Cyprus’ Andrew Lambrou “Break a Broken Heart” — Interview after Eurovision 2023 first rehearsal

About his staging, Andrew Lambrou said: “So really wanted the visuals to complement the song. I feel within myself and the team feels it too that this is a big feelings song. It’s got some big notes in there. It’s got that ethereal type of vibe”.

Andrew spoke in length about his love for Cyprus, including his Cypriot roots. He recently travelled to his ancestral homeland and met some of his relatives, which left a deep impression on him.

He told our William: “[Visiting Cyprus] was one of the most amazing moments in my life. I’m not just saying that to you. It was an extremely emotional day. To understand my roots and to understand where my family comes from after hearing so many stories for 24 years of my life from my grandparents and my uncles”.

“I met people that I had never met before but they are my family members. I could see the resemblance with the people at home, I remember stepping foot into Kathikas, which was the first village I went to and I just started to tear up, I don’t know why I started tearing up. It was just so incredibly special. So, I have this incredible energy with me that I’ve brought from there I’m extremely grateful for”.

“For Cyprus, I’m so proud to be a Greek-Cypriot Australian, and I’m really proud of my roots and what my family has brought back to Australia. And I think over this Eurovision journey, Cyprus has embraced me, which is something I’m incredibly grateful for. I really feel that love, I feel that love from many parts of the world, including Australia”.

“Eurovision is about bringing the world together”.
