An Expert Opinion: The Results of the MSHSC 2011

(0 votes)

When the Malta Summer Hit Song Contest regulations came out, I was already sure that the festival would be a guaranteed success and noting the audience that it has been garnering over the past couple of years, our thoughts were to continue increasing it's viewership, giving as much exposure to the acts as possible and that is why, we sought the festival organizer, Deo Grech to see what could be done for this local showcase. Together we came up with the idea of introducing each act and also get a set of people from within the music industry to discuss these songs and rank them according to their preference. The success of the feature 'An Expert Opinion' has been achieved in my opinion because the culminating amount of views on the reviews has been extremely high reaching 5931 Hits in total which would be well over 6000 Hits if one counts the introduction.

We have reached the verdict now and we are proud to announce that the results seem to be well in accordance to the public opinion we have been receiving noting that individual comments and suggestions were even passed on from the general public and that is what our aim was, to get the people talking, about the artists, the songwriters and the actual songs. At the end of the day, the general public is what makes or breaks a whole package. The results were too close for comfort at the help but it is quite nice that we have just one winner even though it is just by one point. Below you will see the placings along with the total amount of points. Please note that the ties within the scoreboard have been separated according to the highest amount of point received, if there was even a tie within this frame, our head expert, Niall Mooney distinguished the tie with his vote.

18th Place: Marlon Chircop - Galaxy (Marlon Chircop)

17th Place: Walter Anthony - Turn On The Lights (Philip Vella)

16th Place: Domenique - Love Trap (Clinton Paul)

15th Place: Marie Claire Attard Bason - Someday, One Day (Mark Scicluna / Billy J)

14th Place: Malcolm Pisani - Ale'O (minik / Billy J)

13th Place: Karen DeBattista - Memoirs (Mark Scicluna / Daniel Muscat)

12th Place: Francesca Borg - Heaven Awaits (Marco Debono / Rita Pace)

11th Place: Christian - Labyrinth (Philip Vella / Mark Amaira)

10th Place: Ina Robinich - Stay (Andrew Zahra / Rita Pace)

09th Place: Janice Mangion - Ain't My Kind of Love (Mark Scicluna)

08th Place: Kylie Coleiro - Day After Day (Andrew Zammit / Joe Julian Farrugia)

07th Place: Luisana Bartolo - Silver Rain (Philip Vella / Luisana Bartolo)

06th Place: Joanna Attard - Hysterical (Elton Zarb / Rita Pace)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

05th Place: minik ft. Siconix - Let's Party (Siconix)

04th Place: Joseph Refalo - Queen of My Heart (Miriam Christine / Gerard James Borg)

03rd Place: Izzy - Ladies Night (Elton Zarb / Muxu)

02nd Place: Petra - Forget My Name (Heathcliffe Balzan / Natasha Turner)

01st Place: Floren - Thank You (Elton Zarb / Rita Pace)

As one could note, the songs that ranked in the top five are quite different from each other because there is a mixture of r'n'b, pop, ballads and dance and therefore it shows that the varying degrees from which they were coming from ultimately worked but it was Floren and Petra who had the lead as soon as their votes came getting their respective positions without any ties. In third place, there was a tie which was divided as stated above by the highest number of marks given and then by our head judge and that is how the result was obtained. On behalf of the whole team at ESCflashmalta, we would like to wish all of the competitors the very best of luck in this years' competition being held on the 1st August at an exclusive venue will be revealed in due time actually. Keep following our web portal for the latest news about the Malta Summer Hit Song Contest being aired on ONE Television and hosted by Deo Grech and Natius Farrugia.
