'The Celebrity Night' is the new Saturday night show which will be broadcast at 20:30 on F Living Channel. The series which officially kicked off a couple of weeks ago, revolves around the one-to-one interviews, which speak of class, decadence and wit, and have become synonymous with Deo Grech's presenting style.

Christabelle,  a female vocalist, who gained notoriety as a result of her first runner-up finish in the 2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Rush", written by Elton Zarb and Matthew Mercieca, is clearly on a high, and the most current guest on this evening's programme. She will be joined by another female guest, Angie Brown, a legendary singer/songwriter from South London, whose hit singles include "Took My Love" and "I'm Gonna Get You", the latter of which she performed on The Voice UK just a couple of months ago.

The third personality to feature this week is none other than male singer/songwriter, Kurt Calleja who knows all too well the pressures of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, having taken part on three occasions, before eventually winning the ticket in 2012. His entry "This Is The Night", co-written with Johan Jämtberg and Mikael Gunnerås was a surprise winner, yet also won the hearts of Europe when  it qualified to the final in Baku, Azerbaijan. This week's final personality is Andrew Zahra, a composer who requires no introduction whatsoever having been responsible for songs such as "L-Arka tal-Libertà", "Fomm il-Vjolin", "Stejjer", "Topsy Turvy" and "Let it Shine".

This Monday, Fabrizio Palma will be over to give out a masterclass to all the singers who apply for it. The better part of this opportunity is that one will not just be working with, but the Maltese will be singing a part of a song, preferably in Italian or English, and before he leaves Malta, Palma will pick one of the artists that has been at his masterclass, for him to write a single to. 

Fabrizio Palma is a well renowned artist when it comes to the Italians and enjoys wide fame throughout Europe, mostly in Malta too. He is best known for being a vocal coach on the shows with worldwide fame ‘Ti Lascio Una Canzone’, where the last winner was our very own Federica Falzon, and also he is the vocal coach on the competition ‘Amici’ of Maria De Filippi. This event is available at our singer’s hand thanks to Claire McCartin Vocal Studio and OltreOceano Festival Live. Claire McCartin is a certified IVA vocal teacher in Malta and also is one of the very few teachers in Malta who leads her students to the Pop Music Exams from Rockschool.

Claire McCartin is a recognizable figure in the local music industry, having been in the finals of the Malta Eurosong competition back in 2010 with “Ole Satchmo Blues”, as well as being one of the lead vocalists in the charity concert “Voices” which is staged every other year. Karl Schembri had won the contest of OltreOceano Festival Live lately and it has made a huge connection between the Maltese Islands and the Maltese people, having got contacts with Claire McCartin so as to bring things like these to Malta.

Here in Malta, the hype did not come to an end right after hosting the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, it is still going on and will continue up till next Saturday. This is due to the fact that the tiny nation in the middle of the Mediterranean will have a representative for the next edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, taking place in Vienna, Austria. Without a doubt, it goes without saying that rehearsals are in full swing and the Shipbuilding has never looked so beautiful and energetic, except for last Saturday.

After three days of rehearsals, each and every singer had two (2) rehearsals. Therefore we have seen the twenty (20) competitors twice on the magnificent stage presented to Europe last weekend. Later on this morning, a couple of hours before the actual show commences, there is the dress rehearsal which will allow all the singers to utilise the stage in the manner that they will during the semi-final stage of the competition which will take place later on in the evening.

The artists, songwriters, producers, and teams are happy with the output, noting that the Public Broadcasting Services have really pulled out all of the stops to ensure that everything is organised in a professional manner. They are happy with their performance, and the way that their song has been brought to life on that massive stage, blending in the right amount of shots, with the perfect backdrop. 

We highly recommend that you sit down and enjoy the show, either in the arena or at the comfort of your own home. escflashmalta.com will be on hand to provide song-by-song commentary, courtesy of This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. during the semi-final, and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. during the final. We remind you that this will take place on Facebook and Twitter. Stay tuned to this portal for all the latest news about the 2015 Malta Eurovision Song Contest.

