The 2017 Greek representative Demy has begun preparations for her performance on the stage of Kyiv, shortly after the selection of her entry This is love. As interviewed in a Greek TV magazine in Alpha TV, she revealed some key points of her upcoming appearance in the contest.
Speaking in the interview, Demy was asked if there will be 6 performers on stage as is the maximum limit of the EBU. She didn’t reveal the exact number of performers set to appear onstage, however she said that there will surely be less than 6.
The Greek entrant also stated the she will not be dressed in red on the night, as was probably expected after her video clip release.
When it comes to the choreography, she stated that choreographer Fokas Evaggelinos is preparing something very inspiring, as he is accustomed to. Between the slow and dance part of the song, it is going to be an impressive switch.
There are also two more surprises in the performance that Demy confirmed; one in the middle of the song and one a little bit before its ending.
Here you can watch Demy’s interview to the TV magazine and journalist Giannis Poulopoulos (in Greek):
