This May, Greece will be represented by female soloist Demy at the 62nd Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, Ukraine. Dimitris Kontopoulos has prepared three songs to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest, only one of which will actually be chosen when performed in Greece’s national selection on March 6th. All three songs are being performed in English, each song will be in a different style with one being a dance track and another a ballad, the style of the third song she said will be a surprise. Earlier this month, Demy recorded parts of her national selection entries with the ERT Orchestra.
Dimitris is a well-known composer and producer, especially when it comes to the Eurovision Song Contest having written six entries to date including ‘You Are the Only One’ by Sergey Lazarev for Russia last year and ‘Shady Lady’ by Ani Lorak for Ukraine in 2008. Earlier this week Sergey Lazarev and Ani Lorak visited the studio of Dimitris Kontopoulos to listen to the three possible entries. Ani Lorak is said to have described one of the three songs as a “beautiful composition”.
The music videos for the three competing songs will be filmed in Odessa, Ukraine. Odessa has been chosen as the location for the video clips, not only due to its location within the host country of this year’s contest, but also due to its Greek elements.
