JESC 2015: Destiny Chukunyere Triumphs for Malta


Garnering a total of 185 points, Destiny Chukunyere from Malta has been crowned the winner of the 13th edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, following an exceptional performance of “Not My Soul”, an original song composed by Elton Zarb to the lyrics of Matthew “Muxu” Mercieca.

This is Malta’s second victory in three years, having previously finished in 1st place with “The Start”, also composed by Elton Zarb to the lyrics of Matthew “Muxu” Mercieca with vocals provided by Gaia Cauchi. What makes this victory even more special though is that Destiny has managed to set the record for the most accumulated points, as had been set by Maria Isabel at the 2004 Junior Eurovision Song Contest!

In second place was Mika from Armenia whose “Love” garnered 176 points, whilst Lina from Slovenia finished in third place with 112 points following a beautiful performance of “Prva ljubezen”. Below you could have a look at the full ranking;
