This evening proved to be quite a special one for the local music scene with one of the most major showcases being presented to the public sphere within one of the most exclusive hotels in the nation, Portomaso. The impressive setting of the event within the marina proved to be a great backdrop for the spectacle that was set to follow. Hosted by a lovely female presenter along with Deo Grech and Natius Farrugia, the nineteen songs competing for the coveted title of the Summer Hit Song Contest took to the stage. The organisers did their best to organize an outstanding show and rose to the occasion when some minor issues were dealt with extremely quickly. The participants were friends and their teams were very nice to the people present. In the end though, despite the brilliant performances, only one song could win the top prize.

The event was opened up to great fan fare with a number of guest artists headlining the beginning. Amongst the people present to perform on the stage were none other than Vittorio Gauci who sang 'Memories' as well as Christabelle with her song track 'Everything About You', both of which were hits on the Local Bay Radio Charts as counted down by Nathan D. In the meantime, another set of performances were given near the end from none other than Josmar, a semi-finalist of the Malta Eurosong in 2009 and Romina Mamo who was the last winner of the Summer Hit Song Contest as well as a Malta Song for Europe finalist in 2003 and 2005. The show was not tedious and the running time was just right and in the fact, the results were announced.

The jury for the evening were made up of ten individuals from the music and the television scene including none other than former Eurovision Song Contest representative, Olivia Lewis, PBS presenter and producer, Ryan Borg, ONE Television presenter and Disc Jockey, Clint Bajada, Presenter, singer and musical activities organiser, Renato Vella, musician, composer and recording engineer, Manolito Galea, Image consultant, Josette Grech and members of the new band 'The Crowns', Victorio Gauci and Gianluca Capitta. Before making a list, we would like to congratulate the people who did get the results but also those who made it to the final stages of the competition.
