Greece: “Everything on stage will be captured though Amanda’s eyes”

Fokas Evangelinos, the Greek stage director for this year’s delegation, has spoken to “Στουντιο 4“, a greek show in ERT, about Amanda and her perfomance in Turin.

Just a day before the Greek delegation leaves for Turin, the Greek choreographer and director, talked about his cooperation with Amanda and her show in the stage of PalaOlimpico.

The last rehearsals were done today:

Today was our last rehearsal at ERT. It was the final one, with sound and everything and we are ready.

What are your feeling about Amanda and “Die Together”:

I have fell in love with this song. I got crazy both with “Die Together” and Amanda herself. I love the pauses and the empty sound of the song. It is a very powerfull element in the track. Amanda is exotic, she may look very serious but she has a great sense of humor. We had a wonderful cooperation.

How will “Die Together” come to life on stage?

It will be a simple perfomance. Amanda will be alone on stage. Everything will be captured though her eyes. There are three things that I want to highlight in the perfomance: Absence, Wear and the Sadness of a breakup. It is a very beautiful and lovely staging. There is of course an artistic intervention in the perfomance. We will se everything that’s going on though her eyes. The backdrop is designed in a way that it won’t overcome Amanda or the emotion of the song. Everything is connected in a way that the viewer will focus on her and not on the props or the lightning etc

How is the outfit that Celia Kritharioti designed for Amanda?

The outfit is wonderful. It’s made by a doric material. It’s beautiful and airy.

He has also mentioned his favorites perfomances he has directed and he has mentioned: Greece 2005, Azerbaijan 2013 and Russia 2016 and 2019.

Greece will perform 15th in the first semifinal with the song “Die Together”.

Jans Bors: ”Greece can be the winner of Eurovision 2022”!

Jans Bors the the head manager of two Czechian entries of Eurovision, at 2018 (Mikolas Jozef – “Lie to Me”) and 2019 (Lake Malawi – “Friend Of A Friend”) while his first involution in Eurovision was at 2016, talked via YouTube about the Balkan entries and gave emphasis to Greece and Amanda Georgiadi Tenfjord.

Most specific, he mentioned about Die Together and Amanda:

“Amanda’s live perfomances are just wonderful, perfect singing with such mesmerizing vibe, it’s heartwarming, it’s melancholic! The song has one of the best productions this year and it has a big courage, probably the most courageous spell I’ve heard at Eurovision and that’s why the first third of the song is just her voice with effect but it’s not boring, it’s interesting. I didn’t expect that song from Greece and with the right staging they will do extremly well”

At the end of the video, he talked about the possible scenario of Greece winning this year’s edition:

“The song is top five material and I’m sure it is one of the favourites to win the show. The competition is really hard but with the correct atmosphere and staging Greece can really win, it’s one of the few contenders!”

Greece: Amanda Georgiadis Tenfjord will represent the country at Eurovision 2022!

Through Studio 4 on ERT1, the long-awaited revelation of the name of the artist who will raise the Greek flag in May in Turin took place a while ago. The announcement was made by Greece’s representative at Eurovision 2021, Stefania, live from the Netherlands.

The 24-year-old Greek-Norwegian Amanda Georgiadis, or Amanda Tenfjord as she is artistically known, whom we first presented to you as our possible representative on June 7, 2021, was announced officialy as the Greek represantative in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest which is going to be held in Turin, Italy. On the stage of Pala Alpitour she will perform a ballad written by her in lyrics and music, under the direction of Fokas Evangelinos, while the project manager of the project will be Ilias Kokotos.

ERT’s artistic committee evaluated the proposals of 25 artists and singled out the top five artists, who had private meetings at the ERT’s headquarters with the committee and the management of Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation. After these meetings, where the candidates presented more details (stage appearance, song promotion, video clip designs, etc.), the competent committee considered Amanda’s proposal to be more complete, taking into account first the song, but also the above important factors.

