Andersson first claimed to fame in Expedition Robinson 2001 as one of the contestants. One year after her television adventure, she launched a singing career releasing the music album Who I Am. Among her most known songs are Weightless, a duet with Bosson, though the album never became a success.
In 2003 she entered a special "Best of the best" Expedition Robinson with the most popular former contestants, which she won.
Andersson got an offer to host Dolce Vita on Kanal 5, which she took. The show ran for a couple of seasons. Emma has since done a number of different shows on Kanal 5 before moving to the USA with her fiancé.
In 2002, Emma Andersson participated as an interviewee in the Swedish TV4 show Ursäkta röran, Vi Bygger Om (English: Pardon the mess, we're redecorating). The show made headlines due to a segment called "the Swedish Nazi-reference championship." The singer and former Expedition Robinson-star was fooled into an interview during which the program leaders made over 50 Nazi-references and observed her reactions. These included jokes such as naming the show they claimed to work for "Treblinka", claiming that Leni Riefenstahl was a modern director of music-videos, that Joseph Goebbels was a DJ whose music resembled Andersson's, and dozens of other references to the Third Reich and the Holocaust. Throughout the interview, Andersson wore a T-shirt with the text "Treblinka - Class of '45". Andersson didn't seem to react at all on tape. She later claimed that her reactions were edited out in order to make fun of her
