Although she earlier announced never to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest again, this year's Dutch representative Glennis Grace feels like taking revenge for her semifinal elimination at next year's contest in Greece.
“Although I said never to participate again, I also feel the desire to take revenge now,” explains Glennis Grace. “That's partly because the contest will be taking place in Athens and I have good memories about this place. They were the first to invite me to come and sing in their national final and by far I got the most fanmail from Greece.”
Glennis built up a good relation with the Greek delegation in Kyiv. Glennis will soon be visiting Athens again for TV performances and the Greek Tourist Board offered her a holiday on one of the Greek isles. On top of that all the composers of Helena Paparizou's My number one offered the Dutch singer a couple of new songs.
Glennis Grace is looking forward to a big concert she will be giving in the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam, later this year, and doesn't rule a new attempt at the Eurovision Song Contest next year in Greece. “If a country is still looking for a singer to represent them next year, they can always call me. So who knows?”
Representing the Netherlands, Glennis Grace finished 15th in the semifinal of the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest.