The committee consisted of the following:

  • Dimitris Papadimitriou, composer – President
  • Maria Kozakou, Director of the Second Program of the NRA, commentator of the Eurovision Song Contest
  • Fotis Apergis, director of ERT radio
  • Peter Adam, music producer
  • Giannis Petridis, music producer
  • Konstantinos Bourounis, head of ERT’s youth program
  • Leonidas Antonopoulos, Journalist & music producer

Amanda’s Proposal

Her proposal includes a song, which as you read in our previous articles, is an inner ballad, written by her, that leads the listener to an explosion of emotions. The song was written after her separation, with a long-term relationship.

It was a painful separation and my feelings were extreme. When I was writing it, of course, I did not have in mind the Eurovision Song Contest, but when the idea came to me to take part in the Greek selection, everyone who listened to this song told me that this would be an ideal participation for both my country and me.


The producer and orchestrator of the song is Bjørn Helge Gammelsæter, a Norwegian musician with several important collaborations to his credit.

The feeling caused by Amanda’s melody and interpretation is so intense that I wanted the approach to production to be as abstract as possible. I used a vocoder, something that makes the song very special without losing its sensitivity. The orchestration of the song has been built around Amanda’s voice so that her unique tone is not lost.

Bjørn Helge Gammelsæter

Fokas Evangelinos, who strongly believes in her participation, will take over her stage appearance in Turin, if of course she is selected.

From the first moment I saw Amanda and heard her song, I felt that she has this unique and special thing that the Eurovision contest demands. Amanda herself has a special beauty and a charm that attracts you from the first moment you see her, while her song creates strong emotions that can lead to a very special scene. presence that will make her stand out.

Fokas Evangelinos

The director of the video clip of the song will be Kostas Karydas, the same director who took over Stefania. The successful director gives us a small hint, for the result we will see, in case Amanda is the final choice of ERT.

I find the song excellent and Amanda a girl with very special beauty. The track has a strong introversion and I think that cinematically I have to move in the opposite direction to have a very interesting result. Because I recognize that in the Eurovision Song Contest the ethnic elements in the music of the songs are obsolete, we will try to include the Greek element in the video clip, as we did last year with Stefania.

Kostas Karydas

Project Manager of the whole effort will be Ilias Kokotos, through whom Amanda was approached by ERT. We remind you that Ilias Kokotos, project manager of all Dream Team participations in the competition, was the one who proposed Stefania to ERT in the fall of 2019.

Who Is Who

Amanda Georgiadis, 24, was born in Oslo but lived the first years of her life in Ioannina, where she visits every summer as her family maintains a home in the area.

At the age of 3, her parents decide to move to the small town of Tenfjord in Norway. At the age of 5 she started taking piano lessons and became an amateur musician, writing her first songs as a teenager. At the age of 18 she began her studies in medicine, while at the same time taking part in various festivals.

In 2021 she has decided to make a statements with her sound. Her song “In the Rain” is the first track she has published with her company The Hubsters: songs full of melodies, nice backing vocals, strong chorus and clear instrunment.

Lou Is talked exclusively in our team for her proposal for Eurovision and more gave us more details of her song:

“During the first lockdown, I wrote a song and after many experiments it turned out as a dance, dynamic and very optimistic, even though this wasn’t the subject of the song. Many collaborators of mine have spontaneously told me that this one is ready for Eurovision and that’s how we decided to send it to ERT. 

The lyrics and the music are written by me. The production is pop-disco with some instrumental details and the lyrics are narrating a story.

It was a suprise for me to write something so different and outgoing compared to what I used to write”

Lou Is

Could this disco-pop entry be the one that ERT will choose for Greece in May? Stay tuned for all the latest details in Eurovisionfun!

She specifically stated:

My company and I submitted a pop song in English, with ethnic elements hoping for the best. Competition doesn’t have to exist in music. Between the other candidates, good job nicky is my weakness.

Greece: Constantinos Christoforou speaks to Europhoria, about his song for Eurovision 2022!

Last Saturday, Constantinos Christoforou was a guest on CyBC’s radio show Europhoria, hosted by Melina Karageorgiou. Among other things, he gave more details about the song with which he claims the Greek representation for Eurovision 2022!

