Ellinikós Telikós 2017 took place last night; we already knew who Greece’s representative for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 was, but this was to determine the song she would sing. “This Is Love” was crowned the winner, so expect to hear Demy performing that on the Eurovision stage.
All three songs were written by Dimitris Kontopoulos, a writer who has previously written six Eurovision entries, all of which have appeared in the top ten of the Grand Final. No pressure Demy. “This Is Love” was chosen over “Angels” and “When The Morning Comes Around”.
Watch Eurovision 2017’s Demy’s Music Video For “This Is Love” Here:
The music video has a black and white filter on apart from her stunning red dress, which totally stands out. Her professionalism is obvious in the pure performance visual, that is completely filled with energetic vibes that we cannot wait to see her unleash on stage.
Could we be heading back to Greece for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest? To do that, Demy will have to win. The last time the country won was in 2005 with Helena Paparizou with 230 points, who sang “My Number One”. Last year, Argo failed to make it to the Grand Final with “Utopia Land”, making it the first time Greece hasn’t made the Grand Final.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 is definitely going to be competitive this year. The semi-finals will take place on 9 May and 11 May, with the Grand Final taking place on 13 May 2017. Last year, Jamala won with “1944”, bringing the contest to her home country of Ukraine. It will be held at the International Exhibition Centre in Kyiv. Who will win? Time will tell.
