Malta: The change of song was requested right after MESC 2022!

A few weeks ago, 22-year-old Emma Muscat and the song “Out of Sight” won MESC 2022, the Maltese competition for the nomination of this year’s representative of the island.

However, although Emma received the highest ratings from both viewers and the jury, Maltese TV chose to change the winning song.

Following the selection, “Out Of Sight” received a somewhat lukewarm response from fans, and as a result Malta looked for a new song for Emma, ​​who is one of Malta’s biggest pop stars.

Maltese television has chosen to seek help from Denmark, according to the Danish site

Anders Fredslund Hansen, who runs the music company “The Arrangement”, said:

The day after MESC, I received a text message from their Eurovision manager asking for my help. They had found a winner, but were looking for a new song that could surpass “Out of Sight”.

Anders also participated in 2013, when Denmark with Emmelie de Forest won the competition. At the request of Maltese television, Anders Fredslund sent to the organizers a few songs.

Anders’s statements even confirm another exclusive Eurovisionfun’ news about the change of the Maltese participation and when it was decided.

Eventually, two were selected and recorded as a demo. The choice was the known “I Am What I Am”, which is written by two Danish musicians Stine Kinck and Julie Aagaard.

Stine Kinck has previously participated in the Danish Grand Prix as a soloist, while Julie Aagaard, who also publishes music under the name Kill J, this year had both songs in the finals of Denmark and Sweden.

For Anders,

The song is incredibly catchy and then it has an uplifting message, something that traditionally goes well at Eurovision.

“I Am What I Am” was even submitted to this year’s Melodifestivalen, but was not selected.

We remind you that Malta will participate in the 2nd Semifinal. Listen to “I Am What I Am”
