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.
Results: Who is your favourite act to win X Factor Malta – and represent Malta at Eurovision 2020?
- Destiny Chukunyere 65.01% (589 votes)
- F.A.I.T.H 16.56% (150 votes)
- Justine Shorfid 11.7% (106 votes)
- Kyle Cutajar 6.73% (61 votes)
The grand final of the X Factor Malta will screen this Saturday (a change from the usual Sunday night show) at 21:00 CET. It is not known if the acts will perform their potential Eurovision entries at the grand final, or whether the winner will have their song internally selected at a later stage.
What do you think? Is Destiny the best pick for Malta this year? Tell us your thoughts below!
Destiny will win, but they need to find a song that fits her in order to avoid Michela’s case last year: Great voice, song not for her
Maybe will Kyle come 2nd and surprise the polls again. Oops, I have just said that…. HEY I ONLY SAID MAYBE?!
This is all rigged, look at the calendar. They would choose just their representant just one month before the deadline without a song ? Last year Michela around 10th february was already in Vienna to record the chosen song. And they want us to believe this year that thay will have to choose a song about mid-february then going to record it, produce it then going to make a video clip. All that in less than 4 weeks ?? Destiny has already been chosen by the producers, the song is already chosen and rehearsed and maybe even already recorded in… Read more »
Stefania Liberakakis, Greece (JESC 2016) ——>>> check
Destiny Chukunyere, Malta (JESC 2015) ——->> to be announced
Lina Kuduzovic, Slovenia (JESC 2015) ————->> to be announced
and one guy from JESC 2010 (but I don’t remember his name)
ESC 2020 has many strong former JESC-singers. In 2021 I hope Russia will send Polina Bogusevich (winner JESC 2017) or Sofia Fisenko (JESC 2016 Water of Life) and Belarus should send Helena Meraaí (JESC 2017). That would be a dream.
The one male participant from #JESC2010 is from Armenia.
8 february will they sing with the eurovision’s songs?? or at least with the songs that were asked to songwriters ???
Who was bottom three in the semi and saved ?
There were 6 semi-finalists left. Yazmine & James received the lowest votes in the first round and thus were eleminated immediately. Then in the secound round named the Super Sing-Off, the remianing 5 acts sang again and this time it was Bloodline who had the lowest votes and thus were elemintaed. The judges had no say in this.
Ah , thanks for the clarification
She’s one of those people who when they smile automatically make you smile, too. Might be put to good use in her Eurovision performance, depending on the song.
I would love to see FAITH triumphing because it will be something different and exciting for Malta and for Eurovision in general but in the end I think the public will root for Destiny and not because she had won the JESC or because she’s famous in Malta…but because she’s truly the best vocalist in the competition.
Im not a fan of destiny chunkyere her style is quite predictable
It would be awesome if Destiny or F.A.I.T.H represent Malta ……….but as always…….the song and the staging is a big factor. If the song is not good then Destiny etc. could sing like an angel and Malta would nonetheless flop .
The Grand Finale will be intense ! Destiny is my winner but the others are strong contenders too. I especially love Faith.
