MESC 2013: An Analysis of the Final Night

Written by
The Malta Eurovision has come to an end - a surprising one for the majority of the people for different reasons. The first congratulations has to go directly to PBS who took on board the comments by the public and ensured that the problems that hampered the performances in yesterday’s show where a thing of the past. The show was one of very high quality and for one of the few times, if not the first, that the winner was announced before the strokes of midnight. The show was thoroughly planned and the timing was well scheduled. The audience loved the opening act by DREAMS – the same act opened last year’s showcase and it was heavily criticized but the choice of songs and presentation left the desired effect as it was done professionally without any glitches whatsoever. The presenters once again kept things light and although some might have…
Another year passed and another semi-final took place with loads of surprises in store for all those following the show in Malta.

The package has always been coined as to being the element which the public and the jury must select to represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest and one cannot deny that this element has not been analysed thouroughly by nations who have achieved success in the past. It has long been said that some nations who have not achieved positive results in recent years, are trying to turn back the time and check what they had done but nevertheless, times are changing and past formulas might not be the way to go and that is something that the Public Broadcasting Services has taken up in recent years, denoting a change of strategy with sheer professionalism becoming the element behind the actual selection process. Each of the competing acts in this years’ Malta Eurovision Song Contest have achieved promotion through both television and radio, whether individualistic or as a…
