On the 26th of January viewers of the X Factor Malta witnessed a magical collaboration. For the first time ever, a name other than Ira Losco’s was being chanted while she was on stage. That name was Owen Leuellen.

Viewers of the record-breaking TVM show-X Factor Malta saw their votes ultimately lead Leuellen to the final live show. With his mentor, the queen of pop, he performed a revamped version of Ira’s latest hit, ‘Hey Now’. The performance created a buzz on social media, with the video on youtube instantly going viral and a clip was also shared by the X Factor Global Facebook page.

As announced by Ira’s manager and fellow judge Howard Keith on Xarabank a few weeks later, the new version of ‘Hey Now’ has been recorded. With thousands of people waiting for this release, it is becoming a ground-breaking hit.

Owen Leuellen placed 2nd in the first edition of X Factor Malta.
