Just like that – the first edition of Malta’s Got Talent came to an end tonight as the final nine acts battled it out on the MFCC stage until it boiled down to the televote!
We saw traditional Maltese folk, circus acts, precision movement, dancing, singing, rap, and fireworks too!
But, as the televoting closed, after another ad break, and a guest performance by Destiny, who got to show us what her Eurovision performance could have sounded like, MGT host revealed the top three acts which, in no particular order were, Concept of Movement, Jomike & Lydon, and Ria Gauci.
FINALLY, Malta chose it’s first Malta’s Got Talent Winner! Jomike and Lydon won the first edition of MGT with their traditional Maltese Makkjetti!
The duo were also the chosen Golden Buzzer act of host Gordon Bonello, who couldn’t hold his excitement at the result.
Visibily emotional, Jomike thanked all the people for their support and appealed for the public to continue embracing Maltese folk music and traditions.
In an on-camera interview before their act, little Lydon said that if they were to win, he wanted to take their Makkjetti to the Maltese communities in Australia so that he can bring some joy on the other side of the world too!
Re-live their first audition below!
