Biography and career
Ivi Adamou was born on 24 November 1993 in Ayia Napa, Famagusta, to a Greek Cypriot father and a Bulgarian mother. She has two sisters, one older and one younger. Music theory, vocal lessons, and piano allowed her to acquire the suitable skills to win prizes in several local song competitions; at the age of 9, her participation in a competition in Larnaka won her a first place finish with the song "Kaka Paidia" by Anna Vissi. After 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 is currently studying at the Panteion University. Even though she had started a musical career she decided to study sociology.
2009–10: The X Factor
In 2009–2010, she took part in the second series of the Greek version of The X Factor, ending in sixth place. She lists Beyoncé as her biggest influence, as well as Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston. Almost all the songs she performed 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 honored as one of the best performances until then. However, with her performance of "Papa Don't Preach" in the fourth live show she received negative reviews, with Nikos Mouratidis stating that the song didn't suit to her voice. After her unsuccessful performance of the fourth live, she tried to give her best at the next live shows. She performed "When I Grow Up", "Hurt" and "Halo" at the next three live shows, which once again 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", which was the second song of Madonna that she performed. She also had a duet with her team mate, Nini and they 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 as well 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 favorites to win, she was eliminated during the twelfth week, where she came at bottom two against her team mate 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 "fight" started between Sony and Theofanous while the record label wanted Adamou to return because of the fake results, as the media stated.

Style and influences
Since her appearance in the X Factor, Adamou has been performing pop songs. Although almost all the song she performed in the competition were in English, the songs she later released for her discography were mostly in Greek. As she said in an interview, she is influenced by both the Greek and American pop music. Adamou has named Beyoncé, Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston as her idols and her biggest influences. She admires Whitney Houston who has been her favorite singer since her childhood and Beyoncé whom admires for her work and talent. She has also said [about Beyoncé] that she would love to work with her.
Since a child I've listened to Whitney Houston and I admire Beyoncé for her industriousness. Every time she [Beyoncé] has an appearance, she tends to have the best result which shows how much she has worked to reach the perfect.—Ivi Adamou, 
Adamou has also cited Elena Paparizou and Sakis Rouvas as her influences with the latter one coming close to him during The X Factor where Sakis was the host. She has said [about Sakis] that she wasn't a big fan of him before the show, but she admired him when she met and got to know more about him and his personality.
Adamou is the second child in her family. She has two other sisters one older, Despina and one younger, Cleopatra. She is currently studying sociology at Panteion University, in Athens. She declares that she is currently not in any relationship, even though the media said that she was in relationship with Michalis Kouinelis from Stavento. Later, in one interview, she denied the rumors. She also said that she was never in love, since she went to Athens to study. In 2014 though, Kouinelis revealed that they were in a relationship since 2013 and not since 2010 as the media said. The two now live together in Athens as Adamou has been studying there.
During and after Eurovision, the media reported that Adamou and Eleftheria Eleftheriou were not in a good situation. Both singers stated that everything was okay between them. However, during their performance in the 2013 Greek national final, Eleftheria was to give her hand to Adamou, while Adamou was waving at the audience. Later, Eleftheria said that Adamou didn't do this intentionally. She also said that they are in a good situation.
Adamou has met Beyoncé during her participation at the Greek X Factor, where she won a ticket for her concert in Athens. She has also met Jennifer Lopez at her concert in Stockholm as Adamou was there due to her concert tour.

The same year, she took part in the Greek campaign against breast cancer along with other Greeks including Katia Dandoulaki, Zeta Makripoulia and Dimitra Galani. In 2011, Adamou was appointed as the Young Ambassador for the rights of the children by the HFC-UNCRC Policy Center. In 2013, she performed at the solidarity concert in Famagusta in order to collect food. In December 2013, she took part in a Christmas Concert organized by the Cypriot radio station Super FM and Giorgos Theofanous along with artists including Elena Paparizou, Eleni Foureira, Demy and Kostas Martakis. The money that were raised from the concert's tickets were given to Radiomarathonios. The performers, apart from their own songs, they performed a Christmas song each along with Theofanous' choir.
