After all the speculations and the usual Eurovision madness in Greece, the Greek broadcaster, ERT, cleared up all the rumours in a brief press release.
A dynamic team, consisting of the dream team Dimitris Kontopoulos, Fokas Evaggelinos and Demy, will represent the country in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kiyv.
Soon, ERT will broadcast a special show for the Greek National Final, including 3 songs performed by Demy, that will be put under televote and online voting. The song with the most number of votes will represent the country in Eurovision and become Demy’s performing act. Read more information about the Greek Dream team here.
So who’s Demy, the next Greek Eurovision representative?
Demy, the 2012 Best New Artist winner at the MAD VMA, begun her career back in 2011 with great success. Born in 1991, the 25 year old singer appeared first in Midenistis’ song Mia Zografia, a song which became massive hit in the country. In the years to come, she collaborated with major names in the Greek music industry.
In 2013, she performed the 2008 Eurovision winning song Believe alongside Dima Bilan during the Eurosong 2013 national final.
Last June, Demy performed together with the 2016 Bulgarian representative, Poli Genova, her song If love was a crime, with a combination of Greek, English and Bulgarian lyrics.
In late 2016 and after 3 months of daily rehearsals, she’s co-starring with Despina Vandi at the greek version of the world famous musical Mama mia from ABBA.
