Tonight, we’ll be seeing the right mixture of talented people who has already made a name for themselves elsewhere and others who are yet to be discovered.

Here’s what we gathered from Malta’s Got Talent promo for episode 3 which will air tonight.

Motorsport lovers rejoice, motorsport is finally getting some spotlight during tonight’s show! Team Maximum Lock is a Maltese stunt and precision driving team which was set up in 2010.

After putting up multiple jaw dropping shows all around the world, it’s time to show the Malta’s Got Talent judges what they’re capable of.

Another act that will be taking the stage tonight is Sofija Anic who will be bringing all her dance moves on the Malta’s Got Talent Stage.

Get ready for another jaw dropping performance.

We don’t know much about Kaya and Ike, all we know is that they’re about to steal your hearts.

Pole dancing, a sport which is considered as a taboo in Malta, will also feature on tonight’s show – with the hope of breaking boundaries and make this sport more accessible and appreciated on the Maltese islands.
