Take a dive, into my eyes, yeah the eyes of a lioness… Before enjoying her on the Eurovision stage, it’s time we witnessed Eleni Foureira performing for the first time a live acoustic version of her song Fuego. But it isn’t all as expected…

What about an… alternative Fuego?

The Cypriot entrant might be presenting the first part of her Eurovision entry with live vocals, but this acoustic cover of the track is totally different from the original pop and uptempo one. Being in relaxed mood in the studio, Eleni Foureira interprets her Eurovision entry joined by her colleague Vaggelis Karavellakis, who’s playing the piano. Through this work, Alex Papaconstantinou‘s song is presented… as a powerful ballad!

Eleni Foureira has shared this acoustic cover with her friends and fans on social media. You may watch her video right below. Could Fuego succeed as a ballad too?
