Don’t Stop Me Now

This year the fourth series of the musical reality show Don’t Stop Me Now returns. It established some of the best talent in the country at present. This year Christine Haber is the show’s host. This will be part of the programme ‘Week & More’ with the presentation of Eileen Montesin and the participation of Mark Haber in the part of Uncle Morris with the humoristic touch. Besides ‘Don t Stop Me Now’, ‘Week & More’ will also consist of a candid camera with various politicians and interviews with the spouse or partner of Maltese personalities in various fields including television, radio and sports’ personalities.

This year 31 participants applied to be a part of Don’t Stop Me Now and they did so by submitting a video audition. In all, 16 finalists are chosen. All applicants are 15 years of age and over. With contrast to previous years, this time the singers will be split into four groups, each consisting of four singers. Two groups will participate in the programmes which are being aired between October and December while the other two groups will take part in the programmes which will air from January to March.

The winner of every part will then compete in the final so that the ‘Overall winner of ‘Don t Stop Me Now’ 2017-2018 will be established. During each programme two singers from each team will have the opportunity to sing a song related to a specific theme.

The jury will be composed of 4 members. Three resident jury members which are:- Moira Stafrace, Dj Toby Farrugia and Ray Mangion and the other member will be one of the contestants from the show’s previous editions who have achieved success in prestigious festivals and which have become household names with the Maltese public. These are Kurt Calleja, Franklin Calleja, Lyndsay Pace, Cherise Attard, Dario Bezzina, Ylenia Vella, Francesca Borg and Joseph Refalo. The jury’s duty is to award points after having watched the singers’ performances. In each programme the singer who gets the highest amount of points as well as the singer that gets the least amount of points will be announced. The latter will then have to challenge one of the singers who did not manage to make it through to the final round and it will be up to judges to decide who deserves to be a part of the competition that following week.

In every programme the group which manages to accumulate the most amount of points when putting together the points of the singers who would have performed that week, will be given the right to choose the theme of the following programme while also gaining 10 points. On the other hand , the group with the least amount of points that particular week will have to perform a song from a musical, choreographed by Alison White Dance studio and accompanied by Alison White’s dancers and it will then be up to Alison White herself to decide whether that particular group gains 5 points or not to try and make the discrepancy between the group points as minimal as possible.

This year the programme is offering the biggest and best prices yet! These include a photo shoot thanks to ‘The Fotografer’ Fgura, a Gig at ‘The Londoner British Pub’, a 500 Euro Voucher, which can be redeemed in cosmetic services thanks to Chic Med Aesthetic Clinics at Sky Parks , a hamper of CHI hair products, a trophy thanks to Mdina Glass, a custom-made outfit made by the local designer Gaetano, a musical theatre course which focuses on drama, singing and dancing thanks to Stagecoach Malta, a goodie bag worth of 200 Euros thanks to MaxFactor Malta and a 1000 Euro CASH.
