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?

Greece: Kalomira did not finally submit her proposal!

A few minutes ago, ERT’s deadline for submitting entries for Eurovision 2022 expired. As you had the opportunity to find out through our website all the previous days, Kalomira did not finally submit her proposal for the Greek representation in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest.

Kalomira is, after all, the only artist from all those who were heard in the previous period who did not transform her interest into action. Despite the fact that in the previous days she was in the studio, recording with important creators, such as Mohombi, Claydee Loupa and Anderz Wrethow, she did not send her proposal until midnight on Sunday (10/10), so that she could also claim it. the ticket to Turin next May.

What were the reasons for this unexpected decision of Kalomira, no one knows. In an article by OK a few minutes ago, it seems that Kalomira was expecting a direct assignment and that is why she may not have finally submitted her proposals.

It now remains to be seen when and if Kalomira will finally release the songs she has already recorded – it is said that they are six or seven tracks – to see if ERT should, as many have said, proceed with a direct assignment with a guaranteed product that has been unforgettable to the Eurofans with her inexhaustible energy, her original spontaneity and her brilliant stage presence.

The above is another proof for all those who insist that ERT does not hold a national final. So for the last time and we hope everyone understands, none of the well-known candidates wanted to participate in a national final!

The most important is that the participation of artists and record labels was much higher than ERT expected and despite the absence of Kalomira, the competent committee that will undertake the final selection will have a difficult task, since the level is very high, with the people of Greek public television to comment that this is the highest level Greek selection of all time, something of course that fills the ERT team dealing with the project with smiles, confirming their strategy and choices.

In the coming days of course we will inform you about everything that will follow, stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the developments!

Greece: Kalomira collaborates with Mohombi for Eurovision 2022!

With less than a week left for the submission of proposals for Greece’s representation in Eurovision 2022, all interested artists are preparing their songs. Kalomira could not be an exception.

Our representative in 2008 is working hard with her team, in order to submit to ERT her proposals for the representation of Greece in Eurovision 2022. In this context, she collaborates with the famous Swedish musician, Mohombi.

According to the post of the 35-year-old singer and composer on social media, he is currently in Athens and is preparing some new songs with Kalomira.


In fact, it is characteristic that in the post he posted on Instagram, Mohombi states: Writing hits only. Writing history. Let’s go Kalomira!

As we revealed to you in our previous article, the 36-year-old singer was in the song search phase, with her desire to represent Greece at Eurovision 2022 being a given. In order to submit a comprehensive proposal to ERT, it was likely to turn to foreign creators. So it happened.

According to information that has come to light in the last few hours, three songs will be submitted to ERT by the popular artist.

Mohombi

Mohombi is a well-known name to Eurofans around the world. He has participated three times in Melodifestivalen (2005, 2019, 2020), having as his best result the 5th place in 2019 with the song “Hello”. He became world famous with the song “Bumpy Ride” which was released in 2010 and counts several awards in his record, with the Grammy from his participation in Pitbull’s album “DALE” in 2016 standing out.

We therefore expect with great impatience the result of this cooperation, with the countdown for the submission of proposals for the representation of Greece in Eurovision 2022 to have begun. All interested parties have until Sunday to submit their proposals.

The developments as you realize in the coming days will be enough and we will be here to inform you about everything regarding the selection of the Greek entry in Eurovision 2022.

Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the developments regarding the Greek entry in Eurovision 2022!

Greece: No proposal has been officially submitted to ERT yet!

It is known that in Greece we are last minute people and this is absolutely true in the case of Eurovision! According to our exclusive and secure information, no proposal has been officially submitted to ERT, for the claim of the Greek representation in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest. This practically means that all interested parties have only one week at their disposal to submit their proposal.

We may already know the potential Greek representatives for the upcoming contest that will be held next May in Italy, we may already have their statements, but so far none of them has submitted his/her song, but also their complete proposal, at the ERT’s headquarters.

Of course, several of them have contacted ERT, asking for clarifications on the process, how to submit their proposal, etc.

The recording studios have literally caught fire, as all the candidates put the finishing touches on the songs they will submit, all hoping that they will impress the jury, which will later be invited to choose the one who will defend the Greek colors at Eurovision 2022.

The ERT team that deals with the project, with of course the prominent director of Corporate Communications Dora Chiraki, is completely satisfied with the level of the artists, but also with the increased interest from the media, production companies, record companies, etc.

What also remains to be decided is the exact way of choosing the artist and the song. As we have written in our previous articles, a jury headed by the composer and member of the Board of ERT, Dimitris Papadimitriou, will be responsible for the selection. What is being considered is for this committee to be more extensive than the corresponding committees of previous years.

The developments as you realize in the coming days will be enough and we will be here to inform you about everything regarding the selection of the Greek entry in Eurovision 2022.

