Greece: Die Together on stage will be like a dream | Soon the first rehearsal of Amanda!

The first rehearsal of the Greek participation takes place in a very few hours and we hope that it will be completed without problems and unexpectedly.

Fokas Evangelinos has designed for this year’s Greek entry, his most artistic stage appearance ever in his history in the contest.

What we will actually see will be a dream of Amanda, through her own eyes. The main person of course throughout the 3 minutes as we have informed you will be Amanda, in whose face we will see many close-ups and alternations.

Renaissance props, led that will travel you and take your breath away, play with shadows and lights, but also led for which shooting was required in Athens, are just some of what Fokas Evangelinos has prepared for the stage appearance of Die Together.

But do not forget that everything we will see will be a dream… and the dream ends in three minutes.

At 14.20 cet the first rehearsal of the Greek entry, with the optimism being diffused that Amanda will impress.

Greece: Acoustic version of “Die Together” is available on all music platforms!

After a big demand from many fans, Amanda revealed that she will release the audio version of “Die Together” on all music platforms. This announcement was initially made through her personal Twitter account and then some Insta Stories followed. The song is now available on Spotify and Apple Music.

Apart from the release of the song, she also mentioned on Twitter that the artwork for the song will be a creation of the fans.

Enjoy the acoustic version on Spotify:

We remind you that the first broadcast of the song on its acoustic version took place through the frequency of ERT on Studio 4 on April 7.

Below you can watch Amanda’s performance:

In this particular video we watched Amanda sing live Greece’s participation with the choir of her fellow students from the Medical School.

Along with music, she did an internship in a hospital with covid patients in the previous period. So, in parallel with her involvement with music, Amanda does not neglect her studies, wanting, as she emphasizes, to be a doctor who sings!

Greece with Amanda Georgiadi and the song “Die together” will compete on May 10th, in the First Semi-final and specifically in the 15th place.

The hosts test the lights and LEDs on the stage for the Greek entry ! (video)

A small video was released on social media, where the organizers are testing the lights and LEDs that will be used in the Greek entry.

As it seems the scene is complete and the hosts are now doing the first rehearsals. Next week the stand in rehearsals will take place, which will be sent to the participating broadcasters, in order to have a first idea how it will show on TV, everything they have prepared for the Eurovision stage.

Although you can not understand much, about the importance of being essentially the first video where Die Together is heard inside the Pala Olimpico, watch the video below:

The video was uploaded to his personal Instagram account by Nicola Orciuoli, RAI cameraman, who will be apparently one of the cameramen of the contest.

We remind you, as we have already mentioned in Eurovisionfun, that the Greek delegation is ready for the competition. Everything that will be needed for their stage appearance is in Turin for days now, while the LEDs created by a foreign company have been delivered to the hosts.

You can see more information about Amanda’s stage appearance in our previous article.

EXCLUSIVE: The Greek delegation is ready for Turin | All the latest information!

The Greek delegation for Eurovision 2022 is all set. All pending issues have been resolved and now the team is ready to present what they have been preparing for months on the stage of Pala Olimpico.

Fokas Evagelinos and Celia Kritharioti full of surprises

According to our exclusive information, the rehearsals with Fokas Evagelinos have been completed. The experienced director has prepared for this year’s competition something completely different from his previous works, something he is really proud of. Fokas Evagelinos has built the three-minute stage version of Die Together second by second. Amanda, as we were informed, cooperated very well and responded perfectly to the role that Fokas Evagelinos created for her.

The leds that we will see in the Greek performance, were completed the previous days by a foreign company and impressed the Greek artistic team, since they 100% “match” with the song, but also with the idea of the stage presentation.

What Fokas Evagelinos has prepared this year for the stage of the competition, does not aim to impress the viewer at any point during the three minutes of the performance, but to keep everyone’s eyes fixed on the whole duration of the performance of Die Together. To make sure the viewer is left with a feeling of being impressed by the whole thing and not by an estanée.

