Greece: Listen to a teaser from Stefania’s “Mucho Calor”!

Shortly before its official release on June 25, Stefania presents a 30-second teaser of her new single entitled, Mucho Calor. The song will be presented for the first time on the stage of MAD VMA 2021!

You also read about the history of the song in our previous article. Mucho Calor has karmic relation to the contest, since three times in the past it came close to representing either Greece or Cyprus, but the final choice was always different.

Mucho Calor was originally submitted to ERT for Eurovision 2020. Although the song was first in the focus group voting that dream team held that year, SUPERG! RL was finally chosen, as a song that Stefania could better support.

Then the composers of the song suggested it to Sandro, who even recorded it and it was one of the songs that RIK had on the table, for the Cypriot representation at Eurovision 2020. But Sandro wanted a song that would have his personal of touch and so the song did not end there either.

With some changes, Mucho Calor, but also with a different title (Inferno), the song was submitted in 2021 to ERT. In fact, the artistic committee of the Greek public television initially wanted this to be the song with which Stefania would represent Greece in Rotterdam. Finally, considering the scenarios for the stage presentation, but also other factors, such as the voting of the juries, Last Dance was chosen.

Russia: Dream Team in Moscow | Preparations for Eurovision 2022 have begun!

Immediately after the end of this year’s contest, Philipp Kirkorov stated that in 2022 he will return to Eurovision for Russia. Dream Team does not seem to lose any time, since Dimitris Kontopoulos and Elias Kokotos are in Moscow, as according to our information, the trip for Eurovision 2022 has just begun!

Russia 1 channel will select the representative of the country for the next competition, so it is easy to understand that in all probability in the project for the next entry of Russia we will see the Dream Team involved. Philipp Kirkorov and Dimitris Kontopoulos will be the creators of the song, Fokas Evangelinos will be the artistic director, while Elias Kokotos will be the project manager.

Two third and one seventh place are the last places of Dream Team with the colors of Russia in the contest and they want this good series to continue.

Dimitris Kontopoulos and Elias Kokotos are in Moscow, for the first processes related to Eurovision 2022. Clearly what matters is the choice of the artist, but also of the song. The Russia 1 channel has proved that they are primarily interested in the television viewing of the competition in the country, so we should not rule out the choice of a big name for Russia next year.

Russia was represented this year by Manizha with the Russian Woman, occupying the ninth place in the grand final:

Initially, as we wrote in our previous articles, it is a song that has nothing to do with Prison, last year’s song of Natalia Gordienko in the contest. It is quite sexy and very special. It is loyal to the pop music scene that is currently breaking ground in Eastern Europe. Characteristic songs of the genre are many recent releases of Svetlana Loboda, Max Barkish, Zivret, Dima Bilan etc.

It is a sound like the one that Maruv first tried to bring to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2019, the Siren Song. The difference between them is that Gordienko’s song is more melodic, while its orchestration is more with western elements.

You have already read about the statements of both Gordienko and Kirkorovas well as others, which predict a very positive result in Eurovision 2021. In our opinion, the chances for the top 5 are high, as it is certain that it will do extremely well in televoting of Eastern Europe but also in Western European countries, where significant populations of the former Soviet states live, as it is a sound very familiar to them.

The title of the song has not been announced yet, but Natalia Gordienko promised us a sweet surprise. The music is written by Dimitris Kontopoulos and Philipp Kirkorov, the lyrics by Sharon Vaughn, the director is Fokas Evangelinos, while the vocal teacher is Victoria Chalkiti. Project manager of the project is Elias Kokotos.

The video clip of the song is expected to be announced by March 8.

Moldova: Producer of a Eurovision winning song predicts top3 for Natalia Gordienko!

The Dream Team is in the final stretch for Moldova‘s entry with Natalia Gordienko in Eurovision 2021. In fact, after the statements for victory of the singer herself, but also of Philipp Kirkorov, a new relevant statement comes to further strengthen our expectations, for the Moldovan entry in the upcoming contest.

“We are preparing the winning song”

Natalia Gordienko, together with Dimitris Kontopoulos and Elias Kokotos, is in the last days in Kiev, where she is preparing the video clip of her song. The information tells us that this is a blockbuster video, which we rarely see in the contest, the costs of which have been borne by the singer herself.

