MADWALK 2018 🇬🇷 watch the full performance of Evridiki
CYPRUS – Evridiki represented Cyprus in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1992 (Malmö, Sweden) with the song Teriazoume (finishing in eleventh place), and then in 1994 (Dublin, Ireland) with Ime Anthropos Ki Ego. The latter caused controversial reactions from critics and the audience due to the song’s political allusion to The Cyprus Problem.
On the other hand, it became a hot favourite to win because of its ethnic sound and her very sentimental performance. As with her first entry in the contest two years previously, Evridiki took eleventh place. Evridiki also appeared as a backing vocalist in Eurovision on three separate occasions, in 1983, 1986, and 1987.
In 2007, she was selected to represent Cyprus for a third time, in that year’s contest, with the song Comme Ci, Comme Ça whose lyrics were written by Posidonas Giannopoulos and its music composed by Dimitris Korgialas. Despite being tipped as a potential winner, it failed to make it through the semi-final stage of the competition.
In 2008, she appeared at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2008 in which she performed the theme song of the contest, Fun in the Sun with her former husband Dimitris Korgialas.
