MESC '14: The Grand Final - LIVE

Good Evening! Welcome to the LIVE REPORT of the final of this years’ edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest being staged in Ta’ Qali, an artisan town where the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre is found, a couple of miles away from any form of civilization. Our colleagues in Malta have reported that the rehearsals have been going extremely well and that the Public Broadcasting Services is ready to host a show of the highest quality this evening with our three (3) illustrious hosts and a parade of local and foreign guests.

Ira Losco and Gianluca Bezzina; representatives of Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2002 and 2013 respectively along with Moira Delia, spokesperson on behalf of the Mediterranean country in the 2006 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest have been selected to coordinate the show, one which will include fourteen (14) acts as selected by the professional members of the local and foreign jury as well as the public vote during the semi-final yesterday evening. It was a relative shock to see two (2) former representatives; Miriam Christine and Fabrizio Faniello fall at the first hurdle especially following their stunning performances.

We are live now!

How could tonight’s final not start with Maltese latest pride, the great Gaia Gauci who won the recent Junior Eurovision that was held in Kyiv, Ukraine. The little princess is joined by a choir of La Voix Academy and the performance is really amazing! We are definately set for an exciting and great evening! The presenters the great Ira Losco and Gianlucca Bezzina are on stage now and making an introduction and explaning about the show. Moira the third presenter is in the audience and looks also stunning. Moira is congratulating Gaia. The members of the jury are also introduced. They are Reuben Zammitt head of the jury, Olga Salamahka head of delegation for Belarus, Nicola Caligore head of delegation for Italy, Ekaterina Orlova from RTR (Russia) and Peter Cossai, Head of Sport Section of PBS. And now we are off for the show!

Lovetricity - Christabelle (Magnus Kaxe / Gerard James Borg)

 Christabelle is opening tonight’s final with this uptemo song from Magnus Kaxe and lyrics from Gerard James Borg. Again Christabelle gives a solid performance so it’s a good opener of tonight’s final. Welldone to Christabelle and the team! If this is a contender for the victory i’m not so sure though but Christabelle did very good!

Some Kind of Wonderful - Wayne William (Wayne Micallef)

Having Wayne on stage is always a certainty of a strong performance. Just like last night Wayne is very confident with his track Some kind of wonderful. A great artist which would surely make Malta proud on Eurovision stage! The question though is this is the track that will lead him to Copenhagen. Could be but that will definately depend on the other performances tonight. And honesty obliges me to say he had better songs in the past. But Prosit Wayne!

Brand New Day - Davinia (Elton Zarb / Matt Mercieca)

Davinia was to me one of the surprise qualifiers to the finals. The song is obviously still as cheerful as last night and the singer seems to enjoy her time on stage. Unfortunately i cannot change my opinion that the song is not really going anywhere so i wouldnt go for it as the song for Copenhagen, sorry. But welldone overall for the performance!

City Lady - Ryan Paul Abela (Paul Abela / Ryan Paul / Joe Julian Farrugia)

Ryan Paul Abela is next on stage with a very cheerfull song. I like the enthousiasm of this very sympathic artist which gives again a lot of credits and gave him likely also the ticket to the final thanks to the audience watching at home. I don’t see this either in Denmark but my compliments go to the artist and his team.

Love Will Take Me Home - Franklin (Glen / Beatrice Eriksson / M Frenell / Michael J Down)

 It’s time for Franklin Calleja! He touched me a lot with his last nights performance. And again he gives an extremely performance. What a lot of respect i have for this  still  very young singer The stage act is simple but very effective and you see a singer who gives his all! The guy has such a great career ahead and i wouldnt be surprised if he would be winning the ticket to Eurovision tonight. Hear the applause during the performance, the people love this guy! Franklin is definately one of the topfavourites. Prosit Franklin and the team, i would be proud for my maltese friend to see you in Denmark!

One Last Ride - Daniel Testa (Stephen Rudden / Lawrence Peter Bridge)

And we are going to the next favourite. Daniel Testa already represented Malta at Eurovision in the Junior edition with a great placing. His performance is definately stronger then yesterday so i dont rule him out as one of the main contenders for the winning ticket. Will he make? Let’s see later on but the public seem to love this one too!.

Before we go on to the next song Ira and Gianlucca are threating us on a great intermezzo. What a clever and good show of PBS to have those two great artists as presenters!

