Malta's Eurovision Divas And Their Long-Lost Doubles

Giving Aretha and Mariah a run for their money!

Ira

1. Destiny Chukunyere // Aretha Franklin

Destiny

This young superstar is going straight to the top. She's already dominated the Juniour Eurovision, and with a voice like that there's absolutely no stopping her. Add to that her incredible stage presence and volumes of sassitude and you've got yourself an Aretha in the making!

Song Destiny may as well have sung: Natural Woman

2. Mary Spiteri // Barbra Streisand

Mary

The poise, the tone, the incredible voice coupled with perfect timing - it's all there. Add to that the ability to portray vulnerability and strength in a 3 minute song and you've got the main reason this match is so perfect.

Song Mary Spiteri may as well have sung: Tell Him

3. Pamela Bezzina // Cher

Pamela

Pamela is an incredible talent, and has vocal range for days - but she's also got an incredibly unique tone to her voice that, when she's not belting incredible notes, has a deep husk to it that's just perfect. (You're gonna want to skip to 3:07 on the video below).

Song Pamela may as well have sung: Piu Che Puoi

4. Claudia Faniello // Christina Aguilera

Claudia

The voice, the presence, the growls... the voice. It's all there and it's a perfect match. She's got the brunette vibes from the 'fighter' era with the ballads from Burlesque.

Song Claudia may as well have sung: Bound To You

5. Debbie Scerri // Kate Bush

Debbie

Looks aside, Debbie's songs have a melodic way of telling an interesting (if slightly confusing) story - a technique aced by the legendary Kate Bush.

Song Debbi Scerri may as well have sung: Cloudbusting

6. Morena // Cascada

Morena

Have yourself a hearty dose of Eurotrash... err Europop, my bad. Add to that a pair of knee-high boots and a song you're never getting out of your head for weeks and you have every Cascada song/video combination ever.

Song Morena may as well have sung: Everytime We Touch

7. Ira Losco // Mariah Carey

Ira

While not being entirely on par vocally (let's be real here, who's gonna touch those five octaves?) Ira's latest performance at the Eurovision saw her looking (and strutting) more and more like the Queen Diva herself. 

The cleavage, the skyscraper heels and the bedazzled dress - she almost didn't need the high, rosy cheekbones to complete the look.

Song Ira may as well have sung: Fantasy

8. Claudette Pace // Liza Minnelli

Claudette

There's very little to add to this comparison - Desire could very easily have been a cover of one of Liza's classics. Just look at those dance moves combined with the phrasing of the lyrics!

Song Claudette may as well have sung: New York, New York

9. Chiara... no one

Seriously...

Don't even try.
