Evangelia: “I’m sending in a song for Eurovision 2023”!

As we have already revealed, the Greek artists’ interest in participating in Eurovision 2023 is particularly strong! And while the first rumours have already begun to spread, we already have the first official confirmation from none other than Evangelia, a promising young artist who came into vogue the last couple of years!

Evangelia, whose music fuses Greek folk sounds, with (mostly American) pop elements, has already pulled of hits, such as “Páme Páme”, “Fotiá”, and “Ónira”. Also, the new video clip for her song, “Paradise”, was recently released.

The singer, who grew up in New Jersey, USA, and is originally from Crete, said in an Instagram live on her personal account, talking to Adem Kavaz (a Turkish Cypriot Eurovision fan) that she “wants to represent Greece or Cyprus in ESC” and “she will submit a song for Eurovision 2023”.

The Instagram video is not available, but it will be published soon on Adem Kavaz’s blog and youtube channel .

It is not the first time that Evangelia will seek to take part in ESC, since last year she reportedly submitted three songs, (one of which was “Ónira”), to represent Greece, which, however, did not go through the second stage of evaluation by the selection committee. Evangelia also sought to represent Cyprus in the 2022 ESC.

Cyprus: It’s final | Cyprus’ representative for Eurovision 2023 will not be selected through “All Together Now”!

As we previously reported as the most plausible scenario, has now become almost certain; All Together Now will not be used as the method of selection for the artist that will represent Cyprus in Eurovision 2023.

The trailer of the talent show that will be broadcast through Alpha TV (Greek free-to-air channel) and will be presented by Nikos Koklonis, is already on air, without a single reference to Eurovision or the possibility of the winner representing Cyprus in the upcoming competition.

Further to this, according to our exclusive information, “All Together Now” is scheduled to be aired in the second half of the year, since another show (“J2US”), will be broadcast instead in the first half. The preparation required for All Together Now is quite extensive and the production team could not make it in time to have the artist selected for Eurovision. Have in mind that additional time is anyway required for choosing an appropriate song.

However, the plans of Nikos Kokloni’s production company (“Barking Well Media”) for a talent show through which the winner will also get the ticket for the Eurovision Song Contest are not altogether abandoned. So, and if “All Together Now” gets the green light for a second season, we might see it return in the fall of 2023, for the selection of the Cyprus’ representative for Eurovision 2024.

Based on the above and without anything being a foregone conclusion, the most likely scenario is that CYBC will choose both the song and the artist by direct assignment, as in the previous years.

Stay tuned for updates on the matter!

The plans of Greece and Cyprus for Eurovision 2023!

Even though the Grand Final of Eurovision 2022 was less than a month ago, the Greek and the Cypriot public broadcasters, ERT and RIK, are already thinking ahead for their next representatives, while some decisions have already been made. Let’s see in detail what we know so far.

Cyprus: All Together for…Eurovision!

A few days ago, we wrote about the rumors that the planned for the fall of 2022 show All Together Now of Greek broadcaster Alpha TV, will be used to find the representative of Cyprus for Eurovision 2023. Today, the biggest newspaper of Cyprus, Fileleftheros, published an article on this as well as OGAE Greece, which usually has inside information from the Cypriot public broadcaster. These articles can be seen as a confirmation that Cyprus will choose its representative through All Together Now, produced by BarkingWell Media and in cooperation with Panik Records. It seems that Nikos Koklonis will be the host of the show which is set to premiere in mid-October and be aired every Saturday night on both Alpha TV and RIK, while among the panel of 100 there will be singers, vocal coaches and eurofans. The song will be chosen at a later stage.

Greece: ERT aims for another top10 result

During September there will be official announcements from ERT on the selection process for 2023. After placing 8th in the Grand final and 6th from the juries, which is the best ranking for a Greek entry by the juries since 1992, ERT aims to be for the third time in a row in the top 10, something that is proven to be difficult the recent years since only Greece, Ukraine and Italy have managed to be in the top10 two consecutive times.

ERT will most probably follow the same procedure as the last two years, launching an open invitation for artists to submit a proposal for Eurovision 2023, (including the song, a record label, production team etc.) while a jury of music professionals will decide who will represent Greece next year.

Decisions on the details for the selection process for Eurovision 2023 will be taken after the announcement of the new CEO of ERT, which is not expected before the end of the summer.

