Ivi Adamou was born and raised in Agia Napa, Cyprus. She was internally elected to represent Cyprus in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan. The song “La La Love” was the winning song of the National Final.
The song was named as a “halfway house between Jennifer Lopez’s “On the Floor” . Critics described it as an “upbeat entry and does appear quite refreshing” and said that despite the fact that the song has been a fan favorite, it won’t be able to win. They were right about that, but she did very well. The song finished 7th in its semi-final and 16th in the grand final, Cyprus’s best result since Lisa Andreas came 5th in the 2004 grand final with “Stronger Every Minute”
