Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza 2015
As has become customary, Media.Link Communications held a press conference to launch the 24th Edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, spearheaded by Charles Stroud as the new Chairman, whilst being flanked by Sandra Grech, Clarissa Ellul and Noel D'Amato. A full copy of the regulations as well as the applications may be obtained through MaltaRightNow, for both KKI 2015 and for KKI Jr 2015. Another new regulation is that every artist is limited to the submission of only 6 prospective entries, noting that he may only perform 1 song during the final night.
Due to the negative impact brought about by the rules and regulations presented for the 24th edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, with worthy songs such as Ma Tintefix sung by Neville Refalo, Kastelli Fl-Arja sung by Gloriana Arpa Belli and Int sung by Laura Bruno left out of the final selection of 20 finalists, the organising committee thought it best to return to the original method of selection whereas it will be the professional jury who will pick those who will compete in the final night, and as a result, 20 finalists will be chosen from the judging phase. Once more tele-voting will be applied only during the final, and will have merit as a stand-alone award.
The important dates for the KKI 2015 was the Submission: 17 July, 2015 (till 7 pm), while 1st Eliminatory Phase: 18 July, 2015 with (CD) and the 2nd Eliminatory Phase: 25 July 2015 singing (Live)
