She’s the 24-year-old artist and medical student who will sing for Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.

And now, on the latest cover of Greece’s Gala magazine, Amanda Tenfjord proves she’s also a stunning beauty who is ready for her moment in the spotlight.

In a series of photos in the editorial photo spread, Amanda finds her light and stares straight through the camera at her growing fan base in Greece and Norway, where she’s lived since she was three years old.

A post shared by Amanda Georgiadis Tenfjord (@amandatenfjord)

In an article titled, “I want to become a doctor that sings,” she speaks about her experience working in a hospital during these most uncertain of times.

“I worked at the hospital this summer, in the emergency room, and I felt the intense pressure,” she says. “I have a lot of friends who work as doctors and nurses now and the pressure is huge with long working hours and high stress.”

She’ll face a lot of stress herself this May. During Eurovision she will need to study between rehearsals, since she has to take her final exams in medicine this June.

So what was it like for a Greek toddler to move to Norway?

“My family moved to Norway when I was 3,” she says. “At that time I was speaking only Greek so in the beginning it was difficult but I learned the language quickly.

“Even as a singer it was difficult since for Norwegians it was impossible to pronounce my surname ‘Georgiadi’ and this is why I chose Tenfjord as a stage name. That’s the name of the village where I grew up.”

A post shared by wiwibloggs (@wiwibloggs)

Speaking of her Eurovision 2022 entry, which won a competitive internal selection process, she says it was born of heartache and Eurovision was not on her mind when she wrote it. It was, instead, a song she wrote to express her emotions following her first serious relationship. It is, she says, her favourite of anything she’s ever written.

What does she want Greeks to feel when she performs?

“I want them to feel proud. I am not representing myself at Eurovision but Greece. After all, during the announcement of the results at the the end, the spokesperson will give points to ‘Greece’ and not to ‘Amanda.'”

Amanda confirmed that she will work with legendary Eurovision stage director Fokas Evangelinos, with whom she felt an immediate connection.

Finally, the Gala journalist pointed out that Stefania, when announcing Amanda, advised her not to be nervous. Is Amanda nervous?

She laughed it off, saying that she can’t wait to meet Stefania to find out precisely how she can do that. But she notes that creative stress is part of the process.

Are you loving these photos of Amanda as much as we are? What do you expect her song to be like? Let us know in the comments box below.

Well if you have the song give us the song…the long wait and the hype don’t work anymore, Russia, Armenia, Azerbaidjan, Cyprus, Belgium, Switzerland, I’m looking at you too you are the experts of the deadline, and I’m sure Belgium and Switzerland are already ready since months, so guys don’t wait until the end like each years, it’s boring, useless and predictable now….if you are confident in what you send I don’t see the problem and I don’t see the aim to wait until the end.

There is not any hype from her part neither from greek broadcaster, it is just an interview her given to a local greek magazine.

There’s not a big master plan to get hype behind this interview. It’s aimed towards the Greek public so that they get to know her since no one knows her here.

As for the song, there was a demo I guess and now they’re working on the final production and mixing of the song, then they need to shoot the video clip too. Be patient, it’ll be released sooner or later.

Well we’re talking about her right now, correct?

If you mean that the private media haven’t talked about it, it’s to be expected cause they only care about established artists. Anyway, I hope she gets more exposure later.

NO MORE FOKAS EVANGELINOS TO EUROVISION! We had enough!!! He always does those unnecessary over the top staging that destroy the songs!!! As always Fokas is working with ERT because he has the connection! There are so much better talented new choreographers that can you much more interesting things

I agree. And everything he does makes the songs look like 20 years older. “Last Dance” was such a powerful modern sounding song (one of my favourites) and he turned it into a 70´s show that was really unnecessary.

I just know Amanda’s song will be one of my favourites. I’m obsessed with her work.

Even though we haven’t heard the song, she’s a potential winner in my opinion.

I think that Greece is back for good.
She seems very interesting as an artist and the story of her studying to be a doctor will definitely bring her points.
Second top 10 for Greece in a row?

Snik? Nice joke…

And as for your question, it doesn’t matter if they’re known in Greece as long as the song is good.

I am very hopeful about our entry this year. Amanda seems to have a kinda alternative style so I expect an artistic effort.

Of course she’s not going to say that her song is sh*te. That would be bad marketing.

It’s nice to read it, if not for the fact that there is a dream team behind her song, and now the eurovision fun site attacks people only those who do not support the choice of ERT television and the representative herself

The same recipe never works two years in a row, Cyprus sent stage divas with fuego copycats and we all know how that went. Not all diaspora girls are like Stefania who has star quality. Amanda is like a ghost in Greece, nobody knows her and she is not even full time singer. Hope the song is that good that justifies why she was chosen.

I also originally thought that we are following the same strategy twice in a row which would be bad but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Amanda has an alternative and well-formed style. She is very much different from Stefania who is much more commercial. I think the song will be good. Let’s wait and see.

I think if anything, she is in that same category as Katerine Duska in terms of musical inclinations. “Better Love” was a huge upgrade from the more formulaic “This Is Love” two years before.

Pure non-sense! Was Stefania even known in Greece before being selected? The answer in No. And how do u know this will be a copycat? You have not listened to the song even… genre-wise the 2 artists seem very different. The selection strategy might be similar but that does not necessarily that Greece will send a Stefania vol.2 because Amanda apparently is not… please listen to her music and think a bit before you write.

Stefania is still relevant and performed in many Greek events. Duska is not as relevant but is active in the Greek music scene. Amanda hasn’t even been to Greece for years before submitting her song
