Following the cancellation of Eurovision last year, the majority of the class of 2020 received the comeback ticket to sing again at Eurovision 2021. A massive 26 artists will return to represent their countries at Eurovision 2021. But as per the standard Eurovision rules, they’ve all got new songs.
Thus, comparisons to their previous entries are inevitable. So, we want to hear from our readers. We’re running a series of polls to ask — do you prefer the returning artists’ 2020 or 2021 songs?
Today, we’re shining a light on Malta. In 2020, Destiny was set to take “All Of My Love” to Rotterdam. This year, she’ll be singing “Je Me Casse” at Eurovision 2021. But which song is your favourite? Vote in our poll now!
Scroll down to vote in our poll.
“All Of My Love” (Malta 2020)
Having won Junior Eurovision in 2015, Destiny was set to appear at Eurovision in 2020. She earned the ticket after winning X Factor Malta. Her entry, “All Of My Love”, was then internally selected. It continued on from the soul-pop Destiny delivered at Junior Eurovision and it showcased her rich vocal talent.
The Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — awarded “All Of My Love” an impressive score of 8.1/10 (the second highest score of the year). In his review of the song, wiwiblogger Sebastian said:
“The star of this song is Destiny. You could give the teenage superstar any lemon of a song, and she’ll squeeze every last drop into lemonade. That’s what “All of My Love” is – it’s unique and a new sound in this year of Eurovision, but it would slide into the catalogue of a Sigala or Rudimental album without offering any point of difference. I would have loved to have seen this live on stage, where it would have simply excelled. And that’s because of the song’s big X-factor – Destiny, a future queen of soul.”
“Je Me Casse” (Malta 2021)
Malta made sure to give Destiny her time on the Eurovision stage and internally selected her for the 2021 contest. This year, the Maltese star is singing “Je Me Casse”. A favourite with the bookies, the song has a Charleston/swing feel to it.
The song gets its title from French slang. “Je me casse” — literally meaning “I break” — is a French saying used when making a hasty exit, similar to “I gotta go” or “I’m outta here”.
