Tonight the grand final of the X Factor Malta will take place. The winner won’t just be Malta’s first X Factor champion — they will also represent Malta at Eurovision 2019. But who should win? We asked wiwibloggs readers to vote for your favourite act. Let’s take a look at the results!
Michela Pace topped the poll, picking up 51.31% of the vote. Michaela is a 17-year-old from the island of Gozo. From her first audition, she established herself as one to watch, with her rich, expressive vocals.
In second place is the other remaining singer from the Girls category, Nicole Frendo. She picked up 20.99% of the vote. Nicole is 16 years old and is another act who has proven to be a stand-out right from her first audition. Her specialty is big dramatic ballads.
Singer/rapper Owen Leuellen takes third place, with 16.21% of the vote. While he narrowly missed elimination last week, Owen brings a point of difference to the contest with his unique style. During the audition and Bootcamp stage, he performed his own heartfelt raps, but during the live shows he also demonstrated a talent for covering hip hop classics.
In fourth place is former MESC star Petra. She might last in the poll, but with 11.48% of the vote, she still has clear fan support. Petra is a familiar face from Malta’s national final, having previously competed five times, including last year. She’s proved herself to be a hardworking and determined singer with strong soul vocals.
The four acts will compete tonight in the grand final of the X Factor Malta. It is not yet known if the acts will perform potential Eurovision entries at the grand final, or whether the winner will have their song internally selected at a later stage.
The grand final of X Factor Malta screens tonight at 20.50 CET on Television Malta.