Greece: First details of the candidate songs for Eurovision 2022!

ERT started the procedures for the selection of its participation in Eurovision 2022 very early and already various “valid” information are mushrooming left and right for the candidacies that have leaked to the media. Most of them, of course, are far from reality, so we will try to enlighten you so that you have a first idea of the proposals of the artists who will claim the Greek representation in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest!

All the information about the Greek entry in Eurovision 2022 so far!

ERT may have been accustomed to official announcements in the past years after the Christmas holidays, but the place in the top ten that Stefania brought to Rotterdam a few months ago whetted the appetite of the managers of the Greek public broadcaster, who want an even better placement in Italy. Thus, in contrast to what happened in previous years, we will soon have the first announcements, while there are many artists who are preparing to claim the Greek representation in Eurovision 2022. We will see all this briefly below.

How will ERT choose the artist and the song?

So far no final decision has been made on how the artist will be selected, but also the song that will represent Greece in the next song contest. Nevertheless, what seems most likely is a process similar to the one followed in 2020. An artistic committee of ERT to examine the proposals that will be submitted and decide on both the performer and the song. The difference with 2020 is that this time the process will be more open and with more publicity, giving the opportunity to any interested party to submit his proposal.

At the end of September, ERT will make the first announcements, giving a deadline of no more than two months, for those interested in wishing to represent Greece in Eurovision 2022. Immediately after, the proposals submitted to the committee will be evaluated and the most appropriate one will be selected. ERT’s goal is that by the end of the year, the Greek entry in the next song contest has been selected, so that there will be plenty of time for the video clip, the setting up of the stage presentation, but also the promotion of the song abroad.

Stefania’s good result this year, after eight years of failures, but also the professionalism shown by the ERT team in this year’s contest, has aroused the interest of many artists. Let us then look at three of them, who have already begun their preparations for claiming Greek representation in Eurovision 2022.

 

Kalomira wants to return

Kalomira wants it very much, but the same desire is shared by her record company Heaven. According to our information, Heaven is preparing a specific proposal in order to submit it to ERT, in a relatively short period of time. Kalomira is not unknown to the friends of the contest, since in 2008 she took the third place for Greece, with My Secret Combination.

Of course, this alone is not enough to bring the sweetest Kalomira back to the contest. ERT should announce the way in which the artist and song will be selected for Eurovision 2022, while of course Kalomira’s proposal should convince the managers of the Greek public television that it will bring a very good result for the country in the music competition, which will take place next May in Italy.

The interest from all the record companies, after this year’s tenth place of Stefania and the way ERT managed the Eurovision project, has reasonably increased and Kalomira is not the only one who is preparing….

Amanda from Norway wants to repeat Stefania’s success

Amanda Georgiadi or as she is known, Amanda Tenfjord, is a half Greek artist that lives and works in Norway. After this year’s successful participation with Stefania, ERT will probably want to repeat the successful experiment, sending a talented artist from abroad, thus capturing votes from countries that basically do not vote for Greece (this year Stefania received 10 points of the Dutch televoting).

Through her social networks, Amanda informs us about the fact that she was in the studio, for the recording of new songs. Of course, Eurovisionfun could not help but ask the expatriate, talented songwriter and singer if this recording has anything to do with the Eurovision Song Contest.

Amanda willingly answered us, telling us that she recorded three new songs, one of which is actually intended for Eurovision. She also revealed to us that she will visit Greece in the next months. Specifically, as soon as she performed the second dose of the vaccine, the young artist told us that she would come to Greece, in order to be here in the studio as well.

Good job Nicky is also preparing

Many eurofans in Greece would be extremely happy, if Good job Nicky would be the country’s representative in the next Eurovision Song Contest. Nikolas Varthakouris, who as Good Job Nicky has brought fresh air to the Greek music scene, is particularly positive about the possibility of participating in the Eurovision Song Contest, provided of course he finds the right song, which in turn will convince ERT that can be a worthy successor to Stefania and Last Dance.

The interest of Good Job Nicky to participate in Eurovision seems to be confirmed by Ermis (Hermes Geragidis), the composer-producer with whom Nikolas writes all his songs. When asked on Instagram about the possibility of seeing Nicky on the Eurovision stage, Ermis said ignorance laughing, but then nodded in agreement.

Vote in our poll

Of course, the interested artists are not exhausted in the above three names, since as we told you, many will be the ones who will try to claim the Greek representation for Eurovision 2022. But there are definitely three persons that will occupy us in the coming months. Vote in our poll below. Who you would like to represent Greece at Eurovision 2022, send your own message to ERT!

Greece: What is Kalomira preparing? EXCLUSIVE

The law of Intellectual Property prohibits any illegal use / appropriation of this, with severe civil and criminal penalties for the offender.

