Just a little earlier, the Greek music television station MAD announced the nominees for the 14th MAD Video Music Awards (MAD VMA ’17). As expected, among the nominees there are several Greek past participants from the Eurovision Song Contest who have each released hits over the past 12 months.

MAD VMA ’17: A Eurostars affair!

The Greek 2017 participant Demy has won 10 MAD Awards over the last few years and in 2017, after her appearance at Eurovision, is nominated in 5 categories. With the video clip of her Eurovision entry This is love, Demy is in contention to get 3 awards and these are:

  • Best Female Modern
  • Best Dance Video
  • Video of the Year

The young singer is also nominated in the category of Best Ballad Video with her ballad song Tha meineis feugontas (You’ll stay when you’re leaving).

It is also more than impressive that Demy is one of the artists that is nominated for the award of Superfans of the Year, amongst the biggest names within the Greek pop music industry.
