KKI 2012: ESCflashmalta Poll Preference Differs

Rate this item
(1 Vote)

The twenty-first edition of the annual Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza was organized on The Granaries in Floriana more than three weeks ago with many somewhat surprised at the final result as announced by Ronald Briffa and Christine Haber whose sheer professionalism shined throughout the whole evening broadcasted on NET Television. In the lead up to the competition, many had been talking about who the eventual winner would be and our poll is somewhat reflecting that opinion once more although it is to be noted that most of the votes for Deborah C and her entry Jekk Nużaw Moħħna came from Gozo, the Maltese sister island from which, the performer comes from. According to the readers of escflashmalta.com though it seems that it is the only point of agreement with two stars emerging out of their shadows to take centre stage finishing in second and third place in our poll, despite somewhat finishing in the second part of the top ten in the official results as revealed exclusively by this media outlet, the morning after the competition.

In a quick analysis of the results, it seems that the first major winner is none other than the eighteen year old; Danica Muscat whose reputation in the industry is quickly starting to precede her. She gave a masterful performance of the song Indipendenti penned by Cher Vella to the music of her father, Philip. Overall, the track finished in sixth place but our readers seem to believe that it should have been the one to challenge Deborah C for the victory noting the eventual runner-up; Marilena Gauci with the song Bl-Ikbar Serjetà composed by Philip Vella and penned by Joe Chircop could only manage seventh place in our poll. The statistic is somewhat extremely intriguing when one notes that the experience of the two performers is somewhat similar with Danica having a slighter edge having been to Italy on the show Io Canto on Canale 5 and thus gaining the opportunity to perform with some of the most well known names in the Italian music industry whilst receiving advice from world wide stars in the form of James Blunt as acknowledged in our recent exclusive interview. Both performers will be submitting tracks for the 2013 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest.


The second biggest winner in the poll seems to be the rather unknown Rachel Verzin whose sheer talent evolved quickly on stage as she gave a rousing performance of the track Dell L-Istilel composed by Dominic Cini to the lyrics of Stephen Baldacchino. This was the first ever nationwide competition for Rachel and it almost did not happen when the backing track played and stopped in the first couple of seconds. Remaining calm and relaxed though, she performed with confidence, enough to earn her eight place with the jury on the evening. The actual third place was given to Domenique with the song Tama u Kuraġġ composed by Philip Vella and penned by Cher Vella which ended up in fourth place within our poll meaning that the people somewhat agreed with the official placing that the young, upcoming performer achieved during the evening. Another notable mention when taking this poll into consideration is the result achieved by Julie Pomorski with the song Għidli Int written by Augusto Cardinali which finished in fifth place as opposed to the tenth place result given by the jury on the night. A stunning performance left several people blank and it seems that her comeback has hit the right note already. The opinion in the poll only reflects the opinion of the readers and not of the editorial board behind this website.
