Malta: Music from the Eurovision on Local Radio

Devised as an international spectacle with the aim to bring about countries together through the medium of song, the Eurovision Song Contest has served a purpose for no less than 61 years, with Ireland holding the baton as the most successful participating country with 7 victories, the last of which coming back in 1996, at the hands of Eimear Quinn and "The Voice".

Malta, a 28-time participant is stir-crazy for the event, noting that the national selection coined as the Malta Eurovision Song Contest (previously; Malta Song for Europe) seeking the interest of every living song as the winning entrant is taken through a flurry of emotions prior to the experience in May. As a result of this fanatic approach, it should come as no surprise that both television and radio, with the latter in particular dedicate specific programmes in support of the event.

In fact, with the new autumn/winter schedule commencing as of last week, there are no less than 2 programmes in this season's programming; Euromix and Eurovision Radio. Airing on Radju Malta 2 every Thursday at 7:30 pm, Euromix is hosted by Frederick Zammit, and Luke Borg, a former journalist to the international website, esctoday.com bringing you the latest news, gossip and music from the 61 year old spectacle. On the other hand, airing on ONE Radio 92.7 every Friday at 7:45 pm, Eurovision Radio is hosted by Deo Grech and is the longest running radio show in Europe in dedication to the Eurovision Song Contest. Bringing even #live updates directly from the event in May, along with music and latest news from the competition.

escflashmalta.com has always represented the best interests of the local music industry, by bringing the public the latest news from songwriters, producers, musicians and artists who have a local heritage whilst also supporting the nations' participation in the Eurovision Song Contest. It has become customary for the portal to organise features in relation to the Malta Eurovision Song Contest and therefore, for the third consecutive year, the escflashmalta.com awards were given, in partnership with ONE Radio 92.7 FM.

Clint on ONE, a flagship programme hosted on Saturday morning by Clint Bajada, the individual who has made the local music scene the centre of his radio strategy, played host to the awards this morning with Marc Calleja Bayliss, Editor-In-Chief of escflashmalta.com appearing on behalf of the portal to hand out the awards and also answer any related questions. The three (3) coveted awards were all given their prime attention, noting that the professional members of the music industry were assigned the preview videos of the songs, making their selection as if being judges of the actual competition, the public who had the right to select only one (1) song per IP Address, and last but not least, members of the media who had to select the best five (5) and the worst two (2) in rank order.

Basically, it is now time to reveal the full results of all three (3) awards, with the Public Award and Media Award having been presented to Trevor Fenech, representative of Daniel Testa whose One Last Ride written by Stephen Rudden and Lawrence Peter Bridge actually finished in third place during the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, and the Critics Award going to Davinia and her entry Brand New Day written by Matt Mercieca to the music of Elton Zarb, who in turn was present to accept the award. This was the first time ever in the history of the escflashmalta.com awards that one (1) artist managed to take home two (2) awards, meaning that there was more of consensus especially when keeping in mind that it was also a track which finished in the top three (3) come the end of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest.
