Greece: Sarbel says Yassou

by Stella Floras 82 views

Sarbel, who will be flying the flag for Greece in Helsinki, spoke to about himself, his immediate plans, his favourite entries and his views on the contest.

By monitoring the fans� reactions, the polls and the betting odds one can tell that there is no clear favourite this year, although Yassou Maria ranks high in most. That means that it is pretty much up to you and your performance to win this. How much does that weigh on your shoulders?

Well, I think that that is what everybody has to do. It all depends on all of our performances and all of our singing. We all have to try our best cause year after year it becomes more difficult. As far as the weight on my shoulder goes, I don�t really feel pressured since as I said before I�m giving to this contest and to Greece my all, I�m doing my best.

Can you tell us a bit about the staging of the song in Helsinki? Will we see anything different from the act that won you the Greek final?

I can�t say much about that since the priority now is the promo tour, which I enjoy very much. Every minute of it is very exciting.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
