Amanda Klara Georgiadis Tenfjord, commonly known in Greece as Amanda Georgiadis but using the stage name Amanda Tenfjord, left for the northern Italian city of Turin as on May 10 she will perform “Die Together” in the first semifinal of Eurovision 2022.

At noon on Sunday, the representative of Greece in the European song contest took the stage at Pala Olympico and performed her first rehearsal of Die Together.

The young singer appears alone on stage in a long, silver-white dress, which has the signature of Silia Kritharioti.

The design of the stage was undertaken by Giannis Mourikis, while the editing and direction of the stage presence is by Fokas Evangelinos.

A true love story, in which Amanda Georgiadi features and wrote, is the video clip of the song Die together.

Against the background of the unique landscape of Akriti Symi, where the shooting took place, the director Costas Karydas chose not to create an ordinary plot that usually has corresponding video clips, but to focus his lens on the so many different moments and emotions that each relationship hides.

The protagonists of the story are a young couple who visit the island where they met and fell in love. But this time everything is different.

Smiles and happy moments alternate with the bitterness and frustration that is reflected in the eyes of all of us when we realise that a relationship is ending.

The rare, but also so impressive landscape of Symi, which is captured in an exceptional way in the video clip, seems to be the third character of the story.
