At just 14-years-old Malta’s singing superstar Destiny Chukunyere will go head to head against seven other acts in Britain’s Got Talent’s second semi-final broadcasting live tonight.
The little diva will be fighting for one of two slots available for Friday’s final. The decision is entirely up to the British public who will call in to vote, with results airing later tonight. As far as Youtube views go, Destiny’s performance has a commendable 724,000 views, but that still only puts her one step above the lowest view count of the evening. The betting odds are a little more in her favour placing her fifth on the night.
Destiny secured her place in the semi-final (and in the hearts of hundreds of thousands of viewers) with her incredible cover of Aretha Franklin’s Think.
But now is when things get cut-throat, and while Destiny may be Snapchatting away with some of the performers in the show, she needs to out-perform six of the following acts to make Friday’s big show. Here’s who she is up against.
1. Matt Edwards – magician
The comedian and performer impressed Ant and Dec so much he got one of the coveted Golden Buzzers.
2. Harry Gardner – singer
Performing an emotional tribute to his now-late grandmother, Harry sailed through to the semis.
3. Issy Simpson – magician
The youngest performer of the night, Issy is just eight years old.
4. Dizzy Twilight – DJ
AKA Christine Tew, this 65-year-old DJ turned the party way up.
5. Leah Barniville – singer
Another young star in the making, Leah is an opera singer extraordinaire.
6. Grace and Ali – dancers
This talented duo are a real life couple, and have some impressive and emotional moves.
7. Taptastic – dancers
This tap group may have received two red buzzers during their audition, but they’re ready to keep fighting for their place in the final.
The live show airs tonight at 8:30pm Malta time on ITV, with the results show starting two hours later at around 10:30pm.
Destiny, you’ve got this! We’re all supporting you and cannot wait to see you in the final.
