On 19th of February the final of Malta Eurovision Song Contest (MESC) took place and Emma Muscat won the show with the song “Out of Sight“ and it was decided that she will be the Maltese representative at Eurovision 2022. Today it has been confirmed that her Eurovision entry will be her newest release “I Am What I Am”
The author of “I Am What I Am” is Dino Medanhodzic who is known to the Eurovision audience as the man behind several Melodifestivalen songs including Lina Hedlund’s “Victorious” from 2019 and Johanna “Dotter” Jansson’s “Bulletproof” and “Little Tot”. Dotter is the one behind the backing vocals for “I Am What I Am”.
This won’t be the first time that the artist which won Malta Eurovision Song Contest changes the song ahead of Eurovision as the same thing happened with the winning entry of MESC 2016 “Chameleon” performed by Ira Losco. The song had the same destiny as “Out of Sight” as it was changed by the song from a Swedish composer, as it was the songwriting debut release of Molly Pettersson Hammar. You can listen to Maltese entry “I Am What I Am” on Spotify, iTunes or YouTube as well as check out the official music video below
