Andromachi Dimitropoulou (just call me Andromache) was confirmed today as the Cypriot entrant to the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest with a song called ‘Ela’.
The video clip for the song, shot on 5 March 2022 in Athens, premiered today on the RIK 1 programme Ola ston Aera. It’s credited to a team of TEN composers led by Alex Papaconstantinou.
In September 2021, CEO of Panik Records George Arsenakos claimed that the label had signed an agreement with CyBC to establish a national final in order to select the Cypriot entrant for 2023. In January, it was announced an agreement between the two parties is already in place for the 2022 selection and that the performance of the chosen act will be staged by Marvin Dietmann and Dan Shipton, both having previous experience at Eurovision. Dietmann will also direct the staging for Israel, Germany and the UK (so far).
German-born Andromache emigrated to Greece as a child and went on to appear as a Voice of Greece contestant in 2015. She made the live shows, but that was about it. She’s signed to Panik records in Greece and Cyprus.
