In September, Malta will be celebrating 50 years of Independence, and as a result will see to a series of festivities held at the Granaries in Floriana. Throughout the week, the most concurrence is seen during the annual Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza. In a Press Release published through MaltaRightNow, the list of the finalists for this year's edition was made public, albeit without the names of the vocalists, which has added from the list of the first phase qualifiers published last week.

Domenique, Neville Refalo, Gloriana Arpa Belli, Geordie DeBono and Josef Tabone have more than 1 song in the competition and will retain the one which achieved the most points by a professional panel of judges which included; Olivia Lewis, Andrew Attard, Mro Maurizio Schembri, Sharon Deguara Cipriott and Noel D’Anastas. 30 entries have been selected to compete in the category 'Talent Stabbilit' whilst 7 entries will compete in the category 'Talent Ġdid'. It seems that the rules have been altered pertaining to song quality, although this is yet to be clarified.
