Eurovision fans are still waiting for Greece to confirm that it will compete at Eurovision 2014. But even if it doesn’t, there is still a chance that Greece will be represented in another big way. That’s because Helena Paparizou, the Greek goddess that won Eurovision 2005, is reportedly competing at Melodifestivalen, the Swedish national selection.
Aftonbladet reports that the 31-year-old, who was born and raised in Sweden, will be competing with a song that is “uptempo, catchy and crazy good.” It was penned by Bobby Ljunggren, Henrik Wikström and Sharon Vaughn. Ljungrren, you may remember, wrote Carola’s Eurovision classic “Invincible”, which came fifth in 2006. Of course, he also wrote Anna Bergendahl’s 2010 number “This Is My Life”—the only Swedish entry ever to fail to advance to the final.
Helena finished third at Eurovision 2001 as part of the group Antique. Their song “(I Would) Die for You” made our list of Top 10 Eurovision Songs with Crazy Stalker Lyrics.