Kalomira, who spends her holidays in Greece with her husband, her children, but also her friends, has been showing intense mobility lately. Is all this activity related, in the middle of summer, in fact, to a possible claim of the Greek representation in Eurovision 2022?

Kalomira returns to musical things!

A few hours ago Kalomira updated the cover photo on her social media, something very strange of course for the time we are at.

The truth is that Kalomira has been in Greece for a long time, while she did not go unnoticed and some meetings she had in the previous period with her partners in Heaven, with whom from the first steps of her career she maintains very good professional, but also friendly relations.

Is this return related to Eurovision 2022?

Of course, everyone’s first thought is whether the artistic reactivation of Kalomira is related to a possible Greek representation at Eurovision 2022.

It is known, she has also revealed, that she had some discussions with RIK in order to represent Cyprus in this year’s contest. The pandemic, however, did not give her much opportunity to give a positive answer, since any trips from the USA where she lives with her family, were almost forbidden. She said then:

It was a risk with the coronavirus to travel with the children. There I put the brake.

But 2022 is a new year and Kalomira is more and more in Greece. Her interest in Eurovision, as she has said from time to time, remains a given and she would like to be on the stage of the competition again.

Yes, I would go to Eurovision in the future. The children have now grown up. I would like my children to see me on stage. They have not understood that I am a singer. They asked me why they were interviewing me.

How likely is it to see Kalomira at Eurovision 2022?

Let us now turn to the crucial question. Is it possible to see Kalomira representing the Greek colors? She wants it very much, but the same desire is shared by her record company Heaven. According to our information, Heaven is preparing a specific proposal in order to submit it to ERT, in a relatively short period of time.

Of course, this alone is not enough to bring the sweetest Kalomira back to the contest. ERT should announce the way in which the artist and song will be selected for Eurovision 2022, while of course Kalomira’s proposal should convince the managers of the Greek public television that it will bring a very good result for the country in the music competition, which will take place next May in Italy.

The interest from all the record companies, after this year’s tenth place of Stefania and the way ERT managed the Eurovision project, has reasonably increased and Kalomira is not the only one who is preparing….

However, it is no coincidence that even on the feast of Kalomira a few days ago, Heaven hurried to remind us of Secret Combination through its social networks, the song with which in 2008 the then 23-year-old singer, gave to Greece the third place .

Cyprus: This is why Kalomira rejected CYBC’s proposal for Eurovision 2021!

The popular singer Kalomira gave an interview to the morning show of Open TV, Eytycheite to the journalist Giannis Poulopoulos.

In particular, she talked about her family and their life in America. Of course, she could not fail to mention Eurovision.

She spoke about Eurovision 2021 as her name was one of the first to fall on the table for the representation of Cyprus in Rotterdam.

She revealed:

It was a risk with the coronavirus to travel with the children. There I put the brake.

Would she go to Eurovision again in the future?

Yes, I would love to go to Eurovision in the future. The children have now grown up. I would like my children to see me on stage. They have not understood that I am a singer. They asked me why they were interviewing me.

Watch her full interview in the video below:

Would you like to see Kalomira on Eurovision stage again?

Kalomira: “If I go to Eurovision again, I would like to have such a song…”!

Kalomira gave an interview to OK magazine and to the journalist Giannis Poulopoulos. Shortly after returning from the Caribbean, where she celebrated 10 years of marriage with her husband, Kalomira clarifies in the interview if she has really discussed the possibility of Eurovision 2021 with RIK, she describes the song with which she would like to participate again in the contest, while revealing whether she has already heard a candidate song.

One of the people rumored to represent Cyprus at Eurovision 2021 is Kalomira. Kalomira who is still popular in Greece and Cyprus, admitted some weeks ago in an interview on a Belgian website, that for the first time she is seriously considering returning to the contest, having already had some discussions with RIK.

For the first time since that interview, Kalomira opens her papers more and gives some more important details.

Initially, she admits once again that has discussed with RIK the possibility of representing Cyprus in Eurovision 2021 and describes the song with which she would like to do it:

If I were to go to Eurovision again, I would like to have a strong dance track that would allow me to dance and have fun on stage.

Kalomira is then asked, if she has had heard any songs for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest:

No. So far I have not heard any song.

Finally, the journalist asks her if she is concerned about the fact that Eurovision 2021 can be held without an audience and with completely new data, different from what we are used to, due to the pandemic.

I love Eurovision very much and I believe that by May 2021 there is room to prepare better than in 2020. I am sure that Eurovision 2021 will be a success.

We remind you that according to what is reported in the Cypriot media, Kalomira is the favorite at the moment to represent the island in Eurovision 2021, without of course excluding the cases of Katerina Stikoudi, Irini Papadopoulou, Elias Koza or some other surprise name!
