It is a fact, ERT a few minutes ago revealed the title of the song that will represent Greece at the 65th Eurovision Song Contest, in May in Rotterdam. The committee of the Greek public television decided that out of the five songs that Stefania’s synthetic team submitted to the crisis, Last Dance is the one that will be the 41st Greek entry in the contest!
The ERT Press Release:
Με το τραγούδι «Last dance» και τη Stefaniaη Ελλάδα στην Eurovision 2021
Η σχετική απόφαση ελήφθη από κοινού από την επιτροπή που συγκροτήθηκε στην ΕΡΤ για την επιλογή του τραγουδιού, σε συνεργασία με την καλλιτεχνική ομάδα της Στεφανίας στην οποία ανατέθηκε η επιμέλεια της συμμετοχής στην 65η Eurovision, ύστερα από ακρόαση πέντε τραγουδιών που προτάθηκαν από τους δημιουργούς. Υπενθυμίζεται ότι η Ελλάδα θα εμφανιστεί στον Β΄ Ημιτελικό, που έχει προγραμματιστεί στις 20 Μαΐου 2021.
Stefania’s “last dance” with a recipe for success
Stefania (Stefania Lymperakaki), now 18 years old, will have another opportunity to represent Greece in the Eurovision contest, after its cancellation last year due to the pandemic. With a completely different song from SUPERG!RL, Stefania hopes to move the audience of Europe and Australia, achieving a very good result.
Dimitris Kontopoulos, ARCADE and Sharon Vaughn, all important creators with parchments inside and outside the contest, hope that 2021 will be the year of Greece. Fokas Evangelinos is preparing to do a great job, making another stage presentation that will be discussed.
The next steps of the Greek delegation
On Sunday 10/1 Stefania is coming to Greece again, in order to make the final recording of Last Dance. The song is orchestrated and as a production is in its final form. The video clip will take place in February, with director Kostas Karydas as director for the second consecutive year.
The presentation of the song will take place in March, without having yet decided how. Do not forget that at the end of March, the Greek delegation must deliver to the EBU the live on tape video, while at the meeting of the HoDs, which is scheduled for March 15, in addition to the video clip, it must have submitted the complete concept of the stage appearance.
ERT’s expectations for Last Dance are high
Both the artistic team and ERT have high expectations from the Greek entry this year. Everyone’s goal is to place high in the standings, achieving the best result of Greece in the last 10 years in the contest.
Eurovisionfun is one of the lucky ones who listened to the song and we agree that this targeting is completely realistic. The song is faithful to the musical current of the time (80s pop), but with a modern orchestration, highlighting in the best way the voice skills of Stefania. It could very well be a song by Dua Lipa, while it also stands out lyrically.
It also has messages for the difficult situation we all experienced in 2020, with young people “missing” important moments, from the most beautiful period of their lives, but the future must be bright, since it can not and will not be the last dance…
We remind you that Greece will compete in the first part of the second semifinal of Eurovision 2021, on May 20.