Let The Sunshine In - Sophie (Sophie DeBattista / Adam Pakard / Alex Dew)

Funny enough the next artist also represented malta at Junior Eurovision. Sophie is giving a solid performance but like i said yesterday i’m not sure if this song would be the best choice for Eurovision. However all credits and congratulations for the performance and how can you not like such a nice and cheerfull girl!

Oblivion - Chris Grech (Philip Vella / Gerard James Borg)

Chris is on stage and proving again he’s a very powerfull singer. The guy definately knows how to sing and has a certain charisma that i can imagine women are attracted too. In terms for Eurovision in Denmark i believe the song might just miss that thing to win for the top places later on. But well done Chris!

Until We Meet Again - Deborah C (Elton Zarb / Matt Mercieca)

Deborah C is back in the finals for the third year in a row and it shows that this singer is developping in a very good way. Hard work and singing is clearly paying off! Deborah looks again great on stage. This very happy feeling song is making me smile with Deborah's enthousiasm! Well done Deborah and crossing fingers for the best possible result!

Hypnotica - Jessika (Philip Vella / Gerard James Borg)

Another hot favourite, especially amongst the European Eurofans is Jessica The  performance of Hypnotica is again very good with a very interesting choreography. This was surely the work of Gerard James Borg who is always very creative on this, so all my deep compliments on Ger! Should Hypnotica make it to Denmark it will surely be a fan favourite, but we have to think also on the older public and professional juries. Will they taste it as much as the fans? That is to be seen. But well done Jessica!

Take Me - Pamela (Boris Cezek)

And now we go to the angelic voice of Pamela Bezzina! Like yesterday im attached to the screen from the first till last minute and enjoying every second of her performance. What a voice and what great stage appearance, very simply but effective! I can see this just doing copy past to Copenhagen! I am so sure this will fight till the end to get that ticket. Will Pamela finally make it as leadsinger on Eurovision stage? I would be happy for her and Malta would head for a top position in Copenhagen surely! Prosit Pamela!

Coming Home - Firelight (Richard Micallef)

The next act is Firelight with Coming Home. Probably many maltese people will not like me but somehow i didnt expect the song to make it, so prosit on that already. The performance is solid and welldone but still i dont see this as the winning entry that will represent Malta at the Eurovision Songcontest.

Because I Have You - Amber (Paul Giordimaina / Fleur Balzan)

Amber is again joined by composer and 1991 representative Paul Giordimaina who also composed the song and who i respect a lot as one of maltese best composers. Amber seems to be less stressed then last night and i must say she looks great performing this melodic tune. However i fear for Amber that she will  have to wait to win the ticket to Eurovision.

Pin The Middle - De Bee (Peter Paul Galea / Debbie Stivala)

De Bee is one of the much rumoured for the victory. I’m so sorry but i dont get this at all. Don’t misunderstand me the performance is solid and the singer is doing a very good job but i still dont feel any chemistry. It still might win though, let the public and jury decide i would say.

So we had all the songs now! The televoting has been opened and we have a recap of all the songs before we go to a long list of interval acts.

Part 2 of the show

Ira Losco is starting the intervalacts and she proves that she is still an amazing artist and looking fabulous! When are you returning to Eurovision Ira?

And we are off for another recap!

Gianluccas is performing now with a new song along with his family, so it’s like the Bezzina group. Before some images were shown from last years festival. And they are off for more, this is sounding really nice! Of course Gianlucca's winning song from last year cannot be forgotten! The audience is cheering a lot! This is why i love the maltese public so much, they cherish their esc artists so much!

Moira is now in the greenroom with all the finalists! Everyone seem to have a great time but surely nerves are very tensed! And off we go again with another performance of Ira again. She followed by a crazy act from Gorg u Pawlu who got fame with their 'Hot and famous' last year, well at least in malta. It looks very funny, but as this is a great show this is a strange act not really fitting in. But it's funny though!

Next one on stage is one of Maltese most popular bands Wintermoods. Great vocals and strong songs i must say, respect!

After Wintermoods we have the Swiss entry Sebalter on stage presenting their song for Eurovision. After that performance which doesnt give much of attention we are off to the winner of last years Eurovision Emelie de Forest who is presenting her new song Rainmaker, the theme of the 2014 Eurovision! She is joined by all contestants and it really sounds great! this is a new hit for Emelie i'm pretty sure!

And off for another commercial break. Will we know the results soon? Let's cross fingers for it!

We are off to the voting!!

