Cyprus: Two of the creators of Andrew Lambrou’s entry were revealed!

A while ago, the names of two of the creators of this year’s Cypriot entry were revealed on the official RIK account for the Eurovision contest. They are Jimmy Jansson and Thomas Stengaart, both with experience in the Eurovision contest and with several successes.

RIK has published a photo from the recording of its Eurovision entry, which was made by Andrew Lambrou in Stockholm and which you were informed about through Eurovisionfun.

As you can see, RIK declares itself ready for the 67th Eurovision Song Contest, preparing every detail much earlier this time.

This will be Thomas Stengaart‘s seventh entry in the contest, having co-written Denmark’s Eurovisin 2013 winning song, as well as Germany’s entries in 2018 and 2019, San Marino in 2021 and Azerbaijan in 2022. He was also one of the creators of El Diablo, the Cypriot participation in 2021.

Jimmy Jansson has clearly less experience, since in addition to his two participations in Melodifestivalen, he was one of the creators of Denmark in Eurovision 2020, which was however canceled due to the pandemic. So, it will essentially be his first time competing.

As the Cypriot mission informed us, Andrew Lambrou immediately after the end of the recording session in Stockholm will travel to Athens and from there to Cyprus. Thus, we will have the opportunity to see him in various media in the coming days.

Cyprus: Andrew Lambrou is in Stockholm for the recording of his Eurovision entry!

Andrew Lambrou arrived in snowy Stockholm in order to record the song with which he will compete in the 67th Eurovision Song Contest.

The representative of Cyprus in Eurovision 2023 and RIK, the Cypriot public broadcaster, have really entered into rhythm for Eurovision, since unlike this year when the decisions were made at a fairly advanced stage, this time everyone’s wishes are to have time ahead of them, so that there is also the most appropriate preparation.

Andrew Lambrou left his native Australia, which has summer these months, in order to come to Stockholm, where today snowed for the first time this year.

Delighted, Andrew uploaded a short video from snowy Stockholm, saying that it is his first experience in such cold, but also in snow!

According to what was conveyed to us by the Cypriot delegation, Andrew Lambrou’s trip to Stockholm has to do with the recording of the song, with which he will represent his country in the Eurovision contest. This practically means that the song is already selected. More details about the creators have yet to be announced, but the fact that he is in Stockholm for the recording makes us believe that Swedish musicians will sign the Cypriot entry to Eurovision 2023.

Immediately after the end of the recording, Andrew Lambrou will come for a few days to Athens and then to Cyprus, where he will give interviews and be present in the country’s media.

Everything about Andrew Lamprou

Andrew Lamprou is 24 years old, lives and works in Sydney. He performs and writes his own songs since he has been involved in music since the age of five.

At the age of just 17, he impressed all four X Factor judges, who easily passed him through to the next stage. Gathering excellent feedback from the four big names sitting in the judges’ seats – Danii Minogue, James Blunt, Chris Isaak, Guy Sebastian – Andrew got through the first round with four YESes performing Nick Jonas’ ‘Chains’.

In the second phase, that of the 5 seat challenge, the coach of the Boys under 25 team, Chris Isaak, was asked to select only five of the boys to continue. Andrew sang “Ain’t nobody” by Chaka Khan and took a place in the Top 5.

It is worth noting that Andrew Lambrou became known well before his participation in X-Factor, due to the YouTube Channel which he maintains and uploads there various covers of well-known songs worldwide.

Unfortunately, the Super Home Visits phase was not as lucky for the Cypriot expatriate singer as he did not manage to make it to the top 3 and enter the live shows. The cause was his musical inexperience due to his young age, however people who know the world music industry inside and out like Simon Cowell spoke very hopeful words about Andrew and his future.

Check out his appearance at Australia Decides 2022 below:

We wish Cuprus and Andrew the best of luck in Eurovision 2023!
