Cyprus’ Ivi Adamou

Ivi Adamou is one of the best Auto-Tuned singers at Eurovision, and one of the fiercest digitally re-mastered artists in all of Cyprus. But after Team Wiwi found video footage of the singer lip-synching at a club in the Mediterranean, we’ve had one question on our minds: Can Ivi sing “La La Live”? So naturally we launched a poll. Wiwi’s readers cast a total of 1,472 votes. Here are the (rather shocking) results:

Can Ivi Adamou Sing La La Live?

Yes – She is amazing 959 votes, 65.15%
Yes – She is O.K. 240, 16.3%
No – She needs more vocal coaching 151, 10.26%
No – She should never sing live 122, 8.29%

You can watch Ivi’s semi-final performance from May 22 below. Team Wiwi thinks she has awesome choreography. But moving your body well is not the same as singing well. She sounds like she has a sore throat, or a hidden Adam’s apple. Lady’s voice is deep and hoarse! In any case, let us know if our readers have it right….

You know what? She didn’t only sing like a man. She looks like a man as well. Who knows? Maybe she’s a tranny. Probably is.
Oh and she’s so fat and ugly too. She has man muscles, yuck.
She didn’t deserve to get in the final.

The truth is that she wasn’t as good as expected but she had some problems with the vocals. Here in Greece we know her and she is amazing. I thing that ivi, eleutheria and loreen will rule the grand final

@supermario and Wiwibloggs,
After all the talk about Ivi Adamou being unwell at the semi-final, I’ve suddenly remembered that Loreen (who ironically is performing tonight) was in THAT very same situation at the Melodifestivalen 2012 final! Performing at number 6, her vocals WAS deep and hoarse, just like Ivi’s. Best to check Loreen’s performance at the Melodifestivalen Final 2012 on YouTube.

Now that Wiwibloggs have done a poll on Ivi Adamou following her semi-final performance whilst being unwell, can we do a poll on whether Loreen can sing live or not?
After all, she’s on tonight for the second semi-final then afterwards, we’ll judge based on tonight’s performance!

I do not know if she sing well, but here.. Hm.. NO, here she deffinitely did not sing good. I could sing like that, and I don´t know to sing.

@ Adam : Come on guys…it’s all about COMPETITION. Who’s ready and well prepared, then she/he will be the winner. What would you say if her performance is still bad in Grand Final? I’m just curious about what’s the next excuse? Adam…Your question about Loreen reminds me last year favorite Amaury from France who’s failed even in TOP 10. Since he had a very bad performance he was lack of vote. @ Anthony : Officially EBU said that more than 125 mil viewers watch the show every years, but since this show is not only aired in Europe I believe… Read more »

@supermario That Semi-Final performance was like a footballer continuing to play whilst suffering a hamstring injury. It could have cost Ivi dearly BUT fortunately it didn’t and she made it. Now that Ivi’s IN the Grand-Final and until she is 100% FULLY RECOVERED, then her performance WILL improve. Her choreography is perfect and it’s just the vocals that need working on. In the meantime, Ivi will need to get a lot of rest to recover herself before taking on the Grand Final. And since when Eurovision had 500 million viewers? I clearly don’t remember having THAT many viewers otherwise no… Read more »

First I have to say I do love the song by Ivi. I think the video she did was amazing. The song ranks in my top 5 to 10. However, after watching her perform live at the semi finals, I thought her voice was off. I even wrote that down in my comments. Sadly, if everything goes down to voting on that particular performance, I would have had to give it a bad rating. But here we are in the 21st century, we get to her the songs over and over, way in advance of the contest thus giving us… Read more »

@ Anthony : Yeah, I can understand what you mean, but this is THE SHOW and that is THE REAL COMPETITION , it ain’t rehearsal anymore. No excuse for performers (not only IVI) if they want to be the winner. People who’s watching will not care about what behind the bad performance. They will not know and they don’t want to know. Unless you will tell 500 millions viewers who’s watching the show. Can you? Lols. Well at least she has a second chance to prove us that she can really sing. I hope she will get better and will… Read more »

This must be a joke right? So, your readers vote and you ask them if they agree with their vote????? HAHA that’s rediculous! …. Go Ivi! “If You Got Haters, You Must Be Doing Something Right”

I do not understand the need for such negative commentary. If you believe that Ivi had such terrible voice, how did she get through to the finals? With her ghastly hideous voice? Eugh, I don’t think so. Both girls, Ivi and Eleutheria, that is, did an absolutely fantastic job, regardless of the fact that Ivi was unwell. Keep it up for Saturday girlies!

@supermario, As I’ve already mentioned, IVI WAS SICK!!!!! And I am NOT biased! If the singer of whoever you’re supporting felt poorly, do you expect a perfect performance from him/her/it/they when they’re vocals are clearly affected? NO!! To put the video in ladies’ terms, if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young man and you grab one, you’ve done what you set out to do. We didn’t look our best yesterday but we’ve grabbed one. Some weeks the man is good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Ivi’s performance yesterday would have been… Read more »

Well .. I think her voice is not that good. It sounds rough and lil bit pitchy all the way.
Just listen and watch her performance in that video.
If you said that she could sing live what would you say her performance in that video then?
Come on guys don’t be biased.

I’ve been hearing rumours from fellow Cypriots on that Ivi was apparently poorly when she performed last night. So it might explain why Ivi’s voice was deep and hoarse. I’ve also been to one of Ivi’s gigs earlier this year (she’s a gorgeous and very friendly lady!) and I can proudly tell that Ivi CAN SING LIVE (just as long she doesn’t overdo it)!!

Ivi and Eleftheria had their voices covered by the backing-vocalists. They each had one backing-girl in the back of the stage, otherwise they would have not sounded good last night. We all know how they sounded in reherasals, where I couldn’t really hear any backing, so their voices were awful, not to say shitty. So Greece, Cyprus, please pay your backing-girls a bonus wage! I know you’re in deep austerity and crisis but they did all the job for Ivi and Eleftheria, otherwise we could have not seen you in the final. Bow for the backing, bitches!
