Eurovision 2023: Greece’s First Rehearsal!

Next up on the stage of Eurovision Song Contest 2023 is Greece. Victor Vernicos with his songWhat They Sayis ready for his first rehearsal on the stage of M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool!

Who is Victor Vernicos?

Victor Vernicos is the youngest artist participating in Eurovision 2023 and in fact the youngest Greek participant ever! Victor might be young but he’s got big dreams!Victor has been involved in music since he was 4 years old. He has taken vocal and guitar lessons, while he has also attended music technology seminars. In 2021 he released his first song in which he wrote music, lyrics but also produced it himself. He is now representing Greece in Eurovision Song Contest 2023 with a song that he wrote himself when he was 14 years old.

The Rehearsal

If Victor is nervous about performing in such a huge arena at such a young age, it doesn’t show – he’s giving this both vocal power and some great on-stage energy, backed up by multiple giant Victors on the LED wall.

His signature dance move is an infectious bounce that will have the arena jumping next Thursday – Ed Sheeran is one of his musical influences, and you can definitely feel the Sheeran vibe in What They Say. A confident and uplifting performance, and the Greek delegation should be very happy with that.

Costume wise, it’s the same shorts and jacket vibe as Romania’s Theodor yesterday, but less yellow.

Update: In the final runthrough for Greece, we’ve got the added bonus of some low smoke, because Victor is ON FIRE!


The second rehearsal of Greece will take place on Friday 5/5, when we will have a better picture of what we will see from Victor on the Eurovision stage, as we will have the official TV snippet.
