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!


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

Greece: In the island of Symi will take place the video clip of the song!

The choice of ERT and the artistic team for the location where the video clip of the Greek entry will be shot is the beautiful and closed to the borders, Symi.

An end of Greece, in which, however, the heart of Hellenism beats loudly, will be the shooting of the video clip of Amanda’s song for Eurovision 2022. Next week Amanda together with Kostas Karydas (the director), members of the Greek delegation, but also a crew of ERT will travel to Symi in order to film the video clip.

As we revealed to you in our previous article, ERT wanted the Greek element to be seen through the video clip. But do not wait to see a video clip type postcard, in the video there will be a story that will unfold in the beautiful landscapes of Symi. This is the image that Greece will send to millions of viewers this year through the video clip of its participation in the contest. ERT’s message to many recipients is clear. On a remote island that can be just 10 minutes from Turkey and 10 hours from Athens, will shoot the video clip of our nation’s participation in Eurovision 2022.

Amanda arrives in Athens on Sunday and will leave as we mentioned above immediately for Symi, where she will stay for three days. ERT with a crew that will have in Symi and through Studio 4, but also its news bulletins will inform us about the shooting with a rich background and related videos.

Greece continues to be in the top ten of bets, while Amanda is in the highest position in the betting table in relation to the countries that have announced an artist or a song, filling smiles and optimism in ERT’s offices. Despite the positive messages, however, all those involved keep their tones low, but preparing in the background every little detail for the Greek entry this year, hoping that in May the result will justify them.
