The X Factor Malta Finalists: Richard





Last Sunday’s X Factor Malta Semi-Final had some wild twists and turns. The people have voted and the talented pool of artists has been narrowed down to just four acts, who will battle it out one final time next Saturday during the big FINALE! Get to know this year’s talented final four with these 5 simple questions!


1. How would you describe yourself in 5 words?

I am a twin, I like traveling, I love playing soccer, I try to be the best I can be especially with others and finally, I love singing!

2. What first got you into music?

What got me into music is myself actually, since I was very young I loved singing and my family saw untapped potential. They wanted me to start singing lessons, but I’ve always been shy until now. Well I’m still shy! My girlfriend also pushed and encouraged me to give it my all which helped me throughout this competition. She’s my number 1 fan!

3. What has been the most surprising thing about X Factor Malta?

X Factor Malta is full of surprises from the beginning to the end, the most surprising thing is that it helped me to start believing in myself more. If there is someone out there who is shy, like me, and thinks they have what it takes to participate, I encourage them to do so its an amazing experience and it will help you grow!

4. Which song have you enjoyed performing the most so far, and why?

I enjoyed singing ‘A thousand years’ the most, I had some technical difficulties with ‘Angels’ and that spurred me to give my 100% for the next performance, which was ‘A thousand years’. I was super happy with the whole performance, plus I LOVE THAT SONG ❤️ It’s totally different from what I usually sing!

5. Who or what are some of your greatest influences in music? And if you could choose just one to collaborate with, who would it be?

My favourite artists are James Blunt , James Arthur , and Lewis Capaldi and if I had to choose a Maltese artist to collaborate with, it would definitely be Owen Leuellen!

A very limited number of tickets is left for the Final, get yours here!
