Malta: New song for Eurovision 2022

The Maltese broadcaster PBS has decided to replace Emma Muscat's song for Eurovision Song Contest 2022 with "I Am What I Am"

MESC 2022 (Malta Eurovision SONG Contest 2022) had three shows aired live from Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre in Ta' Qali less than one month ago, under the motto: "What a Feeling".

22 brand new songs were presented in the Semi-final on 17 February 2022. 17 of these qualified for the Final on 19 February. Everything decided by televoting (14% weight!) and a jury (86% weight).

What a feeling!

The 22 songs obviously meant nothing to the Maltese broadcaster

But it was all unnecessary. The 22 songs obviously meant nothing to the Maltese broadcaster, who has now chosen to send a completely new song to Eurovision: "I Am What I Am". The artist remain the same: The winner of MESC 2022, Emma Muscat.

Let's see whether songwriters will continue to write songs for future editions of MESC (Malta Eurovision SONG Contest).

What a feeling!
