Ike and Kaya My Home Malta Junior Eurovision 2021

Six years have passed since Malta took home its last Junior Eurovision trophy. Now, up-and-coming duo Ike and Kaya have their hearts set on glory for the island nation. Ike and Kaya will sing “My Home” for Malta at Junior Eurovision 2021.

Malta in Junior Eurovision 2021: Ike and Kaya “My Home”

Ike Mizzi and Kaya Gouder Curmi, both just 11 years old, rose to fame after competing in the 2020 series of Malta’s Got Talent where they placed fourth in the grand final.

Ike has been involved with the music industry for around two years. Meanwhile, Kaya says music has been her passion since she was five years old.

Kaya previously competed in Malta Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2020 with her song “Made of Stars” — no connection to Israel’s Eurovision 2016 entry from Hovi Star. She also competed in Sanremo Junior, placing first in her category.

The duo earned the right to represent their country in Paris after winning the Malta Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2021 national final. They will sing “My Home” in the grand final at La Seine Musicale.


What do the “My Home” lyrics mean?

“My Home” is a romantic ballad-come-pop song in a style akin to some of Disney’s most-loved musical numbers — or perhaps even a certain Will Ferrel Netflix favourite. Kaya takes the lead vocal, while Ike comes in with a rap on the second verse.

The lyrics describe the excitement of being young and in love for the first time. As Kaya belts out her feelings, she sings of finding comfort in her blossoming romance, declaring: “when I’m with you it feels like home”.

Ike’s rap is reminiscent of Justin Bieber’s early discography. He portrays a timid head-over-heels in love character, discovering these feelings for the first time: “I got feelings that I ain’t never really felt in my life”.

Ike and Kaya’s track features the songwriting talents of Owen Leuellen, who finished as first runner-up to Michela Pace on The X Factor Malta in 2019.

“My Home” lyrics — Ike and Kaya (Malta JESC 2021)

Written and composed by: Cyprian Cassar, Owen Leuellen and MUXU

English text

We’re floating high above the clouds
Past Jupiter, we won’t look down
It feels like magic levitate ’til we fly higher

Don’t tell me it’s not real just ’cause we’re young
We’ll make it but we won’t go past the stars

Where do we go if we keep dreaming
What if our world would change today
Where do we go
We’re never alone

Maybe if we just keep on believing
Maybe we can live in a fairytale
Where do we go
When I’m with you it feels like home

When I’m with you it feels like home

They say home is where the heart is but you stole mine
When you came in my life it’s like I found me a gold mine
You can look me in my eyes when you hold my hand
But you won’t understand I got feelings that

I ain’t never really felt in my life
So I started giving hints tryna show you
I’m the one for you so we can do this right
So come on, step closer let me hold you

Where do we go if we keep dreaming (Where do we go)
What if our world would change today (Yeah)
Where do we go
We’re never alone

Maybe if we just keep on believing (Keep on believing)
Maybe we can live in a fairytale
Where do we go

I will never let you be alone

We’re never alone

Where do we go if we keep dreaming
What if our world would change today (Yeah I’m always beside you)
Where do we go (Where do we go now)
‘Cause you feel like home

Maybe if we just keep on believing
Maybe we can live in a fairytale (I will never let you be alone)
Where do we go
‘Cause when I’m with you it feels like home

When I’m with you it always feels like home
Ain’t nothing to hide now the cover is blown
Now it’s all out and I’ve seen enough
To know what I’m looking at is but a seed of love

I see faith and I see our future in your eyes

Never alone
You are my home

A cute and promising song but needing a revamp, the performers are very talented, this little rapper is a future star he is so good, but I admit some of the lyrics are not really age appropriate which is something I don’t really like in a jesc song. It’s like the little girl from Russia saying “come to me” (like Maruv said), her song is nice but these lyrics disturb me.
But good luck Malta, you could do very well with your revamped version and some lyrics changes because the right bases are already present.

Wiwibloggs, it is the 3rd time I tell you but unfortunately you didn’t see. Ofenbach, the French DJs who made a song, “Paradise” with Benjamin Ingrosso, will open the Junior Eurovision in Paris. It is confirmed by France TV.

“So I started giving hints tryna show you
I’m the one for you so we can do this right.” (these are lyrics from the song).
At eleven? REALLY??
Is this supposed to be an “original song” written for jesc?

Talking about the song solely: I don’t think it’s suitable for 11-year olds or younger or slightly older. It can be sung by older people and sound ok-ish/”appropriate” (quality of lyrics is disputable however, to each their own) but not by kids. “Romantic crushes” at a young age are kind of common but not necessarily “safe” depending on other factors which I shall not dwelve into now. “So I started giving hints tryna show you I’m the one for you so we can do this right.” (these are lyrics from the song).

Do you think we will ever see two eleven-year-old boys or two eleven-year-old girls sing a song like this to each other? I doubt it.

It’s a solid entry. Not ground-breaking by any means, but it’s not as awful as some people suggest.

wasn’t there a rule in the 00s that no adults could be involved in the songwriting process ? that was back when there was a russian supervisor. most of the jesc songs i heard from recent years sound like they might as well be sung by adults… i can’t blame those countries that say they no longer participate in jesc bc it’s not about the children anymore.

They don’t have talented songwriters, as simple as that. It can’t be THAT hard tho.

we can discuss the lyrics of the song and yes ….they are not age-appropriate in some cases ….but do you want songs like Bzz (noise of the bees) Georgia 2008?
That is for kids age 2-8 and not for pre-teens and teens.

the target audience for jesc is literally kids, i would never listen to a song like bzz but at the same time it doesn’t bother me bc it’s appropriate for the show

They start them when they’re young. They don’t know there’s time for the grown up stuff. And grown ups should know better. And write age appropriate songs! EBU doesn’t take this JESC thing seriously.

Don’t tell them it’s not real because they’re eleven. They’ll make it, but they won’t go past the stars.
