Eurovision 2022 second rehearsals are drawing to a close, with the penultimate semi-final two act of the day taking to the stage. That’s Malta’s Emma Muscat with “I Am What I Am”. How did she do? Let’s find out…
Malta’s Emma Muscat “I Am What I Am” — Eurovision 2022 second rehearsal
Padraig: Emma starts her rehearsal playing the piano, pretty much like in her music video. But that’s where the similarities end. She quickly abandons tinkling the ivories in favour of climbing on top of the instrument. It makes for a stunning shot, as she sings passionately with a glorious orange sun blazing behind her. Or rather it would be stunning if the stage was working. Instead, she performs in front of a total lunar eclipse which is much less spectacular than it sounds. Never mind, Emma looks beautiful in a reflective dress. She completes the luck with a pair of silver trainers and overall the performance is much more youthful and dynamic than any of her pre-party appearances. She’s joined on the satellite stage by a group of dancers, and together they turn what was a worthy but generic empowerment anthem into a likely qualifier.