The televoting gives 12 to Jessika and 10 to Daniel Testa

the first judge gives 12 to firelight

the russian judges gives 12 to Deborah C!

the italian head of delegation gives 12 to firelight

very different voting!!

the belarussian judge gives 12 to firelight

the head of jury gives also 12 to firelight

So Firelight is the song for Malta. As i told i admit i was totally wrong here but stand my opinion. All the best of luck to malta though!

MMAs 2014: Interview with Noel Magri (MMM)

Whilst the focus of the local music industry and most of the continent is on the upcoming edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, it is worth pointing out that this years' edition of the Malta Music Awards are set to take place on Sunday 9th February at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre in Ta' Qali. Therefore, escflashmalta.com got in touch with Noel Magri, from Mega Music Management to oversee the preparations whilst having a look at former editions of the prestigious event.

On the 20th October 1995, Mega Music Management organised the first edition of the Malta Music Awards, a different time in the local music scene with the participation in the Eurovision Song Contest considered to be the elite point a vocalist or a songwriter could reach at the time. Looking back, why did you feel that such recognition had to be given, and was it too late a start?

At that time, efforts were being made by local singers and musicians to improve their standard and although many countries were honouring their artists for their achievements, there was nothing similar in Malta, and I thought of creating an Awards show giving due recognition to artists for their work throughout the past year, and to motivate them to better their standards.  The first edition was a huge success and all artists and those involved in the music scene wanted this kind of event be held yearly.

It is fair to say that the professional jury behind the choices made at the Malta Music Awards have been rather on the money in their choices for the Best Newcomer with recipients including; Olivia Lewis, Glen Vella, Miriam Christine, Hooligan, Red Electrick and Mikaela amongst others. How rewarding is it to see that artists who are bestowed this prestigious honour succeeding in their career?

Our intention has and will always be, to award the best talent at the time, and to help them succeed in their musical career.   It is rewarding to see artists who have won awards, being successful over the years, and that the MMA’s has given them that much needed confidence to move forward and improve their all round performance.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3tbKWd0X_Y

In 2013 and 2014, the Public Broadcasting Services decided to conduct an experiment, and hold the Malta Music Weekender, which basically features a weekend of local talent, kicking off with the Malta Eurovision Song Contest and then following it up with the Malta Music Awards. This experiment has been seen to be extremely positive and has generated interest amongst both local and international audiences alike. What was your initial idea to such a proposal and will you be implementing any changes this time round?

From the very first edition, my aim was to help better the standards of local music in general, and to help artists succeed in the International scene.   Having a sound backing is important to hold such a professional show, and the idea of holding the PBS Music Weekender has been very successful.  Holding two major local events in one weekend has helped to attract more attention from the Maltese general public, and give the local artists a major platform to showcase their talent.

Cliff Richard, Blue, Peter Andre, Robin Gibb and Bob Sinclar have all been invited to Malta on behalf of Mega Music Management, making the Island a better attraction in the entertainment scene. It has become somewhat at the best interest of everyone to denote the best possible attractions that such events can promise. Should the public be expecting any foreign special guests during this years’ edition of the Malta Music Awards, possibly even performing at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest?

There will be foreign guest singers performing during the Eurovision Festival, coming from the Eurovision background, however this year’s edition of the MMA’s will see a very strong local line-up with 14 top performing acts, plus an after show concert by Xirka Rock which is expected to blow the roof down.  Certainly, not to be missed.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Hd1wE4UtzA

Gaia Cauchi, winner of the 2013 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest was selected by the Public Broadcasting Services to represent Malta following her International Achievement Award at the Malta Music Awards last year. Would you go as far as to predicting the artist who might be doing the same honour for the country in a couple of months time and how proud as a company were you to be recognised in such a manner?

Last year, we recognised Gaia’s talent and we honoured her for her achievements.  PBS decision to select Gaia reaped benefits and I would go as far as proposing the same method be used to select our Eurovision representative in the coming years.  We are honoured to have exposed such young talent who achieved such a huge success.  There are various young promising singers who, if they are well looked after, can achieve success Internationally.

The Rifffs, Airport Impressions, Red Electrick, The Crowns, Norbert, Plan Zero, Andi, Sophie, The New Victorians, Ira Losco, Gaia and Winter Moods are all being given the opportunity to perform during this years’ edition of the Malta Music Awards. What should the public be expecting from these acts, and will there be any special surprises, maybe which you could reveal?

All the major artists will be performing their songs for the first time in public, and obviously having such a majestic set-up and stage, we will be looking forward to their performances.    It is worth mentioning the new talent who will be exposed in this show and who I’m sure, will go down very well with the crowd.  People hear their music on Radio stations, but probably are not aware that these are Maltese!