On the 21st and 22nd November, the Public Broadcasting Services will be hosting the 2014-2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest at the Marsa Shipbuilding. 20 acts will be taking centre stage, in hope of representing the country at next year's edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, being held in Vienna, Austria. Over the next couple of weeks, escflashmalta.com will be publishing a series of interviews with all the participants. Whilst thanking the Public Broadcasting Services for this opportunity, Let's continue and follow things up with Karen DeBattista.

Would you kindly introduce your entry to our readers and also identify the meaning behind the lyrics?

My song is called ‘12, Baker Street’, with lyrics by Emil Calleja Bayliss and music by Jan van Dijck. I consider my song for this year’s Malta Eurovision Song Contest as one with a mixture of genres, all combined together to create a wonderful harmony. Apart from the music, the lyrics of the song also help to draw in people since it is a sweet love story which shows that if it is true, love will find a way.

In Malta, the Eurovision Song Contest is considered to be a major outlet for the music industry, and you stand here as one of the semi-finalists. What does the whole experience mean to you?

I feel privileged to be one of this year’s semi-finalists. From a very young age, I dreamt of performing for such a large crowd on a magnificent stage and luckily enough this year I have the opportunity to do so. It is an experience which will definitely help me grow both as an artist and in developing my music. 

Recently, Malta has been rather successful at the Eurovision Song Contest, making the final on four of the last five participation attempts. What do you think is the reason for this success, and do you believe that your entry has what it takes to continue this positive trend?

I believe the main factor for our success as a country would be the fact that we chose a young and fresh group of people with a catchy and fun song to represent us. That is what the people want: something that will make them smile and feel good. That, and more importantly, good marketing techniques when it comes to promoting our entry in participating countries.

If you were given the opportunity to sing another one of the competing entries in the 2014-2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, which one would it be and why?

I think it would be Corazon’s song ‘Secretly’. In my opinion, both our styles are similar, apart from the fact that her song is one of my favourites in this year’s competition. 

Do you have any plans to release more music in the future, and do you have any particular projects in the pipeline?

Definitely. That has always been my aim, although I like to take things one step at a time. We’ll see what the future will bring. 

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

I would like to thank all the readers of escflashmalta.com for the constant support towards all artists, both in the Malta Eurovision as well as in the Eurovision Song Contest. I hope that you’ll all like my song “12, Baker Street”!

Would you kindly introduce your entry to our readers and also identify the meaning behind the lyrics?

Stop Haunting Me is produced by Elton Zarb and written by Muxu.

It is a song that is personal to me and my songwriter. It talks about the moment you finally move on from a bad stage in your life, and you are finally doing good, and have found peace within yourself, but your past keeps haunting you and reminding you of all that once happened, You finally found peace within yourself to let go of it all, and just want your past whether its your ex or someone who has done you wrong to let go of you  and let you be free, and most importantly happy.

In Malta, the Eurovision Song Contest is considered to be a major outlet for the music industry, and you stand here as one of the semi-finalists. What does the whole experience mean to you?

I don’t consider Eurovision as a competition. I consider it as an opportunity for the 20 semi-finalists to be really exposed to the public, make new friends in the music industry and also a European Music Feast! I am so so so glad to be with the semi-finalists, and am enjoying every second of the whole experience!!

Recently, Malta has been rather successful at the Eurovision Song Contest, making the final on four of the last five participation attempts. What do you think is the reason for this success, and do you believe that your entry has what it takes to continue this positive trend?

Year after year every performing artist is taking Eurovision with more passion and determination which is finally leading us to have beautiful and powerful songs representing Malta. Also, there is a great team of professionals behind every winning song which helps a lot!

I fully believe in my song and the whole package. Considering what the song is really about, the style and the hard work me and my team are doing - I think that we have all it takes to continue the positive trend!!

If you were given the opportunity to sing another one of the competing entries in the 2014-2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, which one would it be and why?

I love all the entries but on the other hand, none of songs are my style to sing so I would rather stick with mine :) :)

Do you have any plans to release more music in the future, and do you have any particular projects in the pipeline?

Last September I was one of the 400 artists who auditioned at Downtown Artists London. I have been one of the 5 chosen artists and so I am currently working on my new album, which will be hopefully released in the beginning of next year. 

