview she gave to Natius Farrugia and Deo Grech during the Summer Hit Song Contest which airs on F Living.

Between them, the talented ladies had been part of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest set-up a total of eight times, with Pamela participating on seven occasions between 2005 and 2014, and Ruth Portelli making it through to the final back in the 2010 edition.
