The song wants you to identify with it and help you. It talks about how we should love ourselves. It is an anthem to believe in ourselves and how special we all are. It is an experiential song, as I, myself, as a child, have found myself on the sidelines, from those around me.

American Song Contest: Interview with Alexis Cunningham from West Virginia! (video)

Alexis Cunningham , who will represent West Virginia in the first edition of the American Song Contest , speaks exclusively to EurovisionFun and Apostolis Matamis .

Alexis is excited about her participation in the competition while, as she states, she has been involved in music since she was a child, writing stories, lyrics and poems while combining them with her guitar.

Here in America we know about this beautiful competition that has been happening in Europe for 66 years. When the American version became known, some friends urged me to submit a song. I did not want to miss my deadline and due to my great desire I finally submitted an entire album, from which they have chosen this one song that I will represent West Virginia in the competition. I am very grateful and excited about this!

Regarding the competition process, Alexis states that:

There will be five qualifying rounds from which the semifinalists will emerge and finally the ten finalists so that we have a winner. Some participants already have a large audience but I am already so excited to take part in this competition that I have been selected for and I want to enjoy it.

Alexis is very happy for her participation in the American Song Contest and her entry will be about love.

My song is dance, retro, it reminds me of disco and I do not believe that people will expect something like that, but they will love it and want to dance with it. I can not betray the title yet. It is a song about love, about the first youthful love. But it also speaks of love for ourselves, as we must never give up and we must follow our dreams. It’s quite uptempo. 

A teaser of the participation will be released a few days before her participation in the qualifier round while she is already preparing for her stage appearance.

I can not say much about it. It will have rock and roll vibes. It will be retro and colorful. 

She has been watching Eurovision since 2014 when she was in Scandinavia and she was captivated by the fact that all countries unite in one night thanks to music.

Amanda Georgiadi Tenfjord: “If I had only one year of life, I would like to represent Greece at Eurovision”!

The Greek representative of Eurovision 2022 was photographed for the OK magazine, giving at the same time a very interesting interview. Amanda Georgiadi Tenfjord spoke of course about Die Together which has already made an impression, the story behind the song, her aspirations in view of the upcoming Eurovision, but also the way she manages to be both an artist and a medical student.

For her decision to participate in Eurovision and not with Norway, Amanda, once again clearly states that she is Greek, who just works and lives in Norway.

…other than that, I like that in Greece there is a competition where the candidates can send their songs and the committee decides which one will go to Eurovision. In Norway the competition is more open and I confess that I do not like this type of publicity.

Amanda still can not believe that the ERT committee chose her to represent Greece in Turin, while she reveals that the first people to whom she announced her happiness were her parents, but also her grandmother (101 years old), who lives in Ioannina, Greece.

As also Stefania, Amanda grew up with the dream to represent one day Greece in the competition.

Even though I was dreaming of it, I never thought I would live it. Last year, when I saw Stefania singing for Greece, I thought: “If I had only one year of life, I would like to represent Greece in the competition”!

Nothing worries Amanda, except for doing anything wrong and disappointing for the Greeks who gave her this opportunity and the honor to represent them in such a big competition as Eurovision.

Image text: ”I want to make Greeks proud. It is such a honor to represent my country at this competition”

It was difficult of course not to be asked about the bets that want Greece in such a high position. Amanda prefers not to look at them, as she knows that they change easily. She is currently focused on preparing for her perfomance at the competition. As for what to expect from Fokas now, Amanda simply states that there will be an artistic approach.

For the story of Die Together, Amanda calls the song the expression of absolute love. After the pain she experienced from the breaking up with her previous relationship, the idea of ​​this song was born.

The title of the song may have a negative connotation, but if you listen carefully to the lyrics of the song you will realise that it is the anthem of absolute love.

In the end, Amanda also referred to the special show of ERT, with the former eurostars that we will be broadcasted to the Greek public television.

It is my great pleasure and honor to meet eight Greek eurostars up close. They will give me tips for Eurovision but they will also bring me the atmosphere and the background from their own participations.

