"Where I Am" is a song performed by Danish-Australian singer Anja Nissen. The song was released as a digital download on 28 February 2017, through Universal Music. Anja represented Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, and co-wrote the song with Angel Tupai and Michael D'Arcy.[1]

Nissen said: "The song is about letting go, particularly in relationships. Breaking down the emotional walls and letting you give love and receive love. Haven't we all been in that situation where we've felt lost and we've felt we don't know who we are and that no one is going to accept us for who we are? But at the end of the day we make a decision to not care and just to let go. That's what the song is about."[2] Anja Nissen wrote the song when she was 18 years old about her first relationship. She intended "Where I Am" to be her debut single after winning The Voice Australia in 2014, but it never materialized.[3]

Eurovision Song Contest[edit]

Nissen was confirmed to be taking part in Melodi Grand Prix 2017, Denmark's national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 on 19 January 2017.[4] The songs were released in Denmark on 20 February 2017.[5] During the final, held on 25 February 2017, Nissen advanced to the superfinal as one of the top three finishers in the first round, along with Ida Una and Johanna Beijbom. She went on to win the competition after earning 64% of the public and jury vote.[1] Nissen represented Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, where Denmark competed in the first half of the second semi-final.[6][7]