From Kiev and shortly after the official announcement of the Moldovan public television that Natalia Gordienko will represent the country again, the popular singer said that together with Dream Team they are preparing the winning entry in Eurovision 2021.

It is an honor and a privilege to represent Moldova at Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam! I look forward to working with this incredible dream team! We have already started working on creating the winning song in the most important song contest in the world!

“Moldova will be at least in the top 5”

Yana Rukdovskaya, one of the most important music producers in Russia and responsible for Dima Bilan’s two songs in Eurovision, took the baton of statements. Among others is wife of Evgeni Plushenk, the gold medalist in ice skating, who appeared with Dima Bilan on the stage of the competition in 2008.

Yana Rudkovskaya uploading a photo with Philipp Kirkorov saying that she has already heard the song, also knowing many other secrets, in relation to the Moldovan entry (obviously the script of the stage appearance), expresses the certainty that Natalia Gordienko with her song will definitely be in top5 and most likely in top3.

“A sweet surprise with a Greek signature”

The song that both Natalia Gordienko and Philipp Kirkorov presented as a “sweet” surprise has a strong Greek presence. Of course it is a melody by Dimitris Kontopoulos, while the vocal teacher is Victoria Chalkiti. The director is Fokas Evangelinos, while the project manager of the whole project is Elias Kokotos.

As you first read in Eurovisionfun, the new song will have nothing to do with Prison, that is, last year’s participation of Natalia Gordienko. The song will be dance… a lot of dance! Its sound is in a style that flourishes in the countries of Eastern Europe. It’s a piece about sex and youth. Natalia is expected to set fire with her sexy presentation. The song along with the clip is expected to be presented by March 8.

We can assure you since we are lucky to have heard the song, that Yana Rukdovskaya’s prediction is not at all excessive!

Moldova: A “Sweet” surprise is being prepared by the Dream Team for Natalia Gordienko!

Yesterday, the Moldovan public television, TRM, officially confirmed Natalia Gordienko, as the country’s representative in Eurovision 2021.

As you know, the entry of Natalia Gordienko is signed by Dream Team. The song has been composed jointly by Dimitris Kontopoulos and Philipp Kirkorov, while the director will be Fokas Evangelinos.

Just twenty-four hours after the announcement of the Moldovan representative for Eurovision, Philipp Kirkorov, in a post on his social media announced this collaboration with Natalia and the Dream Team, revealing to us that this is a strong collaboration with the Dream Team , to prepare a “sweet” surprise for us.

As you first read at EurovisionFun, the new song will have nothing to do with Prison, last year’s participation of Natalia Gordienko. The song will be dance… a lot of dance! Its sound and not its melody, we can say that it will be reminiscent of Maruv’s song, with which she would represent Ukraine at Eurovision 2019, the Siren SongIt’s a piece about sex and youth. Natalia is expected to set fire with her sexy presentation.

The participation of Natalia Gordienko is signed by Dream Team. The song has been composed jointly by Dimitris Kontopoulos and Philipp Kirkorov, while the director will be Fokas Evangelinos.

The song was recorded in Moscow, as due to travel restrictions Natalia Gordienko could not come to Athens. Vocal coach this time as well as in the case of Uku Suviste was Victoria Halkiti, while the present was given by Philipp Kirkorov, but also the project manager of the project, Elias Kokotos. The recording was made in Vi Studio.

Natalia is currently in Kiev, Ukraine for the shooting of the video clip of the song that will compete in Eurovision 2021. The song along with the clip is expected to be presented by March 8.

Natalia Gordienko has a different strategy for Eurovision 2021. Until then, let us remember Prison, with which he would represent the country of Moldova in last year’s entry:

Moldova: Natalia Gordienko officially announced for Eurovision 2021!

As we informed you in our article on June 23, Natalia Gordienko is going to represent Moldova at Eurovision 2021! Now we have the official confirmation from the country’s public television, TRM.

The members of the TRM Organizing Committee for the European Song Contest met to decide on the conditions under which Moldova is able to choose its representative at Eurovision 2021, under the conditions of the pandemic and the restrictions.

