Greece: Demy or Kalomira for Eurovision 2017?

The Eurovision drama and uncertainty in Greece is unending, with broadcaster ERT changing their mind about how they’ll choose their 2017 entry every other day. Nothing has been made official yet. In the meantime, two stars that fans repeatedly beg to see on the Eurovision stage have said they want to go or would at least consider it. They are Demy — Greece’s two-time wiwivision representative — and Eurovision 2008 star Kalomira.

Demy at Eurovision 2017?

Earlier this week Demy gave a telling interview on the Greek talk show Ola, saying that she really wants to do Eurovision. She’s not beating around the bush either. As she said:

We’re in talks, we’re looking for a song. We don’t know what the process will be yet, but I want to do Eurovision after I finish my other projects.

At the same time, legendary Eurovision songwriter Dimitris Kontopoulos, who was rumoured to be cooperating with Demy for Eurovision earlier this year, posted a photo saying he’s been in the studio recording new music. He tagged Eurovision and Fokas Evangelinos.

Dimitris has written many Eurovision hits including Russia’s “You Are The Only One” and Azerbaijan’s “Hold Me”, and Fokas has overseen stage direction for plenty of Eurovision entries including “You Are The Only One” and “My Number One”. Could they be preparing a song and show for Demy?

It's this time of the year ???? #music

Kalomira to return to Eurovision in 2017?

As we reported a few weeks ago, Kalomira, who achieved third place for Greece at Eurovision 2008, recently returned to Greece after being in New York state for several years. She recently stated that she wouldn’t say no to a Eurovision comeback before 2018.

And then yesterday Kalomira posted a video on her Instagram account, informing her fans that she’s back in the studio recording a new song.

Back in the studio!!

Even more titillating is the fact that Kim Diamantopoulos, an up-and-coming Greek artist, uploaded a picture of him, Kalomira and Konstantinos Pantazis recording together.

Konstantinos is the man who wrote Kalomira’s Eurovision 2008 song “Secret Combination”. Perhaps he and Kalomira are preparing their comeback together?

So what do you think? Could either of these ladies be in the running to sing at Eurovision? And would you want to see them in Kyiv? Let us know in the comments section below.
