Interesting information about the stage presentation of some participations?

A number of interesting information is given by a user on Wiwibloggs. Of course, we are not able to know if everything that user says is true. However, because everything he supports about the Greek participation and the direction of Fokas Evangelinos are based, we decided to publish this information, telling you to always read carefully what follows, as they are not fully confirmed.

Initially, this user refers to the participation of the United Kingdom, saying that although he believes that this year the country will do much better than we are used to, Sam Ryder will not win, since the stage presentation of Space Man is not a winning one. He also gives a forecast saying that UK will be from the 7th to the 12th place.

As was reasonable the above raised questions to users, who ask Who am i? how he is so sure of what he mentions. Who am i? then claims that he had the opportunity to see and know some things about the stage presentation of about ten countries.

What is of particular importance for Greece is the following:

So according to what he reveals, a country that will hold its first rehearsal on May 1 and is currently in the top ten of bets, will do much better than is now expected. In addition, he advises us to be patient, since a lot will change during the rehearsals.

The countries that have rehearsals on May 1 and are in the top ten of bets are Greece and Norway. However, knowing that Norway will perform on the stage of the contest almost the same that Subwoolfer performed in the final of MGP 2022, our mind automatically goes to the Greek participation. In his next comment he makes it even more obvious that he is referring to Greece.

Finally, Who am i? says some things about Poland as well. On the one hand, he does not think that it will go as well as most people think, but also that the stage presentation is not so different from the national final.

Who am i? gives his own prediction of the final winner of the competition, which he considers to be one of the women’s ballads, without specifying here which one he has in mind.

Are they just speculations? Are opinions based on data he knows? In very few days we will know. However, the truth in his words that we can also confirm, is that the stage presentation of the Greek participation is the telling of a story that will really move.

Greece: The first information about Amanda’s stage presentation in Turin!

The first information about the stage appearance prepared by Fokas Evangelinos, for the entry of Greece in Eurovision 2022, saw the light of day.

Amanda’s appearance in Turin with an artistic look

According to what Amanda Georgiadi said in the interview she gave to OK magazine, the approach they have chosen for the Turin scene is something more artistic.

From the first moment I saw Fokas Evangelinos I loved him! He is such a warm person. All I can say is that what you will see is something very beautiful. We have taken a more artistic approach!

The above is also confirmed by our information. What Fokas Evangelinos and the Greek artistic team plan very carefully and in every detail, is something very classy and elegant, which will match the atmosphere of the song.

Amanda will return to Greece the next week for the shooting of the live on tape video.

Amanda Georgiadi Tenfjord: “If I had only one year of life, I would like to represent Greece at Eurovision”!

The Greek representative of Eurovision 2022 was photographed for the OK magazine, giving at the same time a very interesting interview. Amanda Georgiadi Tenfjord spoke of course about Die Together which has already made an impression, the story behind the song, her aspirations in view of the upcoming Eurovision, but also the way she manages to be both an artist and a medical student.

For her decision to participate in Eurovision and not with Norway, Amanda, once again clearly states that she is Greek, who just works and lives in Norway.

…other than that, I like that in Greece there is a competition where the candidates can send their songs and the committee decides which one will go to Eurovision. In Norway the competition is more open and I confess that I do not like this type of publicity.

Amanda still can not believe that the ERT committee chose her to represent Greece in Turin, while she reveals that the first people to whom she announced her happiness were her parents, but also her grandmother (101 years old), who lives in Ioannina, Greece.

As also Stefania, Amanda grew up with the dream to represent one day Greece in the competition.

Even though I was dreaming of it, I never thought I would live it. Last year, when I saw Stefania singing for Greece, I thought: “If I had only one year of life, I would like to represent Greece in the competition”!

Nothing worries Amanda, except for doing anything wrong and disappointing for the Greeks who gave her this opportunity and the honor to represent them in such a big competition as Eurovision.

Image text: ”I want to make Greeks proud. It is such a honor to represent my country at this competition”

It was difficult of course not to be asked about the bets that want Greece in such a high position. Amanda prefers not to look at them, as she knows that they change easily. She is currently focused on preparing for her perfomance at the competition. As for what to expect from Fokas now, Amanda simply states that there will be an artistic approach.

For the story of Die Together, Amanda calls the song the expression of absolute love. After the pain she experienced from the breaking up with her previous relationship, the idea of ​​this song was born.

The title of the song may have a negative connotation, but if you listen carefully to the lyrics of the song you will realise that it is the anthem of absolute love.

In the end, Amanda also referred to the special show of ERT, with the former eurostars that we will be broadcasted to the Greek public television.

It is my great pleasure and honor to meet eight Greek eurostars up close. They will give me tips for Eurovision but they will also bring me the atmosphere and the background from their own participations.

More from the full interview of Amanda Georgiadi Tenfjord are available in OK magazine, which is released today, Saturday, March 12, together with NEA, a Greek daily newspaper.

Amanda: “The process in Norway is very scary”!

Amanda gave an interview to Marte Stokkstad, a Norwegian public television presenter and commentator of the contest. Among those asked was why she participates with Greece and not with Norway.

Amanda’s answer was clear and was not the one that was mistakenly conveyed on social media:

Wanting to cross-reference the above, we asked Amanda to listen to the audio clip in question and we convey to you literally what was finally said in this interview:

I participated for Greece because I am Greek…The process in Norway is very scary , with all these semifinals, duels. The song is exposed for 5 weeks and this is scary for me!

This was Amanda’s answer to the question why she never participated in the MGP and not why she considers it a circus, as it was falsely said!

Update:

Some minutes after our article published, Eurovision Norway asks apologies for the false and the misunderstanding

The Dream Team comment on the involvement of D. Kontopoulos in the composition of the Greek entry!

The presence of Dimitris Kontopoulos in Symi, together with the other members of the Greek delegation, raised many questions (once again), about the degree of his contribution to the composition of Amanda’s song for Eurovision 2022. Is he the producer of the song? Is he a composer? Is he a composer with Amanda? Is it none of the above? We will try to answer these questions, since Eurovisionfun came in contact with the Dream Team and we convey their comment to you.

On the one hand, and before we quote the Dream Team comment, you should keep in mind that Dimitris Kontopoulos several times in the past was a composer of participations in the contest, without putting his signature. Some of these times it was obvious that he was the creator (Moldova 2018) and sometimes the fact that he was the composer remains a secret to this day.

So whether Dimitris Kontopoulos is the composer or one of the composers of this year’s Greek entry, we will probably never know. But what is definitely true is what we were told by the Dream Team.

Regardless of the fact who is the composer of the song, Dimitris Kontopoulos is the man who has the first and last word in everything that has to do with music. in all our projects. From writing a song, to choosing it, to doing the production. Even if he did not write the song himself, he is certainly the one who chose it, providing his full confidence and approval.

We were explained by the Dream Team, that if Dimitris Kontopoulos did not approve of Amanda’s song, there was no way they could have suggested her to ERT, nor collaborated with her for the Eurovision Song Contest!

But beyond all the above, there is a practical reason that Dimitris Kontopoulos is in Symi. He is a fanatical fan of the island, maintaining a holiday house there.

So whatever the answer to the question, what exactly is the contribution of Dimitris Kontopoulos in the composition of the Greek entry, it is certain that Amanda’s song enjoys its full confidence!
