Ivi Adamou has stated that she would be interested in participating in the Eurovision Song Contest again.
Speaking in an interview with real.gr, Cypriot singer, Ivi Adamou revealed that she would be interested in returning to the contest. Upon being asked whether she would like to represent Greece or Cyprus again in the future, she said:
“I would, yes, it was a wonderful experience. They have proposed it to me multiple times. I believe I’ll feel it when the moment is right. I want a really good song and a really strong team. Let’s see, I hope so!”
Ivi represented Cyprus at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku and stated that she has since received several proposals from the Cypriot broadcaster RIK to return to the contest. At the time, however, she had just given birth to her daughter and had to decline.
At the 2012 contest, Ivi finished in 16th place in the Grand Final with her song “La La Love”.
