Ah, young love. If there’s anything even sweeter and guaranteed to win everyone over, it’s a thousands-strong fanbase. One of Malta’s youngest starlets and her X Factor UK love interest just happen to have both.
After romantically surprising Gaia by flying down to Malta for her Sweet Sixteenth, X Factor UK finalist Jon Guelas spent the rest of the last couple of days updating his Instagram stories with photos and clips featuring the Maltese starlet. And while they were all adorable AF, the couple’s impromptu duet definitely took the cute cake.
The two young stars’ Instagram followers (tallying up to a combined total of over 70k) got treated to an acapella cover of One Direction’s popular hit Perfect. And for all those thousands of people religiously following Jon and Gaia’s adventures over the last couple of weeks, it really was perfect.
Gaia Cauchi has come a long way since winning the 2013 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, impressing the X Factor UK judging panel (yep, that includes Robbie Williams and Simon Cowell!) and making it all the way to LA with girl group Sweet Sense for the Judges’ Houses round. And while the teenage starlet didn’t make it to X Factor UK’s final stages, she took home a lot of beautiful memories and friendships.
Eighteen-year-old Guelas was recently eliminated in the final round of X Factor UK with the boyband United Vibe. Touted as a potential follow-up to previous supergroup One Direction, United Vibe have already won the hearts of thousands around the world… but it was only Malta’s own Gaia who seems to have managed to win Guela’s affection.