Due to COVID-19, they decided not to hold a national final this year, as the members of the Organizing Committee noted that only the creative staff and the minimum technical staff required to organize the pre-selection show exceed the limit of 50 people imposed.

So they decided to give Natalia Gordienko the opportunity to represent Moldova at Eurovision 2021, as last year’s event was canceled due to a coronavirus.

As you first read at EurovisionFun, the new song will have nothing to do with Prison, last year’s participation of Natalia Gordienko. The song will be dance… a lot of dance! Its sound and not its melody, we can say that it will be reminiscent of Maruv’s song, with which she would represent Ukraine at Eurovision 2019, the Siren Song. It’s a piece about sex and youth.

Stefania: “I will take the 12 points from The Netherlands”! (Video)

In the show of the TV station SKAI, Love It with Ioanna Maleskou, Stefania and one of the composrs of “Last Dance”, Dimitris Kontopoulos, were connected live a while ago.

Directly from Amsterdam, where the recording of the greek entry for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest is taking place, they talked about the song and the upcoming contest.

Regarding “Last Dance”, Dimitris Kontopoulos stressed that:

Yesterday’s recording went very well and we have a few more hours left tonight in Rotterdam. “Last Dance” is a pop track with some 80s elements, a modern track in a genre that is currently playing around the world. The message of the song is that sometimes, we think the end has come, and when that comes there is always a new beginning. It is optimistic, it can be called “Last Dance” but in essence it conveys the message that… this is not the last dance!

Stefania in turn expressed her joy that she will represent Greece in the contest:

They ask me why I am not participating again for the Netherlands and I answer that I have already represented the Netherlands (in JESC) and now I want to go and bring something better for Greece. I know that Fokas will help me a lot and we will bring a good result for Greece.

Dimitris Kontopoulos, jokingly when asked by a journalist whether there will be a Greek element in the song, said that:

The dancers on stage will be Greek, the Greek flag will be everywhere I hope, when we get the points. This will be the Greek element!

Stefania was sure that she will get the 12 points from the Netherlands, the country that was born and lives with her family.

I will get the 12 points from the Netherlands!

At the end of the interview, Stefania gave us another flawless interpretation of last year’s song, “SUPERG! RL”.

You can watch the whole interview in the video below (it’s in Greek):

Greece: This is how Stefania’s song for Eurovision 2021 will be decided! EXCLUSIVE

The time for decissions in Greece have arrived! In the coming days, ERT will announce the way it will choose the song with which Stefania will participate in the 65th Eurovision Song Contest. Eurovision Fun exclusively brings you the latest information.

Five songs for Stefania

As it has already become known, Stefania on her last trip to Athens, recorded five potential songs for Eurovision. Among them there is a song that the young singer and her team choose in order to be the song that will be the Greek entry in the contest.

The composers of these five songs, of course, are the same group that signed SUPERG!RL. Dimitris Kontopoulos, Sharon Vaughn and ARCADE.

ERT’s decision to select the song

In the coming days, the ERT team that deals with the contest, will meet once again, in order to make the final decisions on how to choose the Greek entry in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest.

According to all our exclusive information, the preferred solution is the internal choice. The new television data due to the pandemic, the time limits that are narrowing at a time when this year requires more time for the artistic team to prepare the live on tape video, but also the difficulties that exist in travel, made ERT revise the initial of her plans, which was to conduct an open selection.

The above practically means that a process similar to the one followed in the last two years will probably be chosen. Before one wonders why there is no an online process like the one in the Czech Republic or in part in Israel, the answer is that it is not possible at the moment. Stefania recorded 5 demos, they are not complete recordings. If this choice was hypothetically chosen, Stefania would have to come to Greece again in the next few days (to pass the necessary quarantine), complete the recordings and then proceed to the online voting. Another month would be wasted, while the candidate songs would have to be made public so early, something the artistic team does not want.

However, fortunately, and if the situation with the pandemic is brought under control, ERT intends even next year to hold a national final for the selection of the Greek entry, listening to the desire of many artists, but also fans.

ERT loves Eurovision and if we think about the shift of Greek public broadcaster to a commercial and entertainment program this year, we are optimistic that we will see beautiful things in the part that concerns the contest.
