Malta’s Destiny released “Je me casse” — her song for Eurovision 2021 — on 15 March, shooting up the betting table and laying claim to her status as a Eurovision front-runner.  And now, one month later, she has performed the symphonic version of the song in front of the stunning Fort St. Elmo in Valletta.

“This was one of the greatest experiences in my Eurovision Song Contest journey so far,” she says in a statement. “The fact that I got to work closely with the iconic Malta Philharmonic Orchestra is in itself a great achievement but creating such a rendition and giving me and everyone a different side to ‘Je Me Casse’ gives me goosebumps. I hope people will enjoy this version as much as I enjoyed working on it.”

Destiny performs the symphonic version of ”Je Me Casse”

The acoustic performance of “Je Me Casse” takes place in a very special setting. Destiny performs at Fort St. Elmo, a historic bastion in Malta’s capital. Once a defence to hold back attacks from the Ottomans, it now offers unobstructed views of the glorious harbour and surrounding towns. It’s also home to the National War Museum.

During the performance, Destiny is accompanied by The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra. Its musicians wear masks and maintain social distance as the 18-year-old singer stands tall and proud. She wears a gorgeous dress that looks like it belongs on stage at the world’s great opera houses. It also seems to honour Malta with its gorgeous shade of red.

However, the setting isn’t the only thing that draws your attention. Destiny, who is currently number 1 among bookmakers, presents an impeccable version of her Eurovision song. Destiny is known for her powerful voice and her ability to hit those notes flawlessly. She more than lives up to expectations. The performance conveys Destiny’s message of empowerment and, as with the original, she brings just as much soul and power.

In a recent interview with Wiwibloggs, Destiny said she fell in love with ”Je Me Casse” at first listen. “I started believing in the song from day one. I was like, ‘I need to have this song.’ It literally describes me as a person, everything about me, it fits perfectly to Destiny,” she said. “If there’s true love in music, I fell in love once again.”

Destiny isn’t letting the pressure of the bookies get to her. In fact, the buzz inspires her to give it her all. “These things keep me going. Knowing that I have a nation supporting me and waiting for the day to arrive, I can’t wait to perform,” Destiny explained. “The positive reactions are helping me to work harder and deliver the best performance ever.”

What do you think of the symphonic version of ”Je Me Casse”? Let us know in the comment section down below!

Also very interesting: to make the acoustic version appealing they had to put this overproduction of string… it still amazes me how such a banal song is having all this clout… on her vocal strength and technique are indeed superb, but zero on real emotion

When I wrote my original post I wasn’t referring to you, it was very general. You took it personally and replied like I wrote it specifically at you. The comments ranged from perhaps legitimate criticism to the song or the singer, to how fat she is, how old she looks, how she’s buying her 4 million views on YouTube, and that Wiwibloggs writers are somehow giving her coverage favouritism. If you can’t see the vitriol you’re obviously blind to it.

The amount of negativity on Wiwibloggs is astounding. If Destiny gets 80% positive comments on YouTube and 20% negative ones, you can flip the percentages the other way round here.

Well, she can certainly sing. But to have this particular song in an orchestral setting is a bit ridiculous, it doesn’t have the emotional weight to be performed like this. On top of that, her stage presence seems a bit cold: more technique than feeling. I think she will be a jury favourite that gets killed in the televote.

All countries have their fans watching the video multiple times and liking it once. “It doesn’t take into account time of release ” The likes/view of popular videos decreases with time as fewer and fewer new viewers watch it .Malta was one of the last released songs.

Imma be honest, no offense, but I still don’t get a thing. I know I have a lack in understanding statistics, I’m not ashamed of that. But your statistics are still… statistics. It still doesn’t say anything about faking views and above all, as Naomi is unfaily claiming, any buying of views. You’re just assuming, making deductions from your stats, but they are just deduction, assumption and observations. Yet again, it still doesn’t prove anything. And they can’t be accurate if they’re not taking my case — and the other ones I’ve quoted earlier — into consideration. I’ve watched the… Read more »

Yep, we’re all volunteers. Some of us are experienced with media writing, others are enthusiastic amateurs.

I know at this time of year some fans get worried that their favourite artist isn’t getting enough coverage in fan blogs.

All 4 singers had more points from juries than televote. And sometimes to open final is privilege not disadvantage .
Amber semi final 84 points from juries, only 32 with televote
Ira final 137 from juries only 16 from televote
Claudia semi final, 55 with juries , 0 points from televote
Christabelle semi final 93 points with juries , only 8 from televote
Michaella final 87 points from juries , only 20 points from televote

Wiwibloggs gets articles by people who use their free time, if there would be something about everything every artist does, there would be like 3 pages of news every single day.

Since the writers have to do this “FREE”lance , they need not make a special article for just one country. Try to Treat all equally.

You can ask that question directly to Padraig since he’s in charge of the Daily Digest. And also to Esma since she’s the one to have written that article.

The video was released after he published the Daily Digest article. Maybe Esma wanted to publish this article cause she was interested in this subject and wanted to deal with it before an other wiwiblogger ? Just an assumption. No offense here.

We can only ask her the reasons she had for publishing this article in particular, while its subject could have indeed been clubbed with others.

How can someone have such a strong staging presence and such a good vocal technique at 18, amazing.
And the song couldnt be more jury friendly, clean, with swing elements, nice message. I just cant see any way in which Malta wont be #1 in the jury voting.
I suspect Destiny wont top the televote, but her televote score is not going to be low either.
At this point, its Maltas to lose.

The last entries Malta sent that were “made in Malta” were Claudia Faniello 2017, Amber 2015 and Firelight 2014. Only Firelight made it to the final and ended up bottom of the scoreboard anyway. Yes Christabelle in 2018 had a foreign production and she still did not manage to reach the final but that entry was a mess to begin with. While Malta can produce a lot of great singers I believe we are light years backwards when it comes to production of songs.

I can see your point and you’re not wrong, but if Destiny wins, is it really a victory for Malta or for Sweden’s music industry? Probably both, but still Destiny had an amazing entry for JESC 2015 and if I remember it was 100% made in Malta, so there is talent to be found! Anyway, it’s a good entry to go by and a possible contender for the win, stage shows really seem to be the big possibility to any entry this year so I wouldn’t call anyone a winner yet.

Fabulous. What’s great about this piece is that Destiny has the vocals to match an orchestra, which seems to elevate what she can do with the song here. She looks fierce and radiant. There’s a winking, sassy Bond-like quality to the performance. I think I might prefer this version, and could more easily see her winning if she performed Je Me Casse like this in May, but I think it’s more of a statement of intention. Whatever arrangement the song has, Destiny will Dami it up and slay the house down with a winning powerhouse vocal.
