On Saturday, the four finalists of X Factor Malta will battle it out to win the talent show. But stakes are high — the winner will also go on to represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. Earlier this week, we asked wiwibloggs readers who you thought should get the ticket to Rotterdam — and the winner was loud and clear.
Destiny Chukunyere was the overwhelming favourite, with 65.01% of the vote. She’s already delivered victory to Malta at Junior Eurovision but now wiwibloggs readers think she’s the performer who could give Malta their very first Eurovision Song Contest win.
In second place was the girl group F.A.I.T.H. They earned 16.56% of the vote. The five-piece group have a huge fan following in Malta and seem poised for a career outside the X Factor. But could this also see them representing Malta at Eurovision?
Justine Shorfid was in third place with 11.7% of the vote. Like Destiny, Justine has a strong pop-soul voice, but she brings an edgier style to her performances. Justine is only 16 years old and regardless of the X Factor Malta 2020 results, we suspect this won’t be the last audiences will hear of her.
In last place is Kyle Cutajar with just 6.73% of the vote. He has a smooth vocal style, giving him a classic cabaret flavour. But even though he’s the least popular act among wiwibloggs readers, there’s no doubt that Kyle earned his place in the grand final.
