SHSC 2014: Eurostars Aplenty in Duets Phase

Tonight! The Summer Hit Song Contest continues. A music competition which originally took place between 2008 and 2011 and featured Miriam Christine, Neville Refalo, Romina Mamo, Minik and Siconix as winners, with a brand new selection of original songs. The celebrity-packed show is set to host leading singers from the local entertainment scene.

This week's edition of the Summer Hit Song Contest sees the return of several local stars for the Celebrity duets phase. The show, which airs on Monday at 20:30 on F Living Channel, has a very strong following this Summer.  The past editions of the same festival were also nominated for the Malta Television Awards in the Best Entertainment category, and one can understand why!

Fiona Vella from Fiona Couture will spice up the show with her critique on the artists' fashion sense. Miriam Christine, the very first winner of the Malta Hit Song Contest (2008) will return to the show with a specific role ... one, which will be revealed duing the show. During this week's show we will be able to follow the following Celebrity Duets:

Malcolm Pisani will feature in Mauro's entry, 'Fire Spell';

Renato will feature in Odessa's entry, 'Pretend';

Kurt Calleja will feature in Kelly Cassar's entry, 'One Precious Mile'

Kurt Cassar will feature in Christian's entry, 'Another Night in Heaven'

Rosman will feature in Domenique's entry, 'Back To..'

Brooke will feature in Dayle's entry 'You'

The guest artists will also perform songs from their own repertoire, whilst the Summer Hit Song Contest participants will draw their own place in the final's running order.

The competition aims to promote the local music artists in search of a true hit song. The show is produced and hosted by Deo Grech and Ignatius Farrugia. Stay tuned escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for the latest news from this year's edition of the Summer Hit Song Contest. Show is aired on Mondays and Sundays at 20:30 CET on F Living channel, your favourite tv channel for the best music this summer.

In recent years, the Malta Eurovision Song Contest has been the only local platform for songwriters and vocalists to produce original songs in English, but that has officially changed with the re-introduction of the Summer Hit Song Contest which returns to F Living as from the 14th July 2014. A total of 18 entries got through to the final stage of the competition with no less than 8 of them having already made it to the top of the music scene by virtue of reaching the Malta Eurovision Song Contest on at least one previous occasion.

Deo Grech, organiser of the Summer Hit Song Contest is pleased to be working with a professional production team, noting that F Living have been nothing but supportive of the project, one which has been previously won by Miriam Christine, Neville Refalo, Romina Mamo and Minik featuring Siconix.
