Some of the highlights on the programme was a singing contest known as Opportunity 2, which was a concept created in collaboration with Malta Song Board.

This allowed us to see alot of new faces, with new songs from Maltese Authors and composers. Another highlight was Show Me You Can Dance which was a dance contest with 18 participants, who passed through 20 weeks of tough dance training, and a full on schedule working alongside some of Malta’s top dance trainers such as Felix Busuttil, Justin Roy Barker and Pippa Gee Roberts. Each contestant was judged weekly with a number of grand prizes in the end.
