Get ready to sing to your heart’s content, because Ira Losco and Owen Leuellen have FINALLY released their epic version of the songstress’ hit single, 'Hey Now'. X Factor Malta viewers were first treated to this rendition on the 26th of January during the final, when Owen - who was competing for the top spot on finals night - revamped Ira’s hit with a catchy rap. And the crowd went absolutely WILD.

The term ‘drag queen’ is pretty well known (thank you Ru Paul’s drag race!) but how about ‘drag king’? Well, it’s about to get a whole lot more popular as Malta welcomes award-winning show Joan!
