The UK’s show, from former British Musical Fireworks Champions Sirotechnics Fireworks, came out the winners. Their award was presented by Deputy Mayor and president of the Jury André Campana, and Mélanie Flachaire, delegate to Espace Léo Ferré. Spain was declared second place, Lithuania was third, followed by Ukraine.
The competition focused on a combination of pyrotechnics and music, evoking emotion as well as excitement from the crowds. Some of the world’s best loved rock anthems were played whilst each country’s representative (one per week) put on a show to compliment the musical repertoire.
Even though the winner has been chosen by a jury, internet users are still invited to vote for their favourite. A special website set up by the town hall, www.monaco-feuxdartifice.mc, allows everyone to relive each spectacular moment and vote for who they believe was the best. The winner will be chosen by the team with the most number of points received.
