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!