Stay tuned on and on our social media platforms, where we post our proposals for the next representative of Greece. Maybe among them, the successor of Amanda Georgiadis Tenfjord has already -or will- be mentioned!

Cyprus: Is All Together Now the national selection show for 2023?

Although Andromachi did not qualify for the final and RIK had the lowest rating of a Eurovision final since 2013,the Cypriot public broadcaster is already planning its selection for Eurovision 2023.

There have been hints since September this year, when the CEO of Panik Records Giorgos Arsenakos revealed in an interview to OK magazine, that Panik was in talks with RIK already for the 2023 contest about a talent show, the winner of which will represent Cyprus in Eurovision 2023.

Even though there is no official announcement yet, Greek online media are reporting that the BBC format All Together Now, which will be aired on Alpha TV the fall of 2022, is going to be the show where the representative of Cyprus for the 2023 contest will be chosen. The format has been successfully adapted by many countries and in each episode, contestants perform in front of 100 judges, aiming to gain their vote. In the Greek version,  it is rumored that the judges will be 50 instead of 100 and it will include singers, songwriters and radio producers among them. The production will be by Barking Well Media, and seems that the host will be the owner of the production company and TV host, Nikos Koklonis.

Below you can see the 2019 UK representative Michael Rise, who rose to fame through the British version of All together Now when he got the vote of all 100 judges.

Eurovision 2022: Cyprus’ Second Rehearsal!

Then on the stage of Pala Olimpico, we have Andromache from Cyprus goes up with Ela.

Who is Andromache?

Enthusiastic pop fans will know that Andromache is on the rise throughout Europe in recent years.

Born in Germany and raised in Greece, music has always been a huge part of her upbringing. Her whole family was involved in singing and dancing.

Andromachi became widely known when she competed in The Voice of Greece and later signed a record deal with Panik Records.

Her single, Na Sun Lie, became her biggest hit, both on the radio and on music platforms, consolidating her status as the pop star that everyone should follow.

The rehearsal

Cyprus definitely has one of the biggest props of today rehearsal day. On stage, there is a huge shell-shaped structure that houses Andromachi, the two dancers, but also the graphics. Andromache appears as the goddess Aphrodite, emerging from the waves, bringing elegance and energy. She is barefoot and dressed in a beige ensemble, while low lighting prevails on Andromache, in pink and purple colours. The scenery is beautiful!

Eurovision 2022: Cyprus’ First Rehearsal!

The last country to take the stage today for the first rehearsal is Cyprus, represented by Andromache and her song Ela.

Everything about Andromache

Keen pop fans will know that Andromache’s star has been in ascendancy across Europe for the past few years.

Born in Germany, and raised in Greece, music has always been a huge part of this participant’s upbringing; her entire family were passionate performers when it came to singing and dancing.

But Andromache first rose to widespread attention when she competed in The Voice of Greece, signing to Panik Records shortly after.

Her single, Na ‘Soun Psema, became the artist’s big breakthrough hit across radio and streaming platforms, cementing her status as a pop star to watch.

The Rehearsal

Cyprus definitely have one of the biggest props of the day – a huge shell-shaped structure that accommodates both dancers AND graphic projections. We love a multi-function prop.

Andromache appears like Aphrodite from the waves, and brings some elegance and energy to the final rehearsal of the day – it’s a really good mid-tempo pop song, and we’re having a little dance in the Green Room.

@eurovision @Andromache_dim can’t wait to get on stage and we can see why! Incredible first rehearsal for Cyprus 🇨🇾 #EurovisionTikTok #Eurovision2022 #Eurovision ♬ original sound – Eurovision

Cyprus: In Eurovision 2022 with Andromache and the song “Ela”!

Through the evening show from RIK1, “Ola ston Aera“, Cyprus’s entry for Eurovision 2022, named “Ela” (Come) by the talented artist Andromache, was shown for the first time.

In the first broadcast through the show, we had the opportunity to listen to the song that Andromache will sing at the upcoming Eurovision for the first time.

You can listen to the song  in the website of Panik Records.

Ela” will be available in all digital music platforms in Friday, March 11. On the same day, the music video will premiere in the official YouTube channel of Panik Records.

