Cyprus: Lowest audience in over a decade for Eurovision 2022

RIK saw a “record” of low viewing figures in Cyprus for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, with the lowest numbers in over a decade.

Less than 100,000 viewers tuned in to the second semifinal, in which Cyprus participated, but also to the Grand Final. Specifically, 81,080 viewers watched the second semifinal, from which Cyprus failed to qualify, 27.1% less than the corresponding semifinal last year. Similar numbers were recorded in the Final, with 80,430 viewers tuning in and with the huge 53.8% decrease from last year’s Final.

The previous lowest percentage of viewers for a Eurovision Grand Final was recorded in 2013, with 125,000 viewers.

Andromache with the song Ela represented Cyprus in Eurovision 2022, failing to qualify to Saturday’s Grand Final and finishing in the 12th place in the second semifinal.

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.
