Destiny Chukunyere has already got the Junior Eurovision title on her belt, and now she can add another incredible moment to her list of achievements as the judges from one of the biggest talent competitions globally gush about our star.
“My dream is to win, who knows, maybe it’ll change my life,” says Destiny, who is “excited but nervous”.
The 14-year-old belted out a cover Aretha Franklin’s iconic Think on the talent show that aired tonight on ITV.
The world’s most famous talent scout Simon Cowell was so impressed with her performance he went on to explain “[the judges] have been waiting for someone to come out who we think could be a star, and guess who it is.”
He even went on to say “you’ve got soul”. Damn, from the man who’s paid to make people cry, those are some impressive compliments.
The other judges were also impressed with David Walliams incredulously asking “what happened to the shy, 14-year-old girl from Malta?” and Alesha Dickson calling it “a knockout”.
