For the past week, there were rumours, that Emma Muscat is planning to change her Eurovision song song “Out Of Sight”. The artist herself has just confirmed the rumours on Instagram saying that she will sing “I Am What I Am” in May.
The song is written by Emma herself and Stine Kinck, Julie Aagaard and our Swedish superstar Dotter’s fiancé Dino Medanhodzic. By the way, Dotter herself is performing as a backing vocalist in the studio cut of “I Am What I Am”. The music video for the new song was also released later.
22-year-old singer, songwriter, pianist and model Emma Muscat has over 730 thousand followers on Instagram, more than the population of Malta itself. She began playing the piano and singing at the age of 5 and released her first single “Alone” in 2016. Her entry “Out of Sight” was the favourite to win Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2022 from the start after big success on YouTube.
Malta is set to compete in the second semi-final of the contest on May 12th. She will perform in the first half of the show.
It has been a bumpy ride for Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest over the past years. Last year Destiny brought the island to the final with “Je me casse” and finished seventh in the grand final. Also in 2019 the country qualified to the final when Michela represented Malta with “Chameleon“. However, the country failed to qualify in 2017 and 2018.
