The third live show of the debut season of the X Factor Malta has taken place, with the remaining 8 finalists performing songs to the theme, ‘Movie Spectacular.’
In the last two weeks, just two acts have been eliminated in each show, however this week four acts were eliminated. This week the acts prepared two songs for the show, and after all 8 acts performed their first song, two were eliminated. Then, after the performances of the second songs from the remaining 6 acts, one was immediately eliminated, while two other acts went through to the Final Showdown where another would be eliminated.
Here is the list of performances from the first round.
- Owen Leuellen – Gangsta’s Paradise
- Ben Purplle – Oh, Pretty Woman!
- Nicole Frendo – Skyfall
- Norbert Bondin – The Greatest Showman
- Michela Pace – I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing
- Luke Chappell – Heathens
- Kelsey Bellante – Pray for Me
- Petra – We Don’t Need Another Hero
Two acts were eliminated after this round, and they were Ben Purplle and Kelsey Bellante.
Here are the performances from the second round of songs:
- Luke Chappell – What Do You Mean?
- Petra – Set Fire to the Rain
- Norbert Bondin – Empty Space
- Michela Pace – Shallow
- Owen Leuellen – Believe (original song)
- Nicole Frendo – Scared to be Lonely
Eliminated immediately was Norbert Bondin, while Owen Leuellen and Luke Chappell were sent to the Final Showdown. The judges were split between the two acts, meaning that the vote would return to the public vote, and it was Luke Chappell.
This means that the remaining four acts are:
- Michela Pace
- Owen Leullen
- Nicole Frendo
Next week will be the final show of the season, where the winner will be decided. The winner will go on to represent Malta at Eurovision this year!