There may be other opportunities which may arise in the coming days, which I will absolutely take! 

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

I would like to thank everyone who is supporting my song. I am really overwhelmed with all the positive comments and feedback. All this give me more motivation to keep on working hard as well as feeling satisfied that all the work hard is finally paying off! THANKYOU!!!

Would you kindly introduce your entry to our readers and also identify the meaning behind the lyrics?

‘It’s OK’ evokes a simple message that everyone can relate to. Unfortunately, we all go through stuff that makes us upset whether it’s a heartbreak or any other form of pain, but we all move on because we live in hope that it will be ok. In life, we experience many things and they normally sort themselves out after a while. So it’s fine, you can cry, you can feel sad but not for too long as we only live once and we must try and enjoy every moment of it. So to sum up, the song is about accepting that things will not always go your way and it’s ok, you can handle it anyway :)

In Malta, the Eurovision Song Contest is considered to be a major outlet for the music industry, and you stand here as one of the semi-finalists. What does the whole experience mean to you?

Speaking for myself as a singer, Eurovision is a big music platform which may unlock new doors and provide international opportunities. All artists including composers and authors taking part in it will have the occasion to demonstrate their talent to a numerous multitude.

Recently, Malta has been rather successful at the Eurovision Song Contest, making the final on four of the last five participation attempts. What do you think is the reason for this success, and do you believe that your entry has what it takes to continue this positive trend?

Personally, I think that in the past four years the singers/band that represented Malta had delivered an outstanding performance and also all songs were particularly catchy. I believe my entry has a very catchy melody yet is very simple and easy to remember.

If you were given the opportunity to sing another one of the competing entries in the 2014-2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, which one would it be and why?

I think it would be ‘Love and Let Go’ by Eklessia Sisters because it’s a sweet song based on a true story.

Do you have any plans to release more music in the future, and do you have any particular projects in the pipeline?

Yes definitely! I’ll be working on more original songs and hopefully to be releasing an Album.

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

We become artists and we continue to succeed in life thanks to the followers for keeping our music shine and alive!! A huuuuuge Thank You goes to all of you out there who have been constantly supporting me through the years…I really appreciate it! Thanks so much for all your positive feedback ;)

Would you kindly introduce your entry to our readers and also identify the meaning behind the lyrics?

My song is called Rush, it is written by Matthew Muxu Mercieca and composed by Elton Zarb.

My song basically sums up my life. The title in itself says it all – RUSH. The song has a two fold meaning. The first one being, my hectic, on the go daily routine but on a deeper level it also refers to the strong emotion that conquers your body when you find yourself deeply in love. 

In Malta, the Eurovision Song Contest is considered to be a major outlet for the music industry, and you stand here as one of the semi-finalists. What does the whole experience mean to you?

The experience gained from this festival will remain with me throughout my career, mostly because of the exposure that comes with it. As stated above, this contest is the largest one in our country and Maltese citizens are very intrigued and follow attentively therefore it is an honour to be part of it. It is also substantial to not exclude the fact that through this experience you meet many new people, through the contest itself and also in the process leading up to the final night. 

Recently, Malta has been rather successful at the Eurovision Song Contest, making the final on four of the last five participation attempts. What do you think is the reason for this success, and do you believe that your entry has what it takes to continue this positive trend?

I always choose to perform songs that I believe in. The success is not only derived from the performer but from all the hard working people behind the scenes and the supporters.

If you were given the opportunity to sing another one of the competing entries in the 2014-2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, which one would it be and why?

It is quite a controversial question as there are plenty of very good songs, but now that I have put so much work and time in to my song I would not change it for the world. 

Do you have any plans to release more music in the future, and do you have any particular projects in the pipeline?

I will definitely release new songs to maintain the public interest in my music and to also make myself happy by creating music that keeps me being so enthusiastic about this passion of mine.

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

Keep on reading this blog especially if you are interest in the Eurovision song contest as it is very informative. On the other hand I would like to wish my heartfelt good luck to our Superstar Federica Falzon for Junior Eurovision. Hope you enjoy watching both the semi-final and the final of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest and if you are pleased with my performance don’t hesitate to grab your phone and vote for me :D
