One of the most prestigious competitions in the local music industry is surely the annual Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza which does not only help promote upcoming talent but also does so within the Maltese language which is recognized as the national method of conversation in the country respectively. Throughout the years, winners of the competition have included the likes of Mike Spiteri, Miriam Christine, Claudette Pace, Claudia Faniello, Amber, Annabelle Debono and Eleanor Cassar, all of which have gone onto achieve various forms of success in other local and international competitions. In the meantime, as from this years' edition, one of the places in the Established Category was given to the winner of the Passport 2 Indifest competition organized by Spiteri Lucas Entertainment.

The initial winner was the upcoming performer; Simone Gauci who ended up performing the track Id F'Id composed by Renato Briffa and penned by Keith Zammit. The song was written especially with a female performer in mind and ultimately, it was performed exceptionally well on the stage of The Granaries in Floriana during the competition hosted by Ronald Briffa and Christine Haber. The result might not have been too positive but then again, the performer enjoyed the experience thoroughly. Following the success of the first edition, the committee of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza decided to work with Spiteri Lucas Entertainment for a second edition and in fact, there are seventeen (17) finalists, all of which are competing for that elite spot and hoping to ultimately become the winner of the 2013 edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza.

Programme 1: Letizia Seychell & Marie Claire Attard Bason

Programme 2: Cynthia Attard & Mikaela Bajada

Programme 3: Ann Marie Ellul & Diandra Mifsud

Programme 4: Claudio Castelletti & Karen Debattista

Programme 5: Ana Maria Grima & Michela Dalli

Programme 6: Kurt Galea & Cherise Attard

Programme 7: Nicola Marie Cutajar & Raquel Dalli & Maria Cassar

Programme 8: Graziella Vella & Dorcas Debono

Most of the finalists have credentials to show for their respective appearances in this programme with some of the people above having been in some of the most prestigious competitions in the country including the same aforementioned Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza as well as the Malta Eurosong competition in a particular case therefore, it also goes to show that talent is finding it somewhat difficult. This time round, Passport 2 Indifest has eliminated tele-voting completely and therefore will be resorting to a panel of judges which will most likely include a head judge as well as special weekly guest judges throughout. Stay tuned every Saturday to Sas-Sitta on NET Television to watch this competition unravel and unfold.
