Dav.Jr is this year’s undeniable X Factor Malta heartthrob. He’s got a guitar on his back and a coiffeured quiff that’d make Jedward green with envy. Oh, and last night, he received the only standing ovation in his category.
The swooning indie crooner took to stage, tackling the Beatles’ 1968 hit Blackbird, a rarity for the young songwriter who usually performs original tunes.
Not only was the majority of the audience up on their feet in awe by the end of it, but Alex went on to praise the contestant by calling him a “complete artist”. Ray, rumoured to be hiding lasers behind those glasses, removed his eyewear in shock as he ran to the crowds to drum up the hype.
Ray expanded on his comments from last night’s show on Vibe FM this morning, telling listeners that “Dav is a complete artist, he is an amazing singer, amazing guitar player and going to break a lot of girls hearts, to put it mildly”.
If you were looking for an artist to keep an eye on this year, look no further than Dav.Jr – he’s already got a fan group set up for every crazy fan (and Alex Alden, too, who professed her fandom in her comments).