Memories of the previous three entries

Constantinos Christoforou, who twice represented as a solo (1996 and 2005) and once with the band ONE (2002) his homeland, talked about all three of his previous participations, while of course he commented on his effort this year to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest for a fourth time, this time with the Greek colors.

About 1996 and “Mono Yia Emas“, which he described it as his favorite of his three entries, he stated that it was essentially the occasion for the beginning of his career, since he had the opportunity to introduce himself to such a large audience.

1996 was followed by “Gimme” and the participation with ONE in 2002. Constantinos reveals that the second candidate song was “Matia Mou“, with English lyrics, which was included in their album that was released later. He considers the sixth place an injustice one, since everyone believed that they would be at least in the Top 3.

Making his self-criticism for 2005, Constantinos Christoforou comments that perhaps the choice of “Ela Ela” was wrong, since in now he believes that the song She’s No Fool, written by Mike Connaris, would have achieved a better result, as it was very ahead of its time.

In fact, Constantinos Christoforou does not hesitate to say that RIK should have made an internal choice then and chosen this song, without holding a national final with the participation of the public, who voted in the vast majority of “Ela Ela“.

The song he submitted to ERT for Eurovision 2022

Melina Karageorgiou asked Constantinos Christoforou about the song he submitted to ERT, for the internal selection of the Greek entry in Eurovision 2022.

It’s a song I love very much. It is a ballad. A Mediterranean ballad, not ethnic, Mediterranean… There are two versions. One in Greek and English and one in Italian, which I love as a language despite not speaking it. The Greek lyrics are by Gioula Georgiou, the English are by Stefanos, my brother, the Italian ones are a surprise, you will see it when I release it.

Constantinos Christoforou states that it was a decision of his record label (MINOS EMI), to send the song to ERT for Eurovision, something of course that he immediately agreed with. All he asked was that they not bother him about anything other than telling him the result of the internal choice.

The above practically means that Constantinos Christoforou was not positive either in the participation in a national final, fully confirming everything we told you, for the refusal of most of the 25 artists participating in the ERT process to compete in an open television national final.

Concluding his interview with Europhoria, Constantinos Christoforou states that he will not speak publicly again about the effort to claim Greek participation in Eurovision 2022, since his decision is to keep a low profile, simply talking with his work, when and if needed.

You can listen the interview HERE (In Greek).

Ilias Kozas: “Last year I was in talks about a Eurovision return – This year I sent three songs to ERT”

Ilias Kozas confirmed what was written during last year’s Eurovision Song Contest about RIK’s proposal in his person for the representation of Cyprus in Eurovision 2021. The experienced singer referred, also, to all three songs he submitted to ERT in view of the internal selection for Eurovision 2022.

The 37-year-old singer was in contact with RIK last year, discussing his return to the competition as a solo artist and without his band, the Koza Mostra. Kozas together with his band and Agathon in 2013 brought Greece for the last time in the top 10 of the final ranking, with the song of Alcohol Is Free, until last May and the 10th place of Stefania.

In an interview on Katerina Karavatou’s show on Mega, he spoke about RIK’s approach, his desire to try out a solo career and his effort this year:

In general, with all the quarantine and everything we experience, I cleared my mind and began to expand on other sounds. I decided to do something solo. On this solo that has nothing to do with KOZA MOSTRA, I said why not?

A proposal was made to me last year but I was hesitant. I did not feel like going again and in the middle of covid. For those who have experienced it, Eurovision is a party. It is a pity to go and have quarantines, masks, vaccines.

I submitted three songs that were ready in advance, I did not write them for Eurovision, and they were not written exclusively for Eurovision.

We remind you that Ilias Kozas is one of the candidates to represent Greece at Eurovision 2022 next May in Turin.

It comes out as a surprise the fact that Ilias Kozas has submitted three songs, all of them with English lyrics and not with Greek. His proposed entries are of rock style, a genre he has served in his recent work both as solo artist and together with Koza Mostra band.
