Helena Paparizou, one-third of the now defunct band Antique, and the winner of Eurovision 2005, loves a bit of Melodifestivalen. She placed fourth in the 2014 Swedish national selection with her song “Survivor.” And earlier this week she performed at Lotta på Liseberg, a Swedish summer festival in which former Melodifestivalen contestants take to the stage to perform their greatest hits. This year, as well as Helena, we will see former Melodifestivalen stars such as Charlotte Perrelli, Eric Saade, Robin Stjernberg and Linus Svenning.

Helena performed her 2014 Melodifestivalen entry “Survivor” and another song called “Don’t Hold Back on Love”. You can see her two performances below.

Helena came out with the same passion and fire that we love. She was ferocious—just like she was during our interview with her at Melodifestivalen earlier this year. Lady does not hold back and she isn’t afraid to express herself.

Helena Paparizou finished third at Eurovision in 2001 as part of Antique, singing “Die For You”. In 2005 she won with “My Number One”.

@ ChArleSSHOLE What’s wrong with you? I’m reading your comments from the MF period and I can’t understand how can you offend an artist that is so modest and adorable. You always question about her vocal skills and blame her without arguments. Have you ever watched a single live performance of her concerts in Greece or??? I’m not saying that she’s singing like Maria Callas (do you welcome her vocal skills or she was worse that Ellen Benesomething wth her Birds?) but she has a wonderfull voice. You constantly express your hate and i really can’t understand the reason that… Read more »

she is not as loved in sweden as she is in greece simply because she has not performed much here or cared about sweden. simply because the greek music market is very easy to break into while the swedish music market (the third largest in the world) is quite a task to make an impact in.

but she is swedish..

Well, Helena’s parents are Greek so I believe she is a Swedish-born Greek singer. Of course Sweden is also her homeland. But as a Greek person I can assure you that Helena is beyond loved here. She is a superstar. It really is sad that Sweden hasn’t showed the same love to such a talented singer. I remind you that she came 4th in Melodifestivalen because of the juries and not thanks to the people who voted.

The song is called “Don’t Hold Back on Love” and it is included in her latest English album called “One Life”.
