Malta: Voting for OGAE Video Contest 2013 Begins

Rate this item
(1 Vote)

OGAE Malta, the local representative committee within the international fan club of the Eurovision Song Contest has decided to open the selection for the annual OGAE Video Contest to the general public in a bid to make sure that the chosen entry is one which receives the full backing from everyone, something that has not always been the case. Last year, it was Italy who were winners of the competition with the track E' L'Amore Che Conta performed by Giorgia. Malta has never triumphed within the competition but has managed a sixth place finish on two occasions, first time round in 2005 with video for the song I'm In Love Again by Ira Losco and second time round in 2006 with the video for the track Love On The Radio sung by Fabrizio Faniello.

On the 15th August 2014, the voting officially commences with the public having the opportunity to select their favourite music video from a selection of ten (10) songs which OGAE Malta have internally selected amongst their members. As has already been noted in a previous article, it was impossible to shortlist the music video for the track Tomorrow co-written by Boris Cezek and Dean Muscat with vocals provided by Gianluca because entries from the Eurovision Song Contest are prohibited for taking part. Despite this particular inconvience, the list of music videos shortlisted feature artists from the whole spectrum of the local music scene including former Eurovision Song Contest representative; Ira Losco as well as national final participants; Kelly Schembri and Davinia Pace.

The Person I Am - Ira Losco

Sinners - Lauren Aquilina

Indecisive - Cryptic Street

I'd Rather Die - Carrie Haber

Sweet Sister - Chris & Cheryl

You are My Home - Davinia

In Time - Yews

What I'd Give - Ira Losco

Strip Search - Honorebel ft Kelly Schembri & Stephen Davids

Fools - Lauren Aquilina

Just above, you could watch the videos of the competing entries in an individual manner yet the organisers have also prepared a playlist for those who wish to view them all at one go. When a decision has been made, you should send your votes in 'Eurovision Format' to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. till the 15th September 2013. It is important to denote that each person has one vote and cannot make alterations to the vote after it has been sent. Make sure to include your name, surname and country of origin within the email. The editorial board gladly support this brand new venture organised by OGAE Malta because it increases transparency and also gives the public the right to decide on something which will still represent the nation.