What we can also reveal you is that what Amanda will be called upon to accomplish, especially in the first part of the song, is something that is not easy at all. But Fokas Evagelinos, having proven that he can bring out the strong side of any artist (experienced or inexperienced), has built with Amanda a special performance that will move and impress the viewers. Amanda herself will play a central role in the presentation, but so will also the leds, camera-work and various surprises on stage.

The outfit chosen by Fokas Evagelinos together with Celia Khritharioti, is a shade of white, but with a fabric that makes it special and is used for the first time in the competition. It is Amanda’s style, of course, but it is also perfectly suited for Eurovision and the idea of the Greek stage presentation.

Optimism for the final result from ERT and the Dream Team

The production team and ERT are completely satisfied with the whole preparation. They are confident both for Amanda’s vocal prowess (this was also proven in the live on tape), but also for what Fokas has prepared for the stage of the competition. For the first time since 2009, Greece arrives at the rehearsals being 7th in the odds, which makes all those involved in the participation happy, believing that they will be in the top 10 of the scoreboard for the second consecutive year. The goal of course always remains the best possible outcome – and as they say, “the higher the better”!

Having avoided all the promo parties, the Greek delegation hopes to impress on the stage of the competition and steal the show. It is also known that the Dream Team keeps its cards close to its chest until the end. This is exactly the same tactics they are following this year.

With a different approach from Fokas Evagelinos, but also with Amanda as we have probably never seen before, the Greek delegation is now packing its bags for Turin, and the first rehearsal on Sunday 1 May!

Greece: Watch Amanda’s live performance of “Die Together” on ERT’s Dynata!

The show Dynata by Kostis Maravegia is dedicated today to the Eurovision Song Contest. Many important artists, including Bessy Argyraki, Konstantinos Christoforou and Nikolas Raptakis, reminded us of their entries in the contest, as well as other favorite songs from the history of the competition.

Of course, Amanda Georgiadi’s performance in Die Together stood out. Watch the video below:

Greece: Listen to the first live performance of “Die Together” by Amanda | Video

Although, as you have read through Eurovisionfun, the first live performance of Die Together was expected for next Friday, April 15, on the show of Kostis Maravegia – Dynata, a while ago in Studio 4 of ERT we watched a very moving video with Amanda singing live the Greek entry accompanied by doctors and fellow students from the Medical School.

We remind you that Amanda, in addition to music, is a medical student. She even practiced in a hospital with covid patients in the past. So, in parallel with her involvement with the arts, Amanda does not neglect her studies, wanting, as she emphasizes, to be a doctor who sings!

Amanda is currently completing filming for the special show, which will most likely start airing next week. On Friday, April 15, we will enjoy it at Kostas Maravegia’s Dynata, while at the end of the month it will return to Athens for the final rehearsals before the Greek delegation leaves for Turin.

Greece: On March 10, through the main news bulletin of ERT, the revelation of Amanda’s song!

The decision has been made and ERT finalized the date of the announcement of the Greek participation in Eurovision 2022. According to our information, the video clip of the song, with which Amanda will compete in Turin, will be published through the main news bulletin of ERT1 , on Thursday, March 10, at 9 p.m. Of course, if the news does not allow it, the announcement will take place from one of the ERT shows (eg Studio 4).

Everything is ready and ERT’s initial intention was for the videoclip to be released next Thursday, March 3. Unfortunately, the dramatic developments in Ukraine, with the Russian troops at the gates of Kiev, pushed them to postpone the publication of the Greek entry for a week.

With Greece in fourth place in bets, despite the leak of just an unfinished demo, optimism is pervasive on the ERT’s headquarters that the country will manage in Eurovision 2022 to take an even better position than last year. So, wanting to give as much attention as possible to Amanda’s song, ERT decided to postpone the release of the video clip for next Thursday, March 10. Of course, there is no guarantee that the situation in Ukraine will be better next week, but nevertheless the Greek public television wants to exhaust every possible margin.

The countdown is now officially starting!
