The song is a dramatic ballad, with Michelle describing her sense of freedom at being "out on my own" and able to take control of her own life. Michelle performed the song barefoot.

The song was performed first on the night, preceding Iceland's Two Tricky with "Angel". At the close of voting, it had received 16 points, placing 18th in a field of 23.

Due to the poor finish, the Netherlands was ineligible to enter the 2002 contest, but was re-admitted the following year. Thus, the song was succeeded as Dutch representative at the 2003 contest by Esther Hart with "One More Night".

Out on My Own is also a song and first album by Sheila Chandra from 1984.
