Malta’s Eurovision fans are starting to worry about Destiny’s performance after her odds dropped to second place following her first rehearsal and the reveal of her hot-pink outfit.
Destiny’s look was loved and hated in equal measure, with some saying it was a great representation of the song’s empowering message and others saying it looked tacky and cheap.
Many commented about the fact that her knee-high boots started to fall unevenly during the performance and that she did not look comfortable in the outfit. Others remarked on the fringe of her cowgirl-inspired top.
Malta has been top of the Eurovision odds for months now, climbing well above Switzerland and France in recent days.
But barely hours after Destiny’s first rehearsal, France suddenly caught up and is now tipped to beat Malta.
Lovin Malta reached out to a spokesman for the production team for their reaction.
“This is a rehearsal in all senses, the first one done in Rotterdam. The reactions are based on what one has seen in this first rehearsal A clip on YouTube that does not reflect the whole performance,” said Mark Grech, without committing on whether this was intended as the final outfit.
Malta’s expectations have never been higher for Eurovision, so the pressure is on for Destiny and her team.
Whatever the case, her undisputed vocal talents are expected to shine through.
If Destiny wins, she will be the first contestant to win both the Eurovision and the Junior Eurovision.
What do you think of the outfit?