Would you like to say anything to our readers at escflashmalta.com?

The MMA’s have always been very well attended by the public, and my appeal is to keep on supporting this show which is promoting local music and motivating artists to improve their product. Ticket prices are only Eur 10.

Published in Interviews

On the official website of the Public Broadcasting Services, along with a simulataneous announcement on the hit television programme Xarabank, it was revealed that the star guest for both the semi-final and the final of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest will be none other than Emmelie de Forest. The Dane, winner of the 2013 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest with the song Only Teardrops co-written by Lise Cabble, Julia Fabrin Jakobsen and Thomas Stengaard is also set to be a guest act at the German national selection later on this year, in what seems to be an extremely busy year for the singer/songwriter.

On the night of the semi-final, it is expected that Emmelie will perform her winning entry of the international showcase, but the Public Broadcasting Services has secured an exclusive performance of a brand new track entitled Rainmaker, which will in turn be used as the theme song for the 2014 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. Also, the finalists of the national selection in Malta, meaning the fourteen (14) left after the show on Friday will get the opportunity to perform with the renowned vocalist. Emmelie will not be the only guest act during the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with Winter Moods, The Crowns, Red Electrick, Gianluca, Ira Losco, Gaia Cauchi, Maria Yaremchuk and the winner of the Swiss national final this evening all taking centre stage.

MESC '14: More Opportunities for Local Talent

The Malta Eurovision Song Contest, a selection process organised by the Public Broadcasting Services in anticipation of the prestigious international music event, is the perfect hub to present the local music scene. For this reason, it has been decided that a number of special guests, rather well-known for their music through the radio and gigs across the country, will get the opportunity to perform either during the semi-final set to take place on the 7th February or the final which will be airing the following day on the 8th February at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre.

In the semi-final, as the public and the jury are reaching a verdict, two major headlining acts have been added to the list of special performers; Matthew James Borg and Peter Borg of Red Electrick who also co-wrote one of the entries in last years’ edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, that being Never Walk Away by Chris Grech, which finished in a respectable fifth place; and The Crowns whose lead vocalist Victorio Gauci was also a finalist in the competition back in 2009, performing a duet with Dorothy Bezzina, entitled Promises.

On the night of the final, as had been previously revealed by escflashmalta.com, the winner of the 2013 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Gaia Cauchi, will be opening the show with a choir from La Voix Academy headed by Miss G. Nevertheless, she will not be the only local entertainment on offer with the ever-so-popular duo Ġorġ u Pawlu performing their hit tracks Hot and Famous and Unique. The Public Broadcasting Services is also pleased to reveal that the band Winter Moods will be exclusively releasing a brand new single entitled Everlasting which follows their recent success with the track Days of my Life. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all the latest news about the 2014 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest.

At the end of the year, an awards system is put in motion in order to bestow a couple of honours upon some artists who might have either been overlooked or who had still garnered popularity throughout the year.

The project is divided into five categories; TOP ALBUM, TOP SINGLE/EP, TOP VIDEO, TOP ONLINE RELEASE and TOP OVERSEAS RELEASE, in a clear bid to make sure that no one is left out of the running in the several awards. Voting could take place through one’s personal account through Facebook on the official website, and then also follow the standings which are updated on an hourly basis. Artists from the Eurovision Song Contest, including none other than; Chris & Moira (1994), Ira Losco (2002) and Gianluca Bezzina (2013) are all nominated.

Winter Moods, one of the most successful bands to feature in the local music industry features Ivan Grech on vocals, Melvin Caruana on guitars, Joseph Rizzo on bass, Etienne Robinich on keyboards and Karl Fenech on drums. Following the release of the 2010 studio album Argento which also led to several singles including Last to Know, Forward to Yesterday and My Neverland, the group decided to promote the material they had in their hands and stay out of the recording studio.

That all changed in recent months with the group recording a collaboration with world renowned tenor, Joseph Calleja entitled Miss You prior to releasing a brand new single, one which will also feature in their upcoming studio album, that being Days of My Life. This brand new track, is being supported through a lyric video published on viral website, YouTube whilst also having been featured on the hit local movie, Adormidera. It is worth pointing out that the song is quite different to the genre that Winter Moods had become somewhat attached to in their last two studio albums. This bodes quite well, denoting that the musicians are evolving and thus, without a doubt, we are fans. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.
