14-year-old Destiny Chukunyere wowed on Britain's Got Talent at the auditions.

But it wasn't her first show.


Destiny is a 14 year old school girl from Malta who loves soul and gospel and started singing four years ago in school.

Since then she's already enjoyed some success; she previously entered and won the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

Destiny took part in the 2015 competition for Malta with Not My Soul, winning a total of 185 points to top the scoreboard.

The performance won Destiny an army of fans, with one commenting after her win: "This is the most deserved victory in the history of Junior Eurovision Song Contest !"

Another agreed: "a new star is born. i want to see her to the adult's song contest in the future!"


Destiny added to those fans this month as she appearance on BGT.

"I came to Britain's Got Talent because I would love to perform for the British Royal Family, it'd be an honour for me," Destiny said on Saturday evening's episode.

"My dream is to win, who knows, maybe it'll change my life," added the teenager.

On stage Destiny said she was "excited but nervous" as she named the likes of Beyonce and Aretha Franklin as her inspiration.

And it was an Aretha track that Destiny took on for her audition, belting out Think for the panel.

Alesha Dixon declared: "For me that is a knockout. That is one of the hardest songs to sing, and you are 14 and you killed it!"

David Walliams reacted: "What happened to the shy 14 year old girl from Malta?!"

And Simon Cowell concluded: "Destiny, I've been waiting for someone to come out who we think could be a star and guess who it is? You have soul."

With four yeses, Destiny sailed through to the next round and is now in the live shows.

But can she make the final?
