Biography and career
Ivi Adamou was born on 24 November 1993 in Paralimni, Famagusta, to a Greek Cypriot father and a Bulgarian mother. She is one of the three children of her family; she has two sisters, one older and one younger. At the age of 9, she got on the stage for first time and participated in a music competition where she competed with the song "Kaka Paidia" by Anna Vissi and managed to win the competition. Since that competition, she started music theory, vocal lessons, and piano which allowed her to acquire the suitable skills to win prizes in several local song competitions.
At the age of 15 and during her second year at the lyceum, Adamou auditioned for The X Factor and as she managed to make it through the live shows, she had to be travelling from Cyprus to Greece. Following her participation in the second series of the Greek version of the X Factor she signed a contract with Sony Music Greece and since then she lives in Greece, where she studied at the Panteion University. Even though she had started a musical career, she decided to study sociology. She graduated and received her diploma in 2015.
2009–10: The X Factor
Between 2009 and 2010, Adamou took part in the second series of the Greek version of The X Factor, ending in sixth place. During her time on the show, she listed Beyoncé as her biggest influence, as well as Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston. Nearly all the songs she performed during the show were in the English language with only one of them being in the Greek language.
Adamou sang "Just Dance" on the first live show and she received positive reviews by the judges. In the second and third live show, she sang P!nk's "Just Like A Pill" and Kelly's "Because of You" respectively and she once again received positive reviews with the latter one being honoured as one of the best performances in the show until then. However, with her performance of "Papa Don't Preach" by Madonna in the fourth live show she received negative reviews, with Nikos Mouratidis stating that the song didn't suit to her voice. For the next three live shows, she performed "When I Grow Up", "Hurt" and "Halo" and despite her unsuccessful performance in the fourth live show, they were positively reviewed by the judges. On the eighth live she performed her first Greek song, "Hristougenna" along with "All I Want For Christmas Is You".
On the ninth live show Adamou performed "Celebration", making it the second song of Madonna that she performed. She also had a duet with her teammate, Nini; the two performed Anna Vissi's "Dodeka". On the tenth live show she performed "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" and even though she received mostly positive reviews, Mouratidis had negative opinion on the performance just like he did on her previous performance. On the eleventh live show, she performed another song from the Pussycat Dolls, "Hush Hush". For first time, Adamou was in bottom two with Hovig but she was saved by the judges. In the final showdown, she chose to perform "I Have Nothing", the song she sang in the bootcamp.
On the twelfth live show, she performed for second time, a song from Christina Aguilera. Even though she was one of the favourites to win, she was eliminated during the twelfth week, where she came at bottom two against her teammate Nini Shermandini. She was voted to stay in by George Levendis and Nikos Mouratidis and Nini was voted by Katerina Gagaki and George Theofanous. Even though it was tied, Theofanous' vote counted twice and therefore Adamou was eliminated. After her elimination, a feud started between Adamou's label Sony and Theofanous; the record label wanted Adamou to return because of the fake results, as stated by the media.
