Thomai Apergi is returning to Eurosong after a one-year absence. This time, she has chosen to perform a Greek-language entry, which combines pop and jazz with a bit of Greek pizazz. Did her blend slip down easy? Read on to find out…

Sami: I liked Thomai’s “One Last Kiss” much more, but this isn’t bad. Thomai sounds great and the song flows nicely. Even if the song is pretty much the same until the last 30 seconds, you don’t get bored because of its catchy rhythm and Thomai’s presence. I still wish the song would speed up way earlier though..,

Score: 6/10

William C: Nice (a very Greek) intro…but then the voice come in. It’s jazzy but hopelessly repetitive. It reaches its greatest heights when the tempo picks up close to the end. The music becomes more interesting and hides any faults in her vocals. Overall an okay song, but not one I want to represent Greece.

Score: 5.5/10

William A: Thomai has beautiful teeth and perfectly sculpted eyebrows. I enjoy the way she moves her body and her very expressive face. Notice that I’ve said nothing about the song. It’s entertaining for a minute, but gets very old very fast. Next.

Score: 4/10

Max: I’m a sucker for a song in Greek.  Thomai has left ‘One Last Kiss’ in the past and come back a million times stronger.  This song is so full of culture and history — I just adore the use of the sirtaki throughout the track. If I close my eyes I can pretend I’m at a Greek wedding surrounded by smashing plates and ouzo, and that ain’t a bad thing!  Any song that shouts ‘OPA’ whilst people simultaneously clap is a winner for me. If Thomai can carry this off on the night then Vienna better watch out.

Score: 9/10

Billy: Thomai returns to Eurosong with a much better entry. It has her signature jazzy style, but also essential Greek elements. To me, this is tried and tested. Greece has never failed with such songs, and it is summed up in 3 letters: “O-P-A”. The lyrics are nonsense, but the music and tempo change at the end are so good that I can ignore that. It’d work well in those old Greek movies with people eating, having fun and dancing. And I would love to see Greeks dancing in Wiener Stadthalle. It was the only entry of Eurosong 2015 that made me say “That’s it!”

Score: 10/10

Deban: Exaggerated femininity driven by a face caught in the headlights is what makes this entry slightly more interesting. However, not interesting enough to secure my endorsement. This is pure Greek pop masquerading as jazz. It nods to the classics, but it’s presentation is fairly bland.

Score: 5/10

Robyn: Listening to this song is like enjoying a spoonful of Nutella – sweet, smooth and nutty. And it’s a very welcome relief after listening to all the shouty ladies in the competition this year. Thomai is super elegant and has a classy, sassy voice. Like the title promises, the song blends jazzy pop with traditional Greek sounds – and it works well. Go on, Greece – pick this one!

Score: 8/10

Patrick: OMG… summer, Greek food, the ocean, the party and of course SIRTAKI! I feel my holiday memories so much. Thomai has improved a lot – I didnt like “One last kiss” but this is a Greek fairytale. This is so extravagant that it could easily stand out in Vienna like nobody else. I can already picture her dancing with the dancers and a stunning sirtaki! Go Thomai – I would love to see you in Austria!

Score: 10/10

WIWI JURY VERDICT: 7.18/10

By the way her name is Thomais not “Thomai”

Thomais reminds me of last year’s Portugal entry. An uplifting song with a strong national flavour and a Barbie singer. A lot of people liked it but alas it missed the final by a single point.

This song is pretty glam. Maybe the 2nd or 3rd best one they have. xd

Come on guys… Thomai has the best song of the night. It may not be excellent, but it still has some power. On how I see it “Jazz and sirtaki” is the only one of the five songs we Greeks can rely on. Shaya’s song may sound catchy but it’s extremely repetitive. C-real have a pretty average song, Barice has a good song but the sirtaki part ruins it, while Maria Elena’s ballad may be good but there are too many ballads this year in the contest. So, it’s just Thomai or Thomai if we want an entry that we… Read more »

I absolutely adore thomai and definitely think this would be a wonderful choice for greece as it will definitely stand out. My only reservation so far is her live vocal ability seeing as her one last kiss performance live was not living up to its expectations. Fingers crossed for thomai though.

Nice enough song…But the greek music is way too much 4 me…I think that they overdid it on this field…It would be very common to hear such song in a greek night club mpouzoukia but its over the top 4 the Vision…I wouldn’t want this to win…Its not my no1 most liked anyway.. We wanted to send something that has vivid the element of Greek music inside so thats why almost all of the songs {especially this one that is the only one being sang in greek language too..} have greek musical instruments.. My rate 4 this is 5 /10… Read more »

It is the middle song for me of the 5, but still I don’t want it to represent us. Team Shaya for the win!

I honestly don’t like the singing and wouldn’t hold out for good live vocals…however the dance break is the best part of the song and I’d rather listen to that for 3 minutes!

I hate this song it is awful I disagree entirely with the people who gave this song 8 or more /10 I hope this does NOT represent Greece, the lyrics also don’t make sense (I’m Greek that’s how I know what the lyrics say)
