Destiny will not get to participate in the official Eurovision opening this evening after a person tested positive for COVID-19 at her hotel.
The Maltese singer announced the sad news on Instagram, along with a photo of how she intended to show up at the Turquoise Carpet.
“This was my look for the Turquoise carpet and Eurovision opening this evening,” she said on Instagram. “Unfortunately enough, due to Covid 19 restrictions and protocols I can’t participate as another case has been detected in our hotel.”
“I am safe but following protocols remains the priority for all of us.”
The Eurovision Song Contest’s official Instagram account reacted to Destiny’s post by saying they’ll miss her at the event.
Destiny is set to take part in the first Eurovision semi-final this Tuesday, with bookmakers placing her as the favourite to win. If she qualifies, she will represent Malta at the grand final on Saturday.
