You have read very well, our dear readers, according to information we have at our disposal, the song with which Cyprus will participate in Eurovision 2022 will be a composition by Michalis Hatzigiannis and Alex P and his team.
Through the show Me Agapi Christiana, Konstantinos Hampalis, editor-in-chief of Tv Mania magazine, stated that RIK is still in the search phase of the song, although there is a song that has caught the eyes of those in charge. So this song is a composition of the well-known Greek Cypriot singer Michalis Hatzigiannis and Alex P and his team, a Greek-born creator and producer based in Sweden.
RIK after the unsuccessful attempt to secure the anecdotal song of George Michael, but also the reluctance with which he faced this possibility, the well-known Greek artist who was offered to perform the song on the stage of Eurovision, turned to the choice of Michalis Hatzigiannis a scenario after all, it has been there since the summer.
The song according to our information is mid tempo and has ethnic vibes. As we had written, the singer for another year will belong to the staff of PANIK Records, since RIK’s collaboration with the record company continues in the coming years. We remind you of what the CEO of the company, G. Arsenakos, had revealed months ago, the talent show that will take place next year, with the prize of representing Cyprus in Eurovision 2023.
Michalis Hatzigiannis represented Cyprus at Eurovision 1998 with the song Genesis, occupying the eleventh place, while Alex P has participated as a composer in the contest with Cyprus (2012, 2018, 2019), Greece (2007), and Azerbaijan (2009).
For another year, RIK focuses first on finding a song and then on the search for the artist, who will lift the weight of the representation of Cyprus in the competition, hoping this time for a better result than last year. The selection of Michalis Hatzigiannis as co-composer of the song, comes to confirm the statements of members of the Cypriot delegation, that this year there will be Cypriot actors in the participation. The song is expected to be released in March, while any official announcements will probably be made next month.
In a communication that a member of the Cypriot delegation had with us, we were told that although discussions were held about the above mentioned scenario and cooperation, it seems is not something that went ahead. We are waiting now for the official announcements …
