After winning the Eurovision trophy in Kyiv, Helena Paparizou embarked on a super successful career in both Greece and Sweden. Last year she tried to represent the latter with “Survivor”, our readers’ favourite entry of Melodifestivalen 2014. She didn’t manage to beat Sanna Nielsen, but no matter. Helena will be at the final of Eurovision 2015 announcing the Greek vote! By choosing Helena officials have bypassed last year’s act Freaky Fortune. Looks like they want to put that 20th place behind them…

NERIT, Greece’s national broadcaster announced today that the Greek star will reveal Greece’s douze points to Cyprus on the night.

Andrianna Maggania has been a frequent spokesperson for Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest but will be replaced in May by Helena.

We can not wait to hear the crowds cheering for Helena inside the Wiener Stadthalle!

Helena Paparizou last appeared in the Eurovision Song Contest as the interval act during the 2006 Grand Final performing her single ‘Mambo’ and represented Greece twice in 2005 and 2001. 2015 marks ten years since her victory in Kiev.

Maria Elena Kyriakou will represent Greece in the Semi Final 1 of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 with ‘One Last Breath’ on May 19.

“…the Greek star will reveal Greece’s douze points to Cyprus on the night…”

lol 🙂

I think Cyprus is going to be in the final. It is very possible that almost all Albanians in Greece are going to vote for themselves.

Helena is 100% supporter of us gays & has done campaigns 4 our rights… I really love her songs…She was wasted as she could had done a big music career in Europe… *My Number 1* still remains classic & legendary gay pop anthem 4 gay parties! <3 It even met success in clubs in USA! <3 Oh…I recalled now that when Helena won the 50th EuroVision in USA they were considering to start their own American Vision with their 50 States… <3 🙂 Possibly the Americans will finally go ahead with this plan & begin their own Vision soon! <3… Read more »

That russian b*tch that was commentator of Russia was very ironic about Helena’s leading on Number 1 and she dare to mock us when she presented Russia’s votin points…I hated her! I wanted to slap her hard..! & Helena only got 4 points by Russia..
Helena not only won fair & deserved absolutely to win but in the pre contest season before Kiev’s EuroVision she was the absolute big hot favorite to win…She was on number #1 in all polls & on the betting odds! <3

Helena won with 230 points ONLY…. When Sakis Rouvas actually got 252 points instead in 2004.. I’m sure that this happened because it was our year with the Olympics so whole Europe voted our song….We got points from every single f***ing euro trash nation 😛 😉 Even the baltic countries that never vote us did.. That was really unfair 4 Helena to win with 22 points less than Sakis’ points…If Sakis would had competed another year but 2004 he would definitely received way less points…Under 200 possibly.. Look what happened to him in 2009…He was hyped even as big hot… Read more »

I wonder who her number one is…

Just Mario..
Guest
Oh absolutely….That b*tch that was presenting our points every year was really awful! They should had fired her ages ago! And i can imagine how much money she must got from our national broadcaster.. The crew stuff that were been working on our national broadcasting channel ERT/NERIT were getting paid with really high salaries.. We should only hire famous & popular people to either presenting our votes or 4 being commentators in the TV…To hire unknown people like her really hurts the popularity of EuroVision here in Greece.. Years ago…In 2004 & 2005 when we won with Helena the tv… Read more »

Sadly Cyprus won’t make the finals this year xD So we will see Greece giving the 12 to another country

I dont understand why Greek tv had the previous spokesperson.. her pronounciation was really really bad. and for 5 years.. that is complete insanity.

George
Guest

Oh thank God! This Andrianna Maggania whatever was the worst spokesperson for five consecutive years. Her English pronounciation was awful.I was ashamed every time she had to anounce our top points. I’m very happy Helena will be our spokesperson this year, as I’m a big fan of her.
‘By choosing Helena officials have bypassed last year’s act Freaky Fortune. Looks like they want to put that 20th place behind them…’ Well, actually we never had a former correspondent anounce our points since now.

i think they will give 12 to albania i think that our 12 points ( from the netherlands will go to estonia,10 to sweden and 8 to belgium
7 to slovenia
6 to norway
5 to albania (my favourite)
4 to germany
3 to spain
2 to latvia
1 to poland
it might seem a little weird but i think countries like latvia,poland will give a good live performance

@ ?ikos

I think that Greece’s 12 points will go to Italy this year. I doubt that the jury will give top points to Albania, just like they didn’t give top points to Armenia last year.

Nikos

Cyprus won’t qualify so we will probably give our 12 to Albania. I can see us giving Italy and Spain high points too this year.

GGL

Greece usually gives 12 or 10 to cyprus and albania. We cant avoid that. If they dont qualify…. everything can happen. Who expected greece to give 12 to austria and 8 to the netherlands last year????

Or you can say we have a taste for the more “outlandish” winners (Conchita and Lordi) instead of the massively super-popular scandinavian ones (“Fairytale and “Euphoria”) 🙂

Well I don’t think Cyprus will be in the final this year, so we will probably be spared of the indignity of Helena anouncing 12 points for the terrible cypriot song. Greece gave 12 points to Austria in 2014, Azerbaijan in 2013, France in 2011 (Vassili Amaury’s only 12), the UK in 2009 (Jade Ewen’s only 12), Armenia in 2008 and Finland in 2006. So once you take Cyprus out of the equation, there is quite a lot of dispersal in our recent results and we don’t always give top points to the winner (Conchita and Lordi are the two… Read more »

I Will NEVER 4get That Feeling Helena!
Helena was the clear hot favorite to win the Vision in 2005! <3 😀 It was really unfortunate that 5 countries did not award us any points… Monaco gave us 10 points in 2004 but none in 2005…So weird… Ukraine gave us 10 points in 2004 but none in 2005…And it was even the host country.. The baltic countries of Latvia & Estonia gave us zero points as usual…Very typical for the baltic lands to never vote our beautiful songs…What a shame really.. Belarus did not vote us because they were angry that their act Angelica was eliminated on the… Read more »
