The sixth day of rehearsals officialy began and the stage of M&S Liverpool Arena is ready to kick off the first rehearsal of the day!

Next up on the stage is Andrew Lambrou, representing Cyprus with his emotional ballad “Break A Broken Heart”.

Who is Andrew Lambrou?

Andrew Lambrou was born in Sydney, Australia and he is of Greek-Cypriot descent. Although he is just 24 years old his presence on TikTok is spectacular, since his profile on this social platform has gathered more than 700,000 followers.

He started to play music at the age of 5, when he was enrolled at the music school of AMS where he learned how to play the piano. One of his talents was his capabiity of listening to a song and then playing it on his own by heart. Soon he realized that he had to fulfill his musical destiny after having already won the first place in a competition singing the song “Doh A Deer”, still at the age of five. His own parents encouraged his inclination towards music throughout his life, while he attended musical classes at “LaVoce” Music School, where Marc Villagra was his vocal coach.

Andrew Lambrou currently lives in Sydney, Australia where he composes and performs his own songs, while he has also taken part in “The X Factor of Australia”, “Australia’s Got Talent” and “The Voice of Australia”.

The rehearsal

Unfortunately this year, accredited journalists don’t get the chance to watch the first and second rehearsals, so we only get the information and content that the organizers officially release to the public.

As we already know, the performance is inspired by the elements of the earth, from the abyss to the catharic waters of the waterfall, we end up to lava and fire for a rebirth. There are changes in the second rehearsal, he’s now barefoot.

Break A Broken Heart is a powerful, heartfelt ballad with a marching drumbeat that’s vibrating through the Liverpool Arena floor – Andrew’s vocal is sublime, and there’s something electrifying about the way this song builds from the first big note to an even bigger finish making it extraordinary. The LED backdrop transitions from waterfall to flames, is insane. Cyprus has floor smoke and four banks of flames ready to be everyone gasped.
