14-year-old Destiny Chukunyere will be hoping to wow again on Britain's Got Talent tonight.

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.

Earlier this month she stormed the BGT stage, winning four yeses from the judges.

"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 before her audition.

"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 semi-finals.

But can she make the final?


The teenager will be competing tonight against magician Matt Edwards, singer Harry Gardner, magician Issy Simpson, DJ Dizzy Twilight, singer Leah Barniville, dancers Grace & Ali and tappers Taptastik.

Britain's Got Talent 2017 is back this evening at 7:30PM on ITV with the results at 9:30PM.
