Malta's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest is ‘Je Me Casse’ and will be performed by Destiny at the first Semi-Final on Tuesday 18 May.
Early on in the process, Team Destiny decided that this year they were on a mission to deliver a dance floor filler with an instant feel good factor. Clap-back banger Je Me Casse was written and composed by Malin Christin, Amanuel Dermont, Nicklas Eklund and Pete Barringer.
In 2015, Destiny was selected to represent Malta at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Bulgaria, which she ended up winning with her track Not My Soul. Subsequently, she was also invited as a guest at the Eurovision Song Contest finals in 2016.
As Destiny matured, so too did her soulful voice, making her the vocal powerhouse she is today. She’s managed to showcase her abilities on many stages, including her recent international success performing on Britain’s Got Talent.
A milestone for the singer was winning X Factor Malta, after having been mentored by Eurovision legend Ira Losco. But her dream has always been to represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest.
Destiny says that her five biggest musical idols are: Lizzo, Beyonce, Aretha Franklin, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion.
Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest
Malta, one of the smallest countries in the Eurovision Song Contest, joined the competition in 1971.
The island nation has an impressive Eurovision record, finishing third behind the UK and Ireland in 1992 and again in 1998 despite nearly winning the entire competition in one of the closest voting sequences ever. Chiara represented Malta that year with the song The One That I Love.
In 2002, Ira Losco secured Malta's best ever result, finishing second for Malta with the song 7th Wonder - a record equalled by Chiara when she returned with the song Angel in 2005.
Can Destiny secure that first Maltese win?
