We all sat and watched last night’s third Malta’s Got Talent episode, and aside from THAT Golden Buzzer audition, the other audition which WE ARE ALL talking about is that featuring Malta’s New Favourite Couple: The Adorable (and extremely talented) Ike and Kaya.
At just 10 years of age, Ike and Kaya are the newest power couple on the block. After belting out an original take on Elton John’s classic ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight’ from Disney’s The Lion King, they got a standing ovation from all four judges and 4 massive Yeses.
While the judges branded Ike as a Mini Owen Leuellen, they really weren’t that far off! In case you’re wondering where you might have seen Ike before, he actually played a younger version of Owen Leuellen in his music video ‘My Time’
Ike calls Leuellen his idol, the one that always believes in him. Judging by what we saw last night, Leuellen is definitely moulding Ike into becoming Malta’s next rap sensation, and we are definitely not complaining.
Kaya is also a face (and a voice) which we saw and heard before, as she won Sanremo Junior in 2019 and was also one of the finalists of the Malta Junior Eurovision Song Contest this year with the song ‘Made of Stars’ – an original song written by Muxu, Gillian Attard and Gaia Cauchi.
With this STAR team behind her, it is no wonder that she comfortably belted out the Elton John classic last night – during which she did remind us of a little Gaia Cauchi, who confidently delivered the winning performance of The Start, back in 2013 when Malta won its first-ever Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
All in all, yesterday’s audition was proof of just how inspiring local celebrities can be in paving the way for new talent such as Ike and Kaya. As MGT returns next week with more audition, we are looking forward to what else can these young lovebirds bring to the MGT stage!
