Malta is in once again!
Malta has confirmed that they will be in JESC 2015, brilliant! They’ll choose on July 11th!
How it will work is: People can submit songs to PBS and a jury will select 20 songs (1 song per person). These 20 finalists will perform live on stage (no live backings). A jury made up of three people (chosen by PBS) will judge them live. There will also be televoting which is worth 25% of the vote. Interestingly they say “The selection of the song to be performed during JESC in Sofia will be chosen by PBS in consultation with the artist or his/her representative. The song selected for JESC will not be the same song which was performed by the artist/s in the MJESC.” Meaning that they will basically choose a singer based just on voice and then assign them a song.
Candidates between the age of 10 and 15 by 21 November 2015 need to be Maltese nationals or residents. There can be up to six persons on stage. The song may be original or a cover version in Maltese or English and it must be sung live during the rehearsals and the final show.
Submissions for participation shall be received at PBS Creativity Hub in Gwardamangia on 19th June 2015 between 09:00 and 16:00. The participation form must include a CD including a full playback version of the participating song, together with a backing track including backing vocals (but excluding the main voice). The participation fee is €150 per application.
