Greece- Cyprus: The party

by Stella Floras 53 views

Last night, the Greek and the Cypriot delegation held their official party at the Lux club in Helsinki. In a packed Lux club the Greek and Cypriot delegations received their guests at about 10.00 last night. The two host singers Sarbel and Evridiki came to the club straight after the Big Four party where Sarbel made an appearance and Evridiki performed a couple of songs.

Dima Koldun and Philip Kirkorov joined the party early but Dima did not perform. The party caught fire when Sarbel took the floor to dance to previous Eurovision Song Contest hits while being joined by members of the press and fans. He then went on to sing Yassou Maria and some of his older songs to an appreciative audience. Later he was joined by Evridiki, the Cypriot representative, who also sung her entry Comme ci, comme ça and joined the crowd on the dance floor.

Olivia Lewis, the Maltese represenative and Kenan Dogulu, respresenting Turkey, joined their Greek colleagues on the Lux stage later. Olivia performed Vertigo and Kenan, who arrived a little later,Shake it up shekerim. Kenan and Sarbel had another go on the stage later and they left together when the party finished in the early hours. In between the crowd danced to favourite Eurovision evergreens played by DJ Andonis Karatzikos, president of OGAE Greece, members of whom where there to support the Greek singers with their enthusiasm.

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.
