The Greek broadcaster ERT has revealed today that Stefania will be representing Greece with a song that is called “Last Dance”. Composed by Dimitris Kontopoulos, ARCADE and Sharon Vaughn, the song was selected from five songs Stefania and her team have submitted to ERT.
The final recording of the song will take place in Greece on the 10th of January with help of creative director Fokas Evangelinos and director Kostas Karydas. The song will be presented in March before the scheduled meeting for Heads of Delegations on the 15th March.
According to Eurovisionfun.com, who have already listened to the song, “Last Dance” has a “modern orchestration” with lyrics that stand out. Its message reflects on the difficult times young people have experienced in 2020, missing out on important events of their lives, however, with a bright future ahead of them so that this doesn’t have to be their ‘last dance’.
18-year-old Stefania Liberakakis will be representing Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam, performing in the second semi final on the 20th May.

Three years later Greece earned their first top 5 finish with Paschalis, Marianna, Robert and Bessy who finished in 5th place with “Mathima solfege”. In 2001 Greece achieved their first top 3 result with Antique and the song “I Would Die For You”. The song became a European hit, and charted across the continent.