More from the full interview of Amanda Georgiadi Tenfjord are available in OK magazine, which is released today, Saturday, March 12, together with NEA, a Greek daily newspaper.

Germany: Interview with Felicia Lu From Germany 12 Points! (Video)

Following the announcement of her participation in this year’s national final of Germany, Germany 12 Points, Felicia Lu speaks exclusively to EurovisionFun and Apostolos Bogiannos and Apostolis Matamis.

Felicia is one of the six finalists in the German national final for Eurovision 2022, and will try for the second time to represent her country with the song “Anxiety”.

In 2017 the situation was completely different. I was younger, the whole process was different. We were given all 5 ready songs and we had to make them our own. This year I come up with a song of my own that suits me perfectly. And it is a different experience because this year I will be able to be myself as an artist on stage. I was excited when the applications opened and realized that I could try again, so I sent the video and as a surprise I was selected once again. “Anxiety” is a personal song about all the social stress I went through in the last two years like everyone else. For me it was very important to have a song with a deep meaning and to help the people who will listen to it and not to take part with a song that will convey that everything around us is happy, something that is not true. And with “Anxiety” I want to convey the message that despite our stress we have to fight to overcome them, with a happier and dancing sound. Although it was not written directly for the contest, I’m glad it was selected from a total of five songs I submitted on public television.

Regarding her stage appearance in the national final, she stated that:

I work very hard for my live show which will be very different from the studio. Vocals will be better and more intense while there will be some moments of surprises. The whole look will be fun. There will be no resemblance to the videoclip. Although this was filmed in a toilet with a dose of humor, my stage appearance will be more serious and enjoyable.

Although she likes all the fellow songs, she can not single out one since she does not see the final in a competition but as a fun meeting between friends.

Her favorite German entries are those of Michael Schulte (2018), Lena (2010) and Stefan Raab (2000) while from the competition in general she stands out the entries of Måneskin (Italy 2021), Daði og Gagnamagnið (Iceland 2021) and Lake Malawi (Czech Republic 2019).

If he chose a Eurostar to work with, it would be Måneskin (Italy 2021).

Following her effort for Eurovision 2017, Felicia took part in Rising Star Germany 2018.

Shortly before the end of the interview, Felicia gave us a part of her participation.

Germany: Interview with Malik Harris | With “Rockstars” in Germany 12 Points! (Video)

Following the announcement of his participation in this year’s German national final, Germany 12 Points, Malik Harris speaks exclusively to EurovisionFun and Apostolos Bogiannos and Apostolis Matamis.

Malik is one of the six finalists in the German national final for Eurovision 2022, and will try to represent his country with the song “Rockstars”.

I wrote “Rockstars” last year and a few weeks ago a friend asked me if I would ever consider being at Eurovision and I said “I do not know, but I have the song that works for this purpose”. This is because it is quite personal and something different than what Germany usually does. Why not? It all starts with the right song after all. We grow up and initially live with a childish and carefree sense of life because when we are children everything around us is so simple. And growing up the thoughts and worries come and so have I been in recent years, especially now with Covid, and I recall how happy I was when I was little and how much that changes over time. Thus, the deeper meaning of “Rockstars” is not to live by constantly recalling the past. To keep the good moments from it but to see the good moments of today and to walk according to them.

Regarding his stage appearance in the national final, he stated that:

The staging will be very emotional. It’s the first song I wrote and it made me cry. And I will try to convey its meaning on stage.

Although he likes all the fellow songs, he singles out those of Felicia Lu and Maël & Jonas.

His favorite German participation is that of Lena (2010) ,while from the competition he generally distinguishes the participations of Måneskin (Italy 2021) and Duncan Laurence (Netherlands 2019).

If he chose a Eurostar to work with, it would be Måneskin (Italy 2021).

Malik is half American in origin and thinks it would be a great honor for him if he could present a song live in so many people, representing his country, Germany.

Shortly before the end of the interview, Malik gave us a part of his participation.