The Directors of the Song:

The song is written by the Greek-Swedish Alex P, known for his a lot of participations in the competition, Greece 2007, Azerbaijan 2009, Cyprus 2018, Cyprus 2019

The team is completed by Nikos Giouletzis, a well-known musician in Greece with many and great collaborations, but also Fatjon Miftari, a music producer from Albania.

The lyrics are written by the known Cypriot song writer George Papadopoulos.

The participation of George Papadopoulos in the whole project, comes to confirm everything that the leaders of RIK said in the past, that there will a strong Cypriot color, in this year’s song .

We remind you that RIK has already announced as artistic director of its participation in the next competition, Marvin Dietmann, from Austria, who was responsible for the staging of both Austria’s winning performance in Eurovision 2014 with Conchita Wurst, as well as the jury vote winner in Eurovision 2018 with Cesár Sampson from Austria.

Cyprus in Eurovision Song Contest:

This is the 38th participation of Cyprus in the competition, which is now the country with the most participations without a win. Debuted in 1981 with Monika and an impressive sixth place. Until the end of the 90’s, Cyprus managed to be in the top ten of the final score, on a regular basis. However, from 2004, when the semi-finals were introduced started and until 2014, it managed to cross the reef of the semifinals, in only three cases!

The above has changed drastically since 2015 and since then, Cyprus has qualified for every final. The peak of all this good course, was of course the second place in 2018 with Eleni Foureira and “Fuego”.

Last year Cyprus was represented by Elena Tsagkrinou and the song “El Diablo.

Cyprus: Is Giorgos Papadopoulos involved with the Cypriot entry?

By Sunday 13 March, all countries that haven’t announced an artist and song for Eurovision 2022 will have to do so. Among them is Cyprus, which play their cards close to their chest this year, waiting until the last moment to make the official announcement.

What do we know as of now?

Although nothing has been officially announced by the Cypriot broadcaster, RIK, what appears to happen thus far are the following:

  • The country will be represented by Andromachi from PANIK Records.
  • The song is signed by Alex P and his team.
  • According to what Andromachi has stated lately, it is a song with a mix of traditional and modern sound.
  • The song might have some Greek lyrics.
  • The artistic director for the second consecutive year will be Austrian-born Marvin Dietmann.

Is George Papadopoulos a part of the Cypriot team?

Based on some of our latest information, RIK will announce that the well-known Cypriot singer-songwriter Giorgos Papadopoulos is included in the composing of the Cypriot entry.

The participation of Giorgos Papadopoulos in the whole project, comes to confirm everything that RIK said in the previous months, that in this year’s Eurovision, there will be a strong Cypriot colour.

We remind you that two years ago, in an exclusive statements by the artist’s manager to Eurovisionfun, it was mentioned that Giorgos Papadopoulos was against representing his country as a performer, but not as a composer or a lyricist.

Right now, I think he wouldn’t want to be the performer, but he would certainly want to be the lyricist and the composer of the Cypriot entry.

We are anxiously awaiting for the official announcements of RIK for this year’s Cypriot participation! Cyprus will compete in the first half of the second semi-final of Eurovision 2022, hoping for its seventh consecutive qualification to the final.

Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the news regarding the Cypriot participation in Eurovision 2022!

Cyprus: The scenario “Kalomira” seems to fade out!

As it has already become known in the last few days, Kalomira did not submit to ERT the long-awaited participation for the Eurovision 2022 competition! However, according to recent reports, Kalomira’s team was considering the scenario of the favorite singer being on the stage of the competition with the colors of Cyprus for the second time.


However, according to today’s report of SKAI‘s morning show “Love it”, this scenario seems to be moving away. Specifically, a journalist of the show stated:

Kalomira approached  RIK, to give there the song she prepared with Mohombi and Claydee! However, RIK decided after years to put a Cypriot color in their participation and to have a Cypriot artist as a composer! In recent years, foreign composers have been participating with Cyprus and the artists have come from Greece and this has created reactions.

According to this information, Kalomira does not seem to have agreed with RIK, refuting the reports that have been circulating on the internet in recent days.

Finally, in the show they mentioned the fact that it will not be a surprise to see Cypriot artists of great scope undertake the composition of the Cypriot participation!

It seems that this year we will be late to find out who will be the 38th representative of the island of Aphrodite, in contrast to previous years. What do you think? Will we see a Cypriot artist representing Cyprus this year?
