Amanda Georgiadis Tenfjord

Amanda Georgiadis lives in Norway and is of Greek heritage. She was born in Tenfjord in Norway, and that is where her artist name comes from. The first years of her life she lived in Greece before she moved back to Norway.

Amanda has been a fan of Eurovision for many years:

– I have watched Eurovision every year since I was a child. We had a tradition at home where we always invited lots of friends and made a real party with Greek food and great cheering. Also, everyone had their own scorecard and gave points to all the songs, says Amanda and continues:

– I'm really looking forward to participate, but I'm a bit scared too. This is incredibly big!

She already shared in October that she was interested in submitting a song to Eurovision for Greece, and according to her social media, her song is an emotional ballad.

Amanda's song for Eurovision Song Contest 2022 will be released at a later date.

Amanda – "Then I Fell In Love" (NOT her Eurovision song)
