Congratulations go out to Destiny Chukunyere from Malta, with the song "Not My Soul"!

Winning the contest with 185 points, the 13-year-old from the city of Birkirkara won by a 9-point margin. The victory marks Malta's second victory in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in only three years.

Not only did Destiny win the trophy for her homeland, but she did it decisively: Malta's win with 185 points is the highest point total in Junior Eurovision Song Contest history, beating the high-water mark set by Spain's María Isabel in 2004.

Second place went to MIKA from Armenia with "Love", and third place went to Slovenia's Lina Kuduzović with her song "Prva ljubezen".

Of course, a hearty "Well done" goes to Australia's Bella Paige, who put in a great deal of hard work to compete in Bulgaria.

Her historic moment on the Junior Eurovision stage, hosted by Truslove and London, can be seen at 7:30pm on Saturday November 28 on SBS.
