A few minutes ago the second live show of X-Factor Malta has taken place. Two candidates were eliminated while eight hopefuls remain in the race to wave the country’s flag at Eurovision 2020.
Following last week’s procedure, candidates were divided into four groups, each of which assigned to a jury member:
- Girls (Ira Losco): Justine Shorfid, Destiny Chukunyere and Jasmine Abela
- Boys (Ray Mercieca): Kyle Cutajar, Karl Schembri and Dav. Jr.
- Over 25s (Alexandra Alden): Celine Agius
- Groups (Howard Keith Debono): Yazmin and James, FAITH and Bloodline
As in the first show, the 7 most voted acts qualified for the next week’s show after the first voting round:
- Justine Shorfid
- Destiny Chukunyere
- Celine Agius
- Kyle Cutajar
- Karl Schembri
Then, it was announced that the act with the least amount of votes was Jasmine Abela, so he was automatically eliminated. A sing-off between Dav. Jr. and Yazmin & James later determined the last qualifier. This decision was up to the jury panel, which eliminated Dav. Jr. That means Yazmin & James made it through to the next show of X-Factor Malta.
