The Eurovision 2021 playlist is nearly complete, with just a few countries left to reveal their songs for Rotterdam. Amidst the final few is the island nation of Malta — whose broadcaster TVM has been very quiet about its plans for Eurovision 2021. But finally, we have a date. Junior Eurovision 2015 champion Destiny will release her song for Rotterdam this coming Monday 15 March at 17:00 CET.
Malta’s Eurovision 2021 song coming on 15 March
Often, there’s a plethora of glorious fanfare and countless teasers in the days surrounding a Eurovision song release. But Destiny and TVM remained somewhat quiet about their song reveal. Destiny herself is yet to release any teasers or official promotion, only confirming the news by sharing the posts of fans on her Instagram story.
However, eager-eyed Eurovision fans have been sleuthing. And some think they might have found a clue about Destiny’s Eurovision 2021 song.
This past Monday, the “All of My Love” singer took to Instagram to celebrate International Women’s Day, posting a series of photos featuring the women who inspire her. One of the photos features the caption “ladies, if you feel like flaunting tonight, it’s alright” — which some fans speculated could be a lyric from Malta’s Eurovision 2021 song.

Little is known about Malta’s selection process for 2021. Back in October 2020, Maltese broadcaster TVM opened submissions to find Destiny’s song for Rotterdam. But since then, they’ve remained hush.
For now, we’ll have to wait and see what Destiny delivers. Is Malta #DestinedForGreatness?
Destiny at Eurovision and beyond
Destiny is one of the biggest names in Malta’s music scene. She first found fame in 2015 after winning Junior Eurovision with her song “Not My Soul”. Then in 2017, she competed in the 11th series of Britain’s Got Talent, reaching the semi-finals. As well, she provided backing vocals for Malta’s Michela at Eurovision 2019.
Last year, Destiny won the second series of The X Factor Malta and earned the right to represent her country at Eurovision 2020. There, she was set to sing the gospel-pop anthem “All of My Love”. But soon after she revealed her track, the contest was cancelled. TVM later confirmed that Destiny would once again receive the Maltese ticket to Rotterdam.
