The calendar on Eurovision.tv shows that Destiny will be releasing her Eurovision 2021 entry on Monday, March 15th at 17:00CET. The song will represent Malta at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest.
Former Junior Eurovision winner Destiny Chukunyere was selected to represent Malta internally by the broadcaster PBS. She was set to represent the country already in 2020, after winning The X Factor Malta, before the contest was cancelled. Her song last year, “All Of My Love”, was written by Bernarda Brunović, Borislav Milanov, Sebastian Arman, Dag Lundberg, Joacim Persson and Cesár Sampson.
It’s still not known, what is the title of the song Destiny will represent Malta with at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. We don’t have to wait for long though, as the song is set to be released on Monday, March 15th at 17:00CET, according to the calendar on Eurovision.tv.
Malta in the Eurovision Song Contest
Malta first participated in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1971 with Joe Grech and his song, “Marija I-Maltija”, which finished in last place with 52 points. They also finished last on their second attempt in the contest in 1972. After a third appearance in 1975, Malta withdrew from the contest until 1991, when they returned and finished in sixth place with 106 points.
Since their return in 1991, Malta has finished in the top three on four occasions – Mary Spiteri with “Little Child” in 1992 and Chiara with “The One That I Love” in 1998 which both finished in third place, and also Ira Losco with “7th Wonder” in 2002 and Chiara with “Angel” in 2005, which both finished in second place. However, Malta has not yet won the Eurovision Song Contest.
